Acclaimed bestselling author Sandra Brown celebrates the
spirit and determination that kept our country proud even through the Great Depression, in this moving tale of a bygone generation
and a strong young widow who must rise above her circumstances.
Barron is determined that even the ravages of the Dust Bowl will not affect the well-ordered life she has built for herself
and her special child, Solly, who lives in a world of his own that even she can’t enter. Aware that he evokes pity and
distrust, Ella holds herself aloof from her small community, but her new boarder, David Rainwater, comes into her life—and
changes it forever. As economic desperation creates bitter social unrest in the town and surrounding farms, Ella finds herself
relying on Mr. Rainwater’s soft-spoken advice and the steely resolve of his convictions. But tensions escalate in the
summer heat, until one violent night everything they believe in will be put to the ultimate test.
Sandra Brown’s Rainwater is a poignant, lyrical
novel that will speak straight to your heart, a story that bears witness to a powerful truth: love is worth whatever price
one must pay for it.
