Rainwater by Sandra Brown

RainwaterRainwater by Sandra Brown

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This novel was VERY different from typical Sandra Brown books. I always find her books interesting, but they are often pretty predicable and formulaic. This unusually captivating book was set in 1934 and dealt with a number of social issues (racism, economic depression, and autism for example) In spite of the historical setting and the serious issues that the characters face within its pages, this novel is essentially a love story - portraying a slowly-developing love between a mature man and woman. I always enjoy a love story that emphasizes the sacrificial, and almost sacred, nature of real love. Rainwater meets that criteria.
