Miracle in a Dry Season By Sarah Loudin Thomas

In a Drought, It's the Darkest Cloud That Brings Hope
It's 1954 and Perla Long's arrival in the sleepy town of Wise, West Virginia, was supposed to go unnoticed. She just wants a quiet, safe place for her and her daughter, Sadie, where the mistakes of her past can stay hidden. But then drought comes to Wise, and Perla is pulled into the turmoil of a town desperately in need of a miracle.
Casewell Phillips has resigned himself to life as a bachelor...until he meets Perla. She's everything he's sought in a woman, but he can't get past the sense that she's hiding something. As the drought worsens, Perla's unique gift divides the town in two, bringing both gratitude and condemnation, and placing the pair in the middle of a storm of anger and forgiveness, fear and faith.

Sarah Loudin Thomas grew up on a 100-acre farm in French Creek, WV, the seventh generation to live there. Her Christian fiction is set in West Virginia and celebrates the people, the land, and the heritage of Appalachia. Her first novel, Miracle in a Dry Season, releases August 2014. Married with one dog, she now lives in Western North Carolina, which is almost as beautiful as West Virginia.

I really enjoyed this debut novel by Sarah Thomas.
You writes like a seasoned author and you will find that you can not put the book down once you start reading it.
I can't wait to read her next master piece.
Sarah wrote this book so well you can see the characters mature spiritually on each page.
I gave this book 5 stars and I recommend it.
I was given a copy of this book by the publisher for my honest review.

I love that Sarah is from West Virginia and moved to North Carolina just like me!
