Send Down The Rain By Charles Martin



Allie’s second husband is killed tragically when his 18-wheeler crashes into the rocks near their home in Cape San Blas—the tanker was full of fuel and the explosion could be seen on overhead satellites. She’d already lost the beloved waterfront restaurant her parents started and now losing her husband, no matter how unfulfilling their marriage was, might just push her over the edge.Joseph’s time in Vietnam left him with scars that never seemed to heal. No matter how he’s tried to love or what he’s tried to do since then, he can’t pull himself out of the wreckage of his former life. His trust and security shaken, he isolates himself in a cabin. But every morning, he faithfully pours two cups of coffee, drinking his while he sits with the second, and then pouring out the full cup.It’s no small coincidence that Joseph found a mother and her two young children lost in the woods near his cabin. Or that when he helps them return to family in Florida, he’s near enough to see that explosion. Near enough to know it’s close to home. Near enough to know that his childhood sweetheart needs him.The years have built so much distance between them, but it’s the secrets that may be their final undoing. Send Down the Rain reminds us of the beauty of truth . . . and the power of love to wash away the past.

My Thoughts...

I must say I was captivated by this book Send Down The Rain. Like every great book there are characters that you will  love and a couple that you will love to hate. I enjoyed every aspect of Martin's new book. Although it's not a mystery there are parts of the plot that are mysterious. I also like the fact that the author didn't leave any loose ends in the story. I don't like it when I have to wonder what happened to a character. That is not the case with this book. I really enjoyed reading it.
I gave this book 4 stars, I recommend this one!
