Wrapped in Rain

This was a gorgeous story, beautifully written. It's a story of redemption and forgiveness; of getting past immense pain to a place of mercy.

Tucker and his brother grew up under the thumb of an abusive, alcoholic father, but wrapped in the love and care of Miss Ella - their hired help. Miss Ella instills a deep faith and love in both boys despite all that their father throws at them.

After Miss Ella passes away, Tuck still hears her voice. As he listens, she is able to guide him through the pain to place of forgiveness.

Set in the deep south, the author paints a beautiful picture that's almost visible as you read. I could hardly put this book down. Not only is it a beautiful, well-written story, but the message of forgiveness comes across loud and clear.

Disclaimer: I received this book for free from Thomas Nelson Publishers through - their book review bloggers program. I wasn't required to post a positive review. These are my own opinions on this book.
