Rainwater will stay with you for a long time after you have read it. This rare and beautiful story focuses on a woman struggling to run a boarding house alone with a child that has special needs. Set in the 1930’s when times were hard and life was uncertain, a man named Mr. Rainwater comes along; he will ultimately change their lives.
Rainwater is an emotional roller-coaster of a read. It has a bittersweet ending but is worth every minute.
Favorite quote from the book: “Even knowing the ending was sad, I wouldn’t have deprived myself the beauty of the story.” Mr. Rainwater was referring to Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway but this sentiment can also apply to Rainwater.
