Book Review of Miracle in a Dry Season by Sarah Loudin Thomas

Sarah Loudin Thomas' book Miracle in a Dry Season is a story of forgiveness.  It's set in West Virginia in 1954.  Perla Long and her daughter, Sadie, arrive in Wise, West Virginia hoping to go unnoticed and looking for a fresh start.  Perla wants a place where the mistakes of her past can stay hidden.  When a drought comes to Wise, Perla's unique gift divides the town in two, bringing both gratitude and condemnation.  Casewell Phillips is a bachelor that becomes fond of Perla.  She is everything he is looking for in a woman, but he has a hard time with the sense that she is hiding something.  The drought places the two of them in the middle of a "storm of anger and forgiveness, fear and faith."

I really enjoyed reading this book.  For being a debut novel, it was wonderful!  The story was extremely well written--realistic and heartwarming.  It also had teachable moments.  I also loved the characters--especially Casewell.  If you enjoy Christian fiction, you won't want to miss reading this book!

*I received this book from Bethany House in exchange for an honest review.*
