Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

Wonderful, simply wonderful. A story of love, healing, and forgiveness sure to grip the heart of every reader.
--Debbie Macomber, New York Times #1 bestselling author

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.

--

This debut novel is splendid. The story is genuine and heartfelt, with just a touch of the Divine. A story of forgiveness and reckoning, and realizing love does cover a multitude of sins. Thomas will be a go-to author after you read Miracle in a Dry Season.
--Rachel Hauck, bestselling author of The Wedding Dress and Once Upon a Prince

Charming, whimsical, and intelligently written, Miracle in a Dry Season is a beautiful debut novel!
--Ann Tatlock, Christy-award winning author of Promises to Keep

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Enlightening and Entertaining 14 août 2016
Par NenetteU - Publié sur Amazon.com

Enlightening and entertaining: two words I'd use to describe this book. With a streak of reading romantic novels set in the past centuries, I thought I was about done writing reviews for them; I rated the last one but I didn't have anything left to say. Not for this one though.

Set in the 1950s in rural America, the story is all about how people are quick to pass judgment on others, while foregoing the wrong they themselves have done and committed. With a romantic tale as the base, and a sprinkling of bible verses here and there, I was moved to a state that I only recall being in when I'm examining my conscience, getting ready for confession. As well, I was a witness to the unfolding of true love, albeit fictitious.

I'd say you gotta get a hold of this book if you need some uplifting of the spirits, or simply to enjoy a wholesome read.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Fast forwards about 10 yrs from where novella left off 18 juin 2015
Par EpicFehlReader - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This story focuses on what happened with Perla, Delilah's teenage niece from Appalachian Serenade. Perla seemed to follow a similar path to Delilah's, as far as leaving town only to find herself coming back years later. In Perla's case, however, Perla is coming back as a young unwed mother of a 5 yr old girl. Perla's now in her twenties, the father of her child a mystery all the town gossips love to marinate on. Perla rekindles a friendship with childhood acquaintance Casewell (a minor character only barely mentioned in Appalachian Serenade). Casewell quickly finds himself falling for Perla, wanting to take care of her and her daughter, Sadie. Perla is definitely interested, but fears her past and the gossip it fuels will kill any chance at a successful relationship ...with anyone. Author Sarah Thomas then works elements of the "Woman At The Well" biblical story into Perla's tale.

The town is going through rough times. There's a severe drought ruining everyone's crops, wiping out back up food supplies for families throughout the community. Some are whispering that the drought is God's way of punishing fornicators, while others argue he's punishing the gossipers obsessing over the fornicators. But Perla has this one quirky thing about her that may help. She can't explain it but whenever she cooks, she never runs out of ingredients. They seem to just replenish themselves! She tries to use this gift to help the townspeople but they cannot let her past go, feeling the food would be tarnished if prepared by a "harlot." Some even label her a witch for her abilities {there were some things in this part of the story that seemed to echo Nathaniel Hawthorne's The Scarlet Letter} Casewell is one of the first to step up and call out his neighbors, saying (in so many words) "Excuse me, but y'all call this Christian behavior?! Girl is trying to help you not starve and you're on about what she does on her own time? Noneya business, that's what that is!"

This was my favorite of the series. I liked the light touches of magical realism woven into Perla's story. I also thought this particular story had a personal message about not being so quick to judge someone solely based off of what you hear about their past, because everyone has their own struggles, doing their best to work through them. I liked how the story encourages people to embrace flaws and past mistakes as just part of how those you love were created and how they grew to be the people they are. Also, how it's never too late to forgive or ask for forgiveness. Beautiful story. There's also a good bit of humor in this novel!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 a lesson in forgiveness and trusting God 28 octobre 2014

A lesson in forgiveness

Miracle in a Dry Season is a great book about forgiveness and trusting God in the dry seasons of life. I enjoyed reading the progression of each of the characters as they were confronted with their preconceived ideas and beliefs.

The first few chapters reminded me of the old TV show “The Waltons” because of some of the characters in the small town of Wise, West Virginia. There was John boy in the character of Casewell. Casewell was a good ole boy with high morals and like John Boy- he had a passion in his life. Only Casewell’s passion was woodworking and music rather than becoming an author. Also prominent members of the community were two elder sisters living together who seemed to like knowing what was happening in the little town and had a past of their own which was eventually revealed.

Perla was also a main character in this story. She was a woman with a past who constantly was being judged by those around her. And she was faced with the decision of whether to become bitter or better. She also needed to recognize her own self-worth in God’s eyes. When she meets Casewell, it caused him to face his own sense of right and wrong. Will he “cast the first stone” at Perla or will he each past his own sense of righteousness to see Perla’s heart?

Miracle in a Dry Season is a light read with a lot of interesting characters. There were a lot of lessons learned and moments of introspection. It was well written and very touching story.

This is an excellent story of grace and forgiveness. There's some mystery involved also. A story of small town ways in West Virginia which is a story of all small towns in America. Love and God can save the day.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A good clean story about life as it really was in ... 29 mars 2015
Par Dorothy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
A good clean story about life as it really was in that time and place. And about sin and forgiveness and the cruelty of people who classify some sins
as more worthy of condemnation than others. And about pride, and cruelty and how "a little child shall lead them." I thoroughly enjoyed the book.
As an avid reader on the high side of the eighties it reminded me of the "good old days" when the quality of a story was in how you could relate to a character or plot rather than to feel if it didn't shock you or keep you awake at night after reading it, then it somehow wasn't up to standard. I'm so glad that the author had this story on her heart and had the courage to write it for all to read and consider and profit by. Good Book !!!
