Most of you know what I think of Charles Martin's books. I just love reading them; they make me want to be a better person. Thunder and Rain, Charles' latest, is no different. It is a story of two very hurt people finding each other and being able to heal with each other’s help.
I will admit that I have put off reading this book so I would have the time to enjoy and savor the story. I don’t want to read it too fast or I may miss something. It only took me a couple of days to read it, but that was a couple of very enjoyable days.
This is not a "good" Christian book in that there is some swearing, and even some sexual content, but it does have really good morals in it. Cowboy has them and sticks with them even when it is not easy. I would say, be careful about putting this in a church library, but read the book as it very well written and every little girl should grow up and marry a man like Cowboy.
One other note about this book, Charles does not use conclusions to stories that you think he should or would use. I can’t say there are huge storyline twists, but they don’t follow the clichés that other authors and stories can fall victim to. I really do like that in a book. I don’t want to know the ending before I get there, and I really like being surprised by that ending.
