I think the one thing that really intrigued me about this book is the year it was set in. 1954. It is not an earth shattering year in America's history. The Korean war has ended, another little country south east Asia is just starting to make the news and color television is a brand new concept.
With an endorsement from Debbie Macomber, Miracle in a Dry Season by Sarah Loudin promises to be a wonderful read. It is not a book that is going to be a thriller, but one that gentle peeks into life in a sleepy little town.
Perla arrives in Wise, West Virginia with as little fan fare as possible. She wants to go unnoticed and settle into a quiet life for herself and her daughter Sadie. Of course that isn't going to happen in a small community and the gossip is started to spread on Sunday Morning.
Casewell was hoping to be married with a couple of kids by now, but guesses bachelorhood will be his lot in life. Until he meets Perla, she is everything he has looked for in a woman, but what is she hiding from him?
