Leigh Cunningham has crafted an engrossing, well-written and compelling book. Although it is hard to "encapsulate" because there are many themes and story lines, it is a wonderful book that I highly recommend. -- Janet J for Readers FavoriteWinner Literary Fiction category at the 2011 National Indie Excellence Awards, and silver medalist at the 2011 Independent Publisher Book Awards (IPPY) in the Regional Fiction: Australia/New Zealand category.
From the Author
RAIN is a very dark, sad, tragic story, and is based in part on true events. Some readers might find the sadness overwhelming, but in reality some people and families suffer more than their fair share of set-backs and misfortune.
RAIN is also 'literary' fiction, which tends to focus on the subjects of the narrative rather than the plot ie. the focus is on the "inner story" of the characters, their motivations, emotions and introspection. The style of writing in literary fiction tends to be lyrical and layered; the tone is serious, and as mentioned, it is usually darker than para-literary fiction. It is a style of writing that is not for everyone.
