The story of Maizee both shocks and endears the reader to MOTHER OF RAIN, the beautifully, eerie debut novel. Like a handcrafted wedding quilt, Zacharias's prose weaves the tangle of hardscrabble lives into old fashion Appalachia storytelling. --Ann Hite, author of GHOST ON BLACK MOUNTAIN
Karen Spears Zacharias has carved a brilliant gem of a novel out of hard, uncompromising times and lives. Her remote mountain setting conceals misery, mystery, and madness--but also love, which comes in many forms. Zacharias examines these intertwined lives with great compassion and daring; she is a wonderful writer. --Lee Smith, author of MRS. DARCY AND THE BLUE-EYED STRANGER

This is a story that will capture your heart from the very first chapter. Each of the eccentric characters will tug at your heartstrings with their stories of struggles and hardships.
But, it is the main character, Maizee, who will worm her way into your heart and hang on! In the beginning of the book, Maizee is a young girl who witnesses an unspeakable tragedy. As she grows, she believes she is cursed. Her story is gut-wrenching.
The curse Maizee feels is a form of mental illness heightened by pregnancy. So, my kudos to the author for bringing to light the horrific mental anguish of those who suffer from it.
Mother of Rain is a superb read and a story that will stay with you. Well done, Karen!
