The Sound of Rain is a story of discovering, embracing and setting priorities, while looking to God for guidance in the process. It is also a story of relationships, and understanding others, accepting them for who they are and where they are in their life journey, taking their hand, and walking alongside them, moving together to a closer relationship with one another and with God.
I recommend The Sound of Rain to readers who love a sweet romance along with a bit of drama, but with a full share of deeper meaning, a lesson worth pondering. I thank NetGalley and the Baker Publishing Group for providing me with a copy of The Sound of Rain in exchange for this honest review. I received no monetary compensation.
This book was delightful! I loved the setting; I was so drawn into the time period (it's set in 1954) and the locations. I've never been to West Virginia, South Carolina, or Kentucky, but Sarah Loudin Thomas made all of those places real for me with her descriptions. Beyond that, though, the characters just pulled me in. From the get go, I couldn't help but feel for Judd, who's a lost without his brother and has to figure out what the future has in store for him. I also liked seeing Larkin find her own strength. Secondary characters (like Granny Jane!) stole my heart as well. There were so many great themes, such as figuring out what actually matters in life, finding the path God wants for you, and living again after a loss, that most readers will be able to relate to.
I received a complimentary copy of the book from Bethany House via NetGalley. All opinions are my own.

Judd Markley moves to South Carolina consumed by grief and remorse. He's determined to live out his baby brother dream not only as a way of preserving his brother's memory but as a self-punishment as well. When new dreams and friends come along, how long can Judd hold on to undeserved penitence so he can learn to smile again?
Larkin Heyward has grown up pampered, with doting parents and a loving family. But her brother's decisions upon graduating have shattered her family in two, secluding him from being part of her life ever again. When Larkin starts to find aspiration in a path similar to the one taken by her brother, will she bare breaking her father's heart again?
A hurricane brings these two characters together in ways neither one imagined. And as much as Larkin may come out as naive, spoiled and downright irritating, Judd is quickly finding out she also represents, with all her Southern sass, the purest sunshine capable of bringing hope to his darkness.
