Book Review: Miracle in a Dry Season

Miracle in a Dry Season
By Sarah Loudin Thomas

"In a drought it's the darkest cloud that brings hope"

It's 1954 and Perla Long's arrival in the sleepy town of Wise, West Virginia was supposed to go unnoticed. She just wants a quiet safe place for her and her daughter, Sadie, where the mistakes of her past can stay hidden. But then drought comes to Wise and Perla is pulled into the turmoil of a town desperately in need of a miracle. Casewell Phillips has resigned himself to life as a bachelor... until he meets Perla. She's everything he's sought in a woman, but he can't get past the sense that she's hiding something. As the drought worsens, Perla's unique gift divides the town in two bringing both gratitude and condemnation, and placing the pair in the middle of a storm of anger and forgiveness, fear and faith. 

I can't help but love a historical romance based in American. Old fashioned values are ever present in Miracle in a Dry Season, as is a strong female character Perla Long, that you can't help but love and root for. I love the complicated romance with Casewell Phillips and the strain with the town. If you're looking for an afternoon escape Miracle in a Dry Season is exactly what you're going to need. I couldn't put this book down, every single character feels alive, and I feel like I'm right there beside them when I'm reading. If you like A Triple Knot or The Reluctant Detective you'll for sure love Miracle in a Dry Season as much as I do.
