The Sound of Rain, Book Review

The Sound of Rain by Sarah Loudin Thomas

Judd Markley is a hardworking coal miner who rarely thinks much past tomorrow until he loses his brother--and nearly his own life--in a mine cave-in. Vowing never to enter the darkness of a mine again, he leaves all he knows in West Virginia to escape to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. It's 1954, the seaside community is thriving, and Judd soon hires on with a timber company. 

Larkin Heyward's life in Myrtle Beach is uncomplicated, mostly doing volunteer work and dancing at the Pavilion. But she dreams of one day doing more--maybe moving to the hollers of Kentucky to help the poor children of Appalachia. But she's never even met someone who's lived there--until she encounters Judd, the newest employee at her father's timber company. 

Drawn together in the wake of a devastating hurricane, Judd and Larkin each seek answers to what tomorrow will bring. As opposition rises against following their divergent dreams, they realize that it may take a miracle for them to be together.


My Thoughts: I received The Sound of Rain from the publisher in exchange for reviewing it, but of course all opinions are my own. Judd Markley and Larkin Hayward lead such different lives that you can't really see them together at the beginning. I love how the story evolves around them. This is one of those books you'll want to read, especially as a relaxing evening or weekend piece.
