Miracle in a Dry Season

I am a book reviewer for "Bethany House". I am given a book to read, and my only
requirement is to give an honest review.

My book this month was "Miracle in a Dry Season", by Sara Loudin Thomas.
It had to be one of the best books that I have ever read in a long time.
It is one of those books that you read and you feel like you are right there with the

I especially loved the book since I grew up in WV.
 The story takes place in 1954 in a small town in Wise, WV. Perla Long and her daughter Sadie
move to Wise so that they can be hidden from Perla's past.

Casewell Phillips is satisfied being a bachelor until he meets Perla. but can he get past
Perla's past.

The town experiences a severe drought. Perla has unique gifts. But her gifts divide the town.
Is there any hope for Perla and Casewell in a town where so many people reject her?
This is a story of faith, forgiveness and fear. I recommend this book highly!!!

About Me

My photo
I have been married to my sweetheart Ronnie for 30 years.We live in the beautiful shenandoah valley of Va. We have 2 beautiful children and 3 beautiful grandchildren. I am a christian, and am blessed with two wonderful jobs. I am a hairdresser and also a nurse, I am proud of my nursing degree which I got at age 47. I give the Lord much praise for this. I also enjoy primitive crafts, antiquing, cooking, reading and gardening. My husband and I bought an old farmhouse in WV five years ago and it was ancient, floor rotted out in the kitchen, no bathroom, bats flying around, mice. Scary, well now five years later we have most of it completed, working now on a roof for the wrap around porch.We sand blasted some of the walls so they would be original, we also took all the old weatherboarding off of the outside of the house, planed it and put it back on some of the inside walls. We also have added a wrap around porch. Since we have remodled the old farmhouse, that is how I came up with my blog name.
