Awesome Read

I was given a free book to read by Bethany House. My only requirement is to give an honest book review. I was given the book, "The Sound of Rain", by Sarah Loudin Thomas. I just love this author,
this book was totally awesome. I just couldn't put it down.
 It was dear to my heart, because I grew up in WV and also have taken family vacations to Myrtle Beach, SC.
 The story takes place in the 1950's. It centers around a young coal miner Judd Markley, who
was in a coal mining accident in which his younger brother was killed and he was badly injured.
Judd has heard that there is work in timber in SC. So he decides to go there for work.
 The other character Larkin Heyward, is a well to do girl from Myrtle Beach, SC. But has always had dreams of helping poor Appalachia children from Kentucky.
 Drawn together in the wake of Hurricane Hazel that changes Myrtle Beach forever. Will their different dreams draw them together or tear them apart?
 You will have to read the book to find out. I recommend this book highly!!! You won't be dissapointed!!

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.
