Send Down the Rain

Allie's second husband is killed tragically when his 18-wheeler crashes into the rocks near their home in Cape San Blas--the tanker was full of fuel and the explosion could be seen on overhead satellites. She'd already lost the beloved waterfront restaurant her parents started and now losing her husband, no matter how unfulfilling their marriage was, might just push her over the edge.Joseph's time in Vietnam left him with scars that never seemed to heal. No matter how he's tried to love or what he's tried to do since then, he can't pull himself out of the wreckage of his former life. His trust and security shaken, he isolates himself in a cabin. But every morning, he faithfully pours two cups of coffee, drinking his while he sits with the second, and then pouring out the full cup.It's no small coincidence that Joseph found a mother and her two young children lost in the woods near his cabin. Or that when he helps them return to family in Florida, he's near enough to see that explosion. Near enough to know it's close to home. Near enough to know that his childhood sweetheart needs him.The years have built so much distance between them, but it's the secrets that may be their final undoing. Send Down the Rain reminds us of the beauty of truth . . . and the power of love to wash away the past....

    A book hangover is said to be the inability to start a new book because you are still emotionally attached to the previous one.

    Once again, Charles Martin has given me a hangover.

    Charles Martin is, for me, that author whose book I will buy without question. No synopsis needed. No reviews read. As an author, he has proven himself to me without a shadow of a doubt that his stories will amaze me.

    Send Down the Rain is no different. A Vietnam vet with a questionable past, an illegal immigrant doing

    Tremendous

    Best book yet, and that’s saying a lot! Quite a story told by a master story teller. Grace and plain English. Couldn’t put it down. What’s next, Mr. Martin?

  • Joan

    Martin has crafted a powerful novel. It is not overtly “Christian” in that I would not describe the major characters as Christians. Yet the novel had great impact on me. The entire novel, I think, is an allegory of a major Christian concept, giving your own life for that of another.

    Martin's writing style is compelling. I was captivated by Joseph's story. Developing Joseph's character as the plot progressed was masterful. The plot itself weaves through contemporary experiences based on events fro

    Martin has become one of my favorite authors because I know every time I pick up one of his novels, I will find a story that reaches beyond the pages of the book into the deeper reflections of life. Martin doesn't just give the reader a good story; he takes them on a journey.

    Send Down the Rain shares the story of Joseph Brooks. A hero to everyone except himself, Joseph has struggled with the abandonment of his father as a child, soul-deep trauma experienced in Vietnam, the strains of his brothe

    Wow, what a tale! Masterful storytelling, with realistic characters, drama, and action made this a powerful read. A story that leaves a lasting impression.

    Told in part with flash backs through the main character's point of view, the author brings the reader along for an amazing series of events in Joseph 'Jo-Jo' Brooks' life. There are some gritty moments, including war scenes, and violence, key to understanding what has shaped his life and made him who he has become today. His acts of generosi
