    Masterful Writing - A Must Read!

    This series is the first I've read of Gayle Roper's, but it won't be the last! This is not your 'run-of-the-mill' story-line. Realistic, current event,life-changing, thought-provoking writing woven with master craftsmanship. I like a story that stays with me, helps me to grow, ends with hope, but leaves a longing for more.

    Romance and suspense with insight

    I usually get tired around nine o¿clock and am in bed by ten. However, when I read Spring Rain, I stayed up until 1:15 AM¿until I finished reading it. I couldn¿t put it down! Gayle does a masterful job of combining a sensitive subject with a powerful story. While she addresses AIDS, homosexuality and Christianity, at no time does Spring Rain feel preachy. Instead it is a beautiful love story told with mystery and drama. If you like a good read, if you like a sweet romance, and if you like a touch of suspense Spring Rain is the book for you!

    powerful realistic look at life

    A decade ago, Leigh Spenser¿s true love Clay Wharton left Seaside New Jersey and her. She gave birth to his son, but he never returned for her so she raised Billy by herself with some help from Clay¿s twin brother Ted. <P>However, Ted is dying from AIDS and Clay has returned to Seaside to be with him in his sibling¿s final moments even if he loathes his twin¿s gay lifestyle. However, Clay also has to contend with the love he left behind and their son, who hates him for abandoning them. Leigh must deal with knowing that in spite of everything that has passed, she still loves Clay, who wants to spend the rest of his life making it up to his family. <P> SPRING RAIN is a powerful realistic look at life, especially redemption. The story line tugs at the reader as Clay realizes that regardless of Ted¿s sexual preference, he is still his beloved twin and he will do anything to comfort him. Clay also understands that time is on his side when it comes to obtaining forgiveness from Leigh and Billy and, like with Ted, he will do anything to become a fixture in their lives. Gayle Roper writes a strong tale that centers on plenty of room for everybody in God¿s tent. <P>Harriet Klausner
