The book starts off telling the story of a mental patient Mutt (the younger brother) until he escapes, then Tucker Rain (the older brother) takes over the story. The transition between storytellers was seamless though. It's a story about two boys who grew up with an abusive father and relied on Miss Ella for protection. Miss Ella was a deeply religious black woman who was a combination housekeeper/nanny. Although she wasn't allowed to take the boys to church, she manages to instill in them the love of God.

It's a question as to which character is the main character because they each play such an important role. The story wouldn't be complete without any of them. The author does and excellent job of weaving this story and bringing it to it's comforting conclusion. This book reads more like a biography than a fictional book. Although it started off slow, I really enjoyed the book and would recommend it to friends.

'Wrapped in Rain' is quite a difficult story for me to read. It is highly emotional and made me think that no matter how one tries to escape the past, they can never do that. One can never be free of their past, unless they're brave enough to face it.

One thing I learned from this book is about unwavering faith will save one's soul. Prayers too.

Overall, it's not a bad book to read. I rate this book 3 out of 5 stars. I received an ARC of this book from Thomas Nelson Publisher and I was not required to write a positive review for this book.
