Karen Spears Zacharias' tale of Maizee Hurd captures life in rural Appalachia while also addressing the demons of mental illness. Told through various narrators, Zacharias gets to the heart and soul of each character while maintaining the flow and integrity of her first novel. Even after finishing the novel, you are left thinking about the book, its characters, and reflecting on how much the care of those with mental illness hasn't changed today. "Mother of Rain" is a gem of a novel and I look forward to more tales from Zacharias, who has a gift with story telling.
