    Kentucky Rain Seventeen-year-old William Carpenter feels called

    Kentucky Rain

    Seventeen-year-old William Carpenter feels called to become a Union soldier in the battle of the Civil War. Stating that he is going to volunteer, his father resigns himself to join William. Told by the sergeant that they are to be ready to fight in two weeks one of the young men asks, "ready for what?" Realizing the gravity of the situation he is in, William is stunned by what he had gotten himself into. Having left Indianapolis, Indiana, moving toward Richmond, Kentucky William's stomach gives him troubles. Soon they arrive at a large tent and covered wagon where someone had raided a chicken coop. Once under a canopy of trees William feels peace and God's presence. He eats and once again suffers with his stomach issues. Arriving in Richmond, soon the fighting begins. William is injured by a gunshot wound to his left wrist on the second day of battle. One year after arriving home, William is still having flashbacks to those days gone by. In the meantime he has met a beautiful young woman in yellow. He offers her a ride to town and she gratefully accepts. Their time getting to know one another brings them to the realization that they are attracted to one another, and William is invited to join her family at church and for dinner at the home of Lucinda Moore.




    Kentucky Rain is the story of a young man who seeks to fulfill his call to serve his country. Unfortunately a gunshot wound to the wrist takes him back to his family farm in Indiana where he helps as much as he can with his injured wrist. Underneath this story is the rain, the flashes of lightning and thunder and the drops of rain as they reach the cornstalks in the fields. Told in flashbacks from William's time in the army to his activities back home, the author gives a detailed account of the battle that took place in Richmond, Kentucky. Well researched and told in accurate detail, Willard Carpenter has recreated that battle with realistic and true accounts of that time in our country's history. William finds himself attracted to a lovely young woman, and Mr. Carpenter's descriptive talents create a beautiful and romantic love story that captures the heart. The essence of William and Lucinda's feelings for one another flow with grace and wonder as they discover the depth of their feelings. I would love to see this short story developed into a full-length novel. I found myself wanting more from this deeply moving story.




    ADDENDUM: My review was based on content, originality, creativity and historical accuracy. Editing of this book had not been completed at the time of my reading.




    Disclaimer: I received am unedited PDF copy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest opinion. All opinions expressed are my own, and no monetary compensation was received for this review.
