Overview

Luke Davis disappeared from Ruth's life nearly four years ago, abandoning her and their unborn son. Alone and only sixteen, Ruth felt certain her renewed faith would carry her through whatever storms were certain to come her way. But brewing just below the surface of her adolescent smile, there was one storm Ruth would never see coming.
When Luke walked away, he callously left behind unworthiness he'd so cunningly instilled in Ruth. Now, as she enters her second year of college, a devalued mindset remains carefully hidden behind the majestic clouds of an approaching storm. Sabotaging a future with James, the one man who accepted and loved her, Ruth endures the pelting rains as the storm begins. But just when she begins to feel like the storm is ending, a sexual assault hurls her viciously into a deeper depression than she's ever known.
Feeling hopeless and abandoned by everyone around her, Ruth embraces the violent winds setting course a path of her own self-destruction. With the storm raging and the last strands of her faith slowly unraveling, Ruth must break free from her circumstances and find the grace that has saved her once before.

    I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

    Like in her book Snow, Kathryn captures the essence of life through the pages of Rain. Even her credits touched my heart and I felt such deep compassion for her experiences, as well as those who have and will face similar circumstances and decisions. I stand by what I said about the previous book, this is a great read for teenage girls. It will break your heart and cause you rethink judging peoples' dispositions in life. I can totally relate to the feeling of knowing people are judging you, because from the outside things look differently than what they are.

    I loved seeing how Ruth progressed through the story and how she was able to find God. In her darkest moments, she was able to develop courage and perseverance...even when she didn't know it. I also loved the ending, but I won't give that part away. ;) It made me smile.

    This is such a beautiful story, and I hope we see much more from Kathryn Hewitt in the future. I think the only thing I would complain about is the font for the book. For some reason by eyes felt strained while reading it. I can't tell if it's too small or too light, but something about it was difficult. Other than that, this is a great book!See full review @ The Indigo Quill . blogspot . com
