Overview

Step into a town where all the children are friends, but a drought has made the adults so grumpy they can't stop arguing! Only a miracle can heal this divided town.

Folks are so hopeless, they almost don't recognize that miracle when it appears as a woman who specializes in rainsongs. Yet slowly the townspeople realize that with faith they can sustain each other during the dry times, and then sing down the rain together.

Joy Cowley's lyrical text and Jan Spivey Gilchrist's impassioned paintings create a story of a community's struggle to believe, and to connect with each other.
