Overview

Nicole Michelin avoids airplanes, motorcycles, and most of all, Japan, where her parents once were missionaries. Something happened in Japan...something that sent Nicole and her father back to America alone...something of which Nicole knows only bits and pieces. But she is content with life in little Mount Olive, North Carolina, with her quirky relatives, tank of lively fish, and plenty of homemade pineapple chutney. Through her online column for the Pretty Fishy Web site, she meets Harrison Michaels, who, much to her dismay, lives in Japan. She attempts to avoid him, but his e-mails tug at her heart. Then Harrison reveals that he knew her as a child in Japan. In fact, he knows more about her childhood than she does...

What People are Saying About This

Annabelle Robertson

"Alice J. Wisler has written an astonishing debut for a first-time author. The daughter of missionary parents, she grew up in Japan, so she is definitely following the writer's dictum to "write what you know." What is surprising, however, is that unlike most Christian novelists-who put the message far above the medium-Wisler writes with a tremendous amount of talent.

Her prose is good-beautiful, at times. Although it doesn't consist of heart-pounding action (it's not a thriller, after all), the story flows and engages the reader on many levels with numerous thought-provoking scenes and situations. Wisler's characters are also real-very real. Like all the other members of her family, Nicole is flawed. But she is lovable, and readers will enjoy her journey toward healing and love.... those who appreciate good writing, interesting characters and a love story set within a subtle Christian framework will definitely enjoy this book."--(Annabelle Robertson, Crosswalk.com)

Susan Miura

"After reading the first chapter, I wondered if Rain Song would have enough going on to hold my interest. I liked Nicole's endearing voice right off the bat, as well as the colorful characters of her aunt and grandmother Ducee as they sat around planning the family reunion.... Yet the book continued to draw me in. Like Nicole, I couldn't wait for Harrison's next email to see what he would reveal about her past. I loved the North Carolina imagery and Ducee's "Southern Truths." I even longed to try some pineapple chutney, which author Alice J. Wisler makes possible with the inclusion of the recipe at the end.
Rain Song, Wisler's debut novel, is a lovely story. It provides the kind of escape from the real world that every reader seeks and leaves one feeling good about God's limitless ability to provide strength, courage and answers to prayer."--(Susan Miura, FaithfulReader.com)

Kim Ford

"Alice Wisler tells this story of Rain Song in the slow, deliberate style of Southern tradition. Along the way, you will come to love Nicole's eclectic family and you will cheer her as she makes her very cautious discoveries. I look forward to more beautiful stories from this very talented writer!"--(Kim Ford, NovelReviews.blogspot.com)
