This book was nothing at all what I was expecting. The cover, while unique and inviting, does not begin to hint about the depth of this story. I was drawn immediately into the mystery of the story as Nicole takes us along to figure out her past. The finding of her website by Harrison just makes the story even more amazing. Some may see situations like this as coincidence but it's more about a plan that God always had in mind. I loved reading about the Japanese culture throughout the book. I felt like I could see the two different worlds that Nicole was a part of, the one she knew vs the one she couldn't remember. Her family is unique as a whole, they definitely make me want to try their famous pineapple chutney (thank goodness there's a recipe included in the back of the book). My only minor gripe is that I felt a little annoyed with the way Monet acted sometimes, but then I felt immediately bad and I felt sympathetic towards her mother. The style of writing just pulls the reader in and connects you with the characters. This was a wonderful debut by Alice Wisler and it shows how she has made her mark in the fiction world. I am looking forward to reading any future book by her.

While this book was well written, it seemed that it wasn't really thought out. The ending could have held so much more, but it seemed that the author just got sick of writing and stopped the story. It was fun and good otherwise, it was just a huge disappointment the way it ended.

This story was really cute. The characters are interesting and have their own unique quirks. There are several subplots going on in the story but all of them are easy to follow. The book is considered to be Christian fiction and I think the author did a good job of incorporating scripture into the story line but not in an overly preachy way. The ending leaves room for a sequel and it would be nice to see if the main character ends up finding her true love with Harrison. I liked that the characters were supportive of one another and the family was close-knit. The setting is Mt. Olive, the pickle capital of the world. That cracked me up. There are some very well written lines that caused me to jot them down in my journal....things like that are nice elements of surprise.

Loved the book. Ending was abrupt. There was so much more detail that i was hoping for.

I feel like the ending was too rushed. I was hoping for a little bit more. I spent a while reading the story and, when I got to the ending, I felt like it was just unfinished. If the ending was more descriptive, I would have without a doubt give this book a 5 star rating.

Rain Song is a wonderful mixture of the South and Japan. The details from both sides of the globe are fantastic. Alice clearly knows the South and Japan. She has a fresh and unique voice that keeps the pages turning. Nicole is fearful, but she learns, with the help of her grandmother Ducee, how to deal with the uncertainties she has held so long. I found myself in these pages. Truly, a wonderful read and I recommend to book clubs and to everyone wanting to live the adventure! Don't miss it!

Real characters I would love to meet one day. Alice Wisler has captured my heart with this lovely story set in the South. Her writing is dynamic. I enjoyed this book and hated to see it end. More, please!

Nicole Michelin has had a lot of heartache. She was born in Japan. Her parents were medical missionaries. At the age of two, she lost her mother in a fire and she and her father moved back to the United States. Like many children, Nicole has fears related to things she doesn¿t fully understand. Her father refuses to talk about the past so she is left without answers and too afraid to seek them out. Then she meets Harrison Michaels through a website. He knew her as a child in Japan . He knows there are many in Japan that can answer some of those questions. This means Nicole will have to takes some steps of faith and courage. This is accomplished through the love, encouragement, and wisdom of her grandmother. There are other side stories that add to the warmth and depth of this story. This was a wonderful book. One that lets the reader know that we have to let go of fears and lean on our faith. This is an author to watch out for.

I loved the story and all the characters. I get the title of the book even if no one else does.

Enjoyed the book but it was somewhat slow to get started and was written in present tense, which was distracting. I wanted to give it 4 stars but couldn't because the ending just leaves you hanging with no closure. Not bad for a first book though.

Very enjoyable! Loved the quirky characters! Not entirely sure what "Rain Song" has to do with anything.... Strange title for the book. Maybe I missed something?

Crazy good! Is it alright if I ask for a cat to be in your great story? I'm just wondering.

This was a good book but it was a very slow read for me.

I really loved the characters and the story. They came to life and had me laughing and crying with them. It was definitely not the story I thought it was going to be but I highly recommend it. My only complaint? It was too short!! =)

This was a very well written story and the characters were enjoyable. There was a lot of family tradition and love and also hope for the future. I thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone who likes a touching story without having to resort to sex or negative human behavior.

This was a very good story, but as so many said it ended abruptly. I was left with so many unanswered questions at the end. It definitely needs a sequel. What happened in the lives of all the characters? Nichole got many answers to her past, but what about the future? I was just VERY disappointed at the end.

I found this book hard to get into. I read half of it and still could not figure out what it was about or get into it. I do not recommend it. Don't waste your money.
