Overview

Sheltering Rain by Jojo Moyes

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Me Before You, the basis for the major motion picture, comes the touching, unforgettable story of three generations of Irish women faced with the fundamental truths of love, duty, and the unbreakable bond that unites mothers and daughters.

Estranged from her mother since she ran away from her rural Irish home as a young woman, Kate swore a future oath that she’d always be a friend to her daughter, Sabine. But history has a way of repeating itself, and Kate now faces an ever-widening chasm between herself and her daughter. With Sabine about to make her own journey to Ireland to see the grandmother Kate abandoned, Kate is left wondering how they ever made it here, and what she can do to close the gap between them. 

For Joy, seeing her granddaughter is a dream come true. After the painful separation from Kate, she’s looking forward to having time with Sabine. Yet almost as soon as the young woman arrives, the lack of common ground between them deflates her enthusiasm. And when Sabine’s impetuous, inquisitive nature forces Joy to face long-buried secrets from her past, she realizes that perhaps it’s time to finally heal old wounds.

“This perceptive…novel does the mother-and-daughter thing in page-turning style.”--Elle

I picked this book up at a bargain sale not sure if I'd enjoy it, but I loved it. A story of mothers, daughters and grandaughters that everyone can connect to. I will be recommending this book to friends.

This is a lovely story, well written and engaging from the start. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys good contemporary fiction.

This book is so well thought out and the characters have substance. I would recommend Sheltering Rain and The Girls he Left Behind to any reader who wants something out of the ordinary.

IT IS AN INTERESTING BOOK, VERY DESCRIPTIVE. MAKES ONE FEEL LIKE THEY ARE LIVING IN IRELAND. I THINK THIS BOOK COULD ME READ BY ALL AGES OF WOMEN. I WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK FOR A BOOK CLUB DISCUSSION. I HAVE NEVER BOUGHT A BOOK I HAVNE'T ENJOYED FROM BARNES AND NOBLE.

I enjoyed the story line even though the characters were somewhart predictable. However, whoever the editor was needs to be fired. Some of the gaffs were difficult to ignore.

Not as good as other books by Moyes. One creepy scene kind of ruined it for me.

Jojo Moyes has a wonderfull talent drawing you into the lives of the characters. Sheltering Rain is the second book I've read of hers and have loved both; enough that I have bought two more and have already finished one. I highly recommend this book for women, teens, and especially grandmothers, which I am. If you enjoy British humor and have been around any teenage girl you will definitely enjoy this book.

Me Before You was one of my all time favorite books. I enjoy JoJo Moyes sense of humor so I thought I'd enjoy Sheltering Rain. I'm 100 pages into it and sure hope it gets a lot better real soon. I came to this site to read reviews but all I seem to see here are senseless gabberings. Is this a review site or a site for silly conversations? Maybe it's British thing I just don't follow.
