As a city neighborhood looks for ways to survive a long, hot, summer drought, a single mother and her young son await the birth of a new baby. The heat wave has tempers rising like mercury in a thermometer. Can't cool down! Finally, it rains - a soft, silver rain that brings everyone outside. That night the baby arrives, like the rain, a blessing. Welcome to the world, Silver Rain Brown! The potential for joy and people's ability to survive even difficult circumstances inspired this story of family and community, hope and rebirth.
