Summary

From the New York Times best-selling author of The Mountain Between Us comes a new, spellbinding story of buried secrets, lost love, and the promise of second chances.

Allie is still recovering from the loss of her family's beloved waterfront restaurant on Florida's Gulf Coast when she loses her second husband to a terrifying highway accident. Devastated and losing hope, she shudders to contemplate the future - until a cherished person from her past returns.

Joseph has been adrift for many years, wounded in both body and spirit and unable to come to terms with the trauma of his Vietnam War experiences. Just as he resolves to abandon his search for peace and live alone at a remote cabin in the Carolina mountains, he discovers a mother and her two small children lost in the forest. A man of character and strength, he instinctively steps in to help them get back to their home in Florida. There he will return to his own hometown - and witness the accident that launches a bittersweet reunion with his childhood sweetheart, Allie.

When Joseph offers to help Allie rebuild her restaurant, it seems the flame may reignite - until a 45-year-old secret from the past begins to emerge, threatening to destroy all hope for their second chance at love.

In Send Down the Rain, Charles Martin proves himself to be a storyteller of great wisdom and compassion who bears witness to the dreams we cherish, the struggles we face, and the courage we must summon when life seems to threaten what we hold most dear.

Charles Martin breathes life into every story

I have yet to find an author who captivated my attention and brings a story to life like Charles Martin. This one was no exception. While he sometimes includes a little too much detail for me about the area or other information of major interest in the story, it isn’t the case in this book. Each character comes to life in depth and the twists and turns in the main character’s life draw you in. There is no need and no inclusion of profanity even though the main character was deep within the horrifying events of war. This book will grip your heart and hopefully make you see past the surface of people and what you may think their life is about.

Send Down The Rain

Charles Martin has written another great, thought provoking story that stirs the soul. I would highly recommend all of his books.

Charles Martin never disappoints.

Send down the rain is Charles Martin's latest book and I could not put it down! There are several stories wrapped together that intertwine into a bigger story. Love, betrayal, and forgiveness are the main themes throughout. Just when you think you have it figured out, there is a new twist.
JoJo Brooks is a likeable protagonist who unravels a story 45 years in the making. Definitely worth the read.

Captured from the first chapter...

Searching for words that will do justice to this book. Captivating from the beginning its crooks and turns kept me waiting expectantly for what would happen next. Charles Martin’s skill and gift as a writer are well displayed. Already anxiously awaiting his next book. Thank you, Mr. Martin!
