REVIEW: Miracle in a Dry Season by Sarah Loudin Thomas


I found this story to be fresh and believable within its time period and geographic setting.  Casewell Phillips is ready for some change and Perla Long’s arrival to town provides just that.  Add a summer drought to Perla’s intrigue as an unwed mother.  It’s a drought and suffering of the the worse degree and it has been cast on the people of Wise, WV for their sins, so says the misguided pastor of the story.  Casewell, an upstanding bachelor, struggles with his definition of levels of sin.  It’s a story about casting stones and a story about examining one’s own missteps.  It’s also a story of awakening and renewal which is well-written and emotive.

Thanks to Bethany House for providing me a copy for a review in my own words.
