Wrapped in Rain: A Novel
Date: May 2020
Duration: 11 hours 17 minutes
An internationally famous photographer, Tucker Mason has traveled the world, capturing things other people don’t see. But what Tucker can’t see is how to let go of his traumatic childhood and forgive his father.
On a sprawling Southern estate, Tucker and his younger brother, Mutt, were raised by their housekeeper, Miss Ella Rain, who loved the motherless boys like her own. Hiring her to take care of Waverly Hall and the boys was the only good thing their abusive and alcoholic father ever did.
When his brother escapes from a mental hospital and an old girlfriend appears with her son and a black eye, Tucker is forced to return home and face the agony of his tragic past.
Though Miss Ella has been gone for many years, Tucker can still hear her voice—and her prayers. 'Life is a battle, but you can’t fight it with your fists. You got to fight it with your heart.' But finding peace and starting anew will take a measure of grace that Tucker scarcely believes in.
Wrapped in Rain follows Tucker’s journey from brokenness to healing through the everlasting power of love.
Praise for Wrapped in Rain:
'Charles Martin is changing the face of inspirational fiction one book at a time. Wrapped in Rain is a sentimental tale that is not to be missed.' —Michael Morris, author of A Place Called Wiregrass and Live Like You Were Dying
'This is the story of a real person’s real struggle with the uncertainties of faith, unadorned with miracles of the deus ex machina sort but full of the sort of miracles that attend everyday life if you bother to notice. Charles Martin notices, and for that I commend him. He’s unafraid of tackling the crucial questions—life, death, love, sacrifice.' —Duncan Murrell, editor and writer
