Wrapped In Rain
As a reader of Christian fiction, I feel as though I have discovered buried treasure in the writing of Charles Martin. Reminiscent of a Pat Conroy novel, Wrapped in Rain has all the elements of a Southern gothic tale not unlike The Prince of Tides. It is a story of a horrific childhood and an unspeakable, singular, horrifying event that mars the psyche of two brothers, sending one into the throes of mental illness and the other into a secluded life where fame and fortune do nothing to assuage the memory. Only the constant, steadfast, and godly love from one unlikely woman provides a beacon of hope, saving the brothers from spiraling down into the mire of death and destruction.
