In a Drought, It's the Darkest Cloud
That Brings Hope

It's 1954 and Perla Long's arrival in the sleepy town of Wise, West Virginia, was supposed to go unnoticed. She just wants a quiet, safe place for her and her daughter, Sadie, where the mistakes of her past can stay hidden. But then drought comes to Wise, and Perla is pulled into the turmoil of a town desperately in need of a miracle.

Casewell Phillips has resigned himself to life as a bachelor...until he meets Perla. She's everything he's sought in a woman, but he can't get past the sense that she's hiding something. As the drought worsens, Perla's unique gift divides the town in two, bringing both gratitude and condemnation, and placing the pair in the middle of a storm of anger and forgiveness, fear and faith.


This debut novel is splendid. The story is genuine and heartfelt, with just a touch of the Divine. A story of forgiveness and reckoning, and realizing love does cover a multitude of sins. Thomas will be a go-to author after you read Miracle in a Dry Season .
--Rachel Hauck, bestselling author of The Wedding Dress and Once Upon a Prince

Charming, whimsical, and intelligently written, Miracle in a Dry Season is a beautiful debut novel

This is a really pleasant book to read. My problem with fiction is that it always comes down to a lack of communication, but that seems to be a side issue as the characters all deal with a drought and the effects that come along with it. I recommend this book and I'm at the library today looking for more by this author.
