Lauraine Snelling in her new book, “Heaven Sent Rain book coverHeaven Sent Rain” published by FaithWords brings us into the lives of Dinah Taylor, Jonah and Garret Miller.

From the back cover:   Heaven Sent Rain

Scientist and pharmaceutical CEO Dinah Taylor takes comfort in her orderly life, both professionally and within the walls of her luxury apartment. But the morning she buys breakfast for seven-year-old Jonah Morgan and his dog, “Mutt,” her life changes in ways she could not have predicted. Breakfasts with Jonah are soon part of Dinah’s daily routine, and she finds herself becoming the mysterious boy’s main source of refuge. With no children of her own and harrowing memories of childhood, Dinah doubts her ability to help. However, to Jonah, Dinah is like a handpicked guardian angel he’ll come to need more desperately than even he anticipates.

When a late night call from Jonah sends Dinah rushing his badly injured dog to a clinic, the two meet veterinarian Garret Miller. Though Jonah takes to Garret right away, for some reason neither understands, Dinah and Garret just don’t mesh. But for Jonah’s sake, their lives continue to collide. Is any relationship possible between these divergent strangers?

What is the most important thing in all the universe? Why Human relationships of course. And they become even more important when the relationships mirror those of a family as Dinah, Jonah and Garret’s do in “Heaven Sent Rain”. These are some of the best characters to have ever graced a printed page. Ms. Snelling has outdone herself both with these characters and with the plot. Like it or not we need other humans to inter-react with and when we do not have this in our lives we are sadly missing out on what we were created for. Have no fear God is not going to let this go on for long. Each character has a special need that only one of the others can meet. And they have to work out their past issues in order to deal with the present and embrace the future. On top of all of this there is the romance.  These are wonderful characters that live and breathe on the pages and you care deeply for them.  This book does not disappoint at all.  I enjoyed it and I am sure you will also.
