Book Review: Wrapped in Rain by Charles Martin

13 Nov

Wrapped in Rain, Charles Martin, Alabama, Jacksonville florida, clopton, resolving anger, forgiving, forgivenessI read this as an ebook on my phone. It’s very different reading a book this way, but it wasn’t bad. This was my first ebook, and it was a lot better than I was expecting. Of course, I did miss the feel of the book, turning pages, and knowing how far I’ve gotten in the book without having to tap a few buttons.

As for the book itself, it was a good look at how anger and hatred can build in someone over a lifetime and how God can help someone let go and live a healthy life. There were some odd scenes in the book that really weren’t needed – like the gas station attendant, the weird customer scene at Clark’s, and a few others I won’t mention. But, apart from those scenes, I really liked the rest of the book. I enjoyed how we are taken back in time to really understand why Tucker and Mutt are the way they are and why they do certain things.

I loved the character of Miss Ella. She did seem to be a little too perfect, but since she is deceased, it might be appropriate. Sometimes when we have lost someone, we make them into these perfect people that no one else will ever live up to. Miss Ella’s voice in Tucker’s head seemed to be his own conscience, and what lived in his conscience is everything that she taught him. Makes me want to be more like her.

This is a good book. It is full of inner turmoil and is driven by relationships. Just the kind I love! Thank you to the publisher for sending me this book to review.

    You read this on your phone? Wow! I wish I had your eyes! What a very nice review site!

    As an author, I was wondering if you’d be interested in reviewing SCARS: An End-Times Novel for your blog?

    It is currently a bestseller in Christian Fiction. Here’s a short blurb;

    Revelation comes to life in this mesmerizing apocalyptic thriller of the end- times. A heart-wrenching story of a young girl, SCARS chronicles the beginning of the End of the World, as earth-shattering events lead up to the Apocalypse as foretold in the Bible.

    Thanks and God bless!

      Sure, I,d love to. I do have four books to review currently, so it might be a while before I can get to SCARS. Do you have it in eBook form, or will you be mailing me a hardcopy?
