If you love historical romance love stories, you'll love Sandra Brown's Rainwater. When a dying man arrived and boarded a boardinghouse for rent in 1930s Texas, a lot of racial prejudice was going on, even when it was up against the rich and the poor. This happened when David Rainwater met Ella Barron, a single mother of a ten-year-old challenged son named Solly. She was a bit resistant on opening a room for David and accepted his application to let him inside. At first glance, she was taken on a whirlwind journey as her world began to change like the wind everywhere she went, even for her son. That's when two people like David and Ella endlessly fall in love and say goodbye. It's all about sacrifices and second chances, to live and love again, when love has no limits. This book has a shocking twist for a tearjerker at the end. I don't want to give it away. People will do anything for love. This one needs a Kleenex.
This was a wonderful and heart-breaking historical romance. I cared for Ella and her son and for David, too. This really showed what it was like back then, during the Great Depression and the racial divide in the town. To have it set during the 1930s in Texas was the perfect place for location and setting. I really loved how their relationship unfolded and developed in a slow gradual pace with the magic between them. This made me sigh and take a couple of deep big breaths and cry a few times. Great drama, excellent romance with tons of action and suspense.
