The Sound of Rain By Sarah Loudin Thomas from Bethany House Publishing. Judd Markley knows he can never set foot underground again. The mine collapse that nearly killed him and claimed his brother’s life means to leave in West Virginia forever. Although that hard Appalachian world is all he knows, he puts it behind him and heads for the open sky of the thriving town of 1954 Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Larkin Hayward’s life in the beach town is uncomplicated, mostly volunteer work and dancing at the Pavilion. But she dreams of one day to her more and being more, maybe move into the hills and haulers of Kentucky to help the poor children of the Appalachia. But she never met someone who’s lived there until she encounters Judd, the newest employee at her father’s timber company. Drawn together in the wake of a hurricane that changes Myrtle Beach forever, Judd’s and Larkin’s dreams pull them in divergent directions. It will take a significant sacrifice to keep them together or maybe, it will take a miracle.
