Miracle in a Dry Season

Miracle in a Dry Season by Sarah Loudin Thomas 

It’s 1954 and Perla Long’s arrival in the small 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 way with food brings both gratitude and condemnation, placing the pair in the middle of a maelstrom of anger and forgiveness, fear and faith.


Sarah Loudin Thomas brings the history and people of Appalachia to life in her debut novel!  Set in 1954, Miracle in a Dry Season is a heartfelt tale of small town life.  I found the unique storyline to be unexpected and enchanting, with a colorful cast of characters.  I enjoyed visiting Wise, West Virginia, and look forward to reading the next book in the Appalachian Blessings series! 

I received a complimentary copy of this book through The Book Club Network.  All thoughts expressed are my own.
