Wrapped in Rain by Charles Martin
Tucker Mason (Rain) has had a painful and difficult childhood to overcome. His one salvation was Miss Ella Rain, nanny and housekeeper. Tucker finds a childhood friend and gets word that his brother has escaped from the mental hospital where he lives. As Tucker deals with both of these things, he has to come to terms with the ghosts of his past and learn how to handle his pain and move on.
Tender, sweet, hauntingly painful, yet full of hope. This story was by turns sad and grief-filled and hopeful and encouraging. The characters were fascinating and were very "real." The story line of a disturbed childhood was difficult but believable. Tucker's story is rich and compelling. I so thoroughly enjoyed this read that I cannot wait to find other novels by Charles Martin.
