Emotional Novel On Every Level!
The Sweetest Rain by Myra Johnson is a clean novel of love and families with and without family values.
The country had survived the First World War, the stock market crash of 1929, and now Arkansas’s tenant farmers were faced with the worst drought in its history. Two families are featured and inter-meshed in this book; one is rich and entitled, the other poor, desperate, and giving.
The author created a story of love, lies, expectations, and secrets as the Senior Heath rules from his mansion. We watch as unrestricted power, prejudice, and inequity in the hands of the Heath patriarch ruins not only his family but others.
His son Michael will be the saving grace of the family with his gentle caring soul and artistic nature; he battles PTSD, depression, the physical effect of mustard gas, and a father that wants him to be something he is not.
