Dry As Rain by Gina Holmes
I feel that most married couples can relate to Dry as Rain. Holmes does an excellent job in describing what can happen in a marriage when the couple finds themselves drifting apart. Jealousy and coldness can easily destroy trust, which in turn can make a deed that was once unthinkable, doable. Holmes perfectly describes the feelings both partners feel after a betrayal takes place, and just how hard it is to bridge that gap...if ever.
Dry As Rain illustrates what can happen when money becomes more important than anything else in life. Eric works 6 days a week in order to climb the corporate ladder. His goal is to make more money and win the next promotion. I think that many marriages suffer when work becomes the number one priority. The other spouse is forgotten, along with his or her hopes and dreams.
Holmes did a great job in incorporating Christianity into Dry As Rain. In the midst of his own marital infidelity, Eric discovers that God can and will forgive all sins. Without being 'preachy,' Dry As Rain is a Christian romance novel that reminds readers of certain biblical truths.
Gina Holmes wrote a novel that pulls at the heart strings. Dry As Rain is a quick read that shows what happens when true love persists. I recommend this book to any romance lover.
