Not many people love a good love story as much as I do. The one thing I love better than a good love story is a good Christian love story. Raining Fools by Jackie Castle intertwines two Christian love stories in one sweet tale.
Raining Fools: The Story
Stephen Gaines and Bekka Winters reunite after years of separation. They had been high school sweethearts until Bekka’s protective brother, Ethan, put a halt to their relationship. Ethan and Stephen had been music partners until a twist in their relationship sent them down separate paths. Now Ethan and his love, Haley, are working hard to build a future together around a warm and cozy small town bed and breakfast business. In addition to helping Haley build her bed and breakfast business, Ethan is working on opening a recording studio, but he needs Bekka’s and Stephen’s help to get started.
Bekka and Stephen must work together to create the video needed to help Ethan open his studio. Bekka swears she will never let Stephen back into her life. Is she capable of keeeping Stephen locked out of her heart?
Stephen comes into town with problems of his own. His life is complicated by a few real world realities to which many readers are bound to relate. Can he become the man Bekka deserves? Can he break the barriers she has set in place to protect her heart?
While Stephen and Bekka work together on the video, they notice Ethan’s peculiar habits that reveal a big secret. What are Ethan and Haley hiding?
What I Like About the Book
I like that most of the characters in Raining Fools seek God’s plan and direction for their lives. Young readers will surely be impressed by the example of the young people in this book.
I like that Mrs. Castle weaves real world problems and spiritual battles in her story.
I like that the reader will witness a steadfast faith in some characters and changed lives in others.
I love that the reader will realize that a person’s past holds no stronghold over his or her future when he or she allows the Lord to rule the heart.
