Wrapped in Rain : A Novel of Coming Home, Charles Martin
The only good thing Alabama business mogul Rex Mason ever did was hire Miss Ella Rain to take care of his mansion, Waverly Hall, and to keep his boys-Tucker and Mutt-out of sight. A single and childless black woman of abiding faith, Miss Ella raised the boys, loved them like her own, and did her best to protect them during Rexs drunken rages. After she died, however, Mutts mental disorder rapidly deteriorated and Tucker, alone and overwhelmed, committed Mutt to a mental hospital.
Now Tucker hides behind a successful career-traveling the world as an international photographer. But he can only run for so long. When Mutt escapes from the mental hospital and a childhood friend, Katie, reappears with an abusive husband on her trail, he must face the demons of his childhood. Rather than sink into tragedy, he must consider facing his father and opening his heart once again.
Wrapped in Rain is a tough and tender novel about weathering adversity and recognizing the manyfaces of love, regardless of who, how, where, or why. Love is a risk-but its far more dangerous to live without it.
