The Scent of Rain and Lightning by Nancy Pickard

Jul 28, 2010

When she was three years old, Jody’s father was murdered and her mother disappeared. Now 26, Jody’s preoccupation with this event is heightened by the prison release of the convicted murderer and his planned return to Rose. While this is not her best work it is a comfortable and interesting read – good for a summer weekend when thinking isn’t on the agenda.
