miracle in dry season review

"Miracle in a Dry Season" by Sarah Loudin Thomas is a Christian novel told through the eyes of Casewell, a 35 year old bachelor living in West Virginia in 1954.  A new woman with a 5 year old in tow comes to Wise, WV and catches the eye of the town's leading bachelor.  Soon after Perla arrives in Wise, a drought strikes the area and leads the local preacher to blame Perla for the drought.  Seems to think it is punishment for having a child out of wedlock.  Then the witch hunt is on. 
This book was a hard book to get into.  I never really came to care much about the characters.  The witch hunt seems a little ridiculous for 1954; more for a 1354 era really.  The book is well written.  Characters seem well developed.  The writer just could not bring me into the story. The cancer storyline was deeper and more realistic.  I give it three stars.
  I received this book in exchange for a review from Bethany House Publishers.
