We huddled together around the table, terrified of what was to come. Though we had been warned, the reality of what was happening was almost more than we could bear. We violently pressed our hands to our ears to block the sounds from those outside, but we could not keep from hearing their screams. The sound of fingernails clawing desperately at the sides of the ark went through us like a knife blade. Nothing could be worse than this, I thought. But it did get worse. I began to hear familiar voices. The cries of strangers were harrowing enough, but now I could hear the shouts of my mother's sister and her son. When my wife, Tamara, heard her mother's voice, she could stand no more. ...and so begins The Rain... a fictional but Biblically accurate account of a popular story of the Old Testament. The Rain is a fast moving novel of suspense and romance, mystery and intrigue, failure and success; answering the question: "What might it have been like for Noah and his family as they embarked on the journey of a lifetime?" What others are saying about The Rain "I could not put it down... though based upon a familiar story of Noah's Ark, this book tells the story like no other... " "The Rain is truly refreshing... the author creatively tells a story of the challenges, drama, and humor that COULD have occurred on the ark." "The Rain is a must read... Biblical characters are brought to life in a compelling drama that will captivate the reader from start to finish" "This book is amazing... it will change the way you see things... making you feel like you were there... identifying with the characters" First place winner of the Historical category from The Christian Choice Book Awards.
