Judd Markley knew he could never set foot underground again. The mine collapse that nearly killed him and claimed his brother's life meant leaving West Virginia forever. Although that hard Appalachian world was all he knew, he put it behind him and headed for the open sky of the thriving town of 1954 Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

Larkin Heyward's life in the beach town is uncomplicated, mostly volunteer work and dancing at the Pavilion. But she dreams of one day doing more and being more--maybe moving to the hills and hollers of Kentucky to help the poor children of Appalachia. But she's never even met someone who's lived there--until she encounters Judd, the newest employee at her father's timber company.

Drawn together in the wake of a hurricane that changes Myrtle Beach forever, Judd's and Larkin's dreams pull them in divergent directions. It will take a significant sacrifice to keep them together--or maybe, it will take a miracle.

When readers ask which of my books is my favorite, I typically say it's the one I'm working on. But I think THIS one may continue to be my favorite. I finally have my coal miner hero in Judd Markley and he's a little bit of so many family members who are dear to me. I hope you fall in love with h...

I wasn't sure I was going to like The Sound of Rain, as I'd not read by Sarah Loudin Thomas before. But I shouldn't have worried. I usually love books set in the 1950s, and this one was so fun and also meaningful and tender. Judd Markley leaves behind the Appalachian Mountains after a mine cave-in...

I have been really conflicted over what my final rating for this book will be. The writing style is beautiful and lyrical, raising my overall rating, while there are plot holes big enough to chuck a horse through, which lowers the rating. Let's see if I can't talk it out with myself for my review...

Sarah Loudin Thomas has written a well researched historical and very romantic story. There’s no doubt about that. If you enjoy romance set in interesting places and times, I think you should check this one out. It’s definitely a love story for the hopeless romantics. But, I can’t say it was my fa...

The Sound Of Rain by Sarah Loudin Thomas is a marvellous Christian historical romance which I devoured. It was a cracking story set in 1954 which wove certain facts into fiction. With a comprehensive cast of characters, the reader will find that they weave their way into your heart. The novel's mai...

A well written novel with beautiful descriptions and a vintage charm that returns us to the 50’s. Things I loved: I enjoyed the slow burn of the novel, the atmospheric writing that pulled you backward in time. The author did a fabulous job of immersing the reader into the logging era, the dancing...
