The Scent of Rain

(A Novel)

by Julianne Jones

Book Cover: The Scent of Rain
Pages: 215

It rained the day Damien proposed. A gentle falling rain that carried the salt from the ocean and released the scents from the nearby flowering bushes. Madi thought he couldn't have chosen a more romantic time or place than the little pavilion beside the beach with the rain providing a veil around them. As he slipped the solitaire ring on to her finger she thought she must be the happiest person alive. Damien loved her!

Damien Hamilton was everything Madeline Johnstone could wish for. Tall, good-looking, charming, and with an exciting career, she couldn’t believe that he had chosen her. The day of their wedding she believed all her dreams had come true. Little did she know that the nightmare was only beginning.

The choices Madi makes will cause ripples that will affect not only her but also her daughter, Jaena, her family and friends, destroy a lifelong friendship, and jeopardise Jaena’s relationship with the handsome Mitchell Gallagher

Reviews:Linda Rainey on Goodreads wrote:

Judge not lest ye be judged.

The Scent of Rain is a sweet Christian romance by Julieann Jones.
I loved the intertwining of two stories and two generations.
We see the romance with many ups and downs.
The thing we learn from this book is not to judge other people.

A Fantastic read! The beauty of true love, worth waiting for!

Wow, a book departure for Ms. Jones. A story a lot of women can relate to, or know someone in the same situation. Madi is a lady we want to cry for and care about and help her. Bravo to this author, excellent book, on a tough subject. The consequences of peoples' actions, and the far reaching effect they have on family and friends. Women suffer in silence too long because everyone is fooled by an abusive husband. They appear to be a great guy, to everyone, but at home, it is a different story. You will root for Madi and Marcus (You will love Marcus, a fine, fine, patient man) and Jaena and Mitchell I really recommend this book. If you want to read two enter twined love stories with trust, heart and beauty. You want to have a love like these two women. Give this book a try, you will not regret it!
