Because of the Rain
With the busy years of motherhood fulfilled and her daughters settled in college, Anna Marquette is now free to pursue her dream of a career in counseling. With the loving support of her husband Paul, she is well on the way to reaching her goal––until a trip to Orlando, and one unimaginable night that will change their lives forever. Their love for God and for each other is put to the ultimate test as they confront the heart-wrenching decisions before them. Can their love survive even this?
God can redeem even the worst situation we can imagine. He is in the storm every bit as much as he is in the rainbow.
Why the author wrote this book:
BECAUSE OF THE RAIN was originally published as In the Still of Night (Bethany House Publishers 1997). I wanted to explore what being pro-life means even in the worst imaginable scenario––when a "crisis" pregnancy is the result of a rape, and when the mother of the baby has already raised her family.
