Fire and Rain by the bestselling author of The Midwife's Confession, Diane Chamberlain, is a mysterious and emotionally compelling novel perfect for fans of Jodi Picoult.
Valle Rosa, a small drought-weary town in Southern California, is under destruction from deadly wildfires. Into the midst of this crisis rolls a handsome stranger calling himself Jeff Cabrio, who claims he can cure the town's troubles by making it rain.
But Cabrio's entrance into the community brings more than just potential rain, and it's not long before the residents' interests turn from the weather to their mysterious neighbour. For tragedy-afflicted sculptress Mia Tanner, Cabrio unearths old wounds and new loves. For struggling journalist Carmen Perez, Cabrio brings the possibility of revitalizing her journalist career through uncovering the truth about him. And ex-major league player Chris Garrett is offered the chance to come to terms with the demise of his career as a professional baseball pitcher. As three lives become irrevocable entwined, it's not long before each is forced to face the ghosts of their past.
