James Bloom has prayed three years for rain and five years for a wife. His dreams are demolished on Palm Sunday, 1935, when a catastrophic dust storm hits Oklahoma, and his neighbor’s niece has to ride out the storm at his house–overnight. The next day, he’s forced to marry her, an East coast city girl who can’t speak. Could this be God’s plan?
Married to a stranger in the dusty Oklahoma wasteland, Lily Driggers longs for her Savannah home. Yet somehow, her new husband is the only one who understands her silence.
As Easter approaches, Lily and James wonder if there is hope after the storm.
