Just when it looks like forgive and forget is no longer an option, a car accident gives Eric the second chance of a lifetime. A concussion causes his wife to forget details of her life, including the chasm between them. No one knows when-or if-Kyra's memory will return, but Eric seizes the opportunity to win back the woman he's never stopped loving.

Publisher's Description

2012 Christy Award finalist, Contemporary standalone category.
From the bestselling author of Crossing Oceans comes a powerfully moving story that tests the limits of love’s forgiveness. Like many marriages, Eric and Kyra Yoshida’s has fallen apart slowly, one lost dream and misunderstanding at a time, until the ultimate betrayal finally pushes them beyond reconciliation. Just when it looks like forgive and forget is no longer an option, a car accident gives Eric the second chance of a lifetime. A concussion causes his wife to forget details of her life, including the chasm between them. No one knows when—or if—Kyra’s memory will return, but Eric seizes the opportunity to win back the woman he’s never stopped loving.

Publisher's Weekly

When Kyra Yoshida loses portions of her memory following a car accident, her estranged husband, Eric, sees a chance to salvage their failing marriage; she doesn't remember they've separated. Unfortunately, he's just slept with a young co-worker, so he is seized by guilt and trapped in dishonesty, even as he comes to understand he still loves his wife of 20 years. This central emotional dyad is complicated by the presence of a son, Benji, who's been discharged from the Navy for medical reasons, thwarting his youthful dream. Holmes (Crossing Oceans) is a capable writer, but her sophomore effort is uneven. Some readers might like more backstory of why and how the marriage went aground, but there's little given. The story arc of redemption is logical, but the ending feels abrupt. Quirky and flawed minor characters throw the main action into moral relief, but Eric's buddy Larry is incredibly good despite having his own problems, and the troubled youth Angelo who becomes a street preacher is over the top. The narrative has moving moments, but they don't add up to a persuasive whole. (Sept.) Copyright 2011 Reed Business Information.

    This was a very interesting story. It held my attention all the way to the end. It captivated me right from the start. I think it's a great story for people who are going through a divorce to rethink their reasons for doing that in the first place.

    The one thing I noticed right away with this book is that it is written from a mans perspective by a woman. I wasnt sure if it was going to work out or not considering the topic of infidelity, but it did. Gina Holmes did a great job of writing this story.

    Eric Yoshida fell in the love the first time he laid eyes on the woman who would later become his wife, Kyra. Their marriage was good for many years, but then outside interferences, such as work, got in the way. After a separation, Eric fell to flirting and a one night stand with a co-worker. When an accident leaves his wife with some memory loss, he sees this as an opportunity to start over. But life just isnt that simple. I wish the author had dug a little deeper into their struggles.

    Disappointing. I really enjoyed "Crossing Oceans" and was anxious to read" Dry As Rain." but this novel was lengthy without much substance.

    Eric and Kyra's marriage is in trouble when she loses her memory. She remembers most things, but not that her husband had an affair and they were separated. Eric hopes to win back Kyra's heart before she remembers all the details of their marriage.

    I found the book interesting, especially since it was written from the husband's point of view. It was a good story with a decent ending.

    Dry as rain was a pretty interesting novel to read. Gina Holmes brings her own style of writing which combines humour and romance.

    However there's another part to my opinion about this.

    Meets expectations, honestly for this book : around 2.5 out of 5.

    The beginning was promising and just flat out good. But as I kept reading, it seemed to me like the story could have had more life. It could have been more engaging. It just didn't come and get me as the reader; And I think that's because the characters (including the main one) could have been more (or better) developed. (Think about a good book you've read that just seemed like it could be a movie, because the characters were so interesting and felt 'ALIVE!')

    Alot of predictable things in this story, also.

    There's also the fact that salvation and freedom offered through Jesus Christ was not a very much present topic in this. God was mentionned and was important, but not THAT important in the story (it seems to me). And when dealing with a subject like infidelity in a marriage, that is worth noticing.

    But I did laugh out loud while reading and some of the things said got me really thinking...

    You go, Gina Holmes!
