Product Description

Scientist and pharmaceutical CEO Dinah Taylor takes comfort in her orderly life, both professionally and within the walls of her luxury apartment. But the morning she buys breakfast for seven-year-old Jonah Morgan and his dog, "Mutt," her life changes in ways she could not have predicted. Breakfasts with Jonah are soon part of Dinah's daily routine, and she finds herself becoming the mysterious boy's main source of refuge. With no children of her own and harrowing memories of childhood, Dinah doubts her ability to help. However, to Jonah, Dinah is like a handpicked guardian angel he'll come to need more desperately than even he anticipates.

Publisher's Description

Dinah Taylor has an orderly life that is just how she likes it. A perfectly furnished luxury apartment, a satisfying career as a scientist and CEO of her own company, and an uncomplicated personal life. But all of that changes when she meets seven-year-old Jonah.

The boy shows up one day, a scruffy dog by his side, in front of her office building. Dinah knows nothing about kids and even less about animals, but after she buys him breakfast, he shows up the next day...and the next. She tries to learn more about him, to help him, but he's remarkably skilled at evading her questions. And then, late one night, he calls her in a panic-his dog has been badly injured. Dinah rushes them to a local animal clinic, where she meets Garret, a veterinarian with a thriving practice and a passion for drawing. Though Jonah takes to Garret right away, for some reason neither understands, Dinah and Garret just don't mesh. But for Jonah's sake, their lives continue to collide, and slowly the relationship between these three strangers begins to change.

    Lauraine Snelling in her new book, Heaven Sent Rain published by FaithWords brings us into the lives of Dinah Taylor, Jonah and Garret Miller.

    From the back cover: Heaven Sent Rain

    Scientist and pharmaceutical CEO Dinah Taylor takes comfort in her orderly life, both professionally and within the walls of her luxury apartment. But the morning she buys breakfast for seven-year-old Jonah Morgan and his dog, Mutt, her life changes in ways she could not have predicted. Breakfasts with Jonah are soon part of Dinahs daily routine, and she finds herself becoming the mysterious boys main source of refuge. With no children of her own and harrowing memories of childhood, Dinah doubts her ability to help. However, to Jonah, Dinah is like a handpicked guardian angel hell come to need more desperately than even he anticipates.

    When a late night call from Jonah sends Dinah rushing his badly injured dog to a clinic, the two meet veterinarian Garret Miller. Though Jonah takes to Garret right away, for some reason neither understands, Dinah and Garret just dont mesh. But for Jonahs sake, their lives continue to collide. Is any relationship possible between these divergent strangers?

    What is the most important thing in all the universe? Why Human relationships of course. And they become even more important when the relationships mirror those of a family as Dinah, Jonah and Garrets do in Heaven Sent Rain. These are some of the best characters to have ever graced a printed page. Ms. Snelling has outdone herself both with these characters and with the plot. Like it or not we need other humans to inter-react with and when we do not have this in our lives we are sadly missing out on what we were created for. Have no fear God is not going to let this go on for long. Each character has a special need that only one of the others can meet. And they have to work out their past issues in order to deal with the present and embrace the future. On top of all of this there is the romance. These are wonderful characters that live and breathe on the pages and you care deeply for them. This book does not disappoint at all. I enjoyed it and I am sure you will also.

    Heaven Sent Rain is a story that captures the heart and tickles the imagination. The tale is written with a flavor of mystery. Readers will find themselves captivated by the character of Jonah and his dog, Downmutt. The central female character is Dinah Taylor who loves to lose herself in research and discovery all to help others gain better health, but the role she must fill is that of CEO along with all the administrative responsibilities. Dinahs life seems orderly and her condos furniture, walls and dcor is all white with nothing out of place. Her routine never changes until she meets Jonah.

    There is a vet whose lives with a menagerie of pets, loves to paint, sketch and draw. His artwork of various animals is displayed on the walls of the waiting room in his practice. Garrett publishes a weekly cartoon with animal characters for fun; though the newspaper would love to run it daily, Garrett declines. For Garrett being an animal doctor is what he is meant to do, and the cartoon is for fun as he doesnt want his love of drawing ruined by the pressure of having to produce something every day of the week.

    Now that is basically the foundation of the story. What readers will discover is the deep faith in God that both Garrett and Jonah possess, but something in Dinahs past keeps her from being close to God. Lauraine Snelling does a wonderful job of slowly peeling back the history of Dinahs younger years to reveal why she is who she is as an adult. By slowly showing Garretts younger years, which are different than Dinahs, he is seen to have an event in the past that keeps him guarding his heart from loving any woman. I couldnt help but fall in love with the little boy character of Jonah and his mother, who appear to live so poorly and yet are rich beyond description in a way few people understand today. This is a great novel that reminds us of Who is more than we will ever understand this side of heaven, but cannot truly live without in our daily lives. Dont miss reading Heaven Sent Rain!

    This is the first time I have read Lauraine Snelling but it won't be the last! I was so caught up in the story I had the hardest time putting this book down to get anything done!!

    Dinah is a single woman, self- sufficient, biochemist and CEO of her own company, and very much in control of her life! Until.... she meets Jonah. She sees him just hanging out in front of her office building with a dog by his side. After taking pity on him, and buying him some breakfast, he shows up more frequently. She cant get him out of her mind... who is he, where is his family, where does he live, what kind of home does he have? He is not opening up.

    After a night time emergency, in which Dinah takes Jonah and his dog to the urgent care vet, her life begins to change forever. They meet Dr G., with whom Dinah seems to clash, but Jonah seems to love. Dinah is able to find out more about Jonahs family, but in doing so, she is sealing her fate. And Dr G.? Well, somehow... God keeps putting him back in the picture. Even he doesnt understand why, when all he wants is to move on and get those eyes out of his mind.

    Lauraine does an incredible job drawing you in to the story. Captivating you with the tale. Keeping you wondering and guessing. But hers is a tale of lives interwoven by God's grace. A tale of how He works in our lives behind the scenes drawing us back to Him even as we are running away. A tale of love, fear, faith and healing. It weaves the grace of God and hope into every corner of these lives. The past cannot be simply buried, it must be opened up and dealt with. And as it is, Gods amazing grace heals the hurts, the wounds, the pain and draws us into his loving arms, those arms that have been there all along guiding, sustaining, and waiting patiently for us to realize the error of our ways.

    Coincidence? No providence is what this book is about! Highly recommended - with time to read! You will be blessed and inspired!

    A big thanks to Lauraine who was willing to send me a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review! I am blessed to receive and read it!

    I only bought the book because I like the cover. The whole time I was reading it I kept looking at the cover of the little boy and the dog. So cute. At the ending of the book Jonah and Dinah were still having problems. The epilogue sounded like they were one big happy family. There was no mention of Jonah or Dinah for that matter going to counseling. I think there should have been a sequel rather than an epilogue. The ending was rushed and disappointing.
