Drying up bit by bit since her mother died, Nola spiritually withers under a father who withholds his affection the way God restrains the Oklahoma rain. A hasty marriage to Russ, a young preacher, doesn't relieve her emotional drought. When a mysterious but attentive drifter enters her life, she betrays her marriage vows. Can Russ forgive her? 416 pages, softcover from Tyndale.

Editorial Reviews

Starred review.
As far as inspirational love stories go, Pittman has crafted an unconventional one. . . Nola is vividly fleshed out, and, through her viewpoint, Pittman effectively contrasts the repercussions of forgiveness when it is withheld and granted.
Pittman makes a departure from her usual genre with an elegantly written novel. The main characters are nearly all unsympathetic, which could pull the reader from the story, yet the tale is so well told it will stay with you. 4 stars
Demonstrating her versatility as a novelist, Pittman has written a moving tale of temptation, surrender, guilt, and redemption that is quite different from her “Sister Wives” series. Nola is an unreliable narrator, but she’s also a compelling storyteller. The unusual setting of the Oklahoma Dust Bowl of the 1930s adds historical interest and parallels the destruction of Nora’s life. This intricately plotted novel of one woman’s journey of faith will certainly have wide appeal.
When Nola Merrill married a preacher, she knew his loyalty would be divided between her and his devoted parishioners, but she never imagined that her commitment as a faithful wife would be challenged by a mysterious stranger. Living in Featherling, Oklahoma, during the Dust Bowl, Nola is suffocating both in the cloud of dirt and under the weight of her scandalous secret. Is her father right, that this drought-driven nightmare is God’s punishment for her inability to find happiness with her station in life? As the gritty winds erode her nerves, she must choose whether to suffer in silence or escape in shame. Pittman expertly presents this compelling first-person story of sin, secrets, and a struggle to find forgiveness in herself and in God in Nola’s lilting Oklahoma drawl and turns the pervasive dust into a powerful metaphor. Although there are only brief, tasteful scenes of passion, Pittman manages to generate a palpable, simmering heat throughout the novel, satisfying readers’ thirst for drama, deceit, and deliverance.
