The rain had let up by the time I pulled around back of the house and parked next to the fence. Mist covered the windshield, but a new moon was breaking through the clouds and scattering in dim spotlights across the pasture. Black and brilliant specks of shiny flint covered the pasture like a rhinestone blanket. I pulled my collar up, stepped through the fence, and trudged through the soft dirt, picking up arrowheads. Halfway across the pasture, my hand was full. I looked around me while the moonlight and rain sewed themselves into my shoulders

Charles Martin is changing the face of inspirational fiction one book at a time. Michael Morris, author of A Place Called Wiregrass and Live Like You Were Dying. This is the story of a real person’s real struggle with the uncertainties of faith, unadorned with miracles of the deus ex machina sort but full of the sort of miracles that attend every day life if you bother to notice. Charles Martin notices, and for that I commend him. He’s unafraid of tackling the crucial questions-life, death, love, sacrifice

Wrapped in Rain book. In my mind Charles Martin compares to Jan Karon

Wrapped in Rain book. Tucker, I want to tell you a secret  . In my mind Charles Martin compares to Jan Karon. Both have unique, God given writing styles beyond what most authors can accomplish, and their way with words captures me like few can. I love tucking in to a Charles Martin book because I know the awe factor will grab me from the first line. However, like Jan Karon, he can be just a tad earthy, not with swear words, just when their more worldly characters are talking, Wrapped in Rain by Charles Martin Present day story set near Jacksonville, Florida.

The Dead Don't Dance. Wrapped in Rain was released in 2005 is Martin’s second novel. Tucker deals in tragedy and pain. He is a photographer, who is internationally famous; has been around the world and seen it all. In his pictures, he captures things that other people do not see. He was raised in a large estate in the South with his brother Mutt, by their housekeeper Miss Ella Rain. She loved the pair of motherless kids like they were her own. The only good thing that their father ever did was hire her to take care of the boys and the estate.

On a sprawling Southern estate, Tucker and his younger brother, Mutt, were raised by their housekeeper, Miss Ella Rain, who loved the motherless boys like her own.

Hiring her to take care of Waverly Hall and the boys was the only good thing their father ever did. When his brother escapes from a mental hospital and an old girlfriend appears with her son and a black eye, Tucker is forced to return home and face the agony of his own tragic past. Though Miss Ella has been gone for many years, Tuck can still hear her voice-and her prayers.

What I saw stopped me. On the south side of the road-our property-fresh tire tracks in the mud showed where some type of heavy sedan or van had pulled off the shoulder and stopped. of the ditch, I found several cigarette butts and a jumbo Styrofoam coffee cup. Any passing car could have stopped there for a break; that wasn't unusual. But when I looked up, I began to worry

USA TODAYbestseller from the author ofThe Mountain Between Us, now a major motion picture!

"Life is a battle, but you can't fight it with your fists. You got to fight it with your heart."

An internationally famous photographer, Tucker Mason has traveled the world, capturing things other people don’t see. But what Tucker himself can’t see is how to let go of the past and forgive his father.

After reading "The Mountain Between Us" I was grateful to discover CHARLES MARTIN'S books are available on AMAZON Kindle. "Wrapped in Rain"(the story behind the title is revealed) is the second of his books I've read. It is easily the best story about the love between two brothers I've read and taught me a great deal about how and why men think and process life events and memories. There are past issues about an abusive father; the woman that reared the two boys, a childhood sweetheart that "shows up"....important stuff the main character "Tucker" walks through with us like a friend would.

Charles Martin never fails to satisfy my hunger for Southern fiction. I just finished Wrapped in Rain (Thomas Nelson, 2005). It's a heart-wrenching-warming saga of two half-brothers who battle the demons of a highly dysfunctional and abusive childhood. Standing beside them is an equally abused, but spiritually fierce caregiver who never stops believing in the power of love and prayer.

Martin tackles some very tough topics: mental illness, alcoholism, infidelity, brutality, and deceit. But somehow he manages to coddle them in a warm blanket of hope. You will be rooting for Tucker, Mutt, and little Jase. They deserve better than what life (and their fathers) have dealt them. Read Wrapped in Rain and see if they find a way to forgive the unforgiveable.

This story is mostly a downer, but written in such a way that yoju can't let it go. The father is a certified monster, one son goes to amental institution , the other carries the scars of his abuse for his whole young life, turning ti bitterness and hate, but persevering to become the success his father always doubted he would be.. The housekeeper is a saint, staying to mother the children as best she can as they grow to adulthood,, and teaching them lessons they will recall later in life. The second son meets an abused woman and her son trying to escape danger to their lives. The second son recalls the lessons he learned and mellows into a good father figure and perhaps even a husband. The rain clouds lift and the future looks brighter. Well written because the cycles of turmoil and then the description of natural settings give you the relief needed to keep going, Well written.

This is an amazing book that draws the reader into a deep and poignant story. Charles Martin provides well-developed characters and a plausible yet unusual storyline that make for a true page turner which compels the reader to keep on reading then provides a satisfactory ending which leaves the reader sated and content at the end. I plan to invest time in reading more of Martin's work. The spiritual aspect to his writing provides such a wonderful contrast to the more frequent gratuitous sex and violence found in all to many modern novels. I highly recommend this book to all readers who want something more from literature than an appeal to the baser nature of humankind. Martin provides a novel that provokes thinking and leaves you thoughtful long after you have finished reading.

This is a tough book to review. There is no way that what I say will give it the justice that it deserves.

Something about this story really hit home, but it's not because I was ever abused. There were situations that I was able to relate to therefore I could almost feel what these boys dealt with.
This is definitely an emotional read.

The author has a gift for sucking you into the scenes to the point that you hold your breath so that the characters don't notice that you are there.

If you are looking for a novel that is deep, filled with heartache, hope, pain, joy, faith, doubt and everything in between, you are going to love Wrapped in Rain. Spectacular novel that teaches the true meaning of LOVE!

I've yet to be disappointed in any CM book.

WRAPPED IN RAIN begins as as sad story discribing the characters and previous circumstances. As it continues along,
you 'see' them as they are now - a product of their past, living in the present & attempting a future littered with the scars of that past.

Some say 'to wordy'. I think, those 'words' vividly paint the scenes.
Some say 'unbelievable' &/or 'over the edge'. I think their
reality, not our perception is the point!

Although, it may not be the perfect or best book I 've ever read, it is vivid in it's imagy....'Mutt' especially, is both hilarious & pitiable. Entertaining - definitely NOT a "cookie-cutter!!

I read a lot. I read a lot of authors. I cannot read anyone else right now - Charles Martin has my attention. I read "When Crickets Cry" a couple of years ago and was amazed by his descriptive writing. You can actually FEEL what he writes! You can HEAR the sounds, SEE the sun shining in through the back of the barn. I buy from a used bookstore, so I never found anymore of his books - that is an indication to me that people are keeping his books! Then on a boon day, I found two more of his books. I devoured, "The Dead Don't Dance", bought the sequel - "Maggie" - on my Kindle because I couldn't wait to search for a used copy. And then read "Where the River Ends" and "The Mountain Between Us". All in a month!! (I think I have three more books to go - with pleasure!) I tried to pick up another author, but simply could not get enough, so I bought "Wrapped In Rain" on my Kindle. This one is by far my favorite so far!! Incredible characters, such description. I could SEE everything he said! Thank you Mrs. Martin for supporting your husband in his dream to write! What a waste if he had taken that job offer and "written on the side"!! Oh, and uh.....having just finished "Wrapped In Rain".....I kind of now miss Mutt! ;-)
