“Martin spins an engaging story about healing and the triumph of love . . . Filled with delightful local color.” —Publishers Weekly
"Tucker, I want to tell you a secret." Miss Ella curled my hand into a fist and showed it to me.
"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.
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. But finding peace and starting anew will take a measure of grace that Tucker scarcely believes in.
“Read this book and watch the sun come out.” – John Dyson, writer, Reader’s Digest
“Charles Martin is changing the face of inspirational fiction one book at a time. Wrapped in Rain is a sentimental tale that is not to be missed.” —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.” —Duncan Murrell, editor and writer

Wrapped in Rain
A terrific faith-filled story. I worked in an adult psychiatric inpatient hospital unit in the 1970's so the recounting of Mutt's medication and treatment was pretty much what I saw happen. The Biblical wisdom and love of Miss Ella was inspiring. A realistic story of horrendous atrocity against the boys and what the love and wisdom of Miss Ella could do to help them survive and later thrive. A wonderful story of resilience and faith.
Wrapped in Rain
I spent all day, comfy and snug, reading this entire book. It wrapped me in warmth and love. I truly loved this book.
Love love love
I think this is my favorite of Charles Martin's books. Such a powerful story. Moved me to tears.
