Review of Three Days of Rain by Christine Hughes

Three Days of Rain
Christine Hughes
I have mixed emotions about Three Days of Rain. I loved the book, but I'm filled with so much emotion right now. I want to be mad at Hughes for the ending, but I can't be mad because it was wonderfully written. Hughes really drew me in with the character's emotions. I could feel the saddness, the angry, the joy, the happiness, and the grief at each moment as it emerged in the book. And I'm not ashamed to say that I cried. I've only ever cried during one other book, and for that, I can say that this was a powerful and emotional novel. Hughes captured my attention with her debut novel Torn many months ago and she captured it again. I could relate to the ghosts of the past that the main character lives with and the darkness he has dwelled in for so long. As he emerged from that darkness, Hughes really touched my soul.
