About the Book:
“Small towns have big stories.” That was a lesson Katie’s father taught her years ago. A lesson she’s taken to heart. And right now, Katie is desperate for a big story. Reeling from the recent loss of her father and with her agent breathing down her neck for the next book, the twenty-one-year-old writer picks a spot on the map and finds herself bound for a middle-of-nowhere town called Bishopville, South Carolina.
Taking a chance on the words of a local grocer, Katie stumbles upon a rare breed of dogs raised by the town doctor and his nephew Kyle. The only problem? Kyle isn’t interested in telling stories—especially not to a big-city girl who can’t seem to sit still. In an attempt to win him over as the clock winds down, Katie finds herself immersed in Kyle’s world, doing everything but writing.
When inspiration finally strikes, Katie is faced with an unforeseen catastrophe and a truth she can no longer ignore. While she has come to love the dogs, the real story may be about Kyle Walker.
Seeing The Dogs.
From where Katie stood, they looked down on what appeared to be an empty pasture. A myriad of different trees surrounded it. The land was flat, and quiet. Yet, it almost felt as if all of nature were crowded in around it just waiting for something to happen.
That's when Katie saw him. He was several hundred feet away, so it was too far to be certain, but it looked like the outline of the same man she’d seen earlier.
At first, he was alone as he walked out of a small clearing and into the open field, but seconds later the first dog appeared. He was slightly bigger than the rest, who followed in pairs. By her count there were fifteen dogs, and not once did they break formation, stopping a few paces in front of the man.
When I received the invite to participate in the Blog Tour of ‘Hope In Every Raindrop’ I immediately found myself being drawn to this story. It sounded very interesting and I signed up as soon as I could.
In ‘Hope In Every Raindrop’ we meet Katie Price. Katie is a writer who recently lost her father and with that her inspiration to write stories. With her agent calling regularly and pushing her to write another story, Katie is desperate to be able to write again. When Katie finds a gift from her mother to her father from years ago, she decides to take a gamble and to take a trip. After days of driving Katie finds herself in the little town of Bishopville, South Carolina. Without having a real plan for what she is going to do there, Katie decides to take the jump and visit the land, a local grocer told her about. There Katie tumbles upon a rare breed of dogs raised by the an old man and his nephew Kyle. From the moment Katie sees these dogs and their trainer Kyle, she knows she has found her story.
Although I was drawn to this book from the moment I read about it, I didn’t really know what I could expect. But from the moment I started reading this book I just knew I was going to love it.
This book begins very slowly, with an introduction into the life of Katie, a struggling young writer. Not bad slow, it perfectly fits the story and makes you wonder about the rest of this book.
Wesley Banks wrote a beautiful story and I loved the way he wrote everything so clearly. Especially the way he describes the dogs, every dog comes to life in this book and it’s just beautiful. Somehow this book almost felt like an fairytale to me, with the ‘magic’ of those special dogs, the sweet old Doc who took Katie in from the moment she arrived on his doorstep, and Kyle, the mysterious and passionate guy who really has a gift with dogs.
There is definitely some very nice romance going on in this book. It’s a sweet romance, very enjoyable to read and it definitely makes you feel those butterflies. But the romance is not the most important part of this book. This book is much more about hope and trying to find a way in life. And it’s just a beautiful story, which I couldn’t get enough of.
This book is definitely one I will be thinking of for a long time. It’s beautiful and I loved it all the way.
