A Calm and Gentle Rain: A Christian Romance

She has lived her life in the midst of a storm.

With a demanding, overbearing father dictating her life, Cecelia Albrecht has never been able to stand on her own. Searching for a way to free herself from him has led her into situations that have only added to the turbulence in her life.

He knows Cecelia in a way that most don’t and would do anything for her.

But even though he cares for her—a lot—Andy Hale has been friend-zoned from the moment their lives collided under the bleachers by the high school football field. Realizing that she has driven most people away through her harsh words, Andy has stayed with her, determined to support her in a way no one else has.

It’s taken awhile, but Andy is finally coming to the point of accepting that the friend zone is where he’s destined to stay with Cecelia. He knows that if he wants love and marriage in his future, he needs to move beyond his feelings for her.

Cecelia has always been told she needs a certain type of man in order to succeed in life, and Andy has never been that man. He still lives at home, and his job pretty much guarantees that he’d never be rich. Will she see him for who he really is in time? Or will she lose the one man who has been a steady presence in her life for years?

Sensitivity Notice
There are parts of this book that may be unsuitable for readers who are sensitive to the aspects of a destructive relationship. Any physical altercations happen off-page, but the emotional and mental fallout is delved into during the course of the story. Though this is a story of hope and love, the journey Andy and Cece have to take is a difficult one.
