Product description

From the Publisher

Dani Manchester’s whole life is built around the beauty she sees: The ever-changing, sparkling blues of the Currituck Sound and the Atlantic Ocean. The kinetic swirls of paint on a canvas. The lovely and opinionated preteen daughter she never expected to be raising alone. So when Dani receives a diagnosis of retinitis pigmentosa—a genetic disease that will slowly narrow and darken her vision, eventually stealing it altogether—she fears she’ll lose herself.

When the Rain Ends is an emotional and powerful story about motherhood, grief, and connection, and it won’t come as a surprise to anyone who knows me that I cried buckets as I read. The catharsis of connecting with both Dani, who attempts to cope with her fears and sorrow in private, and then with her daughter, Bella, who wears her emotions right at the surface during her nascent teenage years, was real and fulfilling. As soon as I finished reading, I wanted to call my own mom.

Settle in with this book by Mary Ellen Taylor, and you’ll be swept away by an uplifting tale of hope and love.

—Alison Dasho, Editor

A southerner by birth, Mary Ellen Taylor’s love of her home state, Virginia, and its past is evident in her contemporary women's fiction, from her first The Union Street Bakery, set in Alexandria, to her latest, Spring House, which takes place on the state’s Eastern Shore. In Spring Cottage and prior novels, Mary Ellen’s protagonists search for their place in the world. They explore issues of family, home and belonging, and their stories entwine with those of the locales in which they unfold, encompassing mysteries past and present.

Richmond born, Mary Ellen has lived there most of her life. She grew up in a family that appreciates stories of all kinds, from a well-told anecdote to a good yarn or a tall tale. Perhaps it was inevitable that she would embrace her storytelling heritage, walk away from her marketing job and challenge herself to become a published author.

"I realized early on the tremendous power stories have to inspire laughter, love, sorrow and even fear. It didn't matter if they were found in the pages of a book, spoken in hushed tones around a campfire, or shared at an old-fashioned family reunion. Stories create connections, and I knew that was what I wanted to do," says Mary Ellen.

Alongside writing, cooking and baking are important creative outlets for Mary Ellen, who's been known to name recipes in honor of her characters. Just a few years ago, she earned her Baking and Pastry Arts Certificate at the University of Richmond's Culinary Arts Program. "In some ways, I liken baking to my efforts as a writer. You need to learn the basic tools of the trade before you can push the limits and create a distinctive sweet dessert or savory novel.”

Her two passions —writing and baking—merged for the first time in The Union Street Bakery. Since then, she's shared favorite recipes, connected to her books Sweet Expectations, At the Corner of King Street, The View from Prince Street, Winter Cottage and Spring House.

Mary Ellen is also known nationally as New York Times and USA Today bestselling suspense novelist Mary Burton. Together, they have published thirty-eight novels, with Mary Burton’s latest, I See You, debuting October 2019.

When not traveling or holed up writing, Mary Ellen spends time with her husband enjoying their empty nest and spoiling their miniature dachshunds, Buddy, Bella and Tiki.
