From The Brighter the Light author Mary Ellen Taylor comes an uplifting tale of hope and love between a mother and daughter as they learn that life is a masterpiece in the making.
When artist Dani Manchester learns she’s slowly losing her vision, she becomes unmoored. Her ex-husband died only months before, leaving Dani and her preteen daughter grief stricken. Suddenly, the life Dani built for her family on the Outer Banks feels like a painful reminder of all they’ve lost.
On a whim, Dani sells her waterfront home and buys an old farm inland near the Virginia state line. But Dani’s daughter recoils at the sudden, drastic change. The Outer Banks’ sun-swept beaches, pink dawns, and savage storms are all she’s ever known.
But Dani is resolute, and the pair move to Virginia to embark on a challenging renovation. That summer, their efforts to turn a run-down silo into an art studio bring forth new friends, new loves, and new challenges.
As mother and daughter navigate the fiercest storm of their lives, they learn that instead of waiting for the skies to clear, they can withstand the wind and rain, so long as they do it together.

From the Publisher
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.

This was such a powerful read and while dealing with something as heavy as grief it was still such a positive book.
Absolutely loved it but did feel that it should have been a little longer as the end felt a little too rushed. I needed more!!
