When It Rains: The Umbrella Collection, by Prudence Hayes-Four Stars


I can find only one singular flaw with ‘When It Rains’ and that is that there are quite a few typos. Seeing as it doesn’t interfere with the story itself, I simply overlooked it. People who are ‘grammar Nazis’ may find fault in this, but I for one couldn’t help but be completely involved in the story.

The story is a vivid one. It brings you inside the mind of a mentally ill girl who tries so hard to be complete and whole. Nora is a likeable character, and someone that is easy for me to relate to. Not that I have voices in my head, or suffer from such a serious case of what is obviously PTSD, but I lost my mother abruptly when I was eighteen and can fully understand what a horrible grieving process one is forced to endure. I love the ending of the book. Life has a way of dealing out karma that can sometimes amaze people, and this book shows just that. It is a believable ending with a hint of fairy-tale in it.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants a good, solid read with no fluff added. I don’t recommend this book for anyone under the age of eighteen, as there is some graphic material that young audiences may find disturbing.
