I love words, and enjoy reading them as much as I do writing. My journey into both began when I was four and taught myself how to read. Somehow, I'd noticed the white space between the words she read and realized that's how to know where one word ended and another started. I listened to her say the words as I looked at each one. One day, I just "got" it. When she found me reading to my dolls and stuffed animals, she thought I'd memorized the stories, but handed me a new book and I could read most of it on my own.
What if after that "chance" encounter they are unable to forget each other?
What if they find themselves drawn together in spite of their drastic differences by their surprising similarities?
What if they somehow find the courage to become friends?
Rain Dance takes the listener into the hearts of these two women as they journey closer to the heart of the One who offers hope and healing.
