Reviews

""I Will Send Rain" is meticulously researched, deeply felt, and beautifully written, and I loved immersing myself in its harsh and elegant world."
Curtis Sittenfeld

"In" I Will Send Rain" you'll find compassion, heartbreak, and not a word out of place. Meadows shares with John Steinbeck not just a gigantic empathy but a gigantic storytelling gift. This is a novel where love and laughter abide."
Darin Strauss"

"Rae Meadows' "I Will Send Rain" is as lush and powerful as the novel's Dust Bowl setting is dry and cracked--Meadows paints the Bell family's desperation with compassion and warmth, and her precise language turns grit into gold."

"Meadows s strength lies in letting her story be guided by the shadow and light of her well-rendered characters. When tragedy strikes or hope emerges, it makes sense and comes to fruition organically...A vibrant, absorbing novel that stays with the reader."
" Publishers Weekly," starred review
["I Will Send Rain"] make[s] the past feel modern and create[s] an easy kinship between the reader and Meadows s pitch-perfect characters. Alternately delicate and elegiac, glowing and ferocious, this slow dance through the devastation of history leaves readers with a glimpse of the cost to those who stayed to brave the hard times.
"Shelf Awareness"
""
"" "I Will Send Rain" is delightfully vivid, both in the setting and the windows into the characters. The reader can taste the dust, and the longing in the characters' mouths. I didn't feel that I was reading as much as watching, and that kind of dive into prose always speaks highly for a novel. "I Will Send Rain" is an impressive showing from Meadows, well worth checking out.
