My review 
This book had my brain and my heart on a roller coaster! My first thought was dang : Charles went secular again, with no God (and no hope) in his story at all. Then, as the intent was revealed, the allegory to the Greatest Sacrifice became clearer. I know a ton of people saw this as fantastic, heartwarming storytelling. Others saw a true tribute to those who fought valiantly in ‘Nam but returned to shame. Many read this as a lasting-love story. But it’s much more than that, and I am thankful Martin has gone back to honoring God with his great gifts.

Book description 
New York Times bestselling author Martin offers us “grace, mercy, and forgiveness in this sweeping love story.”*
Allie is still recovering from the loss of her family’s beloved waterfront restaurant on Florida’s Gulf Coast when she loses her second husband to a terrifying highway accident. Devastated and losing hope, she shudders to contemplate the future—until a cherished person from her past returns.

Joseph has been adrift for many years, wounded in both body and spirit and unable to come to terms with the trauma of his Vietnam War experiences. Just as he resolves to abandon his search for peace and live alone at a remote cabin in the Carolina mountains, he discovers a mother and her two small children lost in the forest. A man of character and strength, he instinctively steps in to help them get back to their home in Florida. There he will return to his own hometown—and witness the accident that launches a bittersweet reunion with his childhood sweetheart, Allie.
When Joseph offers to help Allie rebuild her restaurant, it seems the flame may reignite—until a forty-five-year-old secret begins to emerge, threatening to destroy all hope for their second chance at love.
In Send Down the Rain, Charles Martin proves himself to be a storyteller of great wisdom and compassion who bears witness to the dreams we cherish, the struggles we face, and the strengths we must summon when life seems to threaten what we hold most dear.
