Before the rain falls

Camille Di Maio

Book - 2017

After serving seventy years in prison for the murder of her sister, Eula, Della Lee has finally returned home to the Texas town of Puerto Pesar. She's free from confinement and ready to tell her secrets before it's too late. She finds a willing audience in journalist Mick Anders, who is reeling after his suspension from a Boston newspaper and in town, reluctantly, to investigate a mysterious portrait of Eula that reportedly sheds tears. He crosses paths with Dr. Paloma Vega, who's... visiting Puerto Pesar with her own mission: to take care of her ailing grandmother and to rescue her rebellious younger sister before something terrible happens. Paloma and Mick have their reasons to be in the hot, parched border town whose name translates as Port of Regret. But they don't anticipate how their lives will be changed forever. Moving and engrossing, this dual story alternates between Della's dark ordeals of the 1940's and Paloma and Mick's present day search for answers about roots, family, love, and what is truly important in life.
