9780972636407: When It Rains

Charlie Hunter is unprepared for the consequences with a hasty, life-altering decision she made...leaving her fiancé at the altar. Without explanation to her sisters and without visible remorse, Charlie tries to move forward with the only thing she has, her music.

Her two sisters decide to stay with her at her beach house but each with different intentions. At constant odds, Iris, the youngest and most irresponsible of the three, has no place to go while Catherine, the oldest sister who is guided by maternal guilt, has a hidden agenda of her own. She has one week to bring the family back together.

Each had gone their separate way after their mother's death from Lou Gehrig's disease (ALS) six years ago. In that time, they had never depended on each other and resentment shakes what little thread that holds them together. An unexpected tragedy exposes them to life's cruelty first-hand.

Tormented by the consequences of her decision, Charlie must return to the past to free her inner demons. But, that means facing her darkest fears...that she too bears the family fate. Could she love someone knowing that she could die on him like her mother died on her?

From the Publisher:

When It Rains...is an unforgettable story of sisterly love that captures the strength of friendship, the courage of facing your darkest fears and the unstoppable force of family ties.

About the Author:

When It Rains... was inspired from Marjorie Spoto's true-life experiences. Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease took both her mother and her grandfather. It took three years to pen both script and novel, based on the same story. The story stems from her own fears of having familial type ALS.

Marjorie Spoto lives in Key West, FL with her husband and two children. An ALS Activist and writer, she is currently working on the film version of "When It Rains..." and her next books, The Treasure and Denver Or Bust.
