The Scent of Rain and Lightning, Paperback Book

The Scent of Rain and Lightning Paperback


Twenty-six years ago, when she was only three months old, Jody Linder's father was murdered as she slept in her cot.

Her mother vanished, presumed dead. Local trouble-maker Billy Crosby confessed to the murder and was locked up, leaving his wife and son to face the consequences in the small Kansas town of Rose.

But his son Collin, now a lawyer, has successfully petitioned for a retrial, which means that - for now - Billy is back in town.

Jody is horrified - the man who tore her family apart is living just a few streets away.

So why does she find herself wondering if Collin is right?

What if Billy was innocent, and her close-knit family has been hiding a terrible secret all these years?

Haunting and powerful, this is Nancy Pickard's finest achievement to date.
