Dry As Rain

by Gina Holmes


Price: £8.99
Publisher:Tyndale House Publishers from TMD
Published:17 August 2011
To review Dry as Rain by Gina Holmes is a pleasure. It charts the long course of Eric and Kyra’s marriage which from Page 1 has reached an all but complete halt, not helped by Eric’s straying into dangerous waters with Danielle while at work in a company that sells expensive cars.
From soaps on TV for example, we know by the daily conversations we have, that people take each other on, often repetitively, but sometimes in ways that change the lives of the folk they’re engaging with. The style is compelling, full of Americanisms which are understood by us the other side of the ‘pond’ and often quite humorous. The men are easily drawn from life, and betrayal, lies, posturing and more are handled, often in order to bring to our notice the ways in which old friendships don’t give way when pressures (financial, love, anxiety over health) force challenges for the characters in Dry as Rain.
