    BB28: Review of Send Down the Rain by Charles Martin

    We review the book that was our first introduction to author Charles Martin in today's episode. Send Down the Rain is the latest novel by Charles Martin and it just released in paperback in the past few months. This novel tells a heartwrenching tale of brokenness, deceit, and ultimately, redemption. We also ask about which five books you would choose if you could only save five books on the planet, Nicole has a Bookworm Fact about the top bestsellers of all time, and JD's Bookworm Tip is a resource for the book nerd.
