There are things we know nothing about. Rainmaking, for instance. Believers will tell you it's as real as the ground beneath your feet. Imogene Parker would have been the first to count herself a skeptic, until the day she met Thomas Finn. From that day on, nothing in her life would ever be the same.
Return now to the summer of 1921. Tulsa is about to burn. A young black man is accused of assaulting a white woman in broad daylight and the incendiary opinions of one newspaper stoke the passions of this divided city—a stage for the worst racial conflict in American history, and events for which we may never know the truth.
For history buffs and readers who loved To Kill A Mockingbird and Sometimes a Great Notion, this is a must-read book. A gripping, tragic love story, Water Darling lays bare the heart and soul of a nation and its people in a time of change.
