"Rain On My Wings" by Evelyn Horan
Published by Publish America
Copyright April 2005
Genre:young adult
ISBN:1413767311


Having problems at home with her mom and stepdad, Linda leaves California in search of her Aunt Ruby in West Texas. Arriving at her aunt's house, Linda thought that this would be the perfect opportunity to get her life back in order and not worry about anything. Linda's mother gave her permission to stay at Aunt Ruby's for a while and so she got settled in.

Linda made friends easily, becoming the popular girl from California. She joined the cheerleading squad and had a date for the senior prom. While everything was going great at school, things weren't so great at home. Aunt Ruby's husband, J.R. was always teasing and touching Linda in uncomfortable ways. Linda was afraid to say anything to her aunt, but had a feeling Ruby knew what was going on. Ruby had become depressed over her withered looks and broken teeth. Life on a farm was hard work and Aunt Ruby had suffered the consequences. Ruby knew that J.R. was cheating on her with a younger, prettier woman from across the way, but loved her husband and wanted to make things work.

Linda tried staying away from her uncle as much as she could, but one night everything changed for Linda. The situation with her uncle took a turn for the worse and even Aunt Ruby was powerless. Linda does not expect the events that follow.

The author writes a most powerful story about abuse within a household and behind closed doors. This story can really open your eyes to what's happening all over the world. Set in the 1950s in West Texas, you really get a feel for the characters. Ms. Horan gets deep into the characters' minds and pulls out their innermost thoughts. A good read.
