Publisher's Summary

Third generation Texas Ranger Tyler Steele is the last of a dying breed - a modern-day cowboy hero living in a world that doesn't quite understand his powerful sense of right and wrong and instinct to defend those who can't defend themselves.
Despite his strong moral compass, Ty has trouble seeing his greatest weakness. His hard outer shell, the one essential to his work, made him incapable of forging the emotional connection his wife, Andie, so desperately needed.
Now retired, raising their son, Brodie, on his own, and at risk of losing his ranch, Ty does not know how to rebuild from the rubble of his life. The answer comes in the form of Samantha and her daughter, Hope, on the run from a seemingly inescapable situation. They are in danger, desperate, and alone. Though they are strangers, Ty knows he can help - protecting the innocent is what he does best. As his relationship with Sam and Hope unfolds, Ty realizes he must confront his true weaknesses if he wants to become the man he needs to be.

Love Charles Martin stories!!!!!

I can't say enough about this story! Charles Martin has done it again!!!!! Another amazing story! I laughed, I cried, I felt like I was there..... I'll never look at a car on the side of the road w/out wondering "what is their story"? How could they change my life?

Charles Martin does his homework and can write a story as if he was living it personally. He knows all the history and background of his stories inside and out! A+++++ I can't wait for the next one!!!

Outstanding! Listen, smile, laugh, cry, and learn.

Would you consider the audio edition of Thunder and Rain to be better than the print version?

Never read the printed version. It just couldn't be as good as the audio!

What did you like best about this story?

The lesson. We run out of hope at times. This book is a reminder of hope. Living is the hard part. Gather the courage to live and the hope of tomorrow. What a great writer! I need more of his books to read and remind me.

Which character – as performed by Daniel May and Luci Christian Bell – was your favorite?

All of the characters were performed greatly. The mix of Daniel May and Luci Christian Bell made the story. I so enjoyed hearing Hope as a little girl then as an adult. But, it took both Mr. May and Ms. Bell to put the story on line. Greatly done.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Definitely, I did listen almost in one sitting. Even fell asleep listening.

Any additional comments?

This is a book I really needed to listen to and plan to listen to more of Charles Martin.
