It Rained All Night: Day 3 of the Countdown

It’s day three of the It Rained All Night Countdown, and today we take a closer look at the second MC: Mikko. His family is Finnish, and he has a melodic Finnish accent when he speaks. This may or may not be a loving nod to my darling husband…whose family is from Finland. 😍

It Rained All Night: who is main character Mikko?

We stood there, side by side; for minutes or hours, I neither knew nor cared. And when we both opened our eyes at the same time, as if on cue, he turned to me and said, “Thank you so much for joining me.” His voice was melodic, with a pronounced Finnish accent, his tone soft. As soft as the raindrops on my face.

Today’s song is by The Cult. Beware of lead singer Ian Astbury’s microphone technique 😁

Rain by The Cult

I love the rain
Well, I love the rain
Here she comes again
I love the rain

Welcome back tomorrow when the song will be performed by one of my girl-crushes 😍


Can a chance meeting in the rain change someone’s life? 

Meeting someone who can make him stop going is an eye-opener for Henrik. The man, Mikko, is his complete opposite, a steady rock in the wild rainstorm that is Henrik’s life, but the connection between them is both unexpected and instantaneous. Their encounter only lasts a few minutes, but before they part, they exchange phone numbers.

They live far away from each other, but soon they text and call daily, until Mikko is Henrik’s dearest friend and most trusted person. But a late-night question on the phone has Henrik re-evaluating his feelings. It’s impossible to love someone you’ve only met in person once…right? 

Is the connection Henrik and Mikko forged long distance enough to sustain them when they meet again? And will their love be strong enough to give them the happily ever after they deserve?
