Iiiiih, release day is just around the corner and I feel like a kid before Christmas! And I’m still excited, despite writing all these blog posts about it 🙂
Do you like the rain? I do, if I’m inside, by the fire, with a cup of tea and a good book. If I’m walking to the office and it’s pouring down, or raining sideways…not so much. So, I guess my answer is “it depends.” 😀 How about you? Would you stand outside in the rain and enjoy the precipitation like Mikko does when he and Henrik meet for the first time? 🙂
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.
“Thank you for making me stop for a while.”
Ever since that day three years ago, I think about him every time it rains.Quote from It Rained All Night
This song is on my top ten all-time favorites. It’s brilliant. 😍
You will find me by the banks of all four rivers
You will find me at the spring of conciousness
You will find me if you want me in the garden
Unless it’s pouring down with rain
Only one more day and then it’s release day. Wohooo. Come back for more tomorrow.
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?
