Silver Rain by Jan Ruth.

Silver Rain by Jan Ruth 

From Goodreads

Al is the black sheep of his family, Kate, the good shepherd of hers. Can black and white become silver, or just a dark and dangerous grey?

Alastair Black has revealed a secret to his wife in a last ditch attempt to save his marriage. A return to his childhood family home at Chathill Farm is his only respite, although he is far from welcomed back by brother George.

Kate, recently widowed and increasingly put upon by daughter, sister and mother, feels her life is over at fifty. Until she meets Alastair. He’s everything she isn’t, but he’s a troubled soul, a sad clown of a man with a shady past. When his famous mother leaves an unexpected inheritance, Kate is caught up in the unravelling of his life as Al comes to terms with who he really is.

Is Alastair Black her true soulmate, or should Sleeping Beauty lie?

My thoughts.

4.5 STARS as opposed to just 4.

This is classic Jan Ruth writing, doing what she does best. All the usual ingredients are there ~ the Welsh countryside, horses, humour and mixed up relationships.

The main characters Al and Kate are like chalk and cheese but as we all know opposites can and often do attract. To find out how and if they attract you'll have to read this story. With a great set of secondary characters, you'll soon be embroiled in all their problems. At times you'll be wanting to bang their heads together and at others you'll be wanting to tell them things that you think they should know.

A great read and I can thoroughly recommend it.
