Wait for the Rain by Maria Murnane brings to mind a girl’s trip of rediscovery, especially after meeting the characters in this book. The main character, Daphne is going through a rough time since her divorce and with her ex-husband decided to remarry. Daphne needs a change so she takes a vacation with her college friends to the Caribbean to celebrate they are turning forty. Daphne’s luck changes after meeting Clay Hansen, a handsome man to make her forget all the issues she left at home. Clay is younger than she is which causes hesitation but Daphne may just let her hair down.

As the story progresses, you learn more about these three friends and everything that has happened to them before turning forty. This was a well-written book with well-developed characters. The focus of the book, which is these women rediscovering who they are and what they want out of life, keeps you reading. It also helps you understand there is life after divorce especially when you have close friends who are there for you. The message in this book is helpful for those dealing with divorce, break-ups and just wanting a change in their life. This book would be a wonderful book club selection and I recommend it to others.
