We discuss SFPL’s On the Same Page book selection for July/Aug., Wild Rain by Beverly Jenkins.

 

Wild Rain follows the story of a Black female rancher, Spring, in Wyoming after the Civil War. Spring has triumphed over a turbulent past.  But now Spring owns her own ranch, wears jeans instead of dresses and is not looking for love. Then in walks Garrett McCray, an escaped slave, now reporter in Washington who has come to Wyoming to do a story on doctors for his Black newspaper. Garrett thinks Dr. Colton Lee will be an interesting subject – until he meets Dr. Lee’s sister Spring.
