Dinah Taylor has an orderly life that is just how she likes it. A perfectly furnished luxury apartment, a satisfying career as a scientist and CEO of her own company, and an uncomplicated personal life. But all of that changes when she meets seven-year-old Jonah.
The boy shows up one day, a scruffy dog by his side, in front of her office building. Dinah knows nothing about kids and even less about animals, but after she buys him breakfast, he shows up the next day...and the next. She tries to learn more about him, to help him, but he's remarkably skilled at evading her questions. And then, late one night, he calls her in a panic-his dog has been badly injured. Dinah rushes them to a local animal clinic, where she meets Garret, a veterinarian with a thriving practice and a passion for drawing. Though Jonah takes to Garret right away, for some reason neither understands, Dinah and Garret just don't mesh. But for Jonah's sake, their lives continue to collide, and slowly the relationship between these three strangers begins to change.

In Heaven Sent Rain Dinah Taylor is a very successful, important person who lives alone. She has an ordered life, has white furniture, white clothes. Everything she wants and doesn’t have to worry about anyone except for her company.
Jonah a very little boy and his dog need someone to care for them. She doesn’t realize it at first, but she will be that care giver. Dinah doesn’t like little boys and especially dogs.
Then she meets the vet Garret and things get really interesting. Dinah and Garret really clash and can’t seem to get along except for Jonah’s sake.
This book is full of love, struggles, heartaches, but also peace and knowledge of His love. Sometimes God sends us rain and we don’t think it’s good, but without rain where would we be. All things work together for good. I recommend this beautiful book.
