Bitter and vengeful, Meadow Flower desperately needed living water.

Meadow Flower faced a hard future. Society scorned her people. Her father was old and unwell, and her mother repeatedly abandoned the family. Picking crops with migrant people during the Great Depression, sleeping under the stars, and scavenging for food for her siblings forced nine-year-old Meadow Flower to become tough and self-reliant.

A social worker took the neglected children to an almshouse, where terrible conditions and excessive restrictions intensified Meadow Flower's fight for survival. By adulthood, Meadow Flower was weighed down with the baggage of deep poverty, violent anger, and an unhappy marriage. She would never amount to much—or would she?

The something amazing happened in Meadow Flower's dry, dusty soul. Living water—powerful, refreshing, and life-changing—revived her soul and gave her purpose. God used Meadow Flower's disappointments and disadvantages to equip her for the work He called her to do. Then Comes the Rain tells the true story of Meadow Flower's life.
