The Gentle Rain From Heaven

Prahran Publishing | Published : 2019


Athena, an Australian nurse working overseas, is raped and murdered. Her father, John, must decide whether to grant clemency to her murderer facing execution by beheading. Margaret, an ex-school teacher on a career change as a junior Australian Government official, is sent in to counsel and assist the grieving man. When the situation proves predictably challenging, Margaret’s daughter, Nina, provides a clarity of counsel and assistance which is so irresistibly logical that it may well prove to be the most practical solution.
