Description
Upon the break-up of his marriage, San Francisco lawyer Jason Dark returns to his late father's land, a stone home in the California wine region with a seventy-five-year-old vineyard grown over from neglect. While nursing the vines back to life, Jason begins to heal himself, opening up a law practice in the small town nearby, and reuniting with his wife and son, who come to live in the now thriving winery.

But in an instant his hard-won peace is put in jeopardy. Jason cannot rid himself of one habit which bespeaks a restless urge: his late night drives through the mountains. And one rainy night, driving recklessly on what should have been an abandoned road, he hits and kills a teenaged boy. The decision he makes -- to protect his family, his budding wine business and law practice -- changes the course of Jason Dark's life forever.

The Long Rain is a masterful piece of writing: carefully layered, told with grace and speed and power, a book that places an ordinary man in the most profound moral crisis and leaves the reader wondering "In that circumstance, what would I have done?"
