Matt Kell and Cathy Spehn had known each other since grade school. As adults, they each married, lived in their hometown and attended the same church. Their kids attended school together. Matt died at home on Christmas Day after a three-year battle with cancer, leaving behind his wife, Gina, and two young boys. Prior to his death, Matt recorded a video diary for his sons, which included his desire and expectations that their mom would love again. After attending Matt’s inspirational funeral and reaching out to Gina with offers of support, Cathy was diagnosed with inoperable brain cancer. She died only seventeen days later, leaving behind her husband, Michael, and three young children. In her final hours, Cathy instructed Michael to ‘call Gina Kell.’ The Color of Rain illuminates the stepping-stones of loss and healing that ultimately led to a joyful new life for Michael, Gina and their five children. Their path to becoming a modern day Brady Bunch was filled with grief, laughter, and a willingness to be restored to a new and even better life, despite the inevitable resistance they faced. As the dual first-person narrative reveals what it is like to walk through loss and love simultaneously, readers receive an intimate look at how this ordinary group of people lived, died, and ultimately persevered through extraordinary circumstances.

    " I have never read a book that broke my heart in a million pieces then put it back together again better than it was before. A beautiful story "

    " I'm a Michigan native, so the setting of this novel alone grabbed me. The story line was equally capturing. This is the true story of 2 couples, torn apart from their spouses by two separate tragedies, who ultimately find one another and find love again. It's wonderfully written from the perspective of both surviving spouses. Not only is it a wonderful story (though tear-jerking...make sure your tissues are nearby!), it's a wonderful lesson in how to help someone through grief. It gave me some perspective into what grief is like and what is helpful and what isn't when you're trying to say and do the "right thing." The story doesn't sugar coat the agony of losing someone you love, but shows how God helps us through it and in the end, how He has us in his loving, caring hand through life's most difficult circumstances. "
