About the Book:
Set in 1955, this final installment in Taylor’s best-selling Scranton Trilogy explores a family’s legacy of loss and a sometimes mystical vision of a better tomorrow. Fifty-year-old Violet has had a good life. The love of an honest man. The joys of motherhood. Yet, even in 1955, her heart still aches over the death of her sister more than four decades earlier. Rain Breaks No Bones is the final novel in Barbara J. Taylor’s Scranton Trilogy, starting with Sing in the Morning, Cry at Night, followed by All Waiting Is Long. Though the novels are connected, they each stand alone.

About the Author
Born and raised in Scranton, PA, Barbara J. Taylor sets her novels in the hometown she loves and fills them with miners, evangelists, vaudevillians, nuns, gangsters, prostitutes, widows, musicians, dreamers, and a seer or two. Before becoming a full-time writer, Taylor taught English in the Pocono Mountain School District where she encouraged her students to read great works and create their own. In the latter part of her teaching career, she earned her MFA in creative writing from Wilkes University.
