Floods and Drought is, for me, a book about second chances and finding footing on solid ground. It is packed with emotion and Tim and Rory are good for each other - sometimes a little too good as Tim's usually optimistic nature is tested to its limits. After the time he served in prison, and even long before that, Rory has lacked self-confidence and Tim is good for him in that regard. Their contradictions make it work for them - and both of their stubborness is needed when they are tested when trouble starts brewing again. Greatly enjoyed coming back to visit the 'area' that started with Clouds and Rain.
Tim has, after three years, the chance to see Rory again after Rory's time in jail for stealing horses. He even talks his boss into hiring Rory to work for them again, Hunter agrees, the attraction is there, but will both of them have enough strength to weather the trouble that is brewing?
Part of an interconnected series of stories that started with Clouds and Rain and continued with Earth and Sky, although each can be read as stand alones.
Tim Conroy knows all about patience. He’s waited three years for Rory McCown to get out of jail after doing time for stealing horses from the Blue River Ranch. Now that Rory is eligible for parole, Tim makes it his goal to persuade his boss, Hunter Krause, to give Rory a second chance.
He almost regrets it when Hunter agrees. Rory is a morose loner one moment, then arrogant and overconfident the next. The attraction between them is still there, but as soon as they start to get close, an old enemy throws a wrench in the works… and their fledgling relationship may not be strong enough to weather the coming storm.
