This real-life Brady Bunch story is about what it means to endure the unthinkable--and still open one's heart to what's next. When two childhood friends die of cancer six weeks apart, the shared experience of loss brings their grieving spouses together. After months of late-night phone calls, family dinners, and countless dreams and tears, this unlikely pair builds a trust, a love, and a shared life. Told from alternating points of view, The Color of Rain illuminates the stepping-stones of healing that lead to a joyful new beginning for Michael and Gina Spehn and their five children. Like many who grieve, Michael and Gina had to choose to hope again. Along the way, they discovered that God can restore the darkest circumstances--and even from death, He can bring new life. Michael and Gina's gripping story of "growing new hearts" will inspire readers not only to survive loss but also to receive the new courage, faith, and identity that God gives in the midst of tragedy.
