On Coronation night the ex-pat community in Hong Kong gathers for a celebration party, and 21-year-old Joy falls in love at first sight. She is engaged within 24 hours, but will not see her fiancé again for a year. Fifteen years later, when Sabine, her mother and grandmother are brought together, not only a deeply buried family secret is discovered, but also some fundamental truths: about the conflict between love and duty, about women's choices, and about mothers and daughters.weiterlesen
"There are plenty of fireworks among the three and the strong supporting cast as old secrets come to the surface in this absorbing family drama." (Publishers Weekly)
"The Irish setting and warmly described family relationships will appeal to fans of Maeve Binchy." (Library Journal)

I had heard "Me Before You" before this one and sadly have to account that "Sheltering Rain" is not nearwhere as gripping.
While Judith Boyd really tried to give each person a distinctive voice, I found her crying and wailing a little over the top.
Half of the book is written from the perspective of 16 year old Sabine and while that might be amusing at times, I found it rather boring and irritating after a while.
