Mother of Rain: A Novel

Mother of Rain: A Novel

(Mercer University Press)

“Beautifully drawn Appalachian characters, a strong sense of time and place, and a deeply important and universal theme: the interconnection of our actions and guilt (the patchwork quilt image). Like Blake, Zacharias deals with the complexity of the “fearful symmetry”, adding a profundity to her tale that gives it a superb richness.”

Weatherford Award for Best in Appalachian Fiction/ Appalachian Studies Association & Berea College.

“Zacharias does a wonderful job of capturing the speech of the Appalachian mountain people and their ways. Every word rings true – as a daughter of Appalachia myself, I recognize the authentic ring of the words and the tragedy that often hides in the folds of the mountains. This is Zacharias’ first novel and a fine debut it is, indeed.” read more
