Nothing but the Rain, by Naomi Salman
The rain in Aloisville is deadly and unceasing. A single drop steals memories; get caught in a downpour and you could lose yourself entirely. Pragmatic, reclusive Laverne uses her journal to record her experiments with this precipitation and piece together her fragmented memories even as she gives up hope of rescue. The unsettling gaps in her recall and the enveloping terror of her isolation will have you reading this novella in a single sitting: it’s a propulsive, disquieting book that drums on the psyche relentlessly….as rain.
