Kathryn Hewitt, of Camden, will celebrate the release of her latest book Rain, with a book-signing at Books on Broad in downtown Camden.

This event will be held Nov. 15, from 4-6 p.m. Books on Broad is located at 944 Broad St. The event is free and open to the public. Books will be available for purchase.

It’s been said, "When it rains, it pours." For Ruth, that statement couldn’t ring more true. Rain continues the story of Ruth three and a half years after the miraculous event that changed her life forever in Hewitt’s first book, Snow.

When storm after storm brings pelting rain and raging winds into Ruth’s life, she gives up on ever regaining the innocence she’d once had. Blinded by depression and desperation, Ruth can’t see the shelters continuously being provided for her. Now, Ruth must find her way back and cling to the faith that saved her once before.

Because of Hewitt’s own experiences, including becoming a teenage mother at 15, she knows the values of life and the blessings it contains. Understanding the importance of making wise decisions, Hewitt passionately seeks to instill that wisdom into the mind of every young woman she encounters. The inspiration for her writings comes from her own experiences and she is never afraid to speak what she believes to be the truth.

Hewitt married in 2005 and is a stay at home with her four sons. She and her family live in Camden.
