Check It Out: Tell the Rain Goodbye

Tell the Rain Goodbye by Jacqueline L. Sullivan
Zombie Short Story Collection

For the last couple of years I’ve been convinced I was being extremely noble dragging around my special load of guilt and sorrow. I mean, I thought I was the only person in the world who hurt so much. After listening to Lanie, I knew that, in fact, I was pretty much full of my own special kind of crap.

What could a troubled sixteen-year-old and an aging, homeless television actress, now living in her decaying Mercedes, possibly have in common? Plenty as it turns out. Tracy Cooper finds her life begins to change in ways she never could have imagined after a chance meeting with Alana “Lanie” Milner, once one of television’s most beloved stars. Tracy soon finds herself caught up in the heartbreaking life on the street. The experience becomes a defining one for her, and she uses her camera to record Lanie’s life and the experiences of the homeless women she meets. In the process, she learns to deal with loss and the value of letting go, and she realizes that being a family is more about love and acceptance than about blood.

5 out of 5 fairies

Tell the Rain Goodbye is a story whose waters run deep. A teenage girl, a life that has been thrown into chaos, and a journey about to start that will lead her to see things she has never imagined. Using her talent with a camera, Tracy begins to tell stories other than her own. I must admit, I teared up a few times reading this. What appeared to start as a simple story turned into so much more. Not a long read, but a powerful one nonetheless.
