Publisher's Summary

Matt Kell and Cathy Spehn had known each other since grade school. As adults, they each married, lived in their hometown and attended the same church. Their kids attended school together. Matt died at home on Christmas Day after a three-year battle with cancer, leaving behind his wife, Gina, and two young boys.

Prior to his death, Matt recorded a video diary for his sons, which included his desire and expectations that their mom would love again. After attending Matt’s inspirational funeral and reaching out to Gina with offers of support, Cathy was diagnosed with inoperable brain cancer. She died only 17 days later, leaving behind her husband, Michael, and three young children. In her final hours, Cathy instructed Michael to “call Gina Kell.”

The Color of Rain illuminates the stepping-stones of loss and healing that ultimately led to a joyful new life for Michael, Gina and their five children. Their path to becoming a modern day Brady Bunch was filled with grief, laughter, and a willingness to be restored to a new and even better life, despite the inevitable resistance they faced.

As the dual first-person narrative reveals what it is like to walk through loss and love simultaneously, listeners receive an intimate look at how this ordinary group of people lived, died, and ultimately persevered through extraordinary circumstances.

    "Wonderful Story of Faith and Strength!"

    I just read this book and am now going through some of the same things, although not my husband or wife, but my neice and her husband (who has Glioblastoma - brain tumor). This book is totally helping me to get insight into what they are going through right now. Really great story. A great help to families going through the grips of cancer.
