Set in the West during a horrific drought, The Rainmaker focuses on a girl whose family is equally worried about her lack of suitors as they are about the lack of rain. The family tries multiple schemes to marry their plain daughter off, but to no avail. That is, until a man who claims to be a “rainmaker” arrives. Intrigued by his melodic tones and theatrical speech, the family pays him $100 if he will create rain. The rainmaker uses his skills to woo the young girl, teaching her that she has had an inner beauty all along, and with the rain also arrives love.

About New Bern Now
Editor-in-Chief, Wendy Card, founded New Bern Now in April 2009. There were a number of reasons she developed the website. While stationed in Washington DC, she had 30 days to transfer to Naval Hospital Cherry Point and didn’t know much about the area. She was frustrated because there wasn’t a central location on the Internet for information about New Bern. Wendy retired from the Navy in Oct 2007. When our economy dived, she was trying to find her way in life and decided to give back to the community by creating a website that provided a “One Stop, Information Shop” to help people find out what’s happening in our community along with creating a free business listing to help business owners who couldn’t afford to advertise.
