Of Stillness and Storm By Michèle Phoenix Review


“I felt torn between two worlds. Each with its own mystery. One more captivating than the other, but the other more real and breathing.” 

It took Lauren and her husband ten years to achieve their dream—reaching primitive tribes in remote regions of Nepal. But while Sam treks into the Himalayas for weeks at a time, finding passion and purpose in his work among the needy, Lauren and Ryan stay behind, their daily reality more taxing than inspiring. For them, what started as a calling begins to feel like the family’s undoing. 

At the peak of her isolation and disillusion, a friend from Lauren’s past enters her life again. But as her communication with Aidan intensifies, so does the tension of coping with the present while re engaging with the past. It’s thirteen-year-old Ryan who most keenly bears the brunt of her distraction.

Intimate and bold, Of Stillness and Storm weaves profound dilemmas into a tale of troubled love and honorable intentions gone awry. 

I recevied a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review-   For me this book was not really a huge hit, I felt that it was just too mingled with a sad kind of drama.   I would have really like to read a more positive vibe in the author's tone.   The way the tones in language are used made me feel a bit uncomfortable at times.  This is really a book for adults as I would not really want any of my younger children or teens to read it.
