{More about Of Stillness and Storm}

Of Stillness and Storm (Thomas Nelson, December 2016)
“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 reengaging 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.

My Thoughts:

There aren't many books that surprise me, but this book did. I don't usually care for first person narratives, yet I became enthralled with the story and couldn't put the book down. Another surprise was how the book impacted me, and I'm still processing it. This is a book I know I will think about for a long while and it is also one I am sure I will re-read to be able to take it all in.
I loved that Michele used her background as a missionary kid to write a book that will not only speak to them, but those of us who spent summer's reading missionary books. This is really a book for anyone.
