Featured: The Passing Storm
A gripping, openhearted novel about family, reconciliation, and bringing closure to the secrets of the past.
Early into the tempestuous decade of her thirties, Rae Langdon struggles to work through a grief she never anticipated. With her father, Connor, she tends to their Ohio farm, a forty-acre spread that itself has enjoyed better days. As memories sweep through her, some too precious to bear, Rae gives shelter from a brutal winter to a teenager named Quinn Galecki.
Quinn has been thrown out by his parents, a couple too troubled to help steer the misunderstood boy through his own losses. Now Quinn has found a temporary home with the Langdons—and an unexpected kinship, because Rae, Quinn, and Connor share a past and understand one another’s pain. But its depths—and all its revelations and secrets—have yet to come to light. To finally move forward, Rae must confront them and also fight for Quinn, whose parents have other plans in mind for their son.
With forgiveness, love, and the spring thaw, there might be hope for a new season—a second chance Rae believed in her heart was gone forever.
From the Publisher:
The road to healing looks different for everyone, but there’s one thing that unites each journey: hope. In The Passing Storm, author Christine Nolfi illuminates how hope is an anchor that can see us through tragedy—and how sometimes we find it in the most unexpected of ways.
Rae Langdon, the heroine at the center of this soul-stirring novel, has dealt with her fair share of pain, but nothing could prepare Rae for the loss that has now come to define her. For Rae, life holds little promise. Then, she takes in a local teenager with troubles of his own. Rae and Quinn could never anticipate the unlikely bond they forge and the healing it brings. Nor could they know they’re bound by secrets that have long haunted Rae. As Rae’s and Quinn’s lives become deeply intertwined, Rae will have no choice but to face those secrets. This time, though, she may finally find the strength to put them behind her.
Christine Nolfi writes with such tenderness and heart, there’s no doubt you’ll feel all kinds of emotions while reading The Passing Storm. You’ll cry, yes, but your heart will also swell with gratitude and joy. Most of all, this story will leave you hopeful and believing brighter days are always ahead, no matter the road you travel. —Chris Werner, Editor
