Happy Release Day!!

The Passing Storm!

The Passing Storm by Christine Nolfi
Women's Fiction, 317 pages
Published November 1, 2021 by Lake Union Publishing

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.

My thoughts about The Passing Storm ~~

(I love to note the first lines of the books I'm reading. First lines can really grab a reader's attention and I love seeing where the author takes the reader after their first lines.)

First lines—"He never worked during school hours. Yet there he was inside the bustling craft emporium, stocking shelves near the front."

This is a story that will stay with me a long, long time! I couldn't stop thinking about all of the characters after I closed the pages of this book. The Passing Storm is an intricately woven story about the complicated past meeting the tumultuous present, settling into a new future. 

All of the characters, and I mean all of them, really had some serious issues to work through. Watching them struggle through them endeared me to them and I felt everything they did. I loved everything about this story, even the hard parts. 

I've read quite a few of Christine's books and this has now become one of my favorites, for it's great characters and the depth of feelings that she invoked in me. I highly recommend The Passing Storm and I know that you will fall in love with it too. 

Thank you to Christine Nolfi and NetGalley for the ARC of The Passing Storm. This is my honest opinion of the book.

About the author

Christine Nolfi

Some writers are gifted with an unusual life and I’m certainly one of those. I’ve lived in Ohio, Virginia, California, Utah and now South Carolina. In college I was featured on the front page of the Houston Post for a lark that erased all my debt. I met my four adopted children for the first time in the sweltering heat of the tropics. I helped build several companies and was lucky enough to earn a living doing what I love best–writing–in a PR firm I owned.

In 2004 I made the wisest and most irrational decision of my life–I began writing fiction full-time. All those years of hard work pay off daily in sweet notes and comments by readers. Please continue the mail, tweets and comments on FaceBook, GoodReads and other sites. I cherish your support and love chatting with readers. ~ Goodreads
