A Storm of Infinite Beauty by Julianne MacLean
Fiction, 300 pages
Published September 12, 2023 by Lake Union Publishing

From the bestselling author of Beyond the Moonlit Sea comes an atmospheric tale of how one woman’s search for the truth uncovers long-hidden secrets and rocks the very foundation of her world. 

Scarlett Fontaine is a true Hollywood legend―a singer, actress, and beloved fashion icon. But Scarlett dies tragically at just thirty-six years old, leaving behind no children. Or so the story goes… 

Gwen Hollingsworth is the curator at a museum dedicated to Scarlett’s life. She’s also sole heir to Scarlett’s fortune as a descendant of the star. But all is not well in Gwen’s world. She’s dealing with a messy marital separation and is struggling to move forward. So when Peter Miller, a biographer and photojournalist, comes to the museum with shocking claims about Scarlett―a life of exile in Alaska, a baby born in secret―Gwen’s whole world is turned upside down. Again . 

Determined to uncover the truth, Gwen and Peter set out for Alaska together but soon find themselves on a path toward something far deeper and more meaningful than either of them ever expected. A Storm of Infinite Beauty takes readers on a breathtaking journey from a lush vineyard in Nova Scotia to a rustic lodge in Alaska where old family secrets are revealed and the quest for true happiness begins.

My thoughts about A Storm of Infinite Beauty ~~

(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 line.)

First line—"Twenty-three minutes before the earthquake struck. Valerie McCarthy was on her way to deliver a letter."

I've read a couple of other books by this author and thoroughly enjoyed them. I was excited when I received a copy of A Storm of Infinite Beauty for review. I was not disappointed, this story was as good as her other ones were. 

Scarlett led a very private and secret life. When a shocking discovery is revealed about her past, Gwen and Peter are determined to get answers and search for those who knew her back then. Finding themselves in the beautiful lands of Alaska, they uncover the past and discover new truths about Scarlett. They learn more about themselves along the way as well. 

A Storm of Infinite Beauty is a well written, enjoyable read with very likable characters that I found myself totally immersed in. I truly did not want the story to end but loved the way that it did. Julianne MacLean will be an author that I will always want to read and I look forward to more of her stories. 

I received an ARC of A Storm of Infinite Beauty and this is my honest opinion.
