Of Stillness and Storm by Michele Phoenix

Little description:“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: 4 stars out of 5

Good read… but the book left stale feeling especially with the ending. A story of the missionaries and their kids, how they struggle because someone else’s vision… A tough story, broken relationships…

Two people stuck in their little isolated world, one empowered and passionate about what he was doing, and very sad and angry wife withe the kid who grew up to be very angry and dull…. Tough attitudes, hard visions…
