About the book:
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.

About the author:
"Of Stillness and Storm" is a completely engaging, emotional and though-provoking read that will leave you thinking about it long after you finish reading the last page. Michele writes in such a way that it is so easy to became wrapped up in the story so that it feels as if the reader is a part of the story. Lauren is facing dilemmas in her life as she believed that she and her family were living their dream, but now she is questioning their choices and the path their lives are on. As Lauren struggles living her daily life and then a person from her past becomes a part of her life again, this adds another element to her inner conflict. Lauren was easy to relate to and empathize with and I liked how Michele made her so real and really brought out her emotions and thoughts. This was an emotional book to read as I found myself thinking about what I would do if I was in her place and found myself analyzing what Lauren was thinking and choosing. I highly recommend this book and am looking forward to reading more by this author in the future.
