Miejsce wyd. na podst.: "The 4th Candorville collection by Darrin Bell"--Cover. Title from container. Torn between her husband's calling and her son's well-being, Lauren must find the stillness in the midst of life's greatest storm. It was supposed to be an exhilarating life--reaching primitive tribes in remote regions of Nepal. But after two years in Kathmandu, the calling that upended the Coventry family's world has galvanized Sam, while miring Lauren in isolation and disillusion. Their thirteen-year old son, Ryan, seems to be the ministry's greatest casualty, his vivacious personality eroded by losses and change. While Sam treks into the Himalayas for weeks at a time, Lauren and Ryan stay behind, experiencing a much less inspiring reality. The family's strong foundation begins to crack. Into the void enters Aidan, an extraordinary painter and friend Lauren hasn't heard from since a harrowing altercation twenty-two years before. Though their communication is only through on-line conversations, Lauren can't help the old emotions that are brought up with each relived memory, connecting her to the person she used to be. It is Ryan who finally brings the family to a point of crisis that forces Sam and Lauren to face the truths destroying them. Intimate and bold, Of Stillness and Storm weaves relational and spiritual dilemmas into a tale of resurrected love and honorable intentions gone awry.
