This was my first book by Christine Nolfi, and I found her writing to be captivating! She writes with such amazing emotion; you can’t help but become invested in the characters and the story!
The Passing Storm introduces the reader to Rae, a mother trying to cope after the unimaginable loss of her daughter. As Rae tries to heal and move forward in some fashion, we watch her work through her grief. She takes a chance on a young teen who needs help, and through him, we hope she can find forgiveness.
Charles Martin has this beautiful writing style that draws the reader in immediately. I enjoyed every word in this book because of his prose.
How I Felt:
Murph, the main character, was heartbreaking and raw with emotion, and yet he finds it in himself to overcome those feelings to help others every time he can. He comes across a multitude of characters on his journey and they are all wonderfully built and add so much to the story.
