Of Stillness and Storm, by Michele Phoenix

It was supposed to be an exhilarating life---reaching primitive tribes in remote regions of Nepal.

While her husband hikes the Himalayas, Lauren and Ryan struggle alone. When an old flame resurfaces, will the family crumble?

Publisher's Description

Award-winning and highly acclaimed author, Michèle Phoenix, pens a story of marriage and missions, and what happens when they don’t always align.

"The Poisonwood Bible for a new generation." —Elizabeth Musser, author of The Long Highway Home

"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.

"In this fine novel, Phoenix realistically captures the deep struggles enveloping a missionary family." —Publishers Weekly

Editorial Reviews

'This novel juxtaposes sometimes dueling desires---fulfilling a ministry and meeting family needs---and shows the difficulty in striking a true course between them.'
'In this fine novel, Phoenix realistically captures the deep struggles enveloping a missionary family. '
'This book should be required reading for every wife and husband in the mission field . . . Readers will run through a gamut of emotions . . . This is a book that will take a reader out of their comfort zone but will also leave readers with thought-provoking questions long after reading. Well done!'
'Phoenix’s gutsy novel brings attention to the plight of missionaries’ kids broken by the sacrifices their families make to answer the call.'
