“Once again, Author Connie Chappell brings her characters to life with the brushstrokes of her prolific imagination in this psychological family saga seasoned with romance, mystery, and humor, about four descendants of an international business tycoon and their quest for life’s answers.”
The four grown children of Artemus Deconcini spend their summer at Moorings, the family’s Maryland estate, while he spends the season abroad. Nevertheless, his presence is felt.
Jillian is brokenhearted again. Another man raced off in pursuit of his lifelong dream. Moorings’ tower room acts as her sanctuary. With mementos from this lost love, she creates uniquely expressive wall art and finds determination to launch a dream of her own. Gus covets his privacy shield. He attempts to hide an amorous relationship gone recklessly off the rails. Betsy, dear self-absorbed Betsy, arrives with mother-in-law troubles, soon to be exchanged for a female empowerment lesson. Demetri faces recurring nightmares wrapped around Moorings. Or are they wrapped around his powerful father? Or will they unwrap the sins of his powerful father?
Every Cloud focuses on life’s complications, the spirit of family—drama and all—and justly deserved silver linings.
