Past Storm and Fire
by Christy Nicholas
Escape can embolden your soul – or destroy it.
Val and Karl’s house is destroyed by a hurricane and her husband reveals he can’t have children. These catalysts inspire her to write a historical romance novel set in Iceland, rife with sorcery, sexy Vikings, a big family, and a volcano. Val’s dreams reveal historical details she can’t possibly know, details which prove to be factual, which both frightens and intrigues her.
Her obsession with writing puts a strain on her already troubled marriage, but she’s terrified of being on her own. In her novel, Val becomes Vigdis.
Can she find vicarious solace and satisfaction in her fictional creation? Or will the escape take over and subsume her?
