My client, Normandie Fischer, has published Heavy Weather, a Carolina coast novel. I can testify that it’s a good read because I edited it, and you know how picky I am. Normandie is a skilled writer and she tells a gripping tale with very real characters that I ended up caring about. A summary from Goodreads:
Death, life, family, domestic abuse--Heavy Weather explores all these themes in a memorable and compelling narrative. When Annie Mac's life explodes like a storm at sea, she is helpless to fight back. Left for dead, her two children targeted by her abuser, her life appears to be over. The people who help her show her how to weather a storm that she cannot control.
Here’s the description from Amazon, where it’s available in print and Kindle formats:
It takes a town to save a child. That town is Beaufort, North Carolina.
Annie Mac’s estranged husband vows that nothing will stop him from getting his baby girl. Not Annie Mac and certainly not that boy of hers.
Only four blocks away, Hannah Morgan lives in comfort with her husband and dog, making pottery and waiting for her best friend to come home. When she discovers the two children cowering in the bushes and their mama left for dead, it doesn’t take her long to set her coterie of do-gooders to some extra-strength do-gooding. Add in Clay, a lonely police lieutenant yanked out of his comfort zone and into the heart of this small family, and who knows what will happen?
I urge you to give it a look.
For what it’s worth.
