The Clouds Aren't White by Rachel Wright
About the Book:
Emmeline MacArthur is in the eye of the storm, a period of calm in the unstable life of political intrigue. As soon as the future looks clear, three shots from an old revolver shatter her precarious peace. In minutes Emmeline is plucked from picking dandelions with her daughter, Sophie, to standing next to the steel grave of her husband and his bullet ridden body.
In the months that pass, the assassin’s trail goes cold. Emmeline founders in a quiet depression, paralyzed by guilt and tormented by hazy nightmares. Grief leaves Emmeline adrift, barely able to be a mother. Tensions rise within the family and from without, culminating in Emmeline fleeing to Scotland, clinging to what she believes to be her husband’s last wish.
In the wilds of Scotland, Emmeline is confronted by more than she bargained for. The distance does nothing to alleviate her pain and Sophie becomes ever more distant and petulant. Emmeline stumbles through the process of grief, juggling work, motherhood, in-laws, and the notion of loving another man.
Emmeline MacArthur’s story is about love, the love which bonds a family, that compels a mother’s sacrifice, and the love which creates the framework of grief. The Clouds Aren’t White forces the question, what if the worst were to happen?
About the Author:
The Clouds Aren't White is my debut novel. I am a Colorado native with degrees in Political Science and History from Colorado Mesa University. I am a devoted tea drinker, Manchester United fan, wife, and mother. I live near Denver with my fantastic husband and daughter and very full bookshelves.
Much of my writing is drawn from life experience as a police wife, a life in politics, and the challenges of parenting. I am a writer of the human condition. Although this book has been glibly classified as women's fiction, I don't believe that death and loss and relationships are only issues that women deal with or that women want to read. We are all of us drawn to stories that help us understand our own lives.
