Episode 11: Stormfront
By Debbie Macomber
We get some mighty big storms in the Pacific Northwest. Thunder, lightning and rainfall that would do Noah proud. Thankfully, these storms are the exception and fairly uncommon. When they happen we're all reminded to be grateful for the sunshine.
Storms come into our lives as well and we aren't likely to escape them, either. Disagreements, misunderstandings, conflicts, betrayals and heartache. No one is immune. Certainly, I've lived long enough to experience my fair share. Nothing is wasted in a writer's life and so, my friends, you'll need to forgive me for making my characters suffer.
At a recent press interview I was asked to describe the Cedar Cove series. I explained that Cedar Cove is a slice of life, of real life. While there are days when we can laugh and chase butterflies in the sunshine, there are other days we tremble as the winds of circumstance and consequence batter us until we're convinced all is lost. If we are fortunate enough to find shelter we'll survive. As it stands now Olivia and Jack, Grace and Cliff, Maryellen and John, Justine and Seth, are all left standing in the midst of the storm...
But wait...there's more to come.
