A charming fable about a seemingly ordinary life as Nora—burdened with regret—receives the extraordinary gift of trying out lives other than the one she’s living. A life-affirming story that will remind you of the classic film It’s A Wonderful Life.
Christine Nolfi answered a question about The Passing Storm:

Congratulations on winning the Sweet Lake giveaway--and thank you for entering the new Comfort of Secrets contest!
