    Favorite so far

    This episode of Rising Storm knocked it out of the park! This time we finally meet the Daniels family. They have been background characters a couple times, but they take center stage in Weather the Storm. Bryce is the pastor of Storm, and his goal is to have the perfect family, the perfect life. Something the complete opposite of what he had growing up. But life doesn't always give us what we want, even if we work tirelessly for it. When Bryce's son is diagnosed with autism, he goes into a tailspin. There's no ranting or raving, just a complete denial of facts. He seems to think that if he pretends it doesn't exist, then it will just go away. Through this process of denial, he also starts to lose touch with the rest of his family, especially his wife. This episode was a little more down to earth and seemed like something a real family out there might actually be going through. There were some bits of drama surrounding their family, but it mostly focused on this family and how they tried to get through this life-altering news. It's also the first episode to sort of wrap up a story! Don't get scared, there's plenty more drama around the corner, but this was a nice little breather from all the high drama and big characters.

    3.5 Stars

    This episode focuses mainly on Tara, Bryce and their family. Though Dakota has a few great scenes as well. What I loved: • Dakota's scenes were written fantastically. She was in perfect form in this book... for Dakota, that is. • Some long awaited events are starting to unfold which is awesome. • Mondello wrote Tara and Bryce well. I could feel that what they were going through and how it was taking a toll on their relationship and themselves personally as well. • Also I enjoyed how this was dealt with. What I liked less: • This novella took me a while to read.. While overall it was good, I felt a lot of time was devoted to Tara and her mundane activities to get her mind off what she's dealing with. Personally, I didn't feel these activities needed to be written in as much detail as they were. I am very excited to read (what I believe is) the last episode of the series! It has been a totally unique series for me and I recommend it. ** I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review **

    An exceptionally good read!

    I cannot say I was particularly looking forward to this episode; we had only met Pastor Daniels’ family briefly before this, and I wasn’t sure if would be very interested, but then again I was not familiar with Ms. Mondello’s writing. Very early on morning, Patrick Murphy happens to see little Danny Daniels wandering all alone about the town square. Marisol Moreno sees them and rushes to the scene. Danny has recently been diagnosed with autism, and it’s wreaking havoc in the Daniels household. Pastor Bryce cannot accept his son’s condition because he keeps thinking about his own horrible childhood. While about town, Tara Daniels notices that Kristin, her sister-in-law, seems to be going to the pharmacy quite often. And Dakota, still dreaming of becoming Senator Rush’s future wife, realises something huge that might help her cause, one way or another… WEATHER THE STORM is one of the best episodes so far, thanks to Lisa Mondello’s beautiful and very sensitive writing. I became completely absorbed in the story from page one, and she even had me crying at Tara and Bryce’s story. My knowledge of autism is extremely limited, and I believe Ms. Mondello’s portrayal of the trials a family goes through is quite accurate. I also loved how the transition between the various dialogues was seamless. And in spite of her many shortcomings, and what she’s most likely about to do, I am still concerned about Dakota Alvarez’s safety… Episode 8 is going to be epic! WEATHER THE STORM is positively exceptional! I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
