The Storm is a novel about four intriguing lives and a cast of characters entwined
in their stories. The Storm encompasses Paris during The French Revolution
leading to the 20th century and covering Rome’s opera scenes, and Hollywood’s film studios in their Golden Era.
Marie Savoie, reborn in the 20th century, a reincarnation of Princess Marie Louise Lamballe. She was First Lady in Waiting to Marie Antoinette and first to be executed in the French Revolution because she refused to abandon the King and Queen. Reincarnated in Paris she would go on to become the foremost leading actress in France in the 1950’s.
Tristan Taylor, Americas sensitive, soft spoken heart throb. A Broadway star who went on to stardom using “bel canto” opera technique as well as pop. His destiny was falling in love with Marie Savoie, the kind of wild, stormy and passionate love only a few ever share in life.
Jean Delacroix, by far the wealthiest man in France. His ancestry going back to Napoleon Bonaparte who gave his family the sole rights to produce all military weapons. He was egotistical, sadistic, and took anything in life he desired by coercion or force. Upon meeting Marie-Savoie he fell hopelessly in love and would do anything in his power to claim her, to own her, body and soul.
Vanessa Daniels, Hollywood’s most beautiful and famous actress of the 1950’s. She was born with the gift of seeing into the future. She seduced a teenage Tristan and was his first love, a love that turned to eternal friendship and admiration.
