Among the Cloud Dwellers. A sensuous magical novel.
The Magician and the Two of Cups.
The two cards danced in front of me...
My hand reached out. And in the darkness I rolled a set of dice.
Epicurean globetrotter, Porzia Amard, has left her French-Italian roots and her beloved wine-making family in Tuscany behind to pursue a career as a food and wine writer in the U.S., eventually settling in Florida; Pensacola, to be exact, where hurricanes abound. And in 1999—at the end of the millennium and before the rise of digital devices—on the forceful tail end of one particular hurricane her life suddenly takes a mystical turn. Beside her beloved grandmother’s deathbed, Porzia unexpectedly inherits a legacy of unusual powers, embarking her on an unforgettable journey of self-discovery.
After a past life regression introduces a distant soul mate, revealing a love so intense it has resisted the tarnishing of time, Porzia abandons the straightforward path and finds herself embroiled in a world of esoteric secrets. When she meets famed off-road racer Gabe Miller, Porzia is swept up in a fiery, impassioned affair, and as they experience a love only few of us can imagine, let alone have ever savored, she believes Gabe may be her lost soul mate reincarnated. But Gabe’s elusive past and a private promise which he is unable to reveal complicate matters.
From a hilltop village of Tuscany to the salt-scented beaches of western Florida, from the lush green hills of Oregon’s Willamette Valley to the perilous landscape of South Australia, Porzia’s journey promises freedom from earthly boundaries; it blurs the lines between safety and the unconventional, between love and fear, and between us and the gods.
