Lola Parrish, a young woman fleeing her home in the marshes of Louisiana, tries to escape years of familial abuse. Suffering from panic attacks and dissociative tendencies, she enters the lively city of New Orleans, only to discover that she is bearing her father’s child. Her unconditional acceptance of her pregnancy fills her with a radiance that attracts others, including her landlords, their priest, her obstetrician and a special psychic. When her child, Grover, is born, it is revealed to her that he is an incarnation of divine Spirit, a “Keeper of the Flame.” Lola’s conflict erupts when she falls in love with her former doctor, and her father re-enters her life, creating a storm that culminates with Hurricane Katrina. Those who endure, with the aid of Grover’s mystical influence, witness a greater truth about their “Angel in the Storm.” Clement Binnings, Jr., is a family physician who put pen to paper in response to the devastating events surrounding Hurricane Katrina. His next book, The Bubble Rule to Spiritual Vision, was inspired by the insanity of 9/11. He writes, he says, because he feels compelled to emphasize the contrast between soul reality (sanity) and human reality (insanity) in today’s world. “It is my belief that we are all ‘schizophrenics’-not in the clinical sense, but in a spiritual sense-believing ourselves to be that which we are not.” Born in New Orleans, Louisiana, Binnings currently makes his home in Roanoke, Virginia, in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains.
