Synopsis

Clouds Like Horses by Stephanie Hart

First-time author Stephanie Hart shares an intimate, heartbreaking and often humorous journey of her remarkable life in Clouds Like Horses. The book is a series of dramatic vignettes told in economical yet rich prose with surprises that halt your breath, make you smile, and nod with empathy. The wide range of subjects and settings will appeal to both men and women readers of diverse backgrounds and ages. The author shares her experiences as the only Jewish girl in a Presbyterian boarding school. She introduces us to relatives heroic, talented, bumbling, cruel and simply tragic. Ms. Hart courageously reveals relationships that are a complex mixture of love and loathing, desire and fear. The book concludes with a realistically mixed outlook on life and a cautious optimism based on lessons both spiritual and pragmatic. Clouds Like Horses can be read straight through or as randomly selected stories. The book is beautifully enhanced with original artwork and well-preserved photographs of the author's family.
