About the Book

Jordan Fell's passionate marriage is over. In pursuit of a new career, his wife, Leah’s, affection has grown cold and she has renounced the traditional role in her family life to embrace a new career with another man. Jordan takes leave to Asia, where his fidelity to his wife is compromised by the sensual east. The marriage is over by the time he returns home. While his children struggle with their loss, Jordan finds solace in alcohol. Then, on a trip to Paris, a song helps him escape the dragon of despair and he returns to sanity. After his ordeal where he escapes from the depths of estrangement, his spirit is lifted after he meets a woman of the mountains. After he unlocks her dark secret, he recovers the sovereignty of the Rain God.

 Reviewer's Comments

In The Estrangement of the Rain God, Michael Warren shows, with enviable skill, the structure of a close-knit and happy family. Then with the aid of subtle clues, hints and suggestions, we feel the foundations of his paradise are starting to crack and the light of love dims. In Warren’s carefully built up tension and conflict the drama builds like an approaching thundercloud. I believe this book will find a wide and avid reading audience.
