When It Feels Like The World Is Against Her, She Has To Believe In Love.

Rachael is sure of one thing. Someday, someone will love her, and then she’ll become beautiful.

Even meeting her best friend, who tries to save her from abuse at home and at school, isn’t enough. No matter how strong she is, she’s held back by insecurity. Until one day, she meets Moshe: handsome, kind, and treats her like a princess.

Will their romance blossom, or will her self doubt keep her from happiness?

Content Notes

Skies Are Blue is a series about empowerment just as much as it’s a series about trauma. These stories are heartwarming and heart-wrenching, as each follows an individual through their own internal and external struggles.

Clouds From Heaven takes many inspirations from my own experiences growing up. For this reason, the characters and their struggles are very close to my heart. I started writing it in 2000, and it has gone through many iterations since then.

At least one character in this work uses gender-neutral pronouns. Here is a guide to the usage of these words. You can find this guide in the author’s notes in relevant episodes.

Male | Female | Gender-neutral

He | She | They or Ze or It

Him | Her | Them or Zir or It

His | Hers | Theirs or Zirs or Its


  • He/She/They/Ze/It went to the store.
