Does Tragedy Have A Silver Lining?

But when Amber enters her life, becoming both a love rival and good friend, things don’t seem quite right. Kristen leans on an adult for comfort who seems a bit too interested in her.

This stubborn and spoiled girl has a lot to learn about life…and death.

Content Notes

Skies Are Blue is a series about employment 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.

When I started writing this series over 20 years ago, I was processing my own trauma and wanted explore the different methods people use to process theirs. Since then, the stories have gone through many iterations, and the characters and world have blossomed. I hope you enjoy Rain Does Fall, a story that is very close to my heart.
