A Love Story
"What you seek is seeking you."
An enticing tale of the unpredictable power of love…
This irresistible debut novel dances off with your heart while lighting the way to love. At once insightful and humorous, it's the story of Maggie Chisholm, a therapist who's good at overhauling everyone's psyche but her own...until she loses her balance after a hundred-year flood ravages the picturesque town of Sedona, Arizona. Damage to the beautiful home she shares with her husband leads to an encounter with Finn, a local contractor, outdoorsman and self-avowed bachelor. Captivated by Maggie despite his highly guarded heart, Finn can't resist the magnetic connection any more than Maggie can.
Never mind her longings for a soul mate, there's been enough turbulence in Maggie's life; she doesn't need to weather any more. Nor does Finn, whose resistance to involvement isn't without cause. Even so, their unfolding relationship evolves into an all-consuming love, as passionate as it is precarious. A threat to their safety, Maggie's alcoholic husband, Martin, mustn't know of her plans to escape her hellish marriage, or another disaster could ensue. But Martin's not the only problem.
Riding the rapids of their desire—as told from Maggie and Finn's separate points of view—their story surges toward a series of unexpected events. While Finn's life veers out of control, Maggie's abusive marriage reaches a crescendo, and dreams are blurred by reality, their love bedeviled by fear. Now Maggie must overhaul her own psyche before regaining her balance…with the love of her life.
More than a romance for discerning readers, Natural Disasters is an undaunted journey toward self-discovery. Full of mirth and messages, it invites you to explore the pathway to the fulfillment of your heart.

Natural Disasters, A Love Story is an in-depth, exquisite work of literary fiction…and it deserves to be read unhurriedly; it is full of intriguing ideas that prompt readers to evaluate their own lives….it is also a powerful, graphically passionate narrative: haunting, memorable and, in the end, both surprising and satisfying. Cleverly written from both Maggie’s and Finn’s points of view…a superb love story.

Natural Disasters is a thought-provoking read that drew me in from the first paragraph...a captivating tale about love: past love, new loves, self-love. Many married adults find themselves in these types of unforeseen circumstances, and I loved that it wasn’t based on a group of twenty-somethings, but actually seasoned, experienced adults…Well-written, full of twists, and I liked that it was told from both characters’ viewpoints.

It’s always wonderful to see romance novels where protagonists are significantly older than your standard fresh out of college kids. Maggie is written in such a compelling, relatable way, stuck in her life in much the way that many women are, and the fact that it takes an epic natural disaster to shake her awake is both ironic and amusing….G.F. Cantrell has done a wonderful job, and I can’t recommend Natural Disasters, A Love Story enough to romance fans.
