The Legend in the Cloud is a romantic tragedy. It is primarily based on the Island of Sao Miguel, in the Azores. The small village it takes place in, is in the bottom of a volcanic crater. Its name is Sete Cidades. The ancient legend that I mention is well known on the island. My characters mirror the legend. We can’t have true love without true sacrifice. The heroine is a young college student on summer vacation, trying to figure out her life and her future. She is emotionally troubled from losing her mother at an early age. In the process of meeting an unexpected love, she finds her own strength. Her life becomes simple. But being a tragedy, she soon realizes that she has to become more than the selfish child she has always been. She has to live for someone else. I have tried to entwine humor among what I hope is deemed an emotional roller coaster. The story is focused on the heroine, as she grows into the woman that she was always supposed to be. The story has both an inspirational and slight religious message. The religious message isn't overpowering. It is there as a small anchor to try and except the realities that life give us. There is romance, but without any descriptive scenes, simply the implication of sex. Nor is there any language, other than the word jackass. I would be comfortable recommending it to high school age girls. I suppose, it would be best described as chick lit, but with emotional tragedies to bring the tears. This novel is 54,000 words.
