After the storm come the rainbows.
Retired and widowed Gloriana Jones is forging on with the plans she and her late husband dreamed of—bringing joy and happiness, one ice cream cone at a time, to Lake Unami. But bad weather is drowning her dream. A trip to Upstate NY is bittersweet for Nathan James. He is excited to see his first granddaughter but without his wife he’s lonely. When his car breaks down, he heads to the only light he can see, an ice cream shop. With aid from a heavenly source, electricity sparks, but will the two weather the summer storms and find love a second time? Or will their hopes and dreams melt away?
Soon they were talking like old friends, and an hour later, Nathan James was enthralled with Gloriana Jones. When she told him about losing her husband, Frank, to a heart attack, he rubbed a hand across his mouth. “I lost my wife too.”
“I’m so sorry, Nathan.” She reached across the table where they now sat. “Though I wondered why you were traveling alone to see your grandchild.”
“Rachel was beautiful, vibrant, and kept me in line.” He couldn’t help the smile. “I tend to be a workaholic.” He choked up. “That was why I didn’t realize how sick she was.”
A little while later, the lights flickered and came back on. Freezers and fridges hummed to life. Gloriana breathed a sigh of relief. “Thank God. Last time it was out for almost two days.”
On the other side of the window, the sun peeked through the clouds, and only light rain fell. “Come on.” She jumped up and grabbed his hand. “Let’s see if we can find your rainbow.”
Nathan laughed like he hadn’t in years as she hauled him through the drizzle, down the boardwalk, and out onto a dock. Near the end, they stopped, and both scanned the sky.
“There it is.” She pointed. “There’s your rainbow.”
“It’s a double.” Nathan stared up at the two colorful arches. They seemed like a reminder that life didn’t end with the loss of a spouse.
