The Estrangement of the Rain God chronicles the life of Jordan
Fell beginning with the collapse of his marriage. His ordeal continues
through a bout of alcoholism. It is a song that finally turned the despair
into acceptance. Physical activity and a reaffirmation of his core values
set Jordan back on the path of happiness. When he eventually meets another
woman, the terrors of the past have been vanquished and Jordan can
look forward to the future with confidence.
“The Rain God” is a nick name given to Jordan by his children after
a chance remark. However, the name is very fitting. Jordan’s spiritual center is closely tied
to the earthly elements, especially the river that runs past Jordan’s home. Jordan’s best friend is
part Seneca. His friend’s Indian traditions also influence Jordan’s thinking. This aspect gives
the book some unexpected twists and turns. It also provides a venue for some sound spiritual
advice from a unique point of view.
Along with the spiritual advice, this book contains some basic truths. Change is always
painful. You cannot have a long term meaningful relationship with another person if that person
only rides along on the coat tails of your passion. Friendships are valuable. The promise of love
is the essence of hope. The best cure for the loss of a woman is another woman.
The chronicles of Jordan Fell are fictitious, but this book paints an accurate picture of the
pain inflicted by a divorce. Jordan’s journey from happiness to despair and back is a familiar
one. The Estrangement of the Rain God could be just another story, but the spiritual gems and
the repeated affirmation of core values contained within the story line, elevate this book high
above the competition. A rewarding experience waits for those who read this book.
