Robert Ormstedt was a lifelong storyteller and poet, who was also a gifted college athlete and singer. Writing fiction was his great avocation. Mr. Ormstedt passed away in 2006. This offering of One Summer’s Storm is his children’s final gift to their father.
"One Summer’s Storm" delves into an America reminiscent of "Our Town." Relentless rain, and a raging river mask the undercurrent of political corruption found in Robert Ormstedt’s debut novel. Marcus Stalley is an observant accountant – a character in the vein of Sherlock Holmes – who must root out government corruption while teaching his son the skills he will need to make his mark on the world.
