DARE TO GAMBLE WITH DESTINY . . .
In this compelling and hauntingly vivid novel, Porzia Amard, an epicurean globetrotter, has left her French-Italian roots and her beloved wine making family behind in Tuscany to pursue her journalistic studies in the USA, eventually settling in Florida; Pensacola, to be exact, where hurricanes abound. And it is on the forceful tail end of one such hurricane that her life suddenly takes a mystical turn and the story begins.
When she unexpectedly inherits the legacy of unusual powers at her beloved grandmother’s deathbed, she embarks on an unforgettable journey of self-discovery. From the winding hills of Tuscany to the perilous landscape of South Australia and salt-scented beaches of western Florida, Porzia abandons the straightforward path after a past life regression introduces a distant soul mate, revealing a love so intense it has resisted the tarnishing of time.
Narrated in vibrant prose, infused with mouthwatering aromas of delicious recipes paired with inebriating wines Porzia’s life intertwines with mystical characters. She finds herself embroiled in a world of esoteric secrets and swept in a heated passion with famed off-road racer Gabe Miller. As they experience a love only few of us can imagine, let alone have ever savored, she finds herself believing Gabe to be her lost soul mate reincarnated. But complicating matters for the pair is Gabe’s elusive past and a promise, which lies at the heart of the book’s mystery.
This unique and extraordinary novel is an irresistible recipe for lovers of romance, wine, and the mystical realm. This book promises freedom from earthly boundaries; it blurs the lines between safety and the unconventional; between love and fear, between us and the gods.
Among the Cloud Dwellers is Book One of a trilogy, the Entrainment Series.
AMONG THE CLOUD DWELLERS REVIEWS/ ADVANCE PRAISE
“This is one helluva story– it resonates with a magic and mysticism that isn’t normally a feature of books that I opt to read, but even as the mystical parts confused my realism-craving reader’s soul, I still found myself pulled in. Sica clearly has a grip on sensual writing- from the tastes and smells described in deep detail to the tantalizing and passionate scenes of love, this is a most definitely a novel that employs one’s imagination along with all the senses. It calls for a suspension of disbelief, as well as perhaps a small inclination to entertain the previously unbelievable, in order to fully experience the ride. The ending left me wondering many things, so I’m happy to discover that this is simply the first book in a trilogy, and I look forward to finding where the journey leads to next!” –Dawn Mooney, Reviewer for Five Minutes for Books

“I was intrigued enough by the journey of love, discovery and travels for this young women to want to read it to end, only to discover that the journey for her was not over and wondering about the sequel (I want to find out). The friendship with Benedetta and mentor Evalena reminded me of the wonderful women I know in my life. How Porzia could make wonderful dishes from very little in her fridge was great (I should be so smart and creative). Her search for her soulmate, although at times frustrating, was again a reminder that we shouldn’t give up on finding happiness regardless of our past history.” –Cheri Bricker-Burnett/Artist
