A Cruel Calm

What was love like in the era before annulments, reliable contraceptives and acceptance of homosexuality? A CRUEL CALM, Paris Between the Wars visits an era of idealism and innovation on all levels when Paris was the cultural capital of the Western World. Politics, religion, social mores and a special time in history (1927-1939) determine the fate of a young Catholic socialite from Washington, DC as she tries to find out if it is only after great sorrow that love can come again. Well researched, A CRUEL CALM includes Lindbergh's flight across the Atlantic and the huge crowds that awaited him at Le Bouget Aeroport; Gertrude Stein, James Joyce, Joseph Campbell and Hemingway in their own words; the Surrealist movement; lady pilots Bessie Coleman and Amelia Earhart; a train ride to Reno; Black Thursday; the ravages from the Great War, omens of a new war brewing, and much more. This is a story replete with historical detail, universal conflict, and sensational romance and could easily be adapted as a screenplay.
