Goddess of The Rainbow

Goddess of the Rainbow – By Patrick Brigham

Short Description

Is it about the peripatetic Iris, who works for DHL, and makes deliveries around town? Or is it about the rain which disrupts peoples lives, and steers them into areas which they prefer to ignore. Disaster caused by flooding is all too familier these days, but faced with its indomitable presence, how do people cope, and how do their lives change? Set in Northern Greece, Goddess of The Rainbow, is a story about how people deal with such a disastrous flood, and about how they live their lives, in the provincial town of Orestiada. The catalyst is Iris, she interacts between the various people, and helps to connect individual tales, which occasionally collide with one another, as the story progresses. Love, humour and angst abound, including the story of Iris’s own broken heart, and the eventual return of her childhood sweetheart. There are criminals, spies, and crooked arms dealers, and one tale even includes a priest who has lost his faith. But more importantly, it is the story of people whose lives are in disarray, who are clinging on to what they understand. The question is, what happens when the rain stops?
