This is a compelling story about two vulnerable people previously burned by love and thrown together by circumstance. Lara Williams delivers whole-heartedly with this one. The growth of the relationship between the characters is wonderfully portrayed. We see the loss and the gain, the sadness and the joy, and most of all the passion. Shelter from the Storm reminds us that not everyone has to go looking for love. For a lucky few. Love finds them.
