The Big Wide Calm is a character driven, contemporary fiction novel that explores music, art, ambition, fame, love, and deep philosophical themes. The sophomore work by New England author Rich Marcello draws you in right from the cover, the intriguing title, and the first few pages. This is the second of three books that is part of the author’s trilogy on different kinds of love. The first, The Color of Home, was published in 2013 and the last of the three, The Beauty of the Fall, published in 2015.
