Une photographe du Herald Tribune part réaliser un reportage sur la région du Témiscamingue, dont les forêts ont été ravagées par de gigantesques incendies au début du XXe siècle. Elle y trouve une communauté de marginaux fantasques et solitaires, dont Tom et Charlie, deux vieillards qui ont survécu à l'incendie et vivent en ermites au fond des bois. D'abord méfiants puis déterminés à aider la photographe dans son enquête, les deux hommes voient leur quotidien chamboulé. Et, soudain, lorsqu'arrive Marie-Desneige, octogénaire énigmatique tout juste échappée de sa maison de retraite, la vie, puis contre toute attente l'amour, reprend peu à peu ses droits. Superbe récit, lumineux et tendre, Il pleuvait des oiseaux nous entraîne au plus profond des forêts, là où le mot liberté prend tout son sens, et l'émotion, brute et vive, jaillit à chaque page.

From the time he was a boy in Georgia, LC Duncan, patriarch and leader of the Duncan clan, has battled racism. Even now that he and his family are truly successful, the racism can still be in-your-face.

Rio Duncan would say it's mistaken identity after being beat down in a nightclub by someone who thinks he's Roman Johnson, a stickup kid who happens to be Rio's doppelganger. What happens next will open up the biggest can of worms the Duncans have ever had to deal with. Get ready for another roller coaster ride with the Duncan family.

In his typical jaw-dropping fashion, Carl Weber returns with part two of his New York Times best-selling Family Business series. He's brought along a friend in best-selling author Treasure Hernandez, and together they've added more drama and new family members to the world of the Duncans. By day they are upstanding citizens running one of New York's most respected car dealerships; but by night, they're criminals who control most of the East Coast drug traffic. No matter whether they're on their day or night jobs, one thing is true about the Duncans: there is never a dull moment to be found. Momma drama takes over the Duncan clan, as there is still uncertainty about who has fathered the Duncan sisters' new babies. Meanwhile, Orlando Duncan, the family's new CEO and a man with his own baby momma problems, has just developed a new product that may make the millionaire Duncans into billionaires. Orlando only has one obstacle in front of him, and it's not law enforcement or one of his family's many rivals. It's his mother, and she may be his most formidable opponent to date, because she's making the family take sides. Can a civil war within the Duncan family be averted before it tears them apart?
