Gwendolyn Crews has just moved to Cat's Valley desperate for a new beginning with her children, Kelsey (8) and Daniel (6). She hopes they will be able to move past the pain of the death of her husband and heal.
Alexander Christenson is trying to heal from his own pain and for blaming himself for an accident that has left him with much more than the physical scars he shows.
When a snowstorm brings Gwen and her children to Alexander's doorstep will they be able to start to begin to heal their respective past wounds and move forward or will it end up causing more hurt when the snow disappears and they go back to their respective lives?
This is one of the best books I have read this year. It is so emotional and yet through it all there is light and hope that we can heal and get past all of the difficult times.
There is no way writing a review can do this book justice so I apologize in advance as the emotions that you get from reading it are definitely more than words can portray.
Gwen was such an amazing mother but not only did she have to deal with the pain of losing her husband, she also lost a huge part of Kelsey. She had to work hard at getting their life back to a routine and keep Daniel happy while trying to bring Kelsey back.
Alexander had his own demons from his past that he couldn't stop blaming himself for. The understanding that Kelsey and Alexander had between them was so haunting and when they both came to terms with what the other was going through was the only thing that would allow them to face what they each blamed themselves for.
I absolutely loved the prayers of Kelsey and how they eventually changed and how you knew that a part of her really didn't want to be the way she was.
The ending was scary but truly beautiful how it allowed all of them to face all of their fears and come together in a healing manner that leaved you knowing there was hope and a future.
Absolutely incredible book!
