A great blizzard blew incessantly, yet Larry decided to head home rather than sleep on the First-Aid Room cot. Outside, roads became impassable and across the street was a world away. A nationwide electricity shutdown had people going to the nearest stores to buy kerosene. But why, in the middle of this heavy snowstorm, did the provincial police threaten to shoot those approaching the hardware store? The unpredicted end of the story will surprise readers.
If Winter Comes will be featured in the Illinois Library Association Book Exhibit in Chicago, Illinois, which will run September 29-30, 2010. For more information, log on to Xlibris.com.
