Read in January, 2009

Slow pacing and a richly described setting (Northern Maine in the winter)combine to create a well written story about a girl searching for her father. Genesis is 17 the winter her father goes missing. He ventures out on Moosehead lake and never returns. The lake freezes over before his body is found, and a long season of waiting begins. Without a body to prove his death rumors begin to fly, and Genesis begins to question who her father was and in the process begins to learn more about who she is. Give this to readers to like their stories with a strong sense of place for Maine is as much as a character in the story as Genesis and her family are. Perfect for the season-it begs to be read with a cup of hot chocolate in hand.
