I was excited to read, WINTER IN THE SOUL, as the title made me wonder if this book was about an eternal coldness of the soul or just about a winter that never ends. The answer is much simpler than that... Winter in the Soul is a place, a very dark place.

The main characters are 13-14 years old. The story feel more geared in the juvenile age range (8-12yrs) rather than the young adult genre (13-

An Entertaining Tale of Good versus Evil

Jennifer Novotney does a masterful job of describing the world she created in her debut novel, Winter In the Soul. Her rich descriptions of the sights, sounds, and smells of Spring Bloom, Summer Harvest, and Winter In the Soul give her readers a sense of being part of the story rather than simply observing it. “The sky was restless. Black and gray clouds moved at a moderate pace, exposing the dark sky and a few bright stars desperate to shine.”
