The Winter People
A NovelPre-loaded Audiobook - 2014
West Hall, Vermont, has always been a place of strange disappearances and old legends. The most mysterious is that of Sara Harrison Shea, who, in 1908, was found dead in the field behind her house, just months after the tragic death of her daughter. Ruthie Washburne has never put much stock in West Hall's rumors. Having grown up in an isolated farmhouse with her mother, Alice, and her younger sister, she dreams of leaving her sleepy town and escaping her mother's odd insistence that they live off the grid. But when Ruthie wakes up one morning to find that Alice has vanished without a trace, she begins to wonder if her mother's eccentricities have a deeper reason -- especially when she finds a copy of Sara Harrison Shea's diary hidden beneath the floorboards of Alice's room. The diary tells the story of a mother on the edge, a mother who is willing to do the unthinkable in order to hold her daughter in her arms once again. And as Ruthie gets sucked deeper into the mystery of Sara's fate, she will discover that she's not the only one looking for someone lost -- nor is she the only person desperate to unlock the secrets that the diary contains. But she may be the only one who can stop history from repeating itself.
