I truly enjoyed this book.
D.A. Kori Prier has a lovely writing style…it feels musical; melodic.
The book takes you on a journey where you will meet well-developed characters in scenes that are so detailed you can see them clearly in your mind. You will also be educated on the various aspects of storms and how they can cause an avalanche.
Ebbie McSwain and her teenage daughter, Shanna begin their fateful day when they set off on a road trip to Breckinridge, Colorado. It should have been a simple two hour drive, but the blizzard changed everything.
An ugly chain of events caused an avalanche leaving the mother and daughter entombed in their car, suspended above a 700 foot drop!
Ebbie had to draw on her science background and knowledge to keep them alive, all the while battling extreme anxiety due to her own personal fears and phobias; especially her serious fear of heights!
When she finally makes some headway and they can actually see light at the end of the tunnel, the unthinkable happens.
I don’t want to ruin it for you, you’ll have to read it yourself to find out what happens : ))

I liked this book on so many levels…where do I begin?
The book is about a couple who grew up in India, got married and then moved to the US. Once they have finally settled in, there is a crisis that affects all of India when the country separates in two, but this time it's not the Pakistanis and Indians fighting.
It’s a voyeuristic view into another culture. Through the engaging storyline, you will receive an education on India, the Indian culture and the difficulties that Indian immigrants face when they come to the US.
But…it’s much more than that. I took a lesson from this book. We are all stronger when unified. Trivial differences should not be allowed to grow into hatred; causing desires for borders and separation.
There is also a mystery element here. The author chooses to remain anonymous, signing off as “An Indian”..
