Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Lost and alone...down the rabbit hole.

Years have passed since Alice lost her mother to cancer, but time hasn't quite healed the wound. Alice copes the best she can by writing her music, losing herself in her love for her boyfriend, and distancing herself from her father and his new wife.

But when a deadly snowstorm traps Alice with her stepmother and newborn half sister, she'll face issues she's been avoiding for too long. As Alice looks to the heavens for guidance, she discovers something wonderful.

Perhaps she's not so alone after all....

Review:

"Genuine emotion....[T]he accessibility and heartache will attract many readers." Kirkus Reviews

Synopsis:

The author of "I Heart You, You Haunt Me" delivers an emotionally charged tale of family, loss, and love poignantly told through verse.
