The Winter People
by Jennifer McMahon



West Hall, Vermont, has always been a town 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, Gertie. Now, in present day, nineteen-year-old Ruthie lives in Sara's farmhouse with her mother, Alice, and her younger sister, Fawn. Alice has always insisted that they live off the grid, a decision that suddenly proves perilous when Ruthie wakes up one morning to find that Alice has vanished without a trace. Searching for clues, she is startled to find a copy of Sara Harrison Shea's diary hidden beneath the floorboards of her mother's bedroom. As Ruthie gets sucked deeper into the mystery of Sara's fate, she discovers that she's not the only person who's desperately looking for someone that they've lost. But she may be the only one who can stop history from repeating itself.


I gave this book a 5 Star Rating

I devoured this book once I stared just could not put it down, very quick and satisfying read. Jennifer McMahon is a amazing author.

The book was cleverly put forth into a story of a series of journal entries. All showing how a parent can have such deep and unconditional love for their child and do the most do the unspeakable things for that love. The story line jumps back and forth through a time frame of 1908 to the present day. The book can be a little creepy at times to read. Almost like reading a Stephen King book.
