Betty Hutton -- In the snow forest -- Menno's granddaughter.
Set in late fall when blizzards threaten, each novella is about people who have reached the age where everything is for keeps. A recently paroled former con steals a car and attempts to outrun a violent past. An out-of-work logger finds love can both sustain and destroy. A woman's journey by rail in the snowscape of Wyoming becomes a tale of discovery and hard-won redemption.
