Read an Excerpt

Mrs. Georgia Bates sat in the back seat of the station wagon, eyeing the dirty ridges of February snow along the edges of Route 83 with distaste. Her son, Kenneth, was driving. Marlene, her daughter-in-law, sat in the front seat next to him. The flat midwestern farmland, still mostly white with the vestiges of the last storm, stretched to the horizon past both sides of the road. Once Georgia had liked to think about the earth lying beneath the snow as pregnant with hidden new life. But it had been decades since she cared to have such thoughts.

This is not a great mystery story. That said, it is a book which can lead to personal insights if you are open and willing to accept a good read that's throught provoking but not worthy of 5 stars.
