Brody Rivers faces three obstacles: he's part Native in a bigoted town; there's been family violence and his father is in jail for murder; and he's inherited an eerie and unwelcome psychic "gift" from his addled grandmother. At sixteen, Brody takes over a rural grocery route and the advances from a lonely, married woman, Lizzy Baker, add to his burdens. He also feels a strange but undeniable connection with a young girl on his route, Tricia Porter.As a series of events torment him, Brody struggles to understand his ability as an empath. He's haunted by a vivid and recurring nightmare and his concern for Tricia's safety deepens. At the same time, his involvement with Lizzy threatens to destroy his life. When a January blizzard comes out of nowhere, so does the spirit of a woman who triggers a vague memory. The confrontation that erupts between the main characters is as intense as the storm that crippled Huron County during the winter of 1971.
