Read an excerpt

It shouldn’t have been dark. But it almost was, with the storm so close about the town. Later, as I searched my memory for all the details of that day, I realized how unusually dark it had been.

It was a few days before Christmas, and I was driving through the mountain passes to our family’s cabin. The forecast had called for overcast skies and an inch or two of snow, but as I came over the last rise above the scenic valley, an unexpected sight met my eyes: a thick body of clouds, a dark, nearly black storm centered over the town.
