I am so excited to have a review from a wonderful blogger, Barbara Pyett. I have enjoyed her blog so much. I am reblogging her review of Winter Wish. I told her I was really happy that my book, set in a small. mountain town in Georgia, was read in Australia by a fellow blogger! Take a look. . . And check out her blog; you will love her posts like I do!
Dixie Minor’s Y/A book, ‘Winter Dream’, is set in the shadow of the north Georgia Mountains. The culture of a country town is reflected through the eyes of 18-year-old Jessie.
The loss of her mother at an early age permeates the story that encapsulates the uncertainties of youth.
Turmoil and dangers disrupt this peaceful town; combined with boy friend issues; suspense is maintained.
Jessie’s maturation is shown with her realization that she is not responsible for other people’s problems and happiness.
This book retains wholesome family values, without resorting to horror and terror. A welcome gift for any teenager. Dixie Minor is a fellow blogger and can be found at: http://www.dixieminor.wordpress.com
