For booklovers, every so often, if you’re lucky, you find a gold nugget. That’s exactly what I found when I started reading this book by Helen Foster Reed. It’s the pen name three writers–Helen Myers, Gail Reed and June Foster–chose. The writing is achingly beautiful and the story is as rich as a five course meal. A monstrous winter storm is bearing down on five women who are huddling together like a flock of sparrows, hoping, praying they’ll survive yet one more hurdle life has thrown their way. They’ve already been through a lot. The grief of some is old while other’s is fresh. All are struggling to move on in the best way they know. Conflict between the different personalities, harbored resentments, and secrets revealed make this a book you can’t put down. And in the midst of the chaos happening both with the weather and inside them, they discover commonalities. They come to see that they’re more alike than they are different and that forges a lasting bond. Give this book a try and let this gripping story bring you many hours of reading pleasure.

Five widows and the storm of the century…
Just in time to wreak havoc for Thanksgiving, a monster storm from the Arctic blasts south freezing much of the United States. In East Texas, dire weather warnings brings together a unique group of women, all struggling with new and older grief, as well as a host of life issues.
Retta—determinedly fighting to keep her ancestral farm going, while nature, her children, and time were showing her that a need for change was inevitable.
Maggie—Retta’s lifelong friend, whose multiple marriages and lust for life constantly leaves her the talk of the community.
Sybil—after single-handedly dragging her family out of poverty to become one of her church’s most respected women, she finds herself facing the biggest challenge of her life.
Dana—a promising musical career took an unexpected turn when she fell for a tough soldier. But one too many deployments took its toll on their happiness and, now, her future.
Carly—a girl from the wrong side of town, she married a man old enough to be her father, which turned her into the richest woman around. But is she the gold-digger many believe her to be?
In the end, only part of the drama is outdoors. Hour by hour emotional and psychological upheaval grows, as secrets are revealed, until all are forced to understand that sometimes friendship and love needs to be risked in order to reach life’s richest plateaus.
