Blackberry Winter by Sarah Jio

September 25, 2012

From the moment I started reading this book I couldn't put it down. Reading it within 1 day, I was amazed at how Sarah brings you into the storyline and the characters.

In May of 1933 during a freak snowstorm, Vera Ray came home early one morning after working and discovered that her 3 year old child, Daniel, went missing. While some people say he ran away, she knew that they were wrong, and rather he was taken. She takes it upon herself and does what she can as a determined mother to find her child. However, being poor at that time period didn't help. The police took no interest in her or what she had to say.

77 years later during another snowstorm in May, Claire, a newspaper reporter, stumbles upon the story of the missing boy and is determined to give his story an ending. Having lost her baby herself, she felt for the mother and wanted to finish her story for her. The book goes from past to present, which allows the reader the full story of Vera and her missing son, as well as Claire's search for the truth about him.

This was an amazing book that I will be buying to add to my bookshelf. Sarah is a phenomenal writer and I look forward to reading her next book!
