"Joe's gone. Don't ask me where, for I'm not knowing. He'll nevermore be back," she said.
Whiter Than Snow by Sandra Dallas - Hardcover, March 30, 2010.

Whiter Than Snow

Book description: In 1920, Swandyke - a small town near Colorado's Tenmile Range - is changed forever. Just moments after four o'clock, a large split of snow separates from Jubilee Mountain high above the tiny hamlet and hurtles down the rocky slope, enveloping everything in its path. Meet the residents whose lives the tragedy touches.

A quintessential American voice and a writer of exquisite historical detail, Sandra Dallas illuminates the resilience of the human spirit in her newest novel.

My first adult book was a western, a novel called Mary Dove that I picked up for a dime at a yard sale. I've been reading great reviews for Whiter Than Snow and would like a chance to see if I can still fall in love with a western some thirty years later.

p.s. Have you read Kirino's novel "Out"? I'm thinking for sure you have, but if you haven't? Pick it up! Loved it!

I'll be reviewing Whiter Than Snow later this month as well. I'm looking forward to discussing it with you when we (I) finish. It was exciting to walk into Barnes and Noble's and see it on their front entrance table.
