Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
After surviving a life-altering accident at twenty-two, Kathleen recuperates by retreating to a remote campground lodge in a state park, where she works flipping burgers for deer hunters and hikers — happy, she insists, to be left alone. But when a hesitant, heavily accented stranger appears in the dead of winter — seemingly out of nowhere, kicking snow from his flimsy dress shoes — the wary Kathleen is intrigued, despite herself. He says he’s a student from Uzbekistan. To her he seems shell-shocked, clearly hiding from something that terrifies him. And as she becomes absorbed in his secrets, she’s forced to confront her own — even as her awareness of being in danger grow. Steeped in the rugged beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains, with America’s war on terror raging in the background, Sarah St.Vincent’s Ways to Hide in Winter is a powerful story about violence and redemption, betrayal and empathy . . . and how we reconcile the unforgivable in those we love.
A young widow living in the Pennsylvania mountains and flipping burgers for hunters and hikers befriends a stranger visiting from Uzbekistan and becomes embroiled in a manhunt after he confesses to committing a terrible crime in his home country.
