È tutto bianco. Il cielo, i tetti, le strade. Claire Aldridge è come ipnotizzata davanti a quello scenario. Mai si sarebbe aspettata una tempesta di neve a primavera, un evento rarissimo anche in una città fredda come Seattle. L’ultima volta che si è verificato, infatti, è stato nel lontano 1933, e proprio in quello stesso giorno di maggio. È una coincidenza troppo singolare per non stuzzicare l’interesse giornalistico di Claire, che comincia subito a fare delle ricerche. Ed è così che s’imbatte in un vecchio rapporto di polizia, in cui una donna di nome Vera Ray denuncia la scomparsa del figlio Daniel. Una denuncia che, per Claire, diventa una sfida: riuscirà a scoprire cos’è successo al piccolo Daniel e a ritrovarlo, dopo tutti questi anni?

This is a very special novel to me. I dedicated it to my three young sons, and to mothers everywhere who have lost children. I hope you will enjoy the book as much as I enjoyed writing it! xo
Hmm - hard to review this book. I liked the story - I read it quickly - and I wanted to know what happened. But the whole thing read to me like a soap opera. The characters all seemed cliched to me, and sort of one note. The dialogue was overblown - people don't really talk like that - especially fr Leggi tutto
When a late spring snowstorm (called a blackberry winter) hits Seattle in May 2010, Claire Aldridge - a feature writer for the Seattle Herald - is asked to write a story comparing the whiteout to a similar event that occurred in May 1933. After researching the historical storm Claire decides to focu Leggi tutto
I was so frustrated with this novel that I often wonder how I had the drive to finish it. As other astute reviewers have noted, this is no more than a lifetime movie put on paper using high school-level writing. Everything was so conveniently positioned in the "uncovering" of her "mystery" from the

This story intricately weaves the events surrounding the disappearance of a 3-year old boy (Daniel Ray) in 1933 with a journalist's (Claire Aldridge) search for answers in present day. There's a somewhat mystical element in how seemingly unrelated situations converge to help unravel the mystery. The Leggi tutto
While other readers will probably enjoy the story it just wasn't my cup of tea. I felt that the characters were somewhat one dimensional and I felt no rapport with any of them. I think if more back story had been given I might have been more intrigued. In some instances I felt that the characters re Leggi tutto
Borrowed from the Pikes Peak Library District I can NOT remember what compelled me to borrow this book - not just borrow it but I wait-listed it. All I can say is UGH. I need to stop reading books that I know are NOT in my favorite genres. This is one. Pathetic and predictable. I read some reviews th Leggi tutto
I liked the style of writing very much, the story was well thought out although I guessed what happened right after the kidnap. But I didn't appreciate the sentimentality and the moral lessons.
This book was abysmal! The only reason I'm giving it 2 stars instead of one is because I actually read to the end - I'll save the 1 star rating for books I don't finish. Let's start off with what initially attracted me to "Blackberry Winter". I love the cover, and the blurb on the back sounded inter Leggi tutto
