    Seattle, 1933: Vera Ray kisses her three-year-old son, Daniel, good night and reluctantly leaves for work. She hates the night shift, but it’s the only way she can earn enough to keep destitution at bay. In the morning - even though it’s the second of May - a heavy snow is falling. Vera rushes to wake Daniel, but his bed is empty. His teddy bear lies outside in the snow. Seattle, present day: On the second of May, reporter Claire Aldridge awakens to another late-season snowstorm. Assigned to cover this "blackberry winter" and its predecessor decades earlier, Claire learns of Daniel’s unsolved abduction and vows to unearth the truth.

    Anne says: "Pretty good story buried under turgid narration"
    "One of the best"

    Would you listen to Blackberry Winter again? Why?

    Yes


    What did you like best about this story?

    Although it didn't grab me right at the first, when it did it would not let go!! I couldn't stop listening to this book and it's characters.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I especially like her moments with the grandfather (don't want to be specific) BUT would really recommend someone make this into a movie for Lifetime (or such). I have not been so moved in a long time.


    Any additional comments?

    PLEASE send this to a screenwriter!!!!
