Elle Klass goes beyond that. Rather than trying to squeeze the entire universe into bulky packages or compartments, the author takes a single life, and, As Snow Falls, tells the reader a story, simple and plain, but one loaded with a lifetime of heart-tugging experiences.
The book is simple enough, but deep as the falling snow with heart-touching passages of time from the vantage point of one individual and her radiating circles of relationships that begin to form and expand over time.
Klass breaks through another barrier. As a reader, I love dialogue; I thrive on it. This is a telling story, but is it ever real, so real it becomes an experience of intimacy for the reader. I loved the simple “telling.” Klass’s blend of words and sentences not only reveals the heart of her story, but exposes the reader’s feelings at every level. Thus that feeling of intimacy with the central character, Storm, as she shares the reflections of her life.
The author chooses a perfect setting as she unravels her story. A mountain cabin, simply furnished, but rich with memories of the passage of time, as the rocking chair creaks quietly, and As Snow Falls outside. Klass leaves nothing out. Her story is rich with emotion, complete with phases, ages and stages, and pivotal points and places that form the dots along life’s path that we often fail to connect, until we reflect, quietly.
This is a story about aspirations, dreams, falling down and getting up, and following dreams again. You’ll come face to face with the simple arithmetic of life, the adding and the subtracting, the gains, the losses, and rewards. But it all adds up as reflections of memories, As Snow Falls.
It is a beautifully written excursion of the human experience. Imagine gathering with a few close friends up at the mountain cabin, favorite beverage at hand, and crackling fire in the hearth. The author, Elle Klass, is seated before us in a rocking chair, gives us a smile, nods toward the large picture window framing the snowy night, and quietly says, “As Snow Falls, let me tell you a story.”
And Klass does just that, an evening filled with Five-Stars of enjoyment from her emotion-tugging story. As Snow Falls has earned a permanent place on my women’s fiction shelf. And I gladly give another Five-Stars for the selection of the book’s cover which was illustrated by Renae Van Brunt, the author’s daughter. In a world where everything screams for attention with vivid color, the simple, subtle drawing was a welcome relief.
Congratulations! A high-Klass piece of work, Ms. Klass, in every sense of the word.
I recommend this book for anybody interested in reading a life story worth reading and it certainly does not exempt any age, background or society.
A beautiful, short story, of a woman that reflects back on her life while watching the snow fall from her small house. The author takes you back from the day that the woman was born, which I found very noteworthy. The potty training, learning to walk, her relationship with her sister, all this was part of the shaping process for her. You learn about her experiences, her journey to adulthood, her love and the choices and how it had influenced her throughout her years: from a baby to a ripe old age. You learn how her love life was affected by two men who cared for her deeply, protecting her, even if she didn't know it at first.
It is a story of reflection, remembering and enjoying the fruits of your labor in a thought-provoking way. Great story, wonderfully written with enough information that really helps you to connect with her and her life.
A quote that fits this book perfectly:
"Live a good and honorable life. Then when you are older you can look back and enjoy it a second time." Dalai Lama
