While Kari is driving, they drive into a snowstorm and have to sit through a road closure for the night. When they are able to get back on the road, a second blizzard hits and Kari pulls off the road and follows a snow plow. They find themselves at an abandoned restaurant and lodge to wait out the storm. Kari goes through the kitchen and finds food to make and they are able to stay warm by the fireplace. While staying at the lodge the family pull together to survive. Kari's younger sister apologizes for the way she talks to others.
I enjoyed reading this book. There were several parts of the book that were very funny. But for the most part I just wanted to keep reading to see what was going to happen next. There is a little bit of romance in the story with Kari and the young man at a hotel as well. The part I enjoyed most was while they were at the lodge. The love they showed to each other and how they took care of Granny was enjoyable to read.
Any one who enjoys reading adventure stories will enjoy this book. It is a good clean book that could be enjoyed by youth and adults alike. There are some parts of the book where the better proof reading could have been used but it did not disrupt the story.
I received a copy of this book from the author and Book Club Network. I have written an honest review.
Granny is determined to take a trip in her Caddy even though she shouldn't be driving anymore. Her granddaughters can't just let her go alone, so off they go at 3:00 am on a trip they will never forget. The author made me feel like I was in the car with them.i could fell the excitement Granny had until the car decided to stop running. I laughed as the group went to a restaurant to eat. Granny wanted to have pea soup and requested that each girl try some. I can see the looks of their faces as the first taste went into their mouth. I must say pea soup doesn't look appetizing and it is an acquired taste.
The best part of the book for me was when they were snowbound and found an empty lodge to seek shelter. That is when the depth of faith and love really showed. The gentle care the girls showed for their granny was real and made me realize how much they loved her. There are some comical moments in the book that had me laughing out loud. Granny talked about having to warsh something. I say warsh all the time and my kids are always correcting me. I grew attached to the characters and the author had me on edge while they were trapped at the lodge. The story is very well written and I loved how the author showed how important family and faith go hand in hand. This will be a book I will not forget. It gave me some good memories of my grandmother and how she loved to tell stories like Granny did with her granddaughters. Thank you for writing a book that reminds us about perseverance, faith and the importance of family.
