I wrote this book as part NoNa (November National Novel Month)This challenges authors to write a novel in just one month.....You guessed it! I wrote "The Snow's Meltdown" in one month. This was my first time writing a fiction novel and there are many more to come. I pray that you enjoy my work and continue to watch me grow and mature in my ability. God Bless!
From the Author
What happens when everything around you seems perfect - your family, your health, your social status, your overall life - but all of a sudden something threatens to tear it all apart and rob you of what you've always known? This type of thing happens to many people, every day, from all walks of life. Some are able to get over it and go on with their lives. But others are not so fortunate. They find themselves stuck in their own meltdown of loss, hurt, and pain. Such is the situation in Marita L. Kinney's latest novel, The Snow's Meltdown.

However; the novel was well thought out, I think. The author had a good story line. It seemed rushed, perhaps because it was written in a month as part of NANNO. But that is an accomplishment in itself.
I would like to read more fiction by this author. I think that her first entree into Christian fiction is a good one.
I know it's just a story, and at one time I laughed because there are many in the church today that confuse familiar spirits with anointing. All the running around the building and people shouting, screaming, crying is typical of the modern day church that has no real power but is being entertained by seducing and jezebel spirits that are rampant in the church today.
I was hoping it would end differently, but how could it when everyone involved was "playing church."
But, as I said earlier, it is a very good story line. Had these characters been real with their relationship, their family in a whole would have been covered and spared.
They always say the proof is in the pudding and in this story, you see the linkage between the 2 relationships and how bad decisions cause the unthinkable to happen. It is a must read.
I would definitely read from this Author again.
Written for a NoNa (November National Novel Month) challenge, there are a few loose ends that might be edited out, but understanding the situation, I could see the author getting all of the story down with the drama anticipated in a romance novel, then maybe tuning on it later. One of the beauties of an e-book is the way corrections can be made for future readers. This gutsy author makes the reader look at all the characters' warts, then, when romantic justice would call fire down on them, she makes the readers see how God really works to retrieve what can be.
The focus is on faith and trust. The ending is unexpected. As other reviewers have noted, there are recognizable images in every scenario. Life is seldom predictable nor does the action work out the best for everyone.
