Tori Munro is a teacher that enjoyed her job... except her interaction with her principal. She had survived a bad marriage mainly by running away to teach in a small town, and she knew how to cope with a bully... by kowtowing. Tom was a visiting advisor to the school and loved her passion, but he only comes every few months. Tom was not happy with Tori's decision to stay quiet about principal's bullying behavior, but he will accept her decision. When teacher's union rep reported that a grievance was filed against the principal, Tori thought Tom had betrayed her and cut off all contact. Tom had no idea he's getting the cold shoulder and decided he had enough of Tori's craziness. When Tori realized it was a misunderstanding, she went back to Tom, but Tom did not want her back. Hoping to clear her head, Tori went hiking and was caught in a freak snowstorm. Will she survive? Will Tom come to realize he can't live without her? Why did the principal hate her anyway?
The darkest hour and the external danger forcing a change of heart (or at least a re-evaluation) is a trope. And the threat was almost unrelated to the main plot. The reason why the principal hate Tori came across is "just weird" (and I am NOT spoiling that). The idea that Tom only comes to school every few MONTHS and a romance can develop from that is also quite weird. All in all, I can only rate this average.
'Tori couldn’t tell when her tears had started to flow, but once they began there was no stopping them, and all inhibitions to cry were gone, as if on a barren hill in an unforgiving environment, emotions had to be experienced twice as hard in order to be noticed.'
Thoroughly enjoyed this read and cannot wait for the next book, Teaching Tom!
