Flowers in the Snow
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
"Thought provoking, sometimes humorous, sometimes agitating, this is a true slice of life being part of a family of flawed humans."
— Tome Tender
The family has not been all together for months, needing the time to process what happened on that last weekend of the summer. Some are taking time to mourn. Others are seeking renewal in their relationships. Others still are stepping gingerly into the future. But, as the elderly matriarch of the brood, Gloria knows that distances can multiply quickly. So she invites everyone to share Christmas with her at the lake house, even suggesting that this might be her last Christmas. The others comply, though not without reservations, and when tensions rise, the wisdom of this holiday gathering is called into question.
But there is a surprise awaiting all, one that might change the meaning of family for all involved.
Continuing the dramatic and touching story begun in The Last Weekend of the Summer, Peter Murphy presents a story steeped in holiday spirit while telling a story ever more universal.
About the Author...
Examiner.com called Peter Murphy "a natural storyteller," and Savvy Verse and Wit said, "Murphy’s style is as complex as his characters, but readers will be absorbed in the forlorn myths and legends created and expounded upon.” Peter Murphy brings Ireland – both the real land and the land of legend – to life in lyrical, nuanced prose that has a music all its own.
