Winner of a prestigious PEN American fellowship and the Lupine Award by the Maine Library Association, SEASON OF ICE tells the story of Genesis, whose father ventures out on Moosehead Lake in northern Maine in late fall and never returns. When the lake freezes over, so do the lives and hopes of Genesis and her family. With no body, and no hope of finding one until the ice thaws, the family is denied access to insurance money, and a period of insufferable waiting begins. As the long winter drags on, rumors of a faked death and an extra-marital affair surface. Genesis takes on her own search for the truth about her father...and in the process, discovers the woman she is fast becoming. Taut and darkly compelling, Season Of Ice perfectly captures the intensity of a young woman bracing for truth, inadvertently finding love, and waiting for answers that only the thaw will bring.
