    When Winter Comes Kindle Ý When Winter Epub / when epub, winter pdf, comes pdf, When Winter book, When Winter Comes MOBIAs the author of this novel I thought it might be a nice idea to just write a little about it and the background to my writing it So first my one line synopsis An everyday story of quilting and cannibalism Other than that I can't really categorise it It's got a love story in it but it's not a romance it's got some murdering and a few Hannibal Lecter ish moments but it's not a horror story or a detective y thriller It's basically just a story set in pioneer California in the nineteenth century about a woman living a life of domestic tranquillity whilst hiding a terrible secret This novel started life as a small part of another contemporary novel but an agent I sent it to said he'd be interested in the straightforward historical narrative so sadly miserably I discarded all my carefully crafted two years' worth of contemporary plot and started over with just the historical bit I have to say I loved writing it very time consumi
