Waking Storm's Winter is a work of literary historical fiction. A widowed homesteader struggles to adapt emotionally and physically to the loss of her husband within a year of their arrival in Colorado. With the onset of winter comes an enigmatic stranger, injured and alone, whom she reluctantly nurses back to health within her one-room cabin only to discover he poses a serious threat to the continued possession of her land.
She stood still now, in front of the window, and waited, waited for a feeling, any feeling. Nothing. Each day his touch grew weaker, distant, cold. Maybe today was the day it disappeared, frozen into stillness by the falling snow...She waited, quiet, listening, longing. Shaking the barren branches of the watchful tree above her, a sharp gust of icy wind provided the sole answer to her vow. His voice was silent, his touch absent. And in the fading light of the first day of December, under the chilling blanket of the first snow of winter, she shed her first tears of aloneness.
