The Winter Box - by Tim Waggoner - Wow. A compelling novella
The Winter Box, is a lovely tradition started by Heather and her then boyfriend, Todd, a young couple in love.
Let's each pick one object — something small — that represents our relationship. The other person will have to guess why he or she chose it, and then we'll put them in the box and save them.
As the years slip away, so does this charming ritual and their passion for one another.
Tim Waggoner's writing is crisp and clear, unlike the weather. Bitter cold, heavy snow, and a biting wind, combine for blizzard conditions keeping the couple snowbound. What happens next is nothing short of heartbreaking.
The Winter Box is available as an e-book from Darkfuse Publishing. If you subscribe to Kindle Unlimited you can read it at no additional charge and if you are an Amazon Prime member you can read it for FREE through the Kindle Owners Lending Library.
