I loved this book, when I read it about 7 years ago, and I kept it on my bookshelf. I love true history stories. Ironically, while doing family research, I discovered that one of my ancestors died in this blizzard, and his body was not found for about 4 months. In the family history book, they refer to this as The Schoolhouse Blizzard. If you like true history, you will enjoy this book.

I really liked this book. It made you think about what happens after a loved one dies, in a non-preachy manner, with a nice family story.

I really enjoyed this book. Written from the point of view of a small boy. It embroils you into the trials of a family eeking out a living of a cotton farm. Mystery, murder, and secrets abound.
