    On their way to visit family a young couple, Grady and Dixie, and their 6 month old Daisy can t continue on in a storm and decide to take a detour to visit some friends who live close by Once they get there, RCMP officers Grady and his friend Ron, head out on a call about some loose buffalo, leaving Dixie alone with not so friendly Sharla The two women try to celebrate New Year s as best as they can in a storm and with someone they aren t too fond of Some secrets are revealed and an understanding forms While reading this I kept waiting for something interesting to happen It was all there a terrible storm, three unhappy marriages, a young baby but literally NOTHING happened It also didn t make much sense They were stopping at Ron and Sharla s house because the weather was too bad to continue driving, and yet Ron and Grady spent the entire night driving around Yes Ron was on duty, but after the buffalo incident was cleared up they continued to drive around town because he didn t want to go home And then Sharla and Dixie decide to walk down the road to a dance, and they bring the baby with them walking in a blizzard with a 6 month old really

    Another great little find at the Saskatoon Public Library I thought this short read had all the ingredients of a good short story good character and story development, description, dramatic tension I really value these short reads written in simple language, not only because they offer accessible reading for a broad audience, but as they demonstrate an author s capacity to create what are often quite complex narratives without embellishing language as Endicott does here The characters were very believable, as was the representation of small town, contemporary prairie life The reader gets a very credible and heart felt portrayal of a young mom struggling in her marriage and insight into life in the RCMP.
