In 2011, Sarah Jio burst onto the fiction scene with two sensational novels--The Violets of March and The Bungalow. With Blackberry Winter--taking its title from a late-season, cold-weather phenomenon--Jio continues her rich exploration of the ways personal connections can transcend the boundaries of time.
Seattle, 1933. Single mother Vera Ray kisses her three-year-old son, Daniel, goodnight and departs to work the night-shift at a local hotel. She emerges to discover that a May-Day snow has blanketed the city, and that her son has vanished. Outside, she finds his beloved teddy bear lying face-down on an icy street, the snow covering up any trace of his tracks, or the perpetrator's.
Seattle, 2010. Seattle Herald reporter Claire Aldridge, assigned to cover the May 1 "blackberry winter" storm and its twin, learns of the unsolved abduction and vows to unearth the truth. In the process, she finds that she and Vera may be linked in unexpected ways...

Pleasant, distracting reading
Pleasant, easy reading, especially I have a small baby so I cannot really concentrate much. I read all her books and she should probably start changing her plots a bit. As I said, the book was entertaining, but one immediately guesses how the story unfolds since the very first chapter. It becomes too predictable.
I love all of Sarah Jio's books! This book honestly made me feel like I was part of the storyline. I even cried at parts of the book, tears of joy! I have recommended this book to all of my family and friends. All of them have loved it as well. Easy read, great story, must buy! I also would recommend any of other 2 books. MUST READ!
Couldn't put it down
I love books by Sarah Jio. I find I really get caught up in them and her books have a great twists and turns. I loved the storyline, her writing and the believability of her characters, which grow on you. I particularly love the way the main characters grow throughout the story. Definitely a book I looked forward to curling up every evening with. I absolutely recommend.
