Description: In the dead of winter, her marriage over, a young woman leaves New York City with her two cats and drives north with little more than a few cans of Spam and the vague hope of reinventing herself from ground zero. She comes to a cabin and knows it will be home for a while. Outside, all is Fargo-white, but inside, where the fire burns and the tea brews, her life begins to unfold before her in vivid color. Reality becomes as unpredictable as the weather -- her cats reveal hidden talents, wishes suddenly have a special power -- and her anger at a lifetime of misinformation reveals itself as the frightening beast that it is.

When a trio of visitors, each hauntingly familiar, arrive at her cabin door, one thing becomes clear to the woman: This is what she's been waiting for. But has she begun a final descent into madness, or is she, for the first time in her life, finding her way to a true sense of peace? Her survival depends on her ability to recognize herself in an ever-expanding house of mirrors.

Betsy Howie takes themes we are all familiar with -- alienation, the possibility of loving another person, and the growing estrangement between the sexes -- and turns them inside out with her unique perspective.
