So, I finished reading this over the course of the weekend and decided to share. I’ve read some other stuff by this author and that was what made me give this one a try. The book kept going at a pretty good pace throughout, I didn’t get bored or bogged down at any point during this book. In the book, it does switch back and forth between 1908 and present day so you have two different timelines going in this book but I didn’t find the book hard to follow though. The ending was a real surprise as I neared the end of the book and very shocking. It’s not who you think it is but you’ll have to read it for yourself ’cause I don’t want to spoil it for someone else.
Synopsis: West Hall, Vermont, has always been a town of strange disappearances and old legends. The most mysterious is that of Sara Harrison Shea, who, in 1908, was found dead in the field behind her house just months after the tragic death of her daughter.
Now, in present day, nineteen-year-old Ruthie lives in Sara’s farmhouse with her mother, Alice, and her younger sister. Alice has always insisted that they live off the grid, a decision that has weighty consequences when Ruthie wakes up one morning to find that Alice has vanished. In her search for clues, she is startled to find a copy of Sara Harrison Shea’s diary hidden beneath the floorboards of her mother’s bedroom. As Ruthie gets sucked into the historical mystery, she discovers that she’s not the only person looking for someone that they’ve lost. But she may be the only one who can stop history from repeating itself.
Never heard of The Winter People until reading this. Sounds like a great read. Thank you for not spoiling the ending, thinking of purchasing this one. Have you read any other books by Jennifer?

You’re welcome. I have read some other stuff by this author. I’ve read “The Night Sister” and “The Invited”. I think that the Invited is my favorite book so far from this author.
