What would you do if you found valued keepsakes left by the previous homeowners in your residence? Nina DeMarco pondered this question as she discovered hidden letters in a crawl space in her attic apartment. Captivated by Lilia Michaud's story, Nina rediscovers herself after experiencing a troubled divorce and is motivated, excited, and has a new purpose. She is determined to find and return these letters to Lilia while reuniting her with the two inspirations behind the letters in Kasey Rogers's The Color of Frost

Nina also meets Maddie, Penny, and Ben, all with their own story. Together they form a unique and much-needed bond. ''Sometimes you do just have to make your own family.'' The story's content is eye-opening. The author addresses the intense subject of sexual abuse and suicide. Some common themes involve love, loss, self-discovery, and community. These compelling characters have come together to assist one another through their trauma and daily living, and the beauty in this is that they err on the side of caution while still willing to push the envelope for the answers they seek. 

The themes are resonant — crucial, heartfelt, and gripping. The Color of Frost is an intriguing piece of literature, a story with memorable characters and a plot that moves steadily forward. The book has many lessons and readers will quickly grasp the recurring thought that their circumstances don't define who they are. This book is warm, at times humorous, and full of women's empowerment despite its dark moments. A book for the romantics, adventurers, and those who love a good inspirational and motivating story.  It hits all the right notes and the beautiful prose makes for an additional layer of entertainment.
