Seattle, 1933. Vera Ray kisses her three-year-old son, Daniel, good night and reluctantly leaves for work. She hates the night shift, but it’s the only way she can earn enough to keep destitution at bay. In the morning—even though it’s the second of May—a heavy snow is falling. Vera rushes to wake Daniel, but his bed is empty. His teddy bear lies outside in the snow.

Seattle, present day. On the second of May, Seattle Herald reporter Claire Aldridge awakens to another late-season snowstorm. Assigned to cover this “blackberry winter” and its predecessor decades earlier, Claire learns of Daniel’s unsolved abduction and vows to unearth the truth—only to discover that she and Vera are linked in unexpected ways.

    " I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It has a lot of sadness, but the story is unique and pure and focuses on grief and the grieving process. "

    " I'd actually rate this a 4.5 except for a few inconsistencies and situations that just happened to be too convenient for the story line. This was the first book I've read by this author and I did enjoyed it very much. When a newspaper reporter starts research on an article she has no idea that the mystery she needs to solve will involve her actual family and what happened over 80 years ago. Jio has a very soft, factual way of writing that takes the reader right into the story. I couldn't put it down and read it in one sitting. I liked how Jio allowed the story to have a happy ending and how she tied up all the loose ends. I definitely need to read more of her books. This was just a lovely story, especially for women who love their children. "

    " I needed something a little lighter after the last two books I have read, so I grabbed this....to bad it is about a missing child. That said, it is a very fast read. It is tow different stories, fifty years apart that are, of course, intertwined. A little predictable, and It ends a little abruptly, but still decent. "
