New York Times bestselling author
Jon Katz has written successfully in genres ranging from mystery to nonfiction.
Here he offers a moving and powerful novel, the first one inspired by life on
his celebrated Bedlam Farm—and perceptively told from the point of view of
Rose, a dedicated working dog.
Rose is determined and focused, keeping the sheep out of danger and
protecting the other creatures on the farm she calls home. But of all those
she’s looked after since coming to the farm as a puppy, it is Sam, the farmer,
whom she watches most carefully.
Awoken one cold midwinter night during lambing season, Rose and Sam
struggle into the snowy dark to do their work. The ever observant Rose has seen
a change in her master of late, ever since Sam’s wife disappeared one day. She
senses something else in the air as well: a storm is coming, but not like any
of the ones she’s seen over the years. This storm feels different, bigger, more
When an epic blizzard hits the region, it will take all of Rose’s
resolve, resourcefulness, and courage to help Sam save the farm and the
creatures who live there.
Jon Katz consulted with animal behavior scientists to create his unique
and convincing vision of the world as seen through the eyes of a dog. Poignant,
thrilling, and beautifully wrought, Rose in a Storm is a wonderfully
original and powerful tale from a gifted storyteller.
