Neve Halloran and her daughter have shared a fierce love for the austere beauty of Rhode Island’s South County ever since Neve guided Mickey’s first baby steps along the sandy shore. Now, with Mickey a teenager and Neve’s last hope for happiness with her daughter’s loving but unstable father gone, both will struggle to make a new life together amid the windswept landscape that sustains them.

Captivated by a fragile wildlife sanctuary, Mickey will move toward womanhood in the company of a lonely boy who shares her instinctive way with the creatures of the coast. And Neve will find herself drawn to a man who has devoted his life to the sanctuary, but who is unable to share the pain of a recent loss—or reconnect with the father who still bears the scars of World War II.

As winter gives way to spring, and spring to summer, a secret will emerge that has lain buried in the depths just offshore for decades, a secret that will galvanize the small seaside community. For the waters bear their own vestige of the past—and their ceaseless rhythms may point the way to hope and new beginnings.

Lyrical, luminous, and utterly captivating, The Edge of Winter is Luanne Rice at her most penetrating and insightful, in a moving exploration of the bonds that shape us and set us free.

    " Rice is a favorite author of mine. This is one of her least complex books. A simple feel good story. The ending could have been more developed though. "

    " Loved the story, it was layout in a way you had a hard time knowing what would happen next. Life can be hard, be forgiving and try to always look for the good things in life, "

    " Decent easy, light read. I wish her writing and storylines were more like those she wrote when she first started, they just aren't the same to me. However, it was a fun, easy read. I think I am nearing my end of Luanne Rice reading days though...it seems she's exhausted all of her good ideas. "
