When Eric drops out of college and lucks into a job with a small-town newspaper, he meets Anna, an older woman with a story that will both haunt and inspire him for the rest of his life. Set in a remote North Dakota community in the last days before the Internet, the story unfolds around a romance that almost was and a meditation on what constitutes a life well-lived.

Narrated by Eric as he looks back on their days together, he struggles to reconcile his memories with what he has since learned about Anna. The Winter in Anna is filled with moments of tenderness, even as it slowly reveals an unbearable tragedy at the heart of a quietly defiant life.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A fledgling reporter is drawn to a woman with a tragic past in this quietly powerful story of unlikely friendship and small-town dreams, which will appeal to fans of Pat Conroy and Ward Just.”


  • “From Anna’s memories of loss to Eric’s regret over what might have been—and been different for Anna—this wise, bittersweet novel of roads taken and not taken and the consequences of our choices, plays out against the backdrop of the almost existential emptiness of the Dakota prairies—a land as beautiful and unforgiving as life itself.”

    Library Journal (starred review)

  • “Anna’s story and the mystery of her death are captivating, and Eric’s meditations on the grieving process are wonderfully crafted. Eric’s journalistic attempt to piece together Anna’s story make this a beautiful, touching novel.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “A longtime journalist looks back solemnly at his first job and one cryptic woman’s influence on him…Flash back to young Ricky, fresh out of college and quickly elevated to editor-in-chief of a small-town weekly newspaper…The job itself isn’t especially demanding…Anna is the real focus of his investigative skills, a puzzle he can’t solve but keeps coming back to.”
