A GUNTHWAITE GIRL
A Companion Title to The Snowy Series
This novelette interconnects A Born Maniac, set in 2001-2, and Site Fidelity, set in 2008.
“The cabin fever of winter had become spring fever.”
That’s what poet Henrietta Snow, known as Snowy, is thinking in the spring of 2005. Woodcombe, New Hampshire, the New Hampshre town in which she has lived for twenty years, and Gunthwaite, her nearby hometown, seem to her like prisons. She is confined by her surroundings and memories, by family and financial worries, by her work at her general store. How can she escape?
When she is suddenly asked to lead a tour of the hometown places that have inspired her poems, she panics. She can’t do it! But her best friend, Bev, lives in Gunthwaite and bracingly tells her she can, and their skeptical friend, Puddles, agrees to drive down from Maine to join them in a trial run.
So these Gunthwaite girls set forth together into the past on a day trip that will affect the way they look forward into their futures.
