Amazon Editorial Review

Welcome to Mattagash, Maine, a town where everyone's personal lives are as entwined as their family trees. On the day of the first snowfall, the residents brace themselves for the long winter ahead. Mere survival will be hard; dealing with each other is another story. As winter settles in, various Mattagashians careen from conundrum to conundrum, trying to save dying small businesses, caring for crabby loved ones, and cruising through town, stirring up gossip any way they can get it. Through it all, 107-year-old Mathilda Fennelson reflects on her life as the town's oldest resident, born the year Mattagash was founded. Through her dreams and memories, she reveals the scrappy, strange, and earnest pioneer history of these people weighed down by their own existence. At once funny, insightful, and heartbreaking, The Weight of Winter weaves together the lives of Mattagash's residents as they struggle to survive another winter with their quirky neighbors and the endless pressure of their collective history.

The Big Box O' Books arrived safely today - many thanks! I'll try to find lots of different places to release these, so that your books might report back from several different towns and states.

This hardcover has a rural-Maine setting, and as per the title it features a snowy winter as well - quite atmospheric and with some regional interest. Its closing scenes, in a snowbound graveyard, evoked notes of "Our Town"...
