Seasons in a Small Town: Winter
The past might be cold, but it’s familiar for Anne. And the future? That might be as gray as a mid-winter Illinois sky. She’s desperately trying to hold on to her late husband's family farm. With his Uncle Everett disabled and her new to farming, loans are impossible to get.
Between the farm and the bookkeeping she does for businesses in town, she’s working to exhaustion. And she’s not good at asking for help. Never has been.
Then here comes Quince.
As an executive of the high-tech company bringing operations to Drago, Illinois – and driving up land prices and taxes – he represents part of the problem. But that doesn’t mean Annie can afford to turn down his rent money when Uncle Everett lines him up as a boarder. And – just what she needs -- the two of them hit it off like an old-fashioned comedy team.
Quince is a warm front moving fast through her home and her life, promising spring even when all around is frozen. His quick humor and easygoing ways reach deep into the coldest part of Anne’s troubled heart.
But she realizes that behind that front, Quince, too, has icy demons.
Can Anne save not only this farm she loves, but also herself … and Quince?
