There were plenty of times during the course of the story that I had reservations (“How can this be?”) and I was afraid that the answers would either be unsatisfactory or completely missing (as sometimes happens in books).

    7. Trapped by a record blizzard, the residents of a small American town are rescued from death by time travellers.The story opens with the town of Crystal Falls preparing for an unseasonal heavy snowfall. A range of well-developed characters are introduced as they try to help each other survive. It’s interesting and engaging stuff, but it does take a while to get to the science fiction content.

    8. Excellent stand alone book.This story took several unexpected twists. It's unusual in that it has a strong finite ending. The characters were good people at heart and loyal to a fault.
