Before I start, I should mention that I am a fussy reader. I regularly stop reading books if they do not hold my attention. Just recently I gave up on a hugely successful bestseller because the author could not hold my interest.
There was no chance of me losing interest in Winter. Newsome managed to hold the interest of a middle-aged dad with a story about a goth teenager. Using believable characters, perfect pacing, top-notch character development, and edge-of-the-seat plotting, he made sure I would follow this to the very end. And am I glad I did. This is the best ending I have read in many years. I had goose-bumps as I closed the book.
Keven Newsome is a born storyteller and I highly recommend Winter to anyone looking for a good read with a powerful Christian message.
An easy five stars.
