Touching Snow

by M. Sindy Felin
Sunday, February 24, 2008

This small book packs a lot of emotion. This is a story of a family of Haitian immigrants and the abuse the young girls suffered at the hands of their step-father. If you don't have a strong stomach I would not recommend this book. The details can be awfully vivid. Once again, this book shows the reader how one person can live through extreme situations and make it. Anyone who has ever suffered abuse, or know someone who has, can relate deeply to themain character's struggles.

This book is hilarious and extremely informative of his trials and pitfalls of the journey--not only his physical journey on the trail, but his journey to becoming a man as well.
