Today is the much anticipated release day for Winter of the Wolf by Martha Hunt Handler. A huge thanks to FSB Associates for sending me an advanced copy of this book.
A must read emotional thriller that includes deep themes of suicide and guilt. Our characters must wade through their heavy emotions and experiences to find the answers that are on the other side. A must read for those that enjoy mystery and thrillers, you won’t be disappointed.
An exploration in grief, suicide, spiritualism, and Inuit culture, Winter of the Wolf follows Bean, an empathic and spiritually evolved fifteen-year-old, who is determined to unravel the mystery of her brother Sam’s death. Though all evidence points to a suicide, her heart and intuition compel her to dig deeper. With help from her friend Julie, they retrace Sam’s steps, delve into his Inuit beliefs, and reconnect with their spiritual beliefs to uncover clues beyond material understanding.
Both tragic and heartwarming, this twisting novel draws you into Bean’s world as she struggles with grief, navigates high school dramas, and learns to open her heart in order to see the true nature of the people around her. Winter of the Wolf is about seeking the truth—no matter how painful—in order to see the full picture.
In this novel, environmentalist and award-winning author, Martha Handler, brings together two important pieces of her life—the death of her best friend’s son and her work as president of the Wolf Conservation Center—to tell an empathetic and powerful story with undeniable messages.

I personally enjoy reading more thoughtful stories like this, that challenge me to think through a hard situation and come out the other side more informed and better prepared for hard situations I might face in my life.
