The Stroke of Winter - Wendy Webb - A Short Summary and Review


A short summary of The Stroke of Winter:

A chef's encounter with a haunted past during a historic home renovation.

My favorite Wendy Webb quote from the book:

"It was all too easy to take a thing for granted, even something beautiful, when you lived with it every day."

Questions to ponder while reading The Stroke of Winter:

Do you know all of your family's secrets?

Are you afraid of the past?

My review of the book:

A fun haunted house story.

I loved the food!

I loved the dogs!
