Set during the roaring 1920s in the beautiful, wild area on Rainy Lake where Minnesota meets Canada, Frozen tells the remarkable story of Sadie Rose, whose mother died under strange circumstances the same night that Sadie Rose was found, unable to speak, in a snowbank. Sadie Rose doesn't know her last name and has only fleeting memories of her mother-and the conflicting knowledge that her mother had worked in a brothel. Taken in as a foster child by a corrupt senator, Sadie Rose spends every summer along the shores of Rainy Lake, where her silence is both a prison and a sanctuary.
Update: I finished this book and was wanting more. The author clearly has a way of painting a picture for her audience. I could clearly see the setting of the book, in the period of time it took place. Great reference to places and actions of people in general. This book would make a wonderful "Who Done It" style movie. Kept you guessing right up to the end, when all of the pieces fell neatly into place. Two thumbs up!
