In the wintery silences of Pennsylvania's Blue Ridge Mountains, a woman befriends a mysterious foreigner--setting in motion this suspenseful, atmospheric, politically charged debut

After surviving a life-altering accident at twenty-two, Kathleen recuperates by retreating to a remote campground lodge in a state park, where she works flipping burgers for deer hunters and hikers--happy, she insists, to be left alone.

But when a hesitant, heavily accented stranger appears in the dead of winter--seemingly out of nowhere, kicking snow from his flimsy dress shoes--the wary Kathleen is intrigued, despite herself. He says he's a student from Uzbekistan. To her he seems shell-shocked, clearly hiding from something that terrifies him. And as she becomes absorbed in his secrets, she's forced to confront her own--even as her awareness of being in danger grows . . .

Steeped in the rugged beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains, with America's war on terror raging in the background, Sarah St.Vincent's Ways to Hide in Winter is a powerful story about violence and redemption, betrayal and empathy . . . and how we reconcile the unforgivable in those we love.
