Review: ‘Winter Wish’ Dixie Minor

Dixie Minor’s Y/A book, ‘Winter Dream’, is set in the shadow of the north Georgia Mountains. The culture of a country town is reflected through the eyes of 18-year-old Jessie.

The loss of her mother at an early age permeates the story that encapsulates the uncertainties of youth.

Turmoil and dangers disrupt this peaceful town; combined with boy friend issues; suspense is maintained.

Jessie’s maturation is shown with her realization that she is not responsible for other people’s problems and happiness.

This book retains wholesome family values, without resorting to horror and terror. A welcome gift for any teenager. Dixie Minor is a fellow blogger and can be found at:

    I would have been delgihted to read Dixie’s book, but that – as I told her – I gave away my Kindle, not realising that I would have need of it. 😦

        She didn’t tell me that !!! I was labouring under the delusion that it was a Kindle publication.
        Off I go.
        Thanks, Barbara …

    Thank you so very much, Barbara, for reading my book and for reviewing it. It means so much to me! I love that my book, set in a small mountain town in north Georgia, is being read in Australia! Across the ocean! 🙂 I am very honored that a blogger whose writing I enjoy so much read and reviewed my book, and I love the phrases you used to describe the book.( You described it much better than I can!) Many, many thanks!
