I so wanted to like this book more than I did. Sadly, I was not very engaged with the characters, except for Lewis and Jasmine. His story and voice just touched me. He was someone that just hit a few bumps in life and yet, he was trying to turn his life around. Where Jasmine is concerned. She is the example of don't judge a book by its cover. She may have looked like a troubled teen but she had more underneath that layer.

This story started out slowly but when the storm came and everyone was trapped together, it moved at a fairly better pacing. So, if you can stick with this book, it does pick up and get better. I did see promise in this book but just wished that I could have connected with the characters better. ( )

I was drawn into the description of the novel as one of the positions held as a librarian was at a public library in the heart of a county seat and in the winter months I had an overnight case and a spare set of clothing in my vehicle in case of winter storm conditions that would make driving the long distance to my home perilous. As so many of our patrons walked to the library it really started my mind whirling to think of taking care of stranded patrons which hastened my selection to read the story of Nora Martinez and her patrons.

In reading the "Author’s Note" I learned about The Brautigan Library, a library that I was not aware existed. It was fascinating to learn how the author learned about the unique library on a snow day stimulating her creativity for this extraordinary novel.

Over the course of time many have given pause to reflect on the meaning of public libraries. The beauty of this novel is how libraries are not only described but depicted through the tale of a librarian, a security guard, and three (3) individuals with library cards not all who consider themselves library patrons. The group is of different backgrounds and ages but all are seeking refuge. As the hours pass through the snowstorm each person’s story unfolds and assumptions about one another also unravel. It’s not always easy to reveal worries and fears or any kind of personal struggle. It’s not always easy to make an opportunity or accept an opportunity for a new beginning. I was riveted to learn if the group would survive the storm and curious of the impact (if any) that might follow their exposure to one another.

Some of my favorite library/librarian descriptions and thoughts woven into the story are:

"…that libraries were one of the last places someone could go where they didn’t have to buy or believe in anything to come in."

"The library had been like finding cool water in the midst of a desert, a refuge, and the books inside, her escape."

"So library was the perfect escape; its quiet, her sanctuary; the books, her refuge, and Mrs. Washington, the one adult in her world who seemed to both understand and not judge."

"Is there a better place to be stranded than inside a library?"

This novel reminds us that every person that we meet on our life journey has their own unique story. Whether a person is smiling or is brusque, happy or crabby, doesn’t always reflect genuine feelings but may be a protective covering. I hope the story will open the possibilities to be kind and encouraging to one another.

My sincere thanks to Melissa Payne, and Lake Union Publishing for my complimentary digital copy of this title, via NetGalley, in exchange for my honest review.
