Abstract:

As a blizzard bears down, Percy James sets off to find her troubled mother, Carletta. For years, Percy has had to take care of herself and Mama -- a woman who's been unraveling for as long as her daughter can remember. Fearing Carletta is strung out on meth and won't survive the storm, Percy heads for Shelton Potter's cabin, deep in the woods of northern Michigan. But when Percy arrives, there is no sign of Carletta. Searching the house, she finds Shelton and his girlfriend drugged into oblivion -- and a crying baby girl left alone in a freezing room upstairs. From the moment the baby wraps a tiny hand around her finger, Percy knows she must save her -- a split-second decision that commences a dangerous odyssey in which she must battle the elements and evade Shelton and a small band of desperate criminals hell-bent on getting that baby back. As the storm breaks and violence erupts, Percy will be forced to confront the haunting nature of her mother's affliction, and come to find her own fate tied more and more inextricably to that of the baby she is determined to save.
