Leanne W. Smith
Alone in a Cabin
Maggie was alone in the cabin when the snowstorm began, until a half-frozen man appeared on the doorstep. On the eve of Maggie Raines’ fiftieth birthday, her husband announces he has gotten his young receptionist pregnant. Months later, newly-divorced Maggie sees an ad for an 1800s cabin billed as the “perfect writer’s retreat.” For years she has wondered if she has what it takes to be a fiction writer. Maggie rents the cabin for the week between Christmas and New Year’s hoping the old log walls will inspire a story. And they do—just not the story she imagines. A ghost. A body. A lonely small town sheriff. If Maggie can survive her own story, she might find her heart’s rhythm again. In this moving modern-day story about a woman trying to piece her life back together, Leanne W. Smith transports readers to an 1800s cabin. A tragic event that occurred at the old homestead and the people in the small town who were most impacted by it, hold out unexpected hope and inspiration for the budding author, and for anyone trying to regain their footing in a broken and uncertain world.
