She Does Not Fear the Snow Book Review

My Review

She Does Not Fear the Snow is part journey of discovery, part love story and part Christian testimony.  It all makes for a fascinating, inspirational read.

Bobbie Ann Cole tells the story of her battle with cancer, the dissolution of her marriage and her search for “something more”.  She stumbles upon Christianity and, as a Jew, struggles with whether she will be disowned by her friends and family for her new beliefs.  I admire her strength to tell her friends and family the truth, even though some of them were not as receptive as others.

This is also the story of Bobbie and Butch – how they found each other and how they overcame their apprehension from previous failed relationships in order to trust God that this one was right.  I especially enjoyed Butch’s perspective at the end of the book.

Since Bobbie’s life is still a work in progress (as are all of us), the book did leave me wondering where some things ended up.  Did all of the prophecies Bobbie was told come true?  What happened to her friend Terry (Butch’s sister)?

I give She Does Not Fear the Snow four stars.  It is an excellent story that will keep your attention, make you laugh, wonder and cry.
