    In an endless winter, she carries seeds of hope

    Wylodine comes from a world of paranoia and poverty&;her family grows marijuana illegally, and life has always been a battle. Now she&;s been left behind to tend the crop alone. Then spring doesn&;t return for the second year in a row, bringing unprecedented, extreme winter.

    With grow lights stashed in her truck and a pouch of precious seeds, she begins a journey, determined to start over away from Appalachian Ohio. But the icy roads and strangers hidden in the hills are treacherous. After a harrowing encounter with a violent cult, Wil and her small group of exiles become a target for the cult&;s volatile leader. Because she has the most valuable skill in the climate chaos: she can make things grow.

    Urgent and poignant, Road Out of Winter is a glimpse of an all-too-possible near future, with a chosen family forged in the face of dystopian collapse. With the gripping suspense of The Road and the lyricism of Station Eleven, Stine&;s vision is of a changing world where an unexpected hero searches for where hope might take root.

    &;Richly imagined, deeply moving and unthinkably offers hope in a world that uncannily resembles ours currently in the thick of COVID-19&;. Gloriously well-written.&; &;Ms. Magazine
