Talking Book Review

The Children’s Blizzard by David Laskin

Hello Readers!

I hope that this review finds you feeling well and preparing for Spring  

ILAB’s book of the month is The Children’s Blizzard by David Laskin. I have to admit, when I first heard the title of this book I immediately thought that it would be a boring read. However, I was sadly mistaken. This book had me on the edge of my seat from the beginning right to the very end. This is a true account of a blizzard that took place in 1888 on a utopia type of homestead. The end result: many lives were lost and those that survived were changed forever.

I would recommend this page turner as a great read, Laskin is an amazing author who has the ability to take you on the story with him.

Until next week…
