Sunday Review: The Children’s Blizzard by Melanie Benjamin


This novel is based on true historical events that I knew about from working on history textbooks, so I was anxious to read it. Unlike her other books, Benjamin writes about mostly fictional characters in this one. The story is gripping and horrifying. Think about “To Build a Fire” on a vast scale. Honestly, this is my favorite novel of those that I’ve read by this author.
