&́#x80;œA page-turner, a love story and a vivid drama of man (and woman) against the elements . . . A great read by a wonderful writer.&́#x80; &́#x80;”Newsday When the &́#x80;œStorm of the Century&́#x80; threatens western Maine, Eric closes his office early and heads to the grocery store. In line ahead of him, an unkempt and seemingly unstable young woman comes up short on cash, so Eric offers her twenty bucks and a ride home. Trouble is, Danielle doesn&́#x80;™t really have a home. She&́#x80;™s squatting in a cabin deep in the woods: no electricity, no plumbing, no heat. Eric, with problems of his own, tries to walk away, but finds he can&́#x80;™t. Fending off her mistrust of him, he gets her set up with food, water, and firewood, and departs with relief. But when he climbs back to the road, his car is gone, and in desperation he returns to the cabin. As the storm intensifies, these two lost souls are forced to wait it out together. Deeply moving, frequently funny, The Remedy for Love is a story about the secrets revealed when there is no time or space for anything but the truth. &́#x80;œA superbly grown-uplove story.&́#x80; &́#x80;”Kirkus Reviews, starred review &́#x80;œBrilliant . . . A tale that is as gripping as any Everest expedition--and that is also tender and terrifying and funny and, in the end, so true it seems inevitable.&́#x80; &́#x80;”Peter Heller, author of The Dog Stars and The Painter &́#x80;œRoorbach . . . is at the top of his literary game here. He is masterful in inviting readers along, allowing them to slowly get to know these two strangers as they get to know one another.&́#x80; &́#x80;”Portland (Maine) Press Herald &́#x80;œSnowbound in Maine, two strangers struggle to survive--fighting, flirting, baring secrets. Their sexy, snappy dialogue will keep you racing through.&́#x80; &́#x80;”People &́#x80;œOne of the best novels of this or any year . . . A flat-out funny, sexy, and poignant romantic thriller.&́#x80; &́#x80;”David Abrams, author of Fobbi

Meh. I was excited to read this based on the synopsis I read but this book just didn't do it for me. Weird, stilted dialogue. And a young woman who says things like "yo" and " hey mister". Nobody talks like that! Somehow I didn't hate it enough to put it down. I guess I kept hoping it would get better. But it didn't.

An excellent story and very well written. I was drawn in and enjoyed every moment.
