Broken by cancer and the failure of her marriage, she visits Israel, seeking direction and new meaning for her life. As a Jew, she is amazed when she has a profound spiritual experience in a Jerusalem church, where she’s not even supposed to be.
Her experience of Christian worship and the prophecies she receives there mark the start of a chain of supernatural events, through which God reveals His purposes to her.
Like biblical Ruth, she is claimed in the Land of Israel. Like her, she will need to find the courage to set out from her homeland for a strange land — in Bobbie’s case from England to Atlantic Canada — if she is to meet and marry her Boaz and rebuild her life.
She Does Not Fear the Snow is an uplifting and moving account of one woman’s spiritual transformation and the blessings that flow from it.

What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Get a personalized close edit of anything you want to publish before publishing it. I’m not talking merely about punctuation and spelling. The edit I got told me everything that was missing and everything that was too much, as well as everything that was confusing. It pointed out all my cliches.
It led me to rewrites that led to publishing with confidence.
It also taught me more about what needed to be done to improve my own writing in general than any expensive course I’ve ever been on.
