The Great White Storm
"Whitney Hamilton's second novel is a stunning tale of three New York couples: a man and wife during the birth of New York City; the wealthy 19th century Victoria and her husband, painter and one-time rogue, Richard Rhys who left England after Rhys was falsely accused of being Jack the Ripper (Hamilton's film "A Rogue in Londinium" serves as a sort of prequel to this novel). Now the couple struggles to survive the great New York blizzard of 1888;
...and the modern day Ashley, a southern-born female painter who finds herself falling in love with the writer who comes to interview her. The three couples, guided by the mysterious Ansa, must each fulfill a unique fate. Hamilton works in themes of both same-sex and straight love, alchemy, and how the actions of one person can significantly change the world. In Hamilton's magical New York world, all time is porous, leaving the characters to interact with each other as they struggle to overcome odds. Each couple somehow feels the impact of the couple that came before. If you enjoyed the literary mystery of A.S. Byatt's "Possession," or Audrey Niffenegger's "The Time Traveler's Wife," you'll love this magical twist on history, true love, magic, and the nature of time." Amazon Customer
