Idea You Can Steal 32 -- An Old Romance

My town finally got snow last week. It lasted a full two days before a freak warm spell melted it all. Here’s a story idea for the next time weather keeps you inside.


A geneaologist uncovers a love triangle between members of three families that now live in separate towns. The descendants that the geneaologist tracks down and interviews are hesistant to talk about it. What painful secrets are the families keeping? What caused them to move? Can the geneaologist piece together the truth?
