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