A private plane with six people aboard crashes on a snow-covered, frozen mountain side. The survivors face starvation and freezing temperatures. Food and shelter must be found immediately. In order to survive they must work together and overcome the animosity and distrust between them. The tensions among them rise from the secrets in their pasts, for none are who or what they claim to be. Compounding their difficulties is the growing awareness that someone does not want them rescued, and is determined they never be found. Because life in a small town can sometimes be humdrum for a senior citizen, Rita Nesbitt loves living vicariously in the dangerous and adventurous lives of her characters. She also loves seeing them come to the knowledge of Jesus. Writing is a joy and a challenge for her. One challenge met was winning an honorable mention in a Writer's Digest short story competition. For the past twenty-two years she has written a humorous word definition column for several weekly newspapers. That, she says, is evidence she can't be serious about life - too many things to laugh at.
