Steve Thayer has been hailed as "an author who's not afraid to take chances" by The Cleveland Plain Dealer. Now the man behind such bestsellers as The Weatherman presents a work of quiet power and personal triumph. It is the story of Angela, a nine-year-old who can hear the gunshots and see the firelight of the L.A. riots through her bedroom window-and her father Steve, who sees a pair of bright-red cardinals in the brilliant Minnesota snow through his own window a world away. The relationship between the two-and the difficult process of repairing it-are the subject of this tale of separation and sacrifice, regret and reunion-a story that will resonate with anyone who has watched a family break apart, and hoped against hope for the best.
