The Silent Land

The Silent Land
by Graham Joyce

Jake and Zoe are skiing in the French Pyrenees when they are buried in an avalanche. After extricating themselves from the snow they discover the hotel and village are apparently evacuated due to further avalanche dangers, and their cell phones aren't functioning probably due to towers being destroyed. They remain at the hotel waiting for rescue as they begin to make interesting discoveries. A love story of life, memories, regrets, and relationships with Twilight Zone overtones. You immediately believe they are dead but the ending is not what I expected. -- recommended by Charlotte K. - Bennett Martin Public Library
