Swedish Lapland, 1717. Maj, her husband Jan-Erik and her daughters Frederika and Marit arrive from their native Finland, hoping to forget the traumas of their past and put down new roots in this harsh but beautiful land. Above them looms BlackŒsen, a mountain whose foreboding presence looms over the valley and whose dark history seems to haunt the lives of those who live in its shadow. While herding the familyÕs goats on the mountain, Frederika happens upon the mutilated body of one of their neighbors, Eriksson. The death is dismissed as a wolf attack, but Maj feels certain that the wounds could only have been inflicted by another man. Compelled to investigate despite her neighborsÕ strange disinterest in the death and the fate of ErikssonÕs widow, Maj is drawn into the dark history of tragedies and betrayals that have taken place on BlackŒsen. Young Frederika finds herself pulled towards the mountain as well, feeling something none of the adults around her seem to notice. As the seasons change, and the Òwolf winter,Ó the harshest winter in memory, descends upon the settlers, Jan-Erik travels to find work, and Maj finds herself struggling for her familyÕs survival in this land of winter-long darkness. As the snow gathers, the settlersÕ secrets are increasingly laid bare. Scarce resources and the never-ending darkness force them to come together, but Maj, not knowing who to trust and who may betray her, is determined to find the answers for herself. Soon, Maj discovers the true cost of survival under the mountain, and what it will take to make it to spring.

The Wolf in Winter, A Story of St. Francis of Assisi by John R. Sack.A beautifully written story of the early life of St. Francis as he struggled to discover his vocation, befriended a wolf, and worked with lepers. John R. Sack was born in Springfield, Ohio. He earned a BA in English from Yale University and an MA in Creative Writing from the University of Washington. As a young man, John spent two years as a Trappist monk studying with Thomas Merton, his novice master at Our Lady of Gethsemane Abbey in Kentucky. He later trained in a Hindu ashram in Ganeshpuri, India. Spiritual awakening and transformation are common themes in both his fiction and nonfiction books. He is the author of the internationally acclaimed novel, The Franciscan Conspiracy, and its companion work, Angel's Passage. The Wolf in Winter is a fictional tale of the early career of Francis of Assisi. His nonfiction Yearning for the Father, a guide to contemplative prayer, is the culmination of years of research and reflection on the Lord's Prayer and his exploration of numerous spiritual traditions. Trappist Tales is a collection of short stories based on his monastic experience. John currently lives in southern Oregon with his wife, author Christin Lore Weber.
