Snow Day :  A Novel

   
Author: Billy Coffey 

Awakened by radio broadcasts urging the residents of a small Virginia town to take a snow day rather than travel to school and work, Peter Boyd finds himself with both an unexpected day off and an opportunity to find big truths in small moments and surprise encounters. Peter believes he has a good life, with a decent job and a family he loves. But he’s quietly worried he’ll be cut when downsizing takes effect at the factory, his family will lose the home they love, and his faith will crumble along with his bank account. Through the course of one day, Peter finds himself revisiting his past through old friends, finding out there is a Santa Claus—though he drives a truck instead of a sleigh—and rediscovering that whatever comes in life, hope is the only choice that makes sense. Debut novelist Billy Coffey offers a heartwarming and beautifully story about the faithful way God speaks even when we won’t listen. Like Peter, you’ll reaffirm that faith is worth having and your worst fears are no match for an astounding, loving God.

Review:   
"Tim Gregory draws listeners into the poignant story of Peter Boyd. He contrasts Boyd’s lifted spirits when an unexpected storm gives him a “snow day” with his ongoing fear of a factory layoff at Christmas. Sounding personally involved, Gregory recounts Boyd’s chance meetings with family, friends, and strangers in the park, the grocery store, and other locations in a small Virginia town. Gregory engages the listener with Boyd’s inner experiences—from his renewed sense of faith and purpose to his rediscovery of the wonder and magic of Christmas. The exquisite portrayal of the importance of life’s simple virtues quietly dramatizes how one man learns that what’s “under the Christmas tree is not as important as who’s around the tree.”
