Endorsements

"Winter Break, on one level, is a classic coming-of-age story. The heroine undergoes a series of trials which form her character. But Fitzgerald sets the bar higher, moving from the ethical to the metaphysical. Her novel investigates a much-neglected facet of adolescence — an appetite for the spiritual and an openness to it. Fast-paced, suspenseful, and inspiring, Winter Break is the perfect mix of entertainment and instruction." —Ann Arensberg, author of Incubus and Sister Wolf

"This book is written in such a way that each scene becomes memorable — the stunning descriptions of the snowy slopes of Switzerland, a love story sensitively told, and clear spiritual insights. Winter Break is a pleasure to read and a reminder that there is a way of living and being open to young people that is not only different from what is often practiced but is also life-enhancing and ultimately joyful. —Katharine Le Mée, author of Chant and The Benedictine Gift to Music.

"Winter Break is a captivating mystical tale that will appeal to readers of all ages. Fitzgerald deftly makes even the most sophisticated spiritual mysteries accessible to seekers of every level. But if what you're seeking is simply a great story, you've found it. A delight! Enjoy." —Deborah Medenbach, writer/yoga teacher
