Winter Haven is very original, even for Athol Dickson. It's about a woman whose brother washes up on the beach of a nearby island after being lost for fifteen years. The strange part is that his body hasn't aged since he went missing. He finds a great way to make this book suspenseful; as several strange things happen (one of them involving a polar bear); and tasteful while coming to a plausible and realistic ending.
