Slow Dancing in the Snow
by Edward Minges
Marcus is hiding from a violent, unexplained attack on his family in Oregon. Lissa has escaped her bitter, abusive life in West Virginia. On a winter afternoon in Washington, they meet on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial; minutes later, Marcus must leave for home. For six months they talk on the phone, then reunite to begin again. And each is terrified of telling the other who they really are.
