On The Table Read Magazine, “the best book magazine in the UK“, in The Color Of Frost by Kasey Rogers, following the break up of her marriage, Nina DeMarco discovers a box of letters in her attic and sets out to find the woman who wrote them.
The Color Of Frost
The Color of Frost captivates with its immersive narrative and delivers a surprising and encouraging conclusion while sharing the protagonist’s feelings of hopelessness and futility after her marriage to a financially abusive husband ended.
Nina DeMarco, the main character in Kasey Rogers’ captivating and intriguing novel, is written in eloquent and thoughtful prose, and the story will resonate with many readers. However, despite sharing Nina’s genuine, unfiltered emotions, an unexpected twist in her story serves as the catalyst for her transformation and redefining of herself.
This is one of those books that touches the soul while crossing genres (mystery and historical fiction). and perfectly satisfies the requirements of anyone looking for an original read that will elicit discussion in their book club.
Nina DeMarco is a twenty-seven-year-old adoptee who struggles with anxiety and depression. After she discovers a collection of letters, hidden in the crawlspace of her new attic apartment, she challenges herself to locate the owner.
Nina begins to overcome the despair she has experienced as a result of her failed marriage, as her feeling of a connection to the mysterious Lilia Michaud, the person who wrote the letters and used to live there, grows. Nina becomes fascinated by Lilia’s unconventional life, despite the fact that the two women were born decades apart. Lilia escaped an abusive guardian when her uncle came to rescue her.
The Color Of Frost switches back and forth between Nina’s story, which happens in 1974, and that of Lilia all through times of her life that she archives in the letters. However, unanticipated connections between the two women emerge as common threads. The year 1974 serves as a bridge between the reader and pertinent themes that are prominently featured in today’s headlines in The Color of Frost, which is both a mystery and historical fiction.
Kasey Rogers, the author, explained that her memoir, Our Better Selves: From Secrets and Lies to Healing and Forgiveness, and new book, The Color Of Frost, were written to reveal the experiences of women impacted by financially abusive relationships. Additionally, they provide insight into how mental health affects one’s outlook on life and choices, and deal with the raw emotions of depression and anxiety. The goal of Kasey’s writing is to use these works as a platform to show how abusers can use money to get power and control in a relationship.
Kasey Rogers worked in New York City’s commercial film industry for the majority of her early career, writing a musical in between projects. She switched gears to follow another passion, cooking, after her twins were born. She and her late husband turned a vacation home in Alexandria, Ontario, into a restaurant because of this passion.
Now that the twins are grown-up, she has moved back to the US and is using her writing to bring attention to the effect of financial abuse.
