Imagine being a little boy with missing parents and a missing brother. Now imagine that those family members had been on a small plane piloted by your father in terrible weather conditions. What would you think? How would you feel? That is exactly the story shared by author Steve Novak in his new book, Blood on the Ice: Based on a True Story of Courage and Determination in the Face of Great Tragedy. More than just the tale of this event, the story also outlines the author's home life and life in the small community in which he grew up. This heartwarming tale of resilience and emergency is one that has the potential of touching anyone who has ever feared the loss of a loved one.

Author Steve Novak has done a great job in portraying the details of this very traumatic situation in a way that the reader will feel as if they are a part of the action. His book is well-paced and has a great balance of background information and action. The reader will definitely want to keep turning the pages to see what will happen next, and Novak's writing style feeds in well with that desire. I am pleased to recommend Blood on the Ice to any reader who enjoys reading true stories about survival, great memoirs, or just a plain good read. I will certainly be keeping my eye out for any work that author Steve Novak presents his readers with next. If it's anything like Blood on the Ice, it will absolutely be worth the read!
