BLIZZARD by Phil Stong


Email this review


Take one part- plot pattern -- from O'Hara's THE FARMER'S HOTEL, and three parts- mood and characters and regional background- from his own STATE FAIR, and you have a natural in a story of people caught in a farmhouse by a storm. All of them thought they wanted to be somewhere else. There's a hopeful politician and his spoiled daughter; there's a woman of questionable virtue who thinks she wants one thing and goes after another; there are feuding neighbors; and there's the farmer's granddaughter, heading for a musical career in New York. It is all kept clean and the finale is heartwarming.
