Dotson: ‘Whiter than Snow’ a captivating dramatic tale

Sandra Dallas’s newest novel, “Whiter than Snow,” is just as epic as her other novels. Dallas stays true to telling stories of small towns and families coming together during times of tragedy. In “Whiter than Snow,” nine children are buried during a devastating avalanche in the fictional mining town of Swandyce, Colo., in 1920. The lives of the families involved individually unfold through each chapter, and during the avalanche rescue efforts, the people’s differences are put aside and a community is formed.
