It's summer in Toronto, and the snow and ice are relentless. Too bad no one but Avery can see it.

Avery Gauthier can't get far enough away from her past: the death of her beloved father, the abuse she suffered as a teen, and the religion that tore her parents apart. A reality-refugee, she's managed to keep the chaos of her former life at bay... until now.

When her husband returns to the Jehovah's Witnesses, her estranged mother wants back in, and the snow (invisible to everyone but Avery) piles up and up and up, Avery is forced to face her greatest fears. She looks to the outside for help, to her mysterious superintendent and the comforts of a local weatherman, only to realize that the solutions lie where the problem does: within.

A twisted, darkly funny and redemptive tale, The Weather Inside will leave you wondering where the line is drawn between what's real and what's imagined, and why Armageddon isn't always the end of the world.

Emily Saso writes fiction and screenplays. She lives in Toronto and blogs at egoburn.blogspot.ca. The Weather Inside is her debut novel.

"The Weather Inside is a mighty examination of faith and love. Saso masterfully shows why these are two different words. Gritty and heartfelt and hilarious in all the right places, this book is a gift for readers who are looking for something fresh." - Bradley Somer, author of Fishbowl

"A debut novel that is both heartbreaking and hilarious. Emily Saso is a unique and daring new voice." - Rebecca Rosenblum, author of The Big Dream
