Invisible Snow in a Nutshell
by Quinn Barrett
Kate Snow married the wrong man for the wrong reasons. Paul Delacroix was smitten with Kate the first time he laid eyes on her and was willing to do anything to have her. Raised in a large, impoverished family near the slopes of Sun Valley, Idaho, Kate was once a child skiing prodigy with dreams of greatness, but fate derailed her ambition when she least expected it.
Paul was the sole heir to his family’s Los Angeles-based business—an international distributor of premium alcohol. Despite her Mormon heritage, Kate’s family enthusiastically supported their union because Paul was happy to bankroll her family’s future financial security. Kate found it hard to decline his proposal knowing her decision affected her struggling family. She married Paul to lighten everyone’s burden but her own.
After 19 years, Kate has become a beautiful, socialite wife and mother of three, but is finally realizing the gravity of her choice to marry a man she didn’t love. Most thought it was a fairy tale romance, but it wasn’t.
Paul was addicted to power and control. Kate’s survival techniques were denial and compliance. She went along to get along and became invisible in her own life. Their marriage began to unravel when she accidentally discovered a mysterious, private safe room, which harbored her husband’s darkest secrets.
As Kate begins to awaken to the reality of her marriage, she also discovers the paradoxes of her own life choices. She leaves the insulation of her Bel Air estate and returns to her roots in Idaho, a journey that changes her life.
Along the way, she enlists the aid and support of various women who offer wisdom, strength and security—essentially giving her a crash course in awareness. She is a modern day Dorothy on a journey of empowerment. Daring to challenge her husband’s authority, Kate’s life is transformed from obliviousness to understanding.
While skiing in Utah, Kate begins to remember who she is and reconnects to the strength within her. She is ready to take on the secrets controlling her. For the first time in her adult life, she feels powerful. Kate returns home, resolved to reclaim her life from her egomaniac husband. But nothing can prepare her for the labyrinth of deceit that awaits her.
Paul is equally determined to re-establish the boundaries of his strict dominion and is willing to use any means necessary to keep all that he owns. The legacy of the family business is at stake, but power is not always about money. Kate and Paul’s confrontation results in a shocking twist of fate—a destiny Kate never saw coming.
Invisible Snow is a classic family drama about wealth, control, greed, and redemption. Marriage is a delicate dance of power between lovers, but Kate and Paul are strangers caught in a disparate union between betrayal and truth. Facing their true selves for the first time results in an epic clash of wills where only one will prevail.
