    Oh Lord, she is breaking. And she is all alone. Hopeless. Please don’t make us suffer too long with her.

    Ahh…the moment we have been waiting for, for three long months, is finally here! How many times have I assured myself that Benson (although I still thought his name was Taylor at the time) was the one who wrote the note? I simply had to believe that he gave her the letters to help her understand the man we all KNOW.

    I am so thrilled to have finally embarked on the second part of our journey. Of course, “a journey of a thousand miles begins with one single step.” Oh, how I wish Elisa would begin that journey with her precious Summa Cum Laude tennis shoes; however, I trust deeply in the power of Elisa and Aiden’s love. I know that, eventually, she will walk in their beauty once more.

    More excitement, at least for me! We have a title. Perhaps you had told us this before, but I am certain I missed it. What a delicious idea—90 Nights of Hale.

    Thank you once more, for sharing, your beautiful characters and story with us. And, thank you so much for continuing on with their journey!

    90 DAYS of Hale! Dang the not being able to figure out how to go back while typing! It always messes me up. Anyway, despite my absolute joy at the idea that we have finally begun our new journey—I am heartbroken for Elisa’s pain. Her pain is visible to us, but I am also so tormented by the pain Aiden and Javier must be feeling. Oh, the joy of returning to that exquisite mixture of fear, hope, loss, and anticipation that can only be 30 Nights and 90 Days.

    Her pain brought me to tears. Tragedy upon tragedy has been put upon her shoulders. The weight now unbearable. Somehow this is worse than the death of her parents, since that was an accident and had a finality. This pain continuously multiplies with no end. Seeing her this way is breaking my heart. I hope 90 Days of Hale is very, very close.
    Thank you, Ani. This was most definitely something special. ; )

  7. Nan Virden says:

    An outstanding beginning to a fabulous sequel. Your writing is so beautiful. So touching and real. I felt as if I was with Elisa on the plane; feel her sorrow, her despair, her anguish. I clenched my fist along with hers, screamed from the same painful blisters. Felt the same anger for the man she loved, bitterness for his detestable actions and sadness of Javier and his families fate. Shed the same tears.

    Thank you again, Ani for this wonderful gift. Looking forward the the next chapters.

  8. AnnaDV23 says:

    I can’t wait for 90 Days of Hale! great title for a great story! it’s so heartbreaking to read the prologue cause we really feel the hurt Elise is feeling T_T haha can’t wait for the next chapters!! 🙂

  9. Huneza says:

    I stayed up all night, hoping to discover the surprise. Unfortunately, sleep got the better of me, but I can assure you, your book was the first thing that came into my mind when I woke up.

    Now this prologue has me even more desperate for the next book. It’s beautifully written, as always. Only you can write grief with the proper skill. I can feel Elisa’s sorrow, anguish, and every emotion that a person hopes to stay clear of through your writing. Now as much as I would love to hold both of your books in my hand, I’m worried they’ll be splattered with tears.

    Thank you for everything.

    Ani, several times I’ve told you that their are a few literary heroines that I hold dear to my heart. One is named Piccola Breedlove, the other is simply called Lilith and the other is Elisa Snow. Even before I knew her name, I loved her because I knew this was a girl that was filled with pure, natural love. She is everything I hope my daughter will be and more. Only a person, who loves deeply, with everything she has can be as hurt and devastated as Elisa is in this chapter. She’s given herself to her true love and she has been obliterated because of her loss. I’m so hurt for her. I’m so sad. I just want to wrap my arms around her, protect her from the world and tell her it will be okay. That eventually the hurt will go away. And that as long as she holds on to a bit of her true self, she will recover from this stronger than she was before. As hard as it is, and as much pain as she is in, in a way, Elisa needed this. She was running from her reality. God only knows if she would’ve returned to England again. Now, her true journey begins. Survival in the face of insurmountable suffering is the true testament of her will and her strength as a woman. She’s hurt, she’s in pain, but I have faith in her.

    As for your writing, my oh my. You’ve completely awed me and elevated yourself into a realm that’s usually reserved for my favorite writing legends. Your writing simply speaks to the soul. No pretension, no frills. Just honest, soulful writing that gets to the heart of life. The opening was my favorite. How sadly true.

    “The last breath is similar to the first one, they say. Violent on the lungs, thirsting for life. But as the gasp of air leaves my mouth, I understand the difference. For the first breath, there is always someone waiting.”

  11. Cho says:

    I have so looked forward to the continuation of what continuations my favorite of all favorites! Thank you for posting the original with the proper names of the characters, and the new material ( I may forgive Aiden his betrayal as I glimpse his suffering, but I won’t forget it!) I love Elisa for her strength and integrity to risk everything for her family.

  12. hardpouncing says:

    Marvelous beginning. It feels like I have waited so long for this next installment.

    Poor Ana / Elisa = she is just torn completely apart. Will she return to being the very intelligent and accomplished chemist / inventor, or the frightened and in-stasis girl Christian / Haiden re-created. Interesting that Benson / Taylor has sent those envelopes.

    I will wait anxiously for the next installment!

  13. Wattle says:

    Oh my.
    My heart broke with a huge crack this morning reading this, 90 days….. 30 days was bad enough for her….90… the number keeps ringing through my brain, 3 times as long, the pain now 3 times as much for her, the Solis’s and for Aiden.
    Thank goodness for small miracles, the stewardess being caring.
    Please don’t let her give away the shoes, please let them be a positive reminder of the steps she’s trodden so far.
    Thank goodness for Benson putting in the letters with that note “hope that they will remind you of the man you know, not the one you saw today. ” It shows he understands how important she is and I have absolutely no doubt that he will be working on that side to bring them back together.
    Thank goodness Reagan is going there in 2 weeks, she has something to look forward to at least.

    Beautiful, just beautiful writing, I am so looking forward to book two. You are a master crafter with words, I bow to you and just want to share you with the world!

  14. icalyn says:

    That was heartbreaking and absolutely wonderful!! I cannot wait to see where the story takes both of these people I’ve grown to love so much!

  15. Annie says:

    Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

    90 Days of Hale – the perfect complement to 30 Nights of Snow. Ani – your mind works in wonderous ways and your stories just keep marinating in my mind. The prologue we all have been anxiously awaiting is nowhere near the depths of pain for Elisa. Hauntingly beautiful start and I cannot wait to uncover more.

  16. Lillimarlene says:

    Beautiful and heartbreaking. I can’t wait to read the first chapter of 90 days of Hale. Heartbroken though she is, she needs this time in England to reconnect with her past.

  17. linda says:

    great writing, great title, great characters. I, too, am impatient to read 90 days of Hale and see what you have planned for these characters!

  18. Andrea. And1rea. Andrea Fanfiction says:

    My heart is breaking for Elisa!!!! What a reaction to the British air and those tennis shoes. 🙁 Really glad Benson sent the letters and wrote the note. Yes study it and reflect on the Aiden you KNOW Isa. That will bring truth and hopefully someday comfort and peace.

    Oh how I look forward to this entire book (#2) being released and holding it in my hands!!!! Great job Ani!!

  19. Mercia says:

    I do not know why I remain so amazed at the story/s you unfold, day by day. You have a talent, many only dream of. It is becoming a daily delight to check my email.
    I wondered why, you chose, Snowshill as Elisa’s village? Perhaps, the name? I always think of Snowshill as the place where time stood still. It, like your story, is enchanting!

  20. twinkie55 says:

    Thank you for this but I would like to finish reading 30 Nights of Snow. I really like the story but do not know how to get all the chapters open. I also like Hale POV.

    You are a Great writer.

      T, if you look at my website, there is a tab/page called 30 Nights of Snow. You will see the story there. I will be updating the chapters there daily. So you will get to read it. Let me know if you get it to work and it makes sense. Or if you have any questions. Thanks!!

      • ncst8chic says:

        Other than here is there a place to read 30 in its entirety? I love what I have read so far and now the sequel! I feel so behind!!!


      • asurnois says:


        I will be posting all the chapters on the blog on a daily basis for those who didn’t get a chance to catch up with it before and for my regular readers who want to read it again. Right now, I have the first 12 chapters up. There will be a new one every day (there are 41 total). But my regular readers had been waiting for a while for the prologue of the sequel so I expedited it for today. I am glad you are enjoying my story! Thanks for reviewing. – Ani

  21. Née says:

    I absolutely love the title…it is so fitting. I am beyond anxious for book 2 to be written. I fully enjoyed the journey of 30 nights and I can’t wait to embark upon the quest of 90 days. You are an amazing writer, never forget that. Your gift of writing carries on, even when the last page is turned. Thank You!

  22. yankees2446 says:

    Where do I begin? As a literature teacher I find your work compelling, breathtaking, and a work of art. As a woman, I find it heartbreaking. For three long months I waited for my email to ping with this prologue. You have an amazing gift and I thank you for sharing it with all of us.

  23. Sandy says:

    I can’t say much that hadn’t already been said by the other commentors. Your writing brings me to tears it is so beautiful. What a gift you have. What a gift we get each time you write.
    Thank you

  24. Kat says:

  25. Tammy says:

  28. Soumia Soussou says:

    Waw j’ai vraiment adoré, et je suis morte d’impatience de lire plus 🙂
    Je trouve votre histoire digne d’être publier et reconnu Bonne continuation ^_^

  29. carriej56 says:

    I love your work Ani! You can feel your guts wrenching for Elisa, her pain is tangible, it’s an amazing start to follow your amazing story! I can’t wait for more!

  30. Cynthia says:

    OMG I love this…. I do believe poor Elise is having a nervous breakdown. My heart breaks for her, and I am sure it will for Aiden when we see what is going on with him. I do hope you update soon.

  31. Mari says:

    The beginning of the second book is also enthralling, continuing the suspense and wonderful characterizations that you began in your first. I can’t wait for more and more and more. These characters are extremely real and I am absolutely in terror for Javier. And of course Aiden is a character truly unlike any other I’ve encountered…his selfish act at the end of the first book left me breathless and heartbroken. (Altho I suspect he also has something to do with Javier’s lawyer) So please write on and never be discouraged because your talent is there.

  32. contrite shadow says:

    Told you; post where you want, and I’ll read it. This one is irretrievably sad, but just as beautiful as ever. Thank you.

  33. PurpleAle says:

    I finally decided to allow myself to read this, and there’s no turning back for me. I’m wholly invested once again (I was able to temper my desire for this story enough so that I could function day-to-day without your Sunday updates of months past – now that is gone and I’m a big ‘ol mess again), my entire being entwined with this story I just cannot get enough. I don’t know how I’ll last without reading this in its entirety right.this.minute. but alas I must practice patience.

    This prologue was very visceral with the emphasis on what she was feeling: the Valium stupor, the tight hold she keeps on Benson’s letter, the unrelenting ulcer eating away at her from the inside out. It makes me think of how perhaps her thoughts and her mind have yet to join her, how she reacted so quickly to what she thinks Aiden did that she has yet to come to terms with what she’s done because in the moment all she can focus on is this emotional turmoil haunting her. The fact that she’s rejected the thought of returning ‘home’ so much so that even physically her body is rejecting it, unwilling to accept that she’s back here makes this harder to read, her reactions so vivid. I hope the meaning of Benson’s letter (to remember the man SHE knows) will click sooner rather than later. I wish for some comforts to find her as she returns to this place alone with all the pain and sadness it carries for her, and the kindness of strangers was a beautiful foray into that.

    I can’t wait for more! xoxo
