Written by Max E. Anderson
Eddy Thompson cheated on anything, anytime, anywhere. His hero is John Dillinger, one of the most dangerous bank robbers in American history. It’s winter in Indiana and Christmas break is almost here. Finally, school is out. After Christmas, Eddy’s father invites Chet, Rusty, and their fathers to drive up to a cabin he owns on Wolf Lake, in Michigan, for ice fishing, tobogganing, and winter fun in the snow.
But something happens up at Wolf Lake that will change Eddie’s life. It isn’t the brutal cold. It isn’t when Eddy falls through the ice. It isn’t even when two scary men arrive at their remote cabin. The boys’ fathers go fishing and leave them to build a snow fort along the back fence.
It’s dark when two real bank robbers show up, on the other side of that fence, as police sirens race toward them. They toss their stolen cash over the fence, hoping to come back for it later.
Eddie the cheater wants to keep it, and that’s when their troubles really begin. With so much danger closing in and with the help of his friends, Eddy realizes how wrong it is to cheat.
But the danger doesn’t end there. After the boys return from Wolf Lake, and are alone for New Years’ Eve, they find that home might not be the safest place, either.

Abby and Manny Blair anticipate the birth of their first child. Nausea plagues Abby every morning, and fears keep her awake at night. Orphaned at age eighteen, she prays daily for a safe delivery and a future with her child.
Now more than ever, Manny yearns for guidance from his own father. Good news can’t share good news with a man who’s been dead for years.

But the impending responsibility of fatherhood looms over Manny like a storm cloud. He fears he will fail his young family. So many questions surround his father’s death. The desire to know what happened, to understand why Mark left him behind, overwhelms Manny. It’s nearing Christmas and the babe’s birth. He sets out on an adventure of discovery and finds something completely unexpected. Abby and Manny receive a precious gift—learning about the love and sacrifice only a father can give.
