Eighty-two-year-old Cal Brenneman is dying. As he lies in his hospital bed, his mind wanders in and out of the past, reliving the events that changed his life — a death in an icy creek, his first love in WWII England, and a violent 1980 morning in Colorado where Cal does something that twenty years later his children find difficult to discuss.Shadowing Cal’s life is the story of Emily Campbell, a Scottish girl whose lover dies in Cal’s WWII ambulance. Just before dying RAF Captain Connor McLaughlin hands a photo of Emily to Cal and pleads with him to deliver to her a tobacco pipe that had once belonged to her father. The return of the pipe sets in motion a chain of events that culminates in a deathbed visit by a millioniare claiming to be Cal’s son.BLINK ONCE TO SPREAD SNOW is a moving story that resonates with the spirit of family and the consequences of love, loss, guilt and betrayal. A story of how Cal Brenneman during the last minutes of his life blinks once and spreads snow one last time.
