The three sisters looked forward to ice skating. It was their favorite element about winter in Michigan. In the spring, summer, and fall they enjoyed long walks throughout town and hikes in the nearby woods. Covered from head to toe for protection from the winter cold, their feminine clothing masked strong, muscular limbs.
The three were spinsters; they made a living tutoring young people in their town and writing poetry and articles for women's magazines in the United States. They lived with their aged parents in a vast old Victorian.
Today as they headed to the frozen pond they had no idea their lives would change forever. Today they would meet the Miller brothers---three bachelors who enjoyed ice skating and were visiting family in the area.
