Description

A bewitching tale of heartbreak and hope set in 1920s Alaska, Eowyn Ivey's THE SNOW CHILD was a top ten bestseller in hardback and paperback, and went on to be a Finalist for the Pulitzer Prize.

Alaska, the 1920s. Jack and Mabel have staked everything on a fresh start in a remote homestead, but the wilderness is a stark place, and Mabel is haunted by the baby she lost many years before. When a little girl appears mysteriously on their land, each is filled with wonder, but also foreboding: is she what she seems, and can they find room in their hearts for her?

Written with the clarity and vividness of the Russian fairy tale from which it takes its inspiration, The Snow Child is an instant classic.

    This book is so enchanting & so well written I felt as though as was there through every phase of the very sad, hard and happy times of Mabel, Jack & Faina's trials. Beautiful.

    Alaska is a harsh environment but this writer gives a glimpse of its beauty too. Her powers of description make the snow child real and ethereal at the same time. One feels the call of the wild entwined with everyday life. I loved it.

    Based on a Russian fairy tale, this book was just about the most delightful story I have ever read. I felt I was in the story with the characters, it was so clearly described. I enjoyed every moment of it. Beginning with the building of the Snow Girl one night by the two main characters, and following on with the possibility that she came to life. As other characters were drawn into the story, it only added to the beautifully described landscape of Alaska. I could leave this book for a couple of years, then read it again. So wonderful I didn't want it to end. Well worth a read, you won't forget it.

    A book so good you cannot stop reading, the only problem is that it comes to an end. Beautifully written.
