"[A]n enchanting wintertime read... fierce and otherworldly[.]" * Psychologies Magazine *
"Wonderfully inventive" * Heat Magazine *
"Arden's debut novel has the cadence of a beautiful fairy tale but is darker and more lyrical. The novel is deceptively simple, but its characters and plot are sophisticated and complex. Arden explores what happens when fear and ignorance whip people into a furore, and how society can be persuaded to act against its own interests so easily. It's a rather apt tale for our times." * Washington Post *
"An extraordinary retelling of a very old tale. A Russian setting adds a unfamiliar spice to the story of a young woman who does not rebel against the limits of her role in her culture so much as transcend them. A wonderfully layered novel of family roles and the harsh wonders of deep winter magic." -- Robin Hobb
