A bewitching tale of heartbreak and hope set in 1920s Alaska, 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.

“The Snow Child”

Enchanting! for lovers of pure and honest reading. It's the best read I have had in a very long time. The description is done with such vision that you feel that you have visited Alaska. A fairy tale for adults.
