A fabulous read
on 27 September 2013
I have a print copy of this novel which has been on my keeper shelf for a long time. I re-read this story every few years and it has never lost its appeal for me. Elizabeth Gill always writes strong (in the sense of vivid, there-on-the-page, believable and appealing) male characters, and tormented, conflicted Gillan is one of her best.
The story is full of fantastic descriptions of the North Country, where Elizabeth Gill herself has always lived, and which she clearly loves with all her heart. She takes the reader there. Do read this novel, and imagine you are Gillan, making angels in the snow.
