This review is from: A Spell of Winter (Paperback)
This is the first book I read of Helen Dunmore. I don't agree with the raving reviews at all. I find her style overly descriptive, there was hardly any dialogue and it was practically impossible to understand the motives of the central characters. I gave up after 143 slow and uninspiring pages and trashed the book.
