Product description

Review

'This book is real magic, shot through from cover to cover with the cold, wild beauty of the Alaskan frontier. Eowyn Ivey writes with all the captivating delicacy of the snowfalls she so beautifully describes' (Ali Shaw, author of The Girl With Glass Feet)

'If Willa Cather and Gabriel Garcia Marquez had collaborated on a book, THE SNOW CHILD would be it' (Robert Goolrick, author of A Reliable Wife )

'An enchanting tale of isolation, hope and love' (Woman and Home)

'a magical, heartbreaking story... gorgeous' (Marie Claire)

'A mystical tale of heartbreak and hope' (InStyle)

'an original and magical debut' (Good Housekeeping)

'a stunning debut novel' (Reader's Digest)

'It's beautifully written, imaginative and the story expresses real human emotions of love and loss... I think this could be one to win lots of prizes this year' (Essentials Magazine)

"Ivey grew up in Alaska, and still lives there with her family, and it's the harsh beauty of the landscape that gives this stunning first novel its unique shape and atmosphere" (The Times)

"what sets Ivey's brand of magicial realism apart if her ability to convey, in prose as crystalline as a snowflake, the wildness of the frozen land and the privations suffered by settlers trying to make their lives there. Her Alaskan landscape is a place of such extreme beauty and cruelty that the fairy tale its heart is only one of the spells it casts." (Metro)

Book Description

A magical novel with a distinctly grown-up sensibility, THE SNOW CHILD will appeal to fans of imaginative reading group fiction, such as THE TIME TRAVELER'S WIFE, THE LOVELY BONES and THE BOOK THIEF
