The Snow Child
I really, really enjoyed this novel.
I got it at West Bank Books a few months back, after reading the enclosed book mark from a staff member and after getting high praise from the book while in the store.
This novel is Ivey’s first, but she is a seasoned writer. The prose is lush and evocative of the Alaska she loves.
The story is set in the 1920s among Alaskan homesteaders and uses a Russian fairy tale of a snow child to weave an engrossing read.
