The Snow Child

Eowyn Ivey

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.
