The Snow Child

The Snow Child - Lovely. Explored a time and landscape I'm unfamiliar with but could see and feel in every line. The leisurely pace of the first 2/3 of the book gave way to an urgency in part 3 just when I really needed it to pick up. It was poignant and sad, and a beautiful picture of a life lived.
