“This love story, set in Alaska, is really a love story about Alaska. Ivey describes the achingly beautiful landscape without making it seem an easy place to live. Based on an old fairy tale, this is the story of a childless couple who make a snow child one evening only to find a real little girl the next day. As the girl grows through the years, we know that this enchanting story will have the twists that we have come to expect with tales that teach us lessons about life. Friendships, marriage, parenthood, and survival -- all set in an unforgiving but entrancing landscape. I loved it!”
— Valerie Koehler, Blue Willow Bookshop, Houston, TX

I know, another “Snow” book?  But not really.  Based on an old fairy tale, and involving brutal homesteading in 1920’s Alaska, an older childless couple builds a snow girl during a playful mood while trying to survive the harsh realities of their Alaskan wilderness. As the snow girl has disappeared and a little wild girl wearing the accessories they had used has been sighted at the edge of the forest in the untamed wild, an enchanting relationship begins to form as she becomes a true daughter to them, in their eyes.Your heart will be touched as this book gallops along, allowing us to pause at the wonder of life, even its disappointments, and at the world in which we live and love!
