The Snow Child, by Eowyn Ivey
“Mabel and Jack are a homesteading couple in the unforgiving Alaskan wilderness whose bitter lives change the moment they encounter Faina, the primitive child they may or may not have conjured out of fresh snow and longing. An incredibly moving retelling of a Russian fairly tale. Absolutely haunting from page one.”
—Paula McLain’s second novel is The Paris Wife, recently released in paperback ($15, amazon.com).
