Any additional comments?
Quite a slow book and at times seem longer than it needs to be but you will find yourself immersed in the story. Well worth listening and one of those rare stories that will stay with you forever. The raw setting is beautifully and poetically presented to the reader and you find yourself rising and falling with the tempo of emotions from dark and depressed to hopeful and elated. Some things are never revealed but you find yourself accepting that.

This was my first audibook and it was truly special. I was very lucky to choose this one as my first.
This is a charming story with wonderful description and imagery. The narrator's soft accent really helps the story along. The emotions of Jack and Mable and the description of the landscape, the animals and the weather are enchanting. This is the perfect listen for a quiet Sunday afternoon. It is a very serene book.

A couple move to Alaska after losing their child. They are getting older, and frontier times are harsh. As the wife sinks into depression, they build a snowchild, only for it to melt away as a young girl is seen in the woods surrounding their cabin. The girl appears to thrive in the cold weather, but is she part of a 'stir crazy/cabin fever' wish on the parents' behalf, mirroring the fairytale of a snowchild the wife loved as a youngster, or is the girl a lost child fending for herself? Nobody else ever sees the child and she seems to disappear once winter has gone...what is really happening?
