Sinopsis:

A Debut Fiction Choice from the Book People, The Snow Child is a unique and unforgettable novel that explores the complexities of parenting in an unforgettable way. As read by Miranda Richardson on Radio 4, the gentle story is interwoven with myth and fairy tale and has the power to sadden, delight and surprise you in equal measure. Jack and Mabel have staked everything on making a fresh start in the Alaskan wilderness, but as days grow shorter, life is still a struggle. When the first snow falls, the couple find themselves building a snowman - or rather a snow girl - in a moment of tenderness. The next morning, all trace of her has disappeared, but Jack can't quite shake the notion that he glimpsed a child in the dawn light...this is a delightful and enlightening read that will appeal to fans of The Time Traveler's Wife.

Críticas:

'This book is real magic, shot through from cover to cover with the cold, wild beauty of the Alaskan frontier. Eowyn Ivey writes with all the captivating delicacy of the snowfalls she so beautifully describes' (Ali Shaw, author of The Girl With Glass Feet)

'If Willa Cather and Gabriel Garcia Marquez had collaborated on a book, THE SNOW CHILD would be it' (Robert Goolrick, author of A Reliable Wife )

'An enchanting tale of isolation, hope and love' (Woman and Home)

'a magical, heartbreaking story... gorgeous' (Marie Claire)

'A mystical tale of heartbreak and hope' (InStyle)

'an original and magical debut' (Good Housekeeping)

'a stunning debut novel' (Reader's Digest)

'It's beautifully written, imaginative and the story expresses real human emotions of love and loss... I think this could be one to win lots of prizes this year' (Essentials Magazine)

"Ivey grew up in Alaska, and still lives there with her family, and it's the harsh beauty of the landscape that gives this stunning first novel its unique shape and atmosphere" (The Times)

"what sets Ivey's brand of magicial realism apart if her ability to convey, in prose as crystalline as a snowflake, the wildness of the frozen land and the privations suffered by settlers trying to make their lives there. Her Alaskan landscape is a place of such extreme beauty and cruelty that the fairy tale its heart is only one of the spells it casts." (Metro)

"it is the magic and not the realism that will sell a million copies of this book... calls to mind another debut The Time Traveller's Wife, whose readership this book aims (rightly and deservedly) to captivate" (The Spectator)

"Taking its genesis from an old Russian fairy tale, the author fleshes out her story of emotional and geographical desolation and of enduring suffering and loss, with a terrific combination of toughness and delicacy." (Sunday Times)

"It is an exceptional book that deserves to melt millions of hearts" (Sunday Express)

"enchanting tale of love, hope and survival in the frozen North" (Daily Mail)
