This month you voted, and The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey was the winner!
Alaska, 1920: a brutal place to homestead, and especially tough for recent arrivals Jack and Mabel. Childless, they're drifting apart, he breaking under the weight of the work of the farm; she crumbling from loneliness and despiar. In a moment of levity during the season's first snowfall, they build a child out of snow. The next morning the show child is gone--but they glimpse a young girl running through the trees. But in this beautiful, violent wilderness things are rarely as they appear, and what they eventually learn about Faina will transform all of them. The Snow Child was a Pulitzer Prize finalist and international bestseller.
