Alaska, 1920: a brutal place to homestead, and especially tough for recent arrivals Jack and Mabel. Childless, they are drifting apart--he breaking under the weight of the work of the farm; she crumbling from loneliness and despair. In a moment of levity during the season's first snowfall, they build a child out of snow. The next morning the snow child is gone--but they glimpse a young, blonde-haired girl running through the trees.

This little girl, who calls herself Faina, seems to be a child of the woods. She hunts with a red fox at her side, skims lightly across the snow, and somehow survives alone in the Alaskan wilderness. As Jack and Mabel struggle to understand this child who could have stepped from the pages of a fairy tale, they come to love her as their own daughter. But in this beautiful, violent place things are rarely as they appear, and what they eventually learn about Faina will transform all of them.

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:

This book is intended to be released as Team Nangijalas contribution in the event Hockey in the 2013 Bookcrossing Olympics http://bookcrossingolympics.blogspot.se/. For hockey, a book should be released in as cold a place as possible, and to do this Team Nangijala needs some help with transportation of this freezing Snow Child...

The book has been with me some time and has travelled safely to Greenland where it will be released as part of the BC Olymics.

Funny coincidence that I got this book myself, from when I was in Alaska earlier this year.

Just started reading this book. Picked it up in a charity sell in Shakespeare's Stratford Upon Avon. So great to have discovered book crossing.
Will leave a full review of book (assuming I can leave 2) when its finished.
I'm hoping to finish reading it in Greece on holiday so will release it there. Quite an adventure this book is going on. Currently in Bristol.

WILD RELEASE NOTES:

Really loved this book. Very descriptive of Alaska and the characters. Wasn't sure what route it would take, part tragedy, part love story, part fairy tale. Beautiful debut novel.
