Warm and lush with characters you fall in love with in a setting that fills you with awe, this is a stunningly beautiful novel. Perhaps my new favorite book. There's not much more I can say about it. Read the first chapter (11 pages) on amazon http://www.amazon.com/The-Snow-Child-A-Novel/dp/0316175676#reader_0316175676 and you will know right away if this book is for you. It would be terribly wrong if Eowyn Ivey does not win the Pulitzer Prize.
