The Reader development Team are thrilled that the fourth group read has been selected by one of our members.
Charlotte would like us to read The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey. When I asked Charlotte why she had chosen this book she said:
‘I have read it a few times now, Waterstones had it as their book of the week not long after it was published. The cover attracted me and as it is set in Alaska and based on a Russian fairy tale, was interesting. I have made this choice, as it is a beautiful story, about a couple that live in a beautiful part of the world and a way of life that only a select few could dream of living today in this fast paced modern world.’ Charlotte.
Jack and Mabel have staked everything on making a fresh start in the raw Alaskan wilderness. In a moment of tenderness, the pair build a snowman – or rather a snow girl – together. The next morning, all trace of her has disappeared. But Jack can’t shake the notion that he glimpsed a small figure running in the trees in the dawn light.
We would love you to read along with us. You can request a copy of the book by contacting Unsworth Library; they will then arrange for you to collect it from a Library that is most convenient for you.
Happy reading! We look forward to your comments.
