The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey

The Snow Child - Eowyn Ivey

Gentle fairy tale like book that touches on bittersweet emotions. It's about an older couple who are unable to have children when one day they make a snow girl and she comes to life the next day. I would've loved to have explored this snow child more as she was very mysterious but this book was really about the couple and their reactions. My biggest complaint was that I felt far removed from the characters. It was almost like I was on the outside of their cabin peering in through the window.


Final verdict: Lovely but superficial connection
