The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey GIVEAWAY

The Snow ChildThe Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey

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.

Do you know what I love? I mean besides German Chocolate Cupcakes with cream cheese/whipped topping filling. Great books. I'm not finished with this one but the writing style is addicting. Also, if you click on the book's image up there, you can see what other readers say about it. It is getting an average of 4.16 stars.

Do you know what else I love? Giveaways. It makes me feel benevolent even though Little, Brown Company is the benevolent ones. Humor me in my make-believe benevolence. Love the book. Enter the contest.
