This was a very suspenseful and unusual book. The characters were quirky and wonderful. The life in Alaska was hard and difficult but full of rewards. The snow child was full of energy and life and her customs were old world. I hated for this story to end. I also had so much sadness because of the events that slowly played out. And yet the joy in the story makes me smile as I remember bits and pieces. I loved this book and will read more from this writer. I loved this story!
I did not expect to be as drawn into this story as I was, expecting a fairy tale but getting so much more. I was very caught up in the characters lives, and the images and imaginings of living in Alaska.
The narration was excellent, but the plot loses steam within part one. I'd often find my mind straying and eventually looked forward to just completing the book. The story could have been told in less time and just failed to maintain my interest.
