    "touching story"

    Great story, though I admit the ending was disappointing to a degree. I really got to know and like the characters.

    Story
    "Alaskan Fairy Tale That Has It All!"

    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!

    Story
    "too predictable"

    although I have forms myself many times back in the story recreating the ending. always a good sign when a story lives in me even after I have finished it.

    "Enchanted by 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.

    Story
    "Couldn't hold my attention"

    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.

    "Amazing"

    The story was lyric and magical. The narration was engaging. I truly was sad when the experience was over.

    "Great story and a worthwhile listen"

    I loved the incorporation of the fairytale into the story of the couples attempt to work through their grief over the death of a child. It was sad at times but so honest in the way both the husband and wife had dealt with their grief differently over the years and what finally brought them together at the end. Bittersweet but ultimately the couple find joy in the future, family and each other again.
