    "Snowy Dream Land"

    This story had me to the end. I was suture disappointed only because of a review I had read that had me anticipating a different ending.

    Story
    "So sad, So glad."

    I absolutely loved it! After a bit of a discouraging beginning, I fell into an easy comfort with this story that held me through a busy week between Christmas and New Year. Not wanting to "put it down," I laughed and yes, even shed tears, at the end. Who knows?! Where did she go??? How was Garret over the years?? How did such an "angel" come and go so freely? And go, and go, and go??!
    The end. Sue G

    Story
    "Enchanting"

    A must read. A delicate yet strong story, it was written with such emotion whether it was disappointment, anger; wonder or surprise, you felt it all. The characters were immediately familiar and intimate to the reader. The ending was like a Grimm fairytale from my youth. The narration was also exceptional. It captured every nuance of the characters and made them come alive.

    Story
    "I Love this book"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Snow Child to be better than the print version?

    The narrator was excellent and added personality to the book that can be missed in print. The audio book was better than any other book I have listened to.


    What other book might you compare The Snow Child to and why?

    I am not sure I have read a contemporary book even close to being as good as this one. It brought me back to my childhood reading Laura Engalls Wilder and being totally lost in the characters. I would go to bed imaging myself as Mabel in Alaska something I lost in adulthood.


    What about Debra Monk’s performance did you like?

    I loved her reading the parts about Esther and and Mable. She made me feel truly like I was in the mind of the characters


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Snow Child an Alaskan a story of love and adventure


    Any additional comments?

    This is a story of being a parent, true love of nature and romance. The best book ever

    "Great story."

    I was impressed with the storyline and the ending. It left you deciding if she was a snow child, fairy, etc. I would definitely recommend. Happy Listening 👍👍
