CONTEST: The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey

Hi there readers!


Welcome back to post two of the day here at Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers....the place that despite having less than stellar computer access at times, is still determined to churn out the best bookish posts for YOU! 

We started the day with a Teaser Tuesday post, or as I like to call them a Taste Testing Tuesday post, featuring a title just making its debut into the literary world.  It comes to us from a writer who makes her living as a bookseller in Alaska of all places (how ironic the book takes place there, no?  ^_^) and is now tacking on the title of "published author" to her own personal coat of many colors.  (Congratulations!)  Curious about the book?  I thought you might be.  Read on my friend, read on....



From the publisher....
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.

Sounds good, no?
I know I was intrigued when I first heard about it and as it is my current read, I can honestly say...so far, so good!  It's moving but not in that fast paced action sorta way...more in a quiet, emotionally striking tone that has you lingering on each page for a moment to see if there is some piece you may have overlooked and can absorb once again.  It's really quite good....and as I make my way through the book, I am MORE than pleased to share this bit of good fortune with you.
