My rating: 4 of 5 stars
What a lovely, atmospheric book. Told from the point of view of a grown woman looking back at her 12 year old self, it’s a story about a father and daughter who find a baby in the snow. Ostensibly the story is about what happens to the baby and her mother, but it’s really about the bond of grief and love that links Nikcy to her father.
It’s a quiet study of emotion. Highly recommended.
