‘A glorious love story, a spellbinding fable’ Adele Parks

From the award-winning and bestselling Sally Gardner, whose books have sold more than 2.5 million copies worldwide, comes a hearbreaking novel for adults

Women imprisoned by superstition, chained by guilt.
 
Perched on a mountain in a land of ancient forests is a village, rife with secrets. Cut off from the outside world it is run by the elders, men to whom tradition is all.

Edith lives alone with her alcoholic father who is forcing her to marry the village butcher. But she is in love with a shepherd who promised to return to her.

As the village becomes isolated in a sea of snow, Edith loses her power of speech. And it is this enchantment that will have far-reaching consequences, not only for Edith but for the whole village.

‘A gorgeous love story ? with more than a touch of magical realism’ Independent
