    when i was about one hundred pages from the end of this book, i tugged on greg s sleeve at work, and said, is this gonna end sad and he refused to answer.i think that was a good impulse.because i almost don t wanna review this this book was such a beautiful journey, and taking place as it does over a number of years, there are naturally high and low points, emotionally but i m not going to tell you how it ends up.i will tell you that i VERY NEARLY CRIED early on like page 42 early.i misted, but nothing tumbled out.that is a big deal for me, and from that point on, i was hooked.i suppose i can give you some brief descriptions, for those of you who strangely don t see the cover and instantly think must read jack and mabel are a couple who married late r in life than typical for the 1920 s, suffered a miscarriage, and move to alaska to try their hand at homesteading, as a way of isolating themselves from the constant reminder of their loss, their friends and families with their healthy children, and the sorrow hanging over them now in their fifties, the idea was that the solitude would heal them, and together, they would build a new life and cleave together with a love stronger than ever.this didn t exactly pan out, and each of them descends into their own private griefs and the hardships the brutal carelessness of nature pr...

    I put off reading The Snow Child because it wasn t something I would have chosen for myself without the extremely positive reviews of other goodreads members If it is not obvious to you from the description alone, then this book is not mostly plot driven It s charm is upheld by the characters, the relationships, and the sad, cold mood that seems to permeate the entire novel from open to close It is the kind of novel that I sometimes have trouble with, the kind not concerned with action or drama, but subdued and subtle However, I was fortunate in that the characters held my attention throughout and the relationship between Mabel and Jack carried something simultaneously heart warming and bittersweet that really spoke to me.Mabel and Jack are an aging couple that have escaped from their previous reality into the Alaskan wilderness They struggle to get by with Jack trying desperately to turn the old farm where they live into something that can support them through the harsh winters But they are also struggling with something that runs much deeper their childlessness and the memory of the stillborn baby that continues to drive them apart I loved the relationship between the pair, the way they often felt distanced from one another but still relied on each other for support It was heart breaking to picture them sat at thei...

    There once was an old man and woman who loved each other very much and were content with their lot in life except for one great sadness they had no children of their own I ve often read that it is difficult to write a review about books that left you indifferent, distant I agree, but for me, writing a review about a novel that left me speechless with its beauty is equally hard Where do words stop Where should we stop analyzing and dissecting a work of literature and let the power of the story speak for itself Jack and Mabel is a couple that love each other unconditionally and yet, their life together is tarnished by the absence of a child Their decision to move to Alaska, in a remote area of the Last Frontier, is their final attempt to start anew, on virgin ground, away from their relatives gossips and silent pity A tough place to begin again, one may say, but I believe that we are often in need of a shock, in need of a drastic change of environment, to look upon our lives under a new light, to attempt to correct our wrongs or chase our fears away It is not easy Far from it And it is not easy for our protagonists either November was here, and it frightened her because she knew what it brought cold upon the valley like a coming death, glacial wind through the cracks between the cabin logs But most of all, darkness Darkness so complete even the pale lit hours would be chocked While Jack retains his contact with the outside wo...

    Thank you to the Goodreads community and my friends for the comments of inspiration while I was reading this book When The Snow Child was first released in 2012, other that adoring the books cover, I was sure this book wasn t for me I m not sure why or what I thought it was I just passed it over Well, for what s it s worthI am than pleasantly surprised to discover how MUCH I LIKE THIS BOOK I don t seem to remember anyone telling me it was a page turner.The blend of myth and naturalism are alluring and fascinating In all fairness, I was ready for this book I m not sure I was 4 years ago Besides the story itselfIt s been a long time since I even thought about the homesteading hardships in Alaska I took a class on the history and geography of Alaska when I was an under grad at Cal over 40 years ago A few memories come back My emotions were invested right from the start Having a story mixed with history often makes me authentically interested in the history The descriptions of the Alaskan wilderness were so stunning, that I ended up looking at pictures on the Internet brought back memories of when I was in that college class studying Alaska before computers I loved the beginning of this novel it s w...

    Once upon a time there lived a childless old couple This is not an uncommon beginning to folk tales, a simple introductory line which can and in Eowyn Ivey s The Snow Child does condense into a few simple words the years of pain, sadness, and intense longing for something that nature refused to give despite desperate desire Where else in life, Mabel wondered, could a woman love so openly and with such abandon This is where I saw the strengths of The Snow Child not in the imagery of Alaskan wilderness through the prism of magical realism, not in the enigmatic nature of the titular snow child, but in the depiction of quiet, desperate sadness and alienation that plagues a deeply unhappy couple, torn apart by the weight of grief, struggling under the burden of their perceived failures Was that why they had come north to build a life Or did fear drive her Fear of the gray, not just in the strands of her hair and her wilting cheeks, but the gray that ran deeper, to the bone, so that she t...

    I loved this sweet story So much heart and a little magic

    So this story was beautiful with so many cute and heartbreaking moments One of the best things in the book is the character development and the developing relationships throughout the story From the start of the book, I nearly started crying because there was just scenes that were so heart wrenching especially at the end which completely broke my heart.All the characters are perfect in this novel, they all have their faults but just as many strengths and the unexpected romance towards the end just killed me Faina, the snow child is one of the coolest characters I have ever met as she s a quiet badass Her interactions with Mabel and Jack are so cute and the relationship that develops between the three of them is adorable The neighbours, George, Esther and their children are hilarious especially Esther ...

    5 It was beautiful, Mabel knew, but it was a beauty that ripped you open and scoured you clean so that you were left helpless and exposed, if you lived at all. Jack had always scoffed at the superstitious and mystical Alone in the depths of the wilderness, however, in the fading winter light, he had discovered in himself an animal like fear A debut, a Pulitzer Prize nominee, and a wonderful story I m happy to add to my list of favourites I used to read myths and fairy tales, so I m a perfect audience for this lovely interpretation of an old Russian folktale.It s 1920, Wolverine River, Alaska Jack and Mabel have made a daring move from the comfortable East Coast of the United States Mabel was a well educated, sheltered girl, but when she and Jack lost their baby and have had none since, she urged him to make the change They needed to start anew, by themselves, for themselves Or so she told people she wondered if she had told the truth Was that why they had come north to build a life Or did fear drive her Fear of the gray, not just in the strands of her hair and her wilting cheeks, but the gray that ran deeper, to the bone, so that she t...

    It s truly gratifying to come across a book that evokes the senses to such a degree that its flavor is brought to the palate Such is the case with Eowyn Ivey s debut novel, The Snow Child Infused with aspects of pine boughs, mountain herbs, woolen mittens and inspired by happenstance, it breathes new life into an old Russian children s tale Ivey stumbled upon in her bookstore.We come to know of aging Jack and Mabel through their childless sorrows, playful intense love and survivalist fortitude all cruxing on a belief in dreams and a touch of magic Through imagery spun with such crispness as to leave a skiff of snow on your heart and the bite of cold wilderness air in your lungs, it s nearly impossible not to fall deeply into the story of Faina and her enchanted sudden appearance And I must say, the skill with which Ivey works your emotions ebbing and flowing like tides wi...
