Reading this book is a journey in itself. There’s a mystery involved, but the characters and their progress have more importance than the outcome. The story, set in winter in the backblocks of 19th century Canada, is about love and determination. As various people traverse the desolate landscape you are drawn in by their diverse motives. Extremely well written and hard to put down.
“Along the bleak and lonely trail
unfolds a dark enticing tale.”
