Synopsis

"Ehrlich ventures confidently into new terrain in her eloquent and affecting debut children's novel. [Her] prose, as pristine and spare as her snow-covered landscape, portrays the quiet drama of the changing seasons -- in both their consistency and unpredictability -- as well as a family attuned to nature's every nuance." --Publisher's Weekly, starred review
