Told by a twelve year old girl in the snow country, this is a story about love, loss and painful recovery. It's simply written and yet it illustrates the complicated details of the lost souls trapped in the beauty of the chilling cold. The characters won my sympathy many times over. The story is emotionally charged and thought provoking. It reminds the readers to cherish every moment in life and be truly grateful for everything and every second. It's a beautiful work of fiction.
