I'd recommend Winter's Tale by Mark Helprin. I read it in the 80s when it was new and still think of it whenever it snows. Also, my favourite Le Guin - The Left Hand of Darkness - which is set on a planet called Winter. Enough said?

What a lovely post, I was going to ask on twitter for some Christmas reading recommendations to invoke some festive spirit

The book that made me the most happy to HAVE a fire was "Sea Runners" by Ivan Doig. Sharon M.

If any in your book group who have e-readers are having trouble getting Lady Audley's Secret, it's available as a free download from both Project Gutenberg and ManyBooks for Kindle.

I'm excited about The Snow Child, which I received a few weeks ago - might take it home and read by our wood fire in Somerset!
