Wolf winter looks amazing. Really looking forward to seeing what you have chosen for the reading group.
Hope you are recovering well and enjoying getting back into your reading.

Looks excellent, gone on the list. I CAN relate to the cover, lol, snowshoes were my early birthday present but not tried to read a book as well........

Cornflower

Thank you, Wilma.

Cornflower

I tried snowshoes once, but I don't think I'm a natural!

Rose

My copy is waiting for me in Waterstone's Chiswick High Road, can't wait....

Cornflower

Great!

Just Finn-ished (!) Wolf Winter. I copied and pasted this from The Guardian's review "...Blackåsen is remote and otherworldly, and the impact of the new geopolitical realities on its settlers arrives too late in the narrative make much difference..." - agreed - a good read, the Wolf Winter beautifully drawn but some clunky devices - I am off to The British Museum to see what is believed to be the only surviving Sámi drum, most were burned. "Before Christianity became widespread among the Sámi, drums were used by shamans to reach a state of ecstasy through which he could interact with the spirit world, and as an instrument of divination. Perhaps because little is known about Sámi shamanism, the drums have become a particular focus of research" - so says the BM entry online.

Might there be a sequel to Wolf Winter? The author says not but Frederika, her mother and Fearless are left very much in limbo between two worlds...thanks for this recommendation Cornflower

Cornflower

I've just finished it, too!
Very much enjoyed it - would love to know what happens to Frederika, etc., as you say, Rose, and would like to see the drum.
