Tracks in the Snow is a lovely story I recommend reading. It offers gifts of insight and reflection that may clear a direction or support an activity in ones personal life. For that reason, reading Tracks in the Snow is my new holiday tradition. Last year's gift was a greater insight into forgiveness. I wonder what this year's present will be? I can't wait to read it again this December!

Loved Tracks in the Snow. Wasn't sure about it when I started, felt it took a little to get into, but after becoming acquainted with the book, and its style, I couldn't put it down!
Great relationship book with lots of hard times to deal with. It felt real, with real people in real situations. There's a lesson in this book for all of us, and it is described very nicely.

This ended up being a very beautiful book with a great lesson to all of us. It is something I know I will pick up again someday and read over again. Although it moved slowly in some parts, it did not make me lose interest. Strong message about faith and family and forgiveness. Good read especially during the holiday season.
One big disappointment was that the actual book I received as a gift had blank pages starting with Chapter 34 for the first 5 pages of that chapter. Sort of had to improvise f

A tender tale of learning to adjust to loss and forgiving those who caused it. Esch presents her characters and setting in crisp detail, letting them struggle to find solutions that are fresh and surprising.

This is the first of a trilogy. I ordered this and the second, as the author is from my hometown in southern Minnesota and this story takes place in my hometown in the mid 1940's.
It was just OK.
