I sort of feel like I wasn't able to give this beautiful book the attention it deserved because I had a lot going on when I was trying to read it. It was the story of a family in a logging town called Sawgamet. Various tragedies befall the family, and they have to face the elements; snow, and fire.

The ax is practically a character in this book.

I loved the writing, the darkness of the story and the way that ghosts and creatures that live in the forest came to life. There are some images in the book that will stick in my memory.

This book is destined to be a winter classic (I actually found some of the harshness of winter difficult to read about) and I would definitely check out Zentner's next book.
