To be honest, although there were trading agents in Alaska at that time, I invented the specific character and randomly chose his name. I can't remember how I came across it. Sometimes I leaf through a phone book when I'm searching for a character name, other times I pick names off the spines of my research books. I wish I could remember how I found it -- but thank you for the great question!(less)

Quotes by Eowyn Ivey  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“We never know what is going to happen, do we? Life is always throwing us this way and that. That’s where the adventure is. Not knowing where you’ll end up or how you’ll fare. It’s all a mystery, and when we say any different, we’re just lying to ourselves. Tell me, when have you felt most alive?”
Eowyn Ivey, The Snow Child

“In my old age, I see that life itself is often more fantastic and terrible than the stories we believed as children, and that perhaps there is no harm in finding magic among the trees.”
Eowyn Ivey, The Snow Child

“We are allowed to do that, are we not Mabel? To invent our own endings and choose joy over sorrow?”
Eowyn Ivey, The Snow Child
