I LOVED this story. Told by a breathless girl called Darcy who is struggling with her health and wild surroundings, this story slowly but surely pulls you into the warm but terrifying hold of an injured bear. It was intriguing to hear of the perils of being housebound in deep snow in grizzly country without contact with the outside world, electricity or running water. The survival techniques were genius, and I'm assuming drawn from real life, and the characters were very real and interesting. But it is the beautiful growing relationship with the bear that brings the reader to a profound and heart rending conclusion. This kind of story sits right in the middle of your heart, pounding with life.
