This is a little hard to categorise - it's a modern re-telling of a fairy tale, but you can read it as fantastical or not - it depends which way you take the story. And it's a beautiful story, of an older couple in Alaska who befriend a young girl who appears from the woods, and the transformation she creates in their lives. The novel has a quiet calm in its mood and pacing, which works so well with the story. I really enjoyed it.
