I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night.

It was sweet, simple, poignant, and beautiful. "The Snow Child" is unpredictable and will leave the reader thinking long after the book has finished. It is not, however, heavy and overly philosophical making it a lighter read than most thought provoking books. The book is great for a change of pace.
I was trying to think of how I really felt about this book and this pretty much sums it up! I did really enjoy this book for its simplicity and how it was written. Many of the events weren't anything spectacular but you felt compelled to keep reading into the characters and their lives.

This book was beautiful. My stepmom gave me the book to read and I put it off for so long as it just didn't seem like my kind of book. As soon as I started, I couldn't stop. Now I am suggesting this book to everyone. It was so beautiful and almost suspenseful in a way. The beautiful mystery has left a imprint on my soul.

A friend passed this ebook along to me without much comment. After I read it, we discussed it at length. The earlier comments written here about it staying with you without a heavy philosophical (or mystical) bent, and keeping you turning pages as the characters and story unfold is so true. A book for all ages.

I haven't really read the book but from the review, it sounds like a good book to read.
