Abstract:

Fairy tale and history, wilderness and civilisation collide in this novel. In the depths of winter in the land of Belarus, where ancient forests straddle modern country borders, an orphaned boy and his grandfather go to scatter his mother’s ashes in the woodlands. Her last request to rest where she grew up will be fulfilled. Her last potent gifts - a little wooden horse, and hunks of her homemade gingerbread - give the boy vigour, and grandfather’s magical stories help push the harsh world away. But the driving snow, which masks the tracks of forest life, also hides a frozen history of long-buried secrets.
