This book wasn’t really what I was expecting. I was expecting a story about a woman who had been captured by someone and was working against them to release her, perhaps more thriller-like and bloody? While some of those were in the book, this book instead was about love, relationships, facing inner demons, trauma, life and death, strength, and the power of human connection. All while a woman was trapped in a desolate cabin in the snow.
I loved this book. It brought me to tears at several points and it also made me feel love at some points. The characters in this book were very mysterious, but well thought out and complex. Even at the end of the story, there is much to wonder about as not everything is explained. The ending of the book was also devastatingly beautiful. I was definitely rooting for a different ending, one that to me would have been “happier” maybe, but this ending did ultimately fit the book. I can’t get enough of books like these and even just sitting here writing this review I can’t get it off of my mind. This is the first book that I have read by Tarryn Fisher and I will definitely be back for more.
