Snow Child, by Eowyn Ivey. Also, an entertaining book to give you the flavor of Alaska bush living, Break Up by Dana Stabenow. “Stabenow was born in Anchorage and raised on a 75-foot fish tender in the Gulf of Alaska. She knew there was a warmer, drier job out there somewhere and found it in writing. Her first crime fiction novel, A Cold Day for Murder, won an Edgar award. Her first thriller, Blindfold Game, hit the New York Times bestseller list.” – From Amazon.
