I watched my father run forward in his snowshoes the way one sometimes does in dreams, unable to make the legs move fast enough. I ran to the place where he knelt. I looked down into the sleeping bag. A tiny face gazed up at me, the eyes wide despite their many folds. The baby was wrapped in a bloody towel, and its lips were blue.'

The events of a December afternoon on which a father and his daughter find an abandoned infant in the snow will forever alter eleven-year-old Nicky Dillon's understanding of the world which she is about to enter and the adults who inhabit it: a father who has taken great pains to remove himself from society in order to put behind him an unthinkable tragedy; a young woman who must live with the consequences of the terrible choices she has made; and a detective whose cleverness is superseded only by his sense of justice. Written from the point of view of thirty-year-old Nicky as she recalls the vivid images of that fateful December, hers is a tale of love and courage, of tragedy and redemption, and of the ways in which the human heart always seeks to heal itself.

Here's what you say about us...

Anita Shreve is the author of nine other critically acclaimed and bestselling novels, all published in Abacus paperback.

This story touches the very deepest human emotions . . . Chaucerian in its intense sympathy and its appealing universality . . . Shreve's style is fluent and unpretentious, with an irresistible rhythmic and narrative impetus that keeps you up, reading ever faster, all night . . . Perceptive, gripping and ultimately exhilarating, this is a very fine book indeed
Sue Gaisford, INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY

Anita Shreve's eleventh novel plunges the reader straight into a gripping narrative . . . This is Shreve at her poised best, and her controlled, crisply understated prose makes her emotive subject all the more affecting
DAILY MAIL

Full of emotional depth, it's not a comfortable read but one that will stay with you a long time. Oprah says that if a book doesn't grab her in the first 50 pages, she moves on. There'll be no need for that
