The Snow Song

by Sally Gardner

If you’re looking for a lovely, lyrical, old-fashioned story with a strong message, do give the Snow Song a go.

Perched on a mountain, cut off from the world by a foreboding forest is a small village run by the elders, men to whom tradition is all.  Edith is being forced to marry the butcher despite being in love with the shepherd – a man from out of town – who has promised to return to her before the snows come.   As the first flakes fall with no sign of her beloved, Edith loses her power of speech.  This enchantment will have far-reaching consequences not only for Edith but for the whole village. 

In this richly spun folk tale of female fellowship and insurgence, silence is weaponised to subvert the patriarchy. – Daily Mail

Heartbreaking, brilliantly written – The Times

Deceptively simple, and simply lovely, this thoroughly modern yet ancient fairy tale both stings and enchants with its themes of superstition and prejudice. – LoveReading UK
