April Challenge, 30 days and 30 poems.

Day 10.       Reading Group today.

Five members met to discuss a book,

‘The Snow Girl’ by Eowen Yvery,

a debut novel by an Alaskan born

writer, which itself is based on a

100 year old children’s story by Arthur

Ransome. Of the five of us, only

our youngest member did not like

the book, not her style! It was in a way

a gentle tale, with violent moments –

you cannot live in a wilderness, having to

hunt for your food and not have some

violent action. The main thrust of the

story was love, of married people, parent

and child, child for an animal, love of the

open spaces. There were magical parts

where your belief was suspended.

The book, unusually included a list of

12 other books, written by  Alaskan authors

which I fully intend to explore.
