The Boy Made Of Snow

By Chloe Mayer

I dropped a hint, {as in sent Paul a photo of the front cover of the book, as you do}, as soon as I’d seen it advertised, knowing I just had to read this!

I was not wrong.

The Boy Made Of Snow tells the story of a mother and her son, whose father has left to fight in the war, and their relationship with a prisoner of war.

In a sleepy English village in 1944, Annabel and her son Daniel live in the shadow of war.  With her husband away, an increasingly isolated Annabel begins to lose her grip on reality.

When mother and son befriend Hans, their lives are suddenly filled with thrilling secrets.

To Annabel, Hans is an awakening from the darkness that has engulfed her since Daniel’s birth.  To her son, a solitary boy caught up in the magical world of fairy tales, he is perhaps a prince in disguise.  But Hans has plans of his own and will soon set them into motion with devastating consequences .

What.  A.  Read.   The relationship between Daniel and his mother was heartbreaking to read…and the new relationships forming were intriguing…so much so, it was due to not being able to put the book down, that I blame being late for work on a couple of occasions going back after the Christmas break.

I loved it so much and want someone else to enjoy it as much as I did, that I’m willing to send it out to whoever wants it.  On one request, you give a small donation (and I’m talking a few quid here, which is a bargain considering the book is £14.99) to Alzheimer’s Society, a charity that is very important to me and my family.

Please get in touch if you’re interested in the book and here is where you can donate;

Diolch yn fawr iawn, it means a lot.

Anyone got any good book recommendations to share?!
