Mind of Winter

Mind of Winter

Back

*Starred Review* Holly Judge wakes up on Christmas morning knowing "Something had followed them home from Russia." Trapped at home with her teenage daughter during a blizzard, Holly's thoughts drift back to the trips she and her husband took to Siberia's Pokrovka Orphanage #2 to adopt baby Tatiana. Versions of those visits change as the day progresses. Holly's slow revelations about what drove her to adopt and her own family history cause the reader to become even more suspicious of Holly's increasingly confused descriptions of the day's events. Whatever happened in Russia, something, or someone, in that house is not right. The slow, cold menace in the book is palpable. As a reader, you know that something horrible is going to be revealed?something awful and inevitable. And, when you finally force yourself to turn that last page, it will not be a scream that gets caught in your throat, but a gut-punching, heart-wrenching sob. A book that will haunt you for days and long, long nights after reading. Copyright 2013 Booklist Reviews
