“An unusual love story and a creepy horror novel — think of the Brontë sisters and Stephen King...The architecture of the storytelling is faultless.”
- John Irving, author of In One Person, The World According to Garp, The Cider House Rules

“A taut, atmospheric thriller...Jamey Bradbury has crafted a stunning debut full of secrets and hunger, grief and longing. Like the cold of an Alaskan winter, this book chilled me and wrapped me in quiet dread.” - Jennifer McMahon, author of The Winter People

“A uniquely American coming-of-age tale set on the Alaskan frontier where the borderlines between civilization and savagery...become blurred...A remarkable fable of growing up in the new world.”
- Joshua Gaylord, author of When We Were Animals
