The inaugural winner of England's prestigious Orange Prize, A Spell of Winter is a compelling turn-of-the-century tale of innocence corrupted by secrecy, and the grace of second chances. Cathy and her brother, Rob, have forged a passionate refuge against the terror of loneliness and family secrets, but their sibling love becomes fraught with danger. As Catherine fights free of her dark present and haunting past, the spell of winter that has held her in its grasp begins to break. Dunmore touches everything: skin, bone, frozen earth. -- Los Angeles Times Book Review A] literary page-turner. -- Publishers Weekly (starred review) A] modern Gothic. -- Library Journal.
