Wolf Winter

by Cecilia Ekbäck
£8.99   paperback  Hodder & Stoughton (2015)

Wolf Winter by Cecilia Ekbäck There are six homesteads on Blackåsen Mountain.
 
A day's journey away lies the empty town. It comes to life just once, in winter, when the Church summons her people through the snows. Then, even the oldest enemies will gather.
 
But now it is summer, and new settlers are come.
 
It is their two young daughters who find the dead man, not half an hour's walk from their cottage.
 
The father is away. And whether stubborn, or stupid, or scared for her girls, the mother will not let it rest.
 
To the wife who is not concerned when her husband does not come home for three days; to the man who laughs when he hears his brother is dead; to the priest who doesn't care; she asks and asks her questions, digging at the secrets of the mountain.
 
They say a wolf made those wounds. But what wild animal cuts a body so clean?

"Like a silent fall of snow; suddenly, the reader is enveloped... visually acute, skilfully written; it won't easily erase its tracks in the reader's mind."
(HILARY MANTEL, author of Wolf Hall and Bring Up The Bodies)
