⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 star review
‘Snow Song’ tells the story of Edith, a young woman who one day finds herself drawn to the sound of a violin, meets Demetrius, a shepherd and an outsider of the town.
Edith and Demetrius soon find themselves falling in love but they find their relationship frowned upon by the town’s folks. Edith has also been set up to marry the town’s butcher, a wealthy man who has power within the town but Edith is determined to marry the one she loves. Sadly things don’t go to plan when Demetrius goes missing and is presumed dead and Edith is forced to carry on with the proceedings.
However, when the first snow begins to falls, Edith who is now heartbroken, loses her voice and suddenly finds her hair turning white like the snow.
Things soon start to go wrong around town and Edith who is unable to speak for herself is accused of been cursed. With the wedding coming up, she soon finds herself fighting against the town elders and the ones she loves.
I loved everything about this story, from the characters she had created to the setting of the book. I also loved how Edith proves herself to be a character to be reckoned with.
The story is beautifully described, I loved the winter feel to the story and I got a real feel for the world that the author had created.
It’s a touching and powerful read that will stay with you for a long time after.
I’d highly recommend this book if you’re a lover of fairy tales and is a perfect read for this time of year.
‘Snow Song’ is a magical and beautifully enchanting fairy tale.
