Good Housekeeping

'Gorgeously written and devastating' Kate Riordan

'One of the best novels I've read' Gill Paul

'Desperately romantic' Katie Fforde

*

A family secret.
A lost love.
A life-changing journey to the Arctic . . .

*

Caroline Gillan and her new husband Alasdair have moved back to Kelly Castle, his family estate in the wilds of Scotland. Stuck caring for their baby and trying to avoid her inscrutable mother-in-law, Caroline feels adrift and alone.

But while sorting through old papers, Caroline stumbles across a family secret which changes everything. There is one Gillan bride who has disappeared from history. No photos or records of her exist. The only certainty is that she had a legitimate child: Alasdair's grandmother.

As Caroline unearths a story of love and adventure that stretches as far as the Arctic circle, her curiosity about the missing bride turns into an obsession. And when a body is found in the grounds of the castle, Caroline begins an investigation which could alter the course of her life forever . . .

From the wilds of Scotland to the glaciers of the Arctic, A Woman Made of Snow is a mesmerising tale of how one woman's past might hold the key to another's future.

«The perfect mix of gripping plot and lyrical writing»

Good Housekeeping

«Absorbing»

Prima

«Secrets come creeping back to the surface in this chilling tale»

Woman’s Own

«A thought-provoking, satisfying and enjoyable story to read ... [a] captivating, frequently moving story»

New Books Magazine

«A gorgeous, melancholy love story»

The Times, praise for The Lost Lights of St Kilda

«Desperately romantic, lyrically written and with a fascinating plot.»

Katie Fforde, praise for The Lost Lights of St Kilda

«I loved this book. Beautifully written and descriptive... The twisted threads weave an engaging plot which takes us on a trail of human courage and measures the cost of betrayal. Set in the last poignant years of life on remote St Kilda and in war-torn Europe, it paints both worlds with a vividness that is wholly convincing.»

Sarah Maine, praise for The Lost Lights of St Kilda

«The characters are exquisitely drawn, and the slowly emerging love story rings entirely true. This is one of the best novels I've read in a long while, a real jewel

Gill Paul, praise for The Lost Lights of St Kilda
