Reading Lottery- The Winter People

I read The Winter People by Jennifer McMahon.
I wasn't sure what to think  based on the blurb. It didn't sound like the kind of book I would have picked up on my own. 
Boy am I ever glad I read it though. It actually reminded me of The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey.

It wasn't scary ghosts haunting people like I thought. It was a mix of historical fiction and mystery with a great big helping of the paranormal. @revjen I think you need to read this book!

Anyways, @plumshine I hope you are still lurking about. Thanks for recommending this book! I would never have picked it up myself and would have missed out on a fantastic story!

  • Would this be good for a book club?

    I think it might work for a book club @packfan20. Let me see if I can find any discussion questions.
  • I think the kindle edition I borrowed from the library had discussion questions at the end, just fyi. :)

    PS -- I really enjoyed this book, too! :)
