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.

Wow. I picked up this book knowing nothing about the title or the author and after reading only one page, was pulled deeply into this haunting,sad, atmospheric and beautifully written story. I can't wait to read more by Dunmore.

This is the story of a brother and sister escaping to a bigger life. Somehow, it had an Irish sensibility to me.
