The settings come alive – the harshness of his life working for the Jorgensens and then alone in Winter felt very real. The rhythm of his life dictated by the weather pulled me in as did his relationships with his nearest neighbours. I have to say that I was right behind Harry all the way with everything he did… As well as the settings, the writing style transported me back in history.
A Place Called Winter is an emotional read. It shares with us the fragility of mental health and the power of those that prey on the most vulnerable in a society. It’s a celebration of overcoming obstacles in love and life. It’s about accepting yourself and redemption.
