This book, for some reason kind of reminded me of The Snow Child a bit.
The story starts off by introducing readers to all of the characters throughout the sleepy little town, each with their own lives and dark pasts. As the citizens are sitting in the local inn/tavern, a man stumbles in from a storm carrying what appears to be a dead child. From that point forward the story really begins.
I'm amazed by how seamlessly the author weaved in the townspeople's stories into the overall plot. As the story progresses, you find out more about each of these people and how they might(?) be connected to the sudden appearance of the child.
If you're a fan of magical realism, I think you'll definitely enjoy this book!
