The Devil in the Snow

review The Devil in the Snow 103 Sarah Armstrong Å 3 review read ☆ eBook or Kindle ePUB Å Sarah Armstrong All Shona wants is a simple life with her young son and to get free of Maynard the ex who’s still living in the house When her teenage daughter goes missing she’s. This is a book that is mainly about a painful divorce and the attempt by the protagonist Shona to take back control of her ruined life In doing so she seeks revenge against her art dealer husband who has callously put her through misery It s a wonderful tale and amongst a cast of very good characters Shona s two children Jude and Cerys stand out as being drawn really well To say whether she gets her revenge or not would be a plot spoiler so I ll avoid going down that line There is an intriguing super natural sub plot Shona is haunted by her past the fear that like the other women in her blood line she is pursued by the Devil whose footprints are visible when it snows This gives us an insight into Shona s familial backstory and we are introduced from the outset to Shona s troubled mother Greta still being pursued by the Devil and her grandmother who died whilst being pursuedThe two sub plots the mundane and the fantastic are connected through a strange youth Kallu who inserts himself into Shona s life and is soon living in her garden shed His odd clairvoyant meditating barefoot antics and riddle strewn conversations make him an interesting antithesis to the humdrum of Shona s life the school run the feeding of children her fractured relationships with Greta Jude and Cerys and her tawdry sexual relationship with a teacher at her daughter s school Kallu is a talisman who seems to have some mystic insight into her difficulties and Shona feels that he can help her to find a way through them and she persists with himThe divorce evil husband sub plot builds and reaches a satisfying climax leaving the Devil in the Snow sub plot to resolve itself I believe it does but frustratingly I didn t understand it And that s the reason why such a well written page turner drops a star had I grasped that final thread it would definitely have been a five star read I should add here that I don t read super natural books normally and it may be that a reader versed in the genre might well get it This is a great read and I thorougly recommend it Don t be put off by the little mystery at the end instead see it as Kallu himself would probably see it a tempting little riddle to try to solve an exotic teaser to look forward to after the kitchen sink drama has so satisfyingly played itself out

review The Devil in the Snow 103 Sarah Armstrong Å 3 review read ☆ eBook or Kindle ePUB Å Sarah Armstrong Straight with her Then there’s the shaman living in her shed Shona soon discovers that the secrets she buried are as dangerous as the family curse haunting her moth. thank you to the publisher for a complimentary copy of this title in exchange for an honest reviewI don t think the synopsis does this book justice I initially though that this was going to be a humourous book and that s the one thing that it was not This book is very surreal at times and impossible to classify as a genre but it s definitely not a comedyThis book is told from the perspective of Shona and her mother Greta It covers the history of the women in their family and the traditions and poor choices which seem to have been passed down through the generationsI m sure that a lot of the subtext in this book flew right over my head I m a very literal kind of reader and I could tell while I was reading this book that there were hidden meanings to things that I just wasn t getting It didn t really affect my enjoyment I don t think but I would be aware of this when you give this book a readMy fascination with this book was held by the exploration of relationships between mothers and daughters Shona has shitty relationships with both her mother and her daughter she certainly hopes for a better one with her daughter but isn t prepared to make the effort with her mother The relationships between characters in this book were very authentic a narrative of messy lives and how people try to make their best in a bad situation even if they re responsible for getting in the situation in the first placeArmstrong s writing style is very much in the genre of literary fiction in my mind adding than a dash of poetry and subtext for you to dwell on as you go through the book Her characters are believable and well developed even though I can t say I really liked a single one of them which is a sign of a job well done on the author s part My conclusion is that I would recommend this book to fans of literary fiction looking for a profound look at the relationships between mothers and daughters rather than the suspenseful thriller I was expecting
