Content descriptions

General Note: A novel.
Summary, etc.: At the edge of the Russian wilderness, winter lasts most of the year and the snowdrifts grow taller than houses. But Vasilisa doesn't mind - she spends the winter nights huddled around the embers of a fire with her beloved siblings, listening to her nurse's fairy tales. Above all, she loves the story of Frost, the blue-eyed winter demon, who appears in the frigid night to claim unwary souls. After Vasilisa's mother dies, her father brings home a new wife, who forbids the family from honoring the household spirits. Vasilisa is frightened, sensing that more hinges upon their rituals than anyone knows. As danger circles, Vasilisa must defy even the people she loves and call on gifts she has long concealed in order to protect her family from a threat that seems to have stepped from her nurse's most frightening tales.
