A Snow Garden & Other Stories - Rachel Joyce
A Snow Garden & Other Stories, in the children's section of a charity shop, and the cover really did look like a children's book. But it is definitely not for children. It is a set of seven stories, which are all linked by one picture. Personally, I didn't understand the relevance of the picture to each story, and felt it was a little contrived, but apart from that, I did enjoy all the stories. My favourite was A Snow Garden, followed by Trees. All the stories were quite sad, but there was an element of hope in each. It was a clever writing process, which was a bit confusing at times, but worked out well in the end.
