Description
Captivating and boldly imaginative, with a tale of sisterhood at its heart, Rena Rossner's debut fantasy invites you to enter a world filled with magic, folklore, and the dangers of the woods. "With luscious and hypnotic prose, Rena Rossner tells a gripping, powerful story of family, sisterhood, and two young women trying to find their way in the world." -- Madeline Miller, author of The Song of Achilles and Circe In a remote village surrounded by vast forests on the border of Moldova and Ukraine, sisters Liba and Laya have been raised on the honeyed scent of their Mami's babka and the low rumble of their Tati's prayers. But when a troupe of mysterious men arrives, Laya falls under their spell -- despite their mother's warning to be wary of strangers. And this is not the only danger lurking in the woods. As dark forces close in on their village, Liba and Laya discover a family secret passed down through generations. Faced with a magical heritage they never knew existed, the sisters realize the old fairy tales are true. . .and could save them all. br> Praise for The Sisters of the Winter Wood : Publishers Weekly: Best Book of 2018: SF/Fantasy/Horror BookPage: Best Book of 2018: Science Fiction & Fantasy "Intricately crafted, gorgeously rendered. . .full of heart, history, and enchantment." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review) "A richly detailed story of Jewish identity and sisterhood. . . emotionally charged, full of sharp historical detail and well-deployed Yiddish phrases. . .Ambitious and surprising." -- Kirkus

display_descriptionA tale inspired by Jewish mythology is set in a woodland village on the border of Moldova and Ukraine and follows the experiences of two sheltered sisters who uncover a secret magical heritage. Raised in a small village surrounded by vast forests, Liba and Laya have lived a peaceful sheltered life, even if they've heard of troubling times for Jews elsewhere. When their parents travel to visit their dying grandfather, the sisters are left behind in their home in the woods. Liba discovers the secret that their Tati can transform into a bear, and their Mami into a swan, she realizes the old fairy tales are true. She must guard this secret carefully, even from her beloved sister. When a troupe of mysterious men appear in town and Laya falls under their spell, they are not the only dangers lurking in the woods. Can the sisters save their people from the dark forces that draw closer? -- adapted from goodreads.com info.
