"On a snowy Christmas morning, Holly Judge awakens, the fragments of a nightmare--something she must write down--floating on the edge of her consciousness. Something followed them from Russia. On another Christmas morning thirteen years ago, she and her husband Eric were in Siberia to meet the sweet, dark-haired Rapunzel they desperately wanted. How they laughed at the nurses of Pokrovka Orphanage #2 with their garlic and their superstitions, and ignored their gentle warnings. After all, their fairy princess Tatiana--baby Tatty--was perfect. As the snow falls, enveloping the world in its white silence, Holly senses that something is not right, has not been right in the years since they brought their daughter--now a dangerously beautiful, petulant, sometimes erratic teenager--home. There is something evil inside this house. Inside themselves. How else to explain the accidents, the seemingly random and banal misfortunes. Trixie, the cat. The growth on Eric's hand. Sally the hen, their favorite, how the other chickens turned on her. The housekeeper, that ice, a bad fall. The CDs scratched, every one. But Holly must not think of these things. She and Tatiana are all alone. Eric is stuck on the roads and none of their guests will be able to make it through the snow. With each passing hour, the blizzard rages and Tatiana's mood darkens, her behavior becoming increasingly disturbing and frightening. Until, in every mother's worst nightmare, Holly finds she no longer recognizes her daughter"--

Reviews

"It is not enough to say that Kasischke's language is 'poetic' . . . [T]he language catapults us into another plane of existence, one of facade and reflection."--New York Times Book Review "A genuinely disturbing tale, each layer perfectly crafted, stacked together like a set of Russian nesting dolls, the tiniest one at the center the horrific secret that everything else depends upon....Both a masterwork of evocative prose and a bone-chilling page-turner."--Jennifer McMahon, New York Times-bestselling author of The Winter People "If I could stand on a mountaintop and shout over the land, I would do it now: This book is magnificent! It's a gripping psychological thriller, at once both charmingly domestic and flat-out terrifying. Laura Kasischke writes so well that she leaves me inspired and very, very jealous."--Elin Hilderbrand, author of Beautiful Day "Thought-provoking and chilling, MIND OF WINTER will have you looking over your shoulder as you tear through the pages to the shocking and heartbreaking conclusion. It will leave you questioning not only what is real, but also what it means to be a good mother."--Kimberly McCreight, New York Times-bestselling author of Reconstructing Amelia "MIND OF WINTER is a tightly coiled story of suffocating love and undeniable horror. Its grip is remarkably chilling, masterfully poetic, and psychologically unrelenting."--Ivy Pochoda, author of Visitation Street "A book that will haunt you for days and long, long nights after reading."--Booklist (starred review) "An unknown horror hovers just out of reach in this gripping psychological thriller...Kasischke skillfully mixes an insightful look at a damaged woman with a twisty plot that builds to a shocking ending."--Publishers Weekly "Shocking."--Vogue.com "Leave-the-lights-on-tonight frightening, with a quiet edge of horror that is much more effective than gore."--NPR "Impossible to put down."--BookPage "A nightmare-inducing domestic mystery...Kasischke knows that what lurks hidden in the shadows is scarier than any monster we can see. She also knows that, scared as we may be, we can't resist a peek."--Boston Globe "A terrifying brew of family drama and horror...The awesome ending doesn't disappoint."--Entertainment Weekly It is not enough to say that Kasischke s language is poetic . . .
