Snow Country is the novel that Sebastian has wanted to write for ten years. He has often talked about revisiting the Vienna of Human Traces, one of his favourite novels for scope, setting and breadth and here, in his new novel, you will find both familiar and new characters, themes and setting and at its heart, an epic love story. Here too is an exploration of the question at the heart of every Faulks novel: what is it that makes us so peculiarly, wonderfully, strangely human?
When they were little girls, Cibi, Magda and Livia make a promise to their father – that they will stay together, no matter what. Two of the sisters live in Israel today and have chosen Heather Morris to reimagine their story.
Their fight for survival takes them from the hell of Auschwitz-Birkenau to a death march across war-torn Europe and eventually home to Slovakia, now under iron Communist rule. Determined to begin again, they embark on a voyage of renewal, to the new Jewish homeland, Israel. Heartbreaking but ultimately uplifting.
