Belfast, 1963: unprecedented snowfall smothers and muffles the city and its inhabitants. In a house with windows flung defiantly open, a wife dies before her husband can make his confession. Elsewhere, an old woman searches desperately for a wedding dress in her dream of love. And in the very heart of the city, the purity of snow is tainted by the murder of a girl and as one man begins to unravel the dark secrets of the city, he knows he is in a race against time to find the murderer before the snow melts. With insight and compassion David Park peers into the souls of these ordinary people battling their secrets and desires.


'Luminously written ... intense and extraordinarily compelling' The Times 'Park is a writer of startling grace and integrity ... darkness seeps in to meet the relentless snow in this new world of black and white' Daily Telegraph 'Painted in prose so lyrical that you want to bathe in it ... A book to savour' Daily Mail 'Bewitching ... If you liked Ian McEwan's Atonement, you will adore this' Daily Mail
