The snow child . . .

A heart moving faerietale, the first story by Eowyn Ivey
 Set in deepest Alaska in 1920, it was inspired by a Russian fairy tale 
  about a child made from snow - snegurochka - who later comes to life.
" . . .a couple creates a child out of snow. 
When she appears on their doorstep as a little girl, wild and secretive
their lives are changed forever."
