Synopsis: Ever since her sister, Agnes, died, Pearl has a tradition every time it snows. She makes a person out of snow. A snow sister. It makes Christmas feel a little less lonely.

26211739On Christmas Eve, her father receives a letter about a long-lost relative’s will. Is their luck about to change? In anticipation of a better Christmas, Pearl goes to beg credit at Mr Noble’s grocery to get ingredients for a Christmas pudding. But she is refused, and chased down the street where she is hit by a hansom cab. The snow is falling so hard that they can’t take her home. She’ll have to stay at Flintfield Manor overnight, in a haunted room… Will Pearl make it home for Christmas?

This gorgeously evocative Victorian Christmas story is the perfect stocking filler for girls ages 9-12.


Mini review: I love reading books by Emma Carroll, I also have such a connection to her characters and Pearl is no exception.

The Snow Sister is a novella and at 100 pages will be a quick read but it is a whole Christmas story, filled with a little adventure, heart and of course that Christmas message all good stories have. The book also contains some lovely full page illustrations.

I enjoyed The Snow Sister a lot and know I’ll be re-reading next Christmas.
