If it hadnt been for Ingrid and Gregs one crazy determination to buy back the beautiful, ancestral Snow home on the main road, there would have been no incentive to leave the back road camp.Elisabeth Ogilvie has woven a tense, moving drama about a town, a family - and poverty. This is a truly unusual book.
