Entranced by the light of first love, Anton comes to life.

Until his country declares war on hers. 1927: For Lena, life with her mother in a small town has been cosseted and cold.

After a few years of schooling, she encounters a young lawyer who spirits her away to Vienna.

However, what she imagines to be love soon crumbles, and she leaves the city behind to take a post at the snow-capped sanatorium, the Schloss Seeblick. 1933: Having lost many friends on the Eastern Front, Anton is sent to write about the mysterious Schloss Seeblick.

In this place, on the banks of a silvery lake where the roots of human suffering are laid bare, two people will see each other as if for the first time. _____________________Sweeping across Europe as it recovers from one war and awaits the coming of another, SNOW COUNTRY is a landmark novel of exquisite yearnings, dreams of youth and the sanctity of hope.

In elegant, shimmering prose, Sebastian Faulks has produced an epic love story of timeless resonance. _____________________'Faulks on his best form' Telegraph'Fascinating . . . impeccably researched . . .
