Love and Eskimo Snow
Sarah Holt
Click cover to enlarge
Our dictionaries tell us that love, the infamous noun, can be
defined precisely as ‘a strong feeling of affection’. But that’s
not Missy’s experience of love. For her, affection and
passion play second fiddle to commitment and pledges. It’s
not Elizabeth’s sense of the word, either; she’s got it pegged
as intimacy and confidences.

Then there’s Claire, for whom love is bed, and Bea, who has
spent a lifetime pondering the true meaning of love – right
up until the fateful October morning on which this story
starts. But is it ever possible to pick genuine, ‘true’ love out
in an identity parade? Or is love more like the Sami Eskimo
concept of snow: summed up only in two hundred different
words, and never falling the same way twice?

Sarah Holt’s debut novel is chick-lit with a twist, romantic
fiction taken to its post-modern conclusion: ingenious,
imaginative, surprisingly informative, and above all, a
terrific read.

‘You should never take
anything at face value. Even
snow isn’t just snow.’

Praise for Love and Eskimo Snow:

‘Imaginative, quirky and immensely readable. Sarah
obviously has her finger on the pulse of the modern dating
scene ... The story ripples with humour, has glimpses of
pathos and an ingenious twist ... I have no hesitation in
recommending this contemporary tale of love and romance.’
– Julie Sayed, Lincolnshire Echo
