Burying the truth in the snow can't conceal it forever.

Leona was born a survivor—one of the few sheltered in a prison that withstood the plummeting temperatures of the frozen days. Now, as the weather slowly warms, she struggles to understand a culture and society vastly different than the one created by her elders. Standing on the cusp of her seventeenth birthday, the day she will officially become a woman and eligible for marriage, the tiny world she had long since accepted suddenly seems stifling.  Conflicts and curiosity propel her beyond the fences of her home into a barren and uncertain future, with one asset that just might keep her alive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I devoured this book like a ravenous wolf with a steak! It was by turns fun, scary, sexy, and sad. A perfect mix for a great read. It has an interesting premise that revolves closely around issues of fertility and a woman's value to society. As a woman who has chosen not to have children I found it quite fascinating. All of the many threads of the story come together at the end, some in surprising ways while others were a bit predictable. Once I began to see the pattern I knew who the mystery men were. This didn't take away from my enjoyment in any way as I began to anticipate the characters' reactions to discovering what I already suspected. I can't wait to pick up the second book in the series!
