A Welsh grandmother tells her granddaughter the story of Sian who, long ago, with great bravery, saved her village from the Grey Man. Our heroine journeyed to find the Winterwife to ask for her help. Sian, the Winterwife and her giant silver fox Arian fly over the hills to the girl's village. They bring the snow and with it happiness back to the valley.

For readers aged seven and upwards.

This is a delightful folk tale written with an apparently simple fluency that conceals skillful construction and serious meaning. Sian is one of the few in the village clear-sighted enough to understand why calamity has struck them and it is she who, because of her youth, courage and sound perceptions can bring a limited salvation (even the Winterwife cannot undo the past, but the future is assured). Centuries of fairy tale and mythology resonate through this short story and the realism of the Welsh village setting and the much more magical environment of the Winterwife herself are vividly brought to life. Highly recommended for readers of all ages. - J A Humphrey. A charming, slightly offbeat Celtic empowerment story, well written. Hopefully we will get more from the author. Well worth reading. - F. Beddington. When I first started reading this tale, I was expecting one of those boring stories, but to my surprise it kept me enthralled. This fairy tale captured me from its beginning to the very end. I can truly say it was very well written. I highly recommend it. - Joyce Van Kirk.
