From the Man Booker-shortlisted author of The Dark Room, an extraordinary new novel.
Early on a grey November morning in 1941, only weeks after the German invasion, a small Ukrainian town is overrun by the SS. A Boy In Winter tells of the three days that follow and the lives that are overturned in the process. And in the midst of it all is the determined boy Yankel who will throw his and his young brother's chances of surviving to strangers.
A Boy In Winter is a story of hope when all is lost, and of mercy when the times have none.
