Lost in Snowy Valley - Heather Trim

Book: Lost in Snowy Valley 
Author: Heather Trim
Releasedate: 9th of November, 2023

Twelve-year-old Via has been diagnosed with severe scoliosis and forced to wear a back brace and seeks comfort in her family's ceramic Christmas village. But she notices something is missing—her favorite figurine. 
Either by miracle or magic, Via and her mother are suddenly transported into the Victorian Christmas village on a journey of self-discovery. Along the way, she realizes that it's not only the figurine that was lost, but a part of herself that can only be found in the enchanting world of Snowy Valley.

Oh boy. If you want to get in the mood for Christmas with a heartwarming and heartfelt story, then this is your go to this Christmas. 
The story is very suitable to read with younger children as well, but it’s also entertaining for the teens and older if you like a feelgood story.

Heathers writing style is easy going and she paints the picture just perfectly. You almost feel like you’re there in the story with Via and her mother. I love the tiny details she has put in the story for the Victorian time. I do have a soft spot for Victorian stories, so she had me there. Heather does have the talent to make people feel what the main character is feeling and you get why Via thinks how she thinks. 

It’s not a superlong story, so you can easily read it with an afternoon, a cup of tea and a blanket!
