LoveReading View on North Child

This is an epic that fans of Philip Pullman’s Dark Materials trilogy will thoroughly enjoy.  Full of magic, of high drama, of superstitions and of compelling characters, readers will be held spellbound by Edith Patou’s lyrical writing.

The world of the north is cold but can Rose with the help of a white bear find her heart once again?


A piece of passion from the Editor:
This is a book to curl up with and let it sweep you away on an epic journey of romance, fantasy and adventure.  Its timeless appeal touches everyone.


North Child Synopsis

A story of magic, love, loss, and betrayal, based on the traditional fairytale "East of the Sun, West of the Moon". Rose was born into the world facing north, and as a north child, superstition says that she will be a wanderer. This prophecy is fulfilled when she is taken on the back of a white bear to a mysterious empty castle.
