Snow Queen: Love in a landscape of ice & snow

Mid December. Snow lies over much of the south-east and Rosie Deakin, seven months pregnant, and recently arrived in the middle-of-nowhere, thinks fondly of summer lunches in a London park. As Kit, her husband, tries to get them settled into their new house before Christmas, he feels that nothing he does will ever please her. So when, one snowy morning, a chance encounter introduces him to their mysterious neighbour, Kit keeps the meeting to himself, while Rosie is hiding a secret of her own that's followed her all the way to the middle-of-nowhere.
