Less grim than some of the author's work, it nonetheless retains a gritty feel. The story is of a wedding, beginning as the bride dresses and ending at the midnight toast at the reception. Along the way we explore the families and closest acquaintances of the couple as well as the hearts and histories of the bride and groom, as the night with accompanying heavy snows goes on. Ansay is a master of imagery - I'll retain the image of the bride in her mother's too-hastily altereed gown with the pearls dropping off at every move for a long time.

Had a hard time getting through this book. There was nothing inherently wrong with it except for the fact that I didn't really get the point. It had the makings for an interesting story - quirky lodge, wedding, disapproving family members, murder. But nothing really happened and I was kind of bored with it. Bummer.
