Ours Is The Winter by Laurie Ellingham

Here we are again with another awesome book to review, keep reading to see what I thought of Laurie Ellingham's new novel - Ours Is The Winter.

Blurb: Journeying across the Arctic, their pasts are about to catch up with them.
Erica, Molly and Noah are embarking on the challenge of a lifetime, driving Siberian huskies across the frozen wilderness of the Arctic. Cut off from the world and their loved ones and thrown together under gruelling conditions, it isn’t long before the cracks start to show.
Erica has it all. A loving husband, a successful career and the most adorable baby daughter. But Erica has been living a double life, and as she nears her fortieth birthday her lies threaten to come crashing down.
Molly was on her way to stardom. But when her brother died, so did her dreams of becoming an Olympic champion. Consumed by rage and grief, she has shut out everyone around her, but now she’s about to learn that comfort can come from the most unexpected places.
Noah has a darkness inside him and is hounded by nightmares from his past. Tortured, trapped and struggling to save his fractured relationship, he knows this journey is not going to help, but try telling his girlfriend that.
As their lives and lies become ever more entwined, it becomes clear that in the frozen wilds there is nowhere to hide.


This is the first book I've read by Laurie, but I'll definitely have to get my hands on One Endless Summer now. I do love when a book captures you so much you keep reading until the early hours of the morning not even realising what the time is, this book did just that, I loved every page of it.

Firstly I absolutely loved that this book is set somewhere completely different to most books these days. It's totally on my bucket list to be pulled my huskies across the snow. Each of the characters have their own issues to overcome and you find yourself realising how relatable their issues are to real life.  I don't usually like when a book jumps from different characters stories or points of view but I actually really enjoyed how you found out just a little more about each character bit by bit, you really got the know them.

I feel Laurie really captures the essence of her characters perfectly, it makes you want to keep turning page after page to find out more about them. She writes her characters and scenes so effortlessly. beautiful read.

Author bio: When I'm not running around after my two children, my husband, our Cockerpoo Rodney, or just plain running, I love nothing more than disappearing into the fictional world of my characters preferably with a large coffee and a Twix (or two) to hand.

When I am in the thick of a character crisis, I can often be seen walking around the village with my jumper on inside out and back to front, chatting (and occasionally laughing) away to myself. 

I have a first class honours degree in psychology and a background in Public Relations, both of which help in everything I do.



In this awesome giveaway is 1 signed paperback of Laurie's previous book, “One Endless Summer”.
