The Snow Angel by Lauren St John

Growing up in vibrant, crowded Nairobi, Makena has only one dream: to climb Mount Kenya like her hero, her mountain guide father.  But when her beautiful world is shattered, she finds that in the city’s dark places there are a thousand ways to fall, each more deadly than any crevasse.  In a world of strangers, does she dare trust Snow, whose ballet dreams are haunted by a past she’s still running from?  And is the sparkling fox friend or foe?

After a fresh start in the Scottish Highlands turns bad, Makena flees to the mountains.  But will they betray her or be the making of her?

Lauren St John’s stunning Christmas classic is about forgotten children, the power of nature to heal us and a girl who will climb mountains in search for a place to call home.

Peer & Press Reviews

A powerful thread of hope and humanity shines through the story, transforming it into something utterly life-affirming…  Cornish artist Catherine Hyde’s full-page illustrations elevate The Snow Angel into an exceptionally beautiful gift book, lending shape and atmosphere to the magic glimmering beneath the words of this modern-day fairytale.


An absolute triumph.  A hymn to mountains, lost children and kind hearts

Abi Elphinstone, author of The Dreamsnatcher

Beautifully written… but harrowing to read, precisely because [it] feels so real…  Any review of The Snow Angel wouldn’t be complete without a special mention of the black and white illustrations by Catherine Hyde which effectively evoke emotion and add to the book’s mystical atmosphere.
