Content descriptions

General Note: Electronic book.
Summary, etc.: --   -- Uprooted Winter lasts most of the year at the edge of the Russian wilderness, and in the long nights, Vasilisa and her siblings love to gather by the fire to listen to their nurseâs fairy tales. Above all, Vasya loves the story of Frost, the blue-eyed winter demon. Wise Russians fear him, for he claims unwary souls, and they honor the spirits that protect their homes from evil. Then Vasyaâs widowed father brings home a new wife from Moscow. Fiercely devout, Vasyaâs stepmother forbids her family from honoring their household spirits, but Vasya fears what this may bring. And indeed, misfortune begins to stalk the village. But Vasyaâs stepmother only grows harsher, determined to remake the village to her liking and to groom her rebellious stepdaughter for marriage or a convent. As the villageâs defenses weaken and evil from the forest creeps nearer, Vasilisa must call upon dangerous gifts she has long concealedâto protect her family from a threat sprung to life from her nurseâs most frightening tales. -- â -- The Bear and the NightingaleâRobin Hobb
