When Annette gets Lucien into trouble at school, he decides to get back at her by threatening the most precious thing in the world to her: her little brother, Dani. But tragedy strikes. Annette knows she can never forgive Lucien for what he did to Dani, and she is going to make sure that no one else does either. She is so filled with rage that she sets out to alienate and humiliate Lucien at every turn. But then some surprising things began to happen to both of them.

Patricia St.John’s stories are classics of their time and have been enjoyed by generations of children. This edition of Treasures of the Snow combines her superb skill as a storyteller with language sensitively adapted to a new generation of children.

    " This book has 26 chapters and is the perfect Christmas book. My family read this out loud as every December. Starting on December first, my mother would read one chapter aloud to us every night. After we opened presents on Christmas day, we would lie around listening to the end of the story. Even though my brothers and I knew the story inside and out, it's description of sin and forgiveness, and the loving grace of God was still beautiful every time. I can remember my mom starting to cry (every time!) as she read the part where the old man tells his life story. She would have to pass the book to Dad who never managed to finish the chapter without at least a wobble in his voice. It's a fabulous book! "

Patricia St. John (1919–1993) was born in England. In the early 1950s she went to Morocco where she served as a missionary nurse for twenty-seven years. She traveled in Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East, as the settings of her novels reflect. In 1977 she returned to England, where she cared for elderly relatives and ministered from her home to youths, single parents, and the elderly. Her books have been translated into numerous foreign languages.
