"With luscious and hypnotic prose, Rena Rossner tells a gripping, powerful story of family, sisterhood, and two young women trying to find their way in the world." - Madeline Miller, bestselling author of Circe



In a remote village surrounded by vast forests on the border of Moldova and Ukraine, sisters Liba and Laya have been raised on the honeyed scent of their Mami's babka and the low rumble of their Tati's prayers. But when a troupe of mysterious men arrives, Laya falls under their spell -- despite their mother's warning to be wary of strangers. And this is not the only danger lurking in the woods.



As dark forces close in on their village, Liba and Laya discover a family secret passed down through generations. Faced with a magical heritage they never knew existed, the sisters realize the old fairy tales are true. . .and could save them all.



Discover a magical tale of secrets, heritage, and fairy tales weaving through history that will enchant readers of The Bear and the Nightingale, Uprooted and The Golem and the Jinni.

For more from Rena Rossner, check out The Light of the Midnight Stars.  Rena Rossner lives in Israel, where she works as a literary agent. All eight of her great grandparents immigrated to America to escape the pogroms, from towns like Dubossary and Kupel. It is their story, together with her love of Jewish mythology and fantasy, which inspired her to write her debut novel, The Sisters of the Winter Wood. "With luscious and hypnotic prose, Rena Rossner tells a gripping, powerful story of family, sisterhood, and two young women trying to find their way in the world. I gulped it down!"-Madeline Miller, author of The Song of Achilles and Circe "Intricately crafted, gorgeously rendered...full of heart, history, and enchantment."-Publishers Weekly (starred review) "Rossner's debut weaves a richly detailed story of Jewish identity and sisterhood... emotionally charged, full of sharp historical detail and well-deployed Yiddish phrases...Ambitious and surprising."-Kirkus "A beautiful tale of sisterly love and Jewish identity [with] haunting, otherworldly allure."-BookPage "The Sisters of the Winter Wood is a graceful, poetic, deeply moving novel. A simply gorgeous book in every sense."-Louisa Morgan, author of A Secret History of Witches "An enthralling debut."-Lavie Tidhar, author of World Fantasy Award winner Osama "This dark fairy tale about sisterly love and Jewish strength and courage, set against the backdrop of a deep and deadly winter forest, will haunt me for a long time. A powerful, emotional debut."-Julie C. Dao, author of Forest of a Thousand Lanterns "An incredible achievement - a rich literary fairytale, with all the cadences of the folk stories of old. The kind of book that Neil Gaiman and Naomi Novik might have together cooked up, it's far too easy to get lost in the forests between the pages of this book and disappear for days on end."-Robert Dinsdale, author of The Toymakers "This lyrical fairy tale of two sisters in a small village in Ukraine is a book to be savored rather than devoured." 

-Library Journal "A compelling narrative in a magical setting that felt completely real, and the complex characters and plot twists enticed me to keep turning the pages."-Historical Novel Society "The Sisters of the Winter Wood is a vivid, fascinating, excellently drawn story o
