Product description


The Snow Gypsy is a jewel of a book with layers of light and depth. Through eloquent language, intriguing characters, and lavish historical detail, Lindsay Jayne Ashford brings to life two extraordinary women in post–World War II Europe and shows that although grief never completely fades, love and hope can still take us onward.” —Ann Howard Creel, bestselling author of The Whiskey Sea

“Ashford drew me in from the start with her exquisite prose, then took me on a heartfelt and exotic journey through southern Spain and Provence. Moving insights into the Spanish Civil War are woven throughout the novel, and the story is told with beauty and compassion. Highly recommended.” —Ella Carey, bestselling author of The Things We Don’t Say

The Snow Gypsy is a moving story of two women who have both been scarred by loss yet refuse to be defined by their pasts. Ashford immerses readers in the sights, smells, and tastes of Spain, from the sensuousness of flamenco dancing to the traditions of Gypsy culture and the lingering, tragic aftereffects of the Spanish Civil War. It’s easy to root for strong, inspiring heroines like Rose and Lola.” —Elizabeth Blackwell, bestselling author of In the Shadow of Lakecrest

“An intriguing and enlightening journey viewed through the eyes of two independent and passionate women haunted by the pasts they must reconcile.” —Gemma Liviero, author of Broken Angels and Pastel Orphans

From the Publisher

What I love most about this book is how author Lindsay Jayne Ashford has written a love story, but not in the romantic sense. This story is about the love between a brother and sister, a mother and child, and two fiercely devoted friends who could not be more different. Rose is determined to find her brother, who went missing in Spain. Lola has a connection to Rose’s brother, but she’s desperately afraid of digging up her past and losing her daughter. The Spanish Civil War has been over for nearly a decade, but the brutalities and betrayals have not been forgotten. The war pitted neighbor against neighbor and forced people to make terrible sacrifices. No one wants to talk, and everyone seems to be hiding something.

No matter what Rose and Lola discover, there will be loss. But the beauty of
The Snow Gypsy is that we see what Rose and Lola gain as they desperately fight to unearth the truth and protect the child they both love so dearly. We see their hope, not just to find Rose’s brother but also for a better world.

When the state of the world feels so uncertain, I take great inspiration from the love stories Lindsay Jayne Ashford so vividly brings to life here. Across seemingly unbridgeable divides,
The Snow Gypsy shows that love can and does prevail—even in the most unexpected of ways.

- Jodi Warshaw, Editor
