Publisher's Summary

Gigi Fenster’s A Good Winter is an enthralling psychological thriller, a dark and complex portrait of a troubled mind.

I looked after Lara. We both looked after Sophie and her baby. We had to. It’s not like Sophie was going to look after that baby herself. All she was interested in was weeping and wailing for her dead husband. She was so busy weeping and wailing for her dead husband that she rejected his baby who was right in front of her.

When Olga’s friend Lara becomes a grandmother, Olga helps out whenever she can. After all, it’s a big imposition on Lara, looking after her bereaved daughter and the baby. And the new mother is not exactly considerate.

But smouldering beneath Olga’s sensible support and loving generosity is a deep jealous need to be the centre of Lara’s attention and affection – a need that soon becomes a consuming, dangerous and ultimately tragic obsession.

Critic Reviews

"A powerful psychological thriller. Horrifying, relentless, masterful. Nothing will prepare you for the end." (Loraine Peck, author of The Second Son)

"A Good Winter is both a terrifying thriller and an intricate portrait of an obsessed and troubled mind.... Complex, confronting and utterly compelling. I couldn’t put it down." (Suzanne McCourt, author of The Tulip Tree and The Lost Child)
