Snow Country, along with two other books in the Copper Island series, explore themes of formulaic Christianity, suffering, forgiveness, and intimacy.
Kristin Neva writes small-town, inspirational fiction set in the beautiful Keweenaw of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.
The books are set on Copper Island, which averages over 200 inches of snow annually. The fictional towns of Douglass and Quincy mirror the real towns of Houghton and Hancock, and although the names of businesses and persons are fictional, the history, landmarks, and spirit of the region described in the novel are real.
For example, several characters in the books are Finnish-Americans, those second and third generation Americans who still hold onto parts of the ethnic culture brought by copper miners in the late 1800s.
