A Place Called Winter scored an average of 7.2.


“A few of the group took a while to get into this book but most enjoyed the story and were interested in the depiction of the harsh life of the Canadian settlers and the difficulties of being a gay man in that era. Some readers struggled to relate to the characters or felt that they were unconvincingly portrayed”

' I read a few pages and decided it was not for me'
