 Six Degrees of Separation

We begin with --


Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey
Based on a Russian fairy tale

Egg and Spoon by Gregory MacGuire
Also based on a Russian Fairy Tale. A YA favorite of mine.

Far Far Away by
Another YA favorite based on Grimm's Fairy Tales. 

Midwinter Blood by Marcus Sedgwick
This book is based on a Swedish tale and inspired by a painting by famed Swedish artist Carl Larsson.

This is the painting called, 'Midvinterblot', which inspired the book.

Girl in Hyacinth Blue by Susan Vreeland
Another book inspired by a piece of art, this one by Vermeer. The story takes place over 300 years from the time the painting was created.

People of the Book by Geraldine Brooks
Another story, this one about a book, which tells the story of what happened to the book over it's 500 year history. The author has a new book I'd like to read, Horse.

To the Bright Edge of the World by Eowyn Ivey
Sequel to or companion book to Snow Child. I haven't read this book, but I'd like to since I loved the first book in the series.

That brings us back around to Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey.
