by Adalbert Stifter

A timeless and enchanting novella, a gripping adventure unfolds in the picturesque mountains of Austria. Two young siblings, Conrad and Sanna, set out on a journey that will push the boundaries of their courage and resilience. When a severe snowstorm engulfs the region, Conrad and Sanna find themselves separated from their village and disoriented in the treacherous winter landscape. Determined to reunite with their family before Christmas, they must navigate through icy cliffs, frozen rivers, and relentless blizzards, all while battling the haunting specter of loneliness and despair. As the siblings face unimaginable challenges, their unbreakable bond becomes their sole source of hope. In a narrative brimming with raw emotions and vivid descriptions, Adalbert Stifter paints a breathtaking panorama of both the external world and the inner depths of human connection. The beauty and danger of the natural surroundings mirror the fragility and strength of the human spirit, as Conrad and Sanna learn the true meaning of sacrifice, resilience, and the enduring power of familial love.
