In the depths of the long midwinter night young Mara waits in the tents with the members of her tribe. Celebrations and rituals are underway to usher in the end of winter's darkness and welcome the light of the sun. But not all is well. Her mother has sickened and her end nears. Lessons of life and death and the hope of new birth are revealed to Mara.
