The Lady and the Fox • 2014 • magical realism short story by Kelly Link

★★★

Meta: This magical realism short story appeared 2014 in the anthology My True Love Gave Me.

Synopsis: 

A crucial component of any relationship is the capacity to surprise the one you love.

Every Christmas, a strange boy appears for one night in the snowy garden of the Honeywells – no one notices him but for a girl who falls in love with him and sets out to resolve this mystery.

Review: Multi award winner Kelly Link demonstrates her clear and concise skill with this coming-of-age Christmas romance. I like her sometimes elliptical prose which changes the rhythm as the girl grows older.
