The Tenderness of Wolves by Stef Penney

This is an unusual mystery. It takes place in 1860s Canada. This is a multilayered book. There are several themes running through the book and subplots besides the main mystery. I did this in a bookgroup and some people thought there were too many characters and didn't understand the purpose of certain story threads. Several people loved the book however, and I did too. The story engrossed me from the first paragraph. The snowy, desolate landscape added to the sense of mystery.
