The Snow Goose

by

Philip Rhayader lives alone in an abandoned lighthouse on the desolate Great Marsh of Essex. One afternoon, a hauntingly beautiful child, Fritha, visits Rhayader, bringing with her an injured snow goose. At first, Fritha is scared of Rhayader, with his sinister hump and crooked hand, but he is gentle and kind and Fritha begins to visit regularly. When the snow goose departs for home, Rhayader is left alone again. The following winter, the snow goose and Fritha return to the lighthouse. Time passes and one year Fritha is frightened to discover her feelings for Rhayader. But this is 1940 and Rhayader is setting sail for Dunkirk to help the soldiers trapped on the beaches. Fritha never sees Rhayader again. But the story of the saviour with the snow goose passes from soldier to soldier and into legend... Hide synopsis

Snow Goose

by Donna D on Dec 16, 2011

I found the reviews about this book on this site helpful when I obtained it to read for a book discussion at Joclyn Art Museum. I found the book very moving and powerful as did everyone at the Book Event, which was then tied to art on display. The group discussion led to much information shared by the group which expanded the power of the book. This book certainly deserves a 5 star rating.

I love this book. I had a copy and somehow lost it. I was glad to get another copy. It is so easy but also so touching.
