Snow Goose

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.

The Snow Goose
