Light on Snow
Anita Shreve (Author)
DescriptionWhat makes a family? That's what twelve-year-old Nicky Dillon wonders after she and her widowed father discover a wailing abandoned baby in the snow-filled woods near their New Hampshire home. Through the days that follow, the Dillons and an unexpected visitor who soon turns up at their door-a young woman evidently haunted by her own terrible choices-face a thicket of decisions, each seeming to carry equal possibilities of heartbreak and redemption. Writing with all the emotional resonance that has drawn millions of readers around the world to her fiction, Anita Shreve unfolds in Light on Snow a tender and surprising novel about love and its consequences.

"Extraordinary....Like Hawthornes novel The Scarlet Letter, this is a story of passion within a framework of restraint....The language is crisp and evocative, the details marvelously placed."
