The Snow Goose

By Megan Thomas

Reading Paul Gallico’s novella will only take you a short time, but it resonates like a doorstop-sized novel.

A story of the unlikely friendship between Philip Rhayader, a hunchbacked artist who lives in a lighthouse, and a young girl, Fritha. A friendship kindled by nurturing a wounded snow goose that was shot in battle. A parable of love and friendship, amidst the seeming absence of it during wartime.
