Synopsis:

A modern classic, THE SNOW GOOSE is set in the years running up to the remarkable evacuation of Dunkirk in the Second World War. On the desolate Essex marshes, a young girl, Fritha, comes to seek help from Phillip Rhayader, a recluse who lives in an abandoned lighthouse. She carries in her arms a wounded snow goose. Fritha is frightened of Rhayader, but he is gentler than his appearance suggests and nurses the goose back to health. Over the following months and years, Fritha only visits the lighthouse when the snow goose is there. And every summer, when it flies away, Rhayader is left alone once more. Beautifully written, with a powerful ending, and breathtakingly illustrated by Angela Barrett, this is an exquisite edition of Gallico's masterpiece.
