Light on snow by Anita Shreve

About the book

The events of a December afternoon on which a father and his daughter find an abandoned infant in the snow will forever alter 11-year-old Nicky Dillon’s understanding of the world which she is about to enter and the adults who inhabit it.

Reviewed by Everton Village

All readers enjoyed this book. Simple but with strong emotional overtones and a story line with many possibilities as the plot unwinds.  A great deal of empathy for the girl  and lots of hidden depths and response from readers about the “system” and its effect on the individual.

  1. Review by Rucstall Mums
    An easy read, some interesting plot strands but not fully realised. We all finished the book but some reluctantly.
