Publisher's Summary

On the desolate Essex marshes, a young girl named Fritha arrives at a remote lighthouse seeking help from its lonely inhabitant: Philip Rhayader, a crippled artist who has established a bird sanctuary on his land. The girl brings to him a wounded snow goose, which the gentle Philip takes under his care. Soon a friendship blossoms as he and Fritha nurse the bird back to health, though as the years pass, Fritha visits the lighthouse only when the snow goose is there. Then the outbreak of World War II draws Philip away from his home to help in the war effort - and suddenly Fritha has a new reason to return to the lighthouse.
Beautifully written all the way through to its powerful ending, The Snow Goose has been in print since its original publication in 1941.

Lovely story

Would you consider the audio edition of The Snow Goose to be better than the print version?

Did not read the print version.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The painter - he was kind, loving, sympathetic.

Have you listened to any of Ralph Cosham’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Ralph Cosham was my favorite reader. He will be sorely missed. I like him so much that I did a search of all his books. That is how I found THE SNOW GOOSE.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No but it was so short, I did finish it in one sitting!

Any additional comments?

Buyer beware - this is a VERY short book.
