A lovely WWII era story of New England island life. You become immersed in the day to day living of young Alice and the rather bizarre Mr. Tibbit. Seemingly completely different individuals, their fates parallel each other in startling ways. It is a book you can linger with.

Katherine Towler's debut novel is a beautifully written coming of age story. Set in a small island off the coast of New England, it takes place before and during World War II. Brimming with wonderfully drawn characters and sense of place, Snow Island was a wonderful read. I was sorry to see it end. This is the first book of a trilogy. Ms. Towler is a very talented writer and I am looking forward to reading "Evening Ferry".
