Book 16 (2011): Light On Snow

This novel by Anita Shreve was told by the voice of an adult woman, in flashback, to her 12th year of life, over the course of a few days after she and her father find an abandoned baby in the woods.

She tells the story of finding the baby and how she and her father ended up in a small house in the woods in New Hampshire.

I like the voice of Nicky and the relationship she has with her father. I like the relationship she develops with Charlotte. It's a beautifully told story. It's a quiet and gentle story. (288 pages)
