About this title


What is life like for a girl coming of age in the shadow of World War II, a girl who lives on a small, isolated island populated by quahoggers and eccentrics?

This tender first novel follows the fate of sixteen-year-old Alice Daggett, who still feels the presence of her father who died six years earlier, and of George Tibbit, a reclusive loner who returns to the island each year in an excessive act of homage to the two women who raised him there.

Snow Island tells of their isolated lives and the impact that WWII has on all of their worlds. Both Alice and George find their lives linked, and changed, forever by the events that happen far from the small New England community that defines them.

From the Publisher:

Ms. Towler's book is a piece of classical music—haunting, heartbreaking, resplendent. Her scenes are so clear, you can taste the pie, smell the air, and feel the summer sun on the back of your neck. Her characters are so alive they make you want to jump into the pages to help them.
