Just finished Anita Shreve's "Light on Snow" and I have to say, my emotions were in good hands. I listened to the audiobook and was so impressed, I bought the actual book to read passages over again. This book is not only touching, but Shreve's vocabulary is quite appropriate to a pre-teen girl and brings the reader close to the main character. We walk her grief with her. With simple prose, Shreve brings us closely into the point of view and emotions of a young girl trying to deal with almost insurmountable grief while at the same time, she puts her own needs second as she.

Just finished Anita Shreve's "Light on Snow" and I have to say, my emotions were in good hands.

Finishing either the 4th or 5th Anita Shreve book and I'm just wrecked, as usual. It happens the same way every time so far. I begin reading, the story is set on the East Coast, Vermont, New Hampshire, by the ocean, and I think to myself, hmm, I don't think I can relate to this.

Hachette UK, 27 нояб. Twin tragedies, one resulting in deaths and one in a rescue, bookend this fast-paced story by the beloved Shreve, author of the fantastic Weight of Water, who died recently. Daughter Nicky and father. I watched my father run forward in his snowshoes the way one sometimes does in dreams, unable to make the legs move fast enough. I ran to the place where he knelt. I looked down into the sleeping bag. A tiny face gazed up at me, the eyes wide despite their many folds. Пользовательский отзыв - EllenCam - LibraryThing.

Anita Shreve become involved

Anita Shreve become involved. Clara, as it happened, was three weeks early, and the sudden labor pains caught my parents by surprise. I was reading on my bed. My father seemed frantic in the way that parents do when they don’t want to alarm a child but can’t help themselves. He pulled clothes from bureau drawers and stuffed them into a paper bag. I went in my pajamas, my jacket wrapped around.

What makes a family? That's what twelve-year-old Nicky Dillon wonders after she and her widowed father discover a wailing abandoned baby in the snow-filled woods near their New Hampshire home.

I am a big fan of Anita Shreve since reading her book "The Pilot's wife". I think that she is a great author. This is my kind of book. This book was a very easy read. It was a book club assignment, so not necessarily one I would have chosen on my own. I enjoyed the intrique, the relationship between the daughter and father, the glimpse into a more "grown-up world". I was glad it had a good ending.

What makes a family? That's what twelve-year-old Nicky Dillon wonders after she and her widowed father discover a wailing abandoned baby in the snow-filled woods near their New Hampshire home. Through the days that follow, the Dillons and an unexpected visitor who soon turns up at their door-a young woman evidently haunted by her own terrible choices-face a thicket of decisions, each seeming to carry equal possibilities of heartbreak and redemption. Writing with all the emotional resonance that has drawn millions of readers around the world to her fiction, Anita Shreve unfolds in Light on Snow a tender and surprising novel about love and its consequences.

I loved this story. Shreve writes so well and her stories are always different and never the same. The only reason that I gave it a 4 was that I listened to it on CD and the reader was somewhat bland. Otherwise I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a very interesting story that is written extremely well. Yes, two entwining love stories but, the main story line is the relationship between a gruff elderly man and his friendship with a much younger man that betters both lives and increases their understanding of themselves and their relationships.

The author really knows the mind & heart of 12 y/o girl. Just on the edge of adolescence, Nicky has to endure real loss & dislocation that occurs in maturing & realizing parents are people the kids don't know yet. She seeks to recapture the idealized child- mother relationship w/ various women but especially Charlotte who has also experienced loss & death but from the other side. She recognizes that her father is more rigid & judgmental than she'd believed but a good & loving man regardless. Warren is a flexible authority who is able to contain the Dillons' enormous grief & reassure them that in letting go, they are letting be.

Light On Snow was a book that I could enjoy immediately. I think the reader will find it an quick, easy read. However, the book tackles some challenging issues- the sudden death of members of a close-knit family and how that loss affected the remaining father and daughter.Their approach to events in the story seemed to be influenced by that experience. We are left with a sense of hope for those two characters; that they will eventually establish a more permanent sense of normal. Anita Shreve does not disappoint with this story. Yet, it left this reader wanting to know if this father and daughter were successful in their endeavors as well as certain situations they were compelled to deal with.

Losing family members is painful. Not dealing with grief in a healthy manner can be paralyzingly . Sometimes dealing with grief comes at the most unexpected time and place . If it clears the crippling hold it has , you are able to move on stronger.

I have read most of Anita Shreve's novels over the years and I usually rate them at a 4 or higher. But this one just didn't seem up to her usual standards. First of all, it's very short. The font is very large as is the spacing, so even though the book is average size (250 pages or so?) it's actually much shorter. It's also a small story, with just 3 main characters and action that takes place over just a few days plus some flashbacks. This brevity would be fine, except I felt that it ended rather abruptly. The story, which has tragedy and longing at its core, ends with everything all tied up in a trite little bow. I thought the last 20 pages or so were ridiculously predictable and overall left me disappointed with the story as a whole. If you're looking for a good Shreve story, look to some her others - The Pilot's Wife, Sea Glass, Strange Fits of Passion - and skip this one.

Beautiful book about the ties that bind between a father and daughter in a strange and stressful situation. Also, it is a tale of good vs evil and a relationship between a girl-child and a young woman who may or may not be guilty of a crime. i am re-reading all of Ms. Shreve's books; it has been a decade or more between my first encounter with most of them ... and I am greatly enjoying myself anew. She remains at the top of my literary fiction addiction and my firm devotion to semantics. Lovely words --- brilliant writer.

This book is not only touching, but Shreve's vocabulary is quite appropriate to a pre-teen girl and brings the reader close to the main character. We walk her grief with her. With simple prose, Shreve brings us closely into the point of view and emotions of a young girl trying to deal with almost insurmountable grief while at the same time, she puts her own needs second as she supports her father's difficult path to life again.

If any writers want to read how to use backstory (what happened in the past) to advance the current story, this book is a perfect example. The current story deepens the backstory and the backstory brings understanding and depth to the current story while keeping forward momentum. Really excellent, masterful writing.

This is a wonderful, emotional story and deals with difficult themes. I'm so glad I read this one!
A quick read, but a sweet story about a father and daughter coming to terms with life after the wife/mother is killed in an automobile accident. While walking they happen upon a newborn baby seemingly left to die. As the daughter comes into womanhood, a surprise character helps her to bridge the gap between the daughter and her dad.
