Snow Island is the story of two strangers who inhabit the same remote island off the New England coast: sixteen-year-old Alice Daggett still feels the presence of her father who died five years earlier while she shoulders the responsibility of running the family store; and George Tibbits, a loner in his forties and the owner of the island's twin houses. While George struggles to make peace with his troubled past and Alice befriends the twenty-six-year-old who tends the island lighthouse, both characters learn the hard lesson of what it means to love. This tender tale about the power of place and memory plumbs the depths of two unique and uncharted lives. As America is drawn into World War II, George and Alice find their fates shaped by events that happen far from the small Rhode Island community that defines them.
