А modern classic, "The Snow Goose" is set in the years running up to the remarkable rescue of the British army stranded on the beaches of Dunkirk during World War II. On the desolate marshes along the English coast, a young girl, Frith, comes to seekhelp from Philip Rhayader, a reclusive painter who lives in an abandoned lighthouse. She carries in her arms a wounded snow goose. Frith is frightened of Rhayader, but he is gentler than his strange appearance suggests and nurses the goose back to health. Over the following decade, Frith and the migrating snow goose return to the lighthouse each fall. An unspoken bond forms between Frith and Rhayader-and the snow goose. And then, in May 1940, hearing of the plight of the British army 100 miles across the English Channel, Philip says good-bye to Frith and heroically sets out in his tiny, sailboat for Dunkirk.
