The Snow Owl by Jon Hartling

The Snow OwlThe Snow Owl by Jon Hartling

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Ben thinks his son's talk of the magical kingdom of Lukana is just typical childhood imagination. But one winter day, when seven year-old Eric sculpts a snow owl in his backyard, he seems to set in motion events that cannot be anything but magical. Now Ben faces the terrifying prospect of losing his only child to a wintry spirit... a spirit that just might be the boy's true.

My Thoughts.......

A young mother dies in childbirth and begs her husband to forgive her and accept the child. He looks down at a child that can't possibly be his, and decides that he loved his wife enough to raise her child even if she was unfaithful once. The boy is a sunny, bright child with an unusual preference for cold weather and a great imagination that insists he can talk to owls .The young child tells his father that the owls are coming for him and that he is a long lost prince.

Despite the initial thoughts of non belief running through Eric's fathers head I liked how he listen to the boy and what he had to say and how the father set out to prove if what the boy was saying was true. It was a short but moving story with a magical flair and enjoyable this book could have ended with several different endings.

My Thoughts....

A touching and enduring short story about a young boy and remembrance of his life with his loving grandparents.A touching story that brought tears to my eyes at the very end. This young boy was blessed in the fact that his grandparent's we so involved in his life and the impact that they left once gone. I was fortunate enough to say goodbye and be there with my grandmother when she passed on as she was my best friend and I was blessed with the chance to say goodbye and that it is important to do so.I spoke chatted and told her all the things I wanted her to know and that I loved her and wanted to be here for he in the end. So ,I know how the author felt regretting as a young boy that he never got that chance you feel that you have unfinished business.I myself would have felt the same.Grandparents play and important part in our every day lives and this author seemed to have a wonderful and loving relationship with his grand-parents where he should feel very blessed as the kids growing up today could care less and they are missing out on so much.
