A poignant, radiant tale of a mother’s ceaseless devotion to her son, The Snowy Road is the story of a family that loses everything due to an older son’s abuse of alcohol. This tragedy does not shake the mother’s resolve to continue to work hard for her younger son, making his happiness the sole goal in her life. The son behaves contemptuously, though, oblivious to his mother’s sacrifice, until the day he learns of her long walk home along the snowy mountain road years before when he left home.Read a review by Charles Montgomery here.
