This novella offers a captivating account about faith, hope, and the unwavering determination of an immigrant family's struggle to sustain life. Ms Rocque's eloquent writing creatively and mindfully manages facts and fiction. Focused on the events following the birth of a premature infant, the author's attention to detail exemplifies the many ways this family loved and lived their life in America while maintaining a deep connection to their religion, traditions, and heritage.
To me the birth of Antoni and the family's focus to save the child during an especially harsh winter is symbolic of the unpredictable tenuous journey that immigrants often face when beginning a new life in an unfamiliar environment. Considering that the format of a novella is limited in length, the author manages to deliver an appealing story that relays a compelling description about how determination and the willingness of a small group of individuals working together made a difference not just in one child's life but in all of their lives.
There are stories in Until the Robin Walks on Snow waiting to be shared in greater detail including the friendship between the midwife and the mother, what became of the premature infant, and the potentially dangerous journey of the bootlegging grandfather. I hope that Ms Rocque takes this masterful beginning of a novella and considers expanding it into a collection of short stories or a novel.
