Publisher's Summary

Where do dreams come from? What stealthy nighttime messengers are the guardians of our most deeply hidden hopes and our half-forgotten fears?

Drawing on her rich imagination, two-time Newbery winner Lois Lowry confronts these questions and explores the conflicts between the gentle bits and pieces of the past that come to life in dream, and the darker horrors that find their form in nightmare. In a haunting story that tiptoes between reality and imagination, two people, a lonely, sensitive woman and a damaged, angry boy, face their own histories and discover what they can be to one another, renewed by the strength that comes from a tiny, caring creature they will never see.

    If you could sum up Gossamer in three words, what would they be?

    I could not lay it down.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Gossamer?

    The 1st page to the last, the book holds the reader's attention. The listener is captured by their own imagination. I cannot pick a favorite moment with out giving the best away.


    Have you listened to any of Anne Twomey’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The narrator, Anne Twomey, was really very creative with her voice. I had not heard her before. She is quite good.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me smile inside myself. I was delighted with the book.


    Any additional comments?

    I have read other books by Lois Lowery. I enjoyed each one and would reread each one.
