Review

I found this book to be very touching. It showed how death affected a little girl and though she went through a very dark period that she couldn’t understand, and through the power of God, came out the other side where she could be happy again. Both illustrations and the prose are well-done, capturing the emotions that flood the book.

I would highly recommend this book for both parents and children who suffered the loss of a loved one. It brings comfort and hope to both parent and child.
