`At once touching and exuding charm, this 140-page novella still manages to pack a punch. It's a study of what can grow from trust and caring despite grief and misfortune, that no matter what stage of life a person is at, rebirth can be unexpected and come in many forms ... uplifting and satisfying.' -Scott Whitmont, Books+Publishing
