“This is not your average book on grief and loss. Filled with hope and encouragement, Laura’s beautiful fables, poems, and letters to her son, accompanied by absolutely gorgeous full color illustrations, left me feeling encouraged and uplifted. There are so many books that are instructional in nature, or recounts of personal events, or even advice on what to do through your grief, but this is nothing like that. It’s an intriguing and uplifting book. I highly recommend it to anyone who is searching to heal after the loss of a child or loved one.”

A Roadmap for the Hero, Part 9: Reward

Doris receives adulation from fairies and bats through their laughter. This is her reward. Her honey cakes worked to bring joy and peace.
