Laura Formentini has written a lovely book of life lessons through stories, poems, and vignettes of insight and wisdom and revelation. The ultimate result is reinventing life through conscious awareness of life’s daily miracles of healing transformation and liberation. I highly recommend it.
Kirkus, Starred Review:
“The author’s power to move readers is exemplified by the closing of “Camel and Spider” in which Camel says, “You’re in the moon. You’re in every grain of sand. I can’t see anything without seeing you, Spider.” Cooper’s full-color illustrations add to the book’s unusual melding of genres. The end result is a tenderly philosophical study that offers hope and solace.”
Twentyone Olive Trees : A Mother’s Walk through the Grief of Suicide to Hope and Healing is a book of beautiful poems, fables, and illustrations, throughout the transformation of one mother from shock and grief to love and acceptance, is a good fit for anyone who has lost a child to suicide and is yearning to heal from this traumatic loss. It can also be a comforting resource for anyone who has lost a family member or a friend, including older teenagers. Laura Formentini’s goal is to provide comfort and love, in a time when it is most needed.
The stunning illustrations and charming fables provide a book that is unique amongst grief and loss books. It brings a childlike and intimate look at coping with loss and embracing acceptance, meant to intrigue, inspire, give hope, and offer ways for the readers to transform their own personal loss and pain into something beautiful.
