The Akron Beacon Journal recommends Farfalla and I Came From the Water for Christmas.

December, 2012


Farfalla is a simple story with profound significance. It begins as a fable on friendship, but becomes a story of expectation, loss and hope. It will speak especially to families who have experienced pregnancy loss, and the hope it provides is both comforting and uplifting. I wish Farfalla had been a resource when my own family experienced a stillbirth and a miscarriage.
