Tender New Book by Kierstyn King | Giveaway!


Once upon a time, there was a girl named Jane. She had lots of little brothers and sisters...


     It begins a sweet and unusual tale.
     Innocuous. Humble.
     Two pages in I'm a blubbering mess, shuffling around on my desk for a tissue. A box of them.
     I wish I'd been prepared for the emotional impact waiting me between the covers of The Balloon Lady, a new book by author Kierstyn King. But who knew that something intended for the 6-to-10-year-olds in this world would affect me this way?

Charming illustrations by Kierstyn King.
Her family was sad that she moved away and was not with them. They didn't understand why she would want to leave them and live in the Big City. They thought that Jane didn't love them anymore and were very hurt...

     So unfolds a simple, tender story of love.
     And you will cry.

  18. I find that often children's books speak more profoundly than those written for adults!

  20. Glad someone has written a story for kids in this situation. I hate the way Quiverfull, FLDS and other groups shun young adults for being, well, young adults! Questioning can also lead to STRONGER faith but those groups never seem to see it that way...........
