The Quiltmaker's Journey
In this touching tale about the value of generosity and the spirit of community, a brave young girl leaves her village in search of the true meaning of happiness. But once outside her village, she is surprised to discover that there are less fortunate people in the world. At first she thinks that she is unable to help them, but finally she realises that she does have something to give. As she unearths the meanings of kindness and love, the young girl finds a strength and peace she never knew before. Jeff Brumbeau's beautiful and poignant fable for our times - a prequel to the well-loved, best-selling 'The Quiltmaker's Gift' - is illustrated by Gail de Marcken, whose sumptuous illustrations are as rich and detailed as the quilts made by the quiltmaker.
