Heart of the Willow
by Brenda Lynne Sorensen

During the longest winter she’s ever known, a lonely Willow begins to weep. Her heart is filled with frost, and she can’t remember what it feels like to be loved. She cries out to the Wise Wind, who comforts her, reminding her: You are never alone. Soon, the Willow hears the call of a very special bird on the breeze. Perhaps, with the help of the Wise Wind and the magical Song of the Whip-poor-will, the Willow's heart will heal and she will never be lonely again. Written with striking lyrical beauty and featuring stunning original illustrations, Heart of the Willow is a modern folktale sure to delight adults and children alike with its timeless message of love and hope.
