An imaginative and haunting story about dealing with grief

It is a day when everything aches and nails are raining from the sky. Anna's mother has died. Anna and her father are making their way to the funeral. But along the way they talk -- capturing memories, asking hard questions, picturing what heaven might be like. Anna's imagination leads both of them on a journey that, by the end, might just offer a certain sort of peace.

With captivating artwork and text that is at times whimsical, at times haunting, this profound book will make a perfect companion for readers who are wrestling with their own questions about life's mysteries.

The illustrations are amazing and are what drew me to this book initially. The story is quite mysterious, intriguing...and a bit quirky. Although the story about the death of Anna's mother, it is done in a subtle and poetic manner and leaves you with a sense of peace and beauty.
