Lola Rose by Jacqueline Wilson. When life with Jayni's violent-tempered father becomes too frightening to cope with, Jayni, her mum and her little brother Kenny are forced to escape in the middle of the night.
"Although she could no longer see his face She could FEEL his LOVE LIFT her and carry her along as she walked & SHE KNEW that she was not really alone...". This is the last paragraph of something I wrote in the first year after Brad died. I've been wanting to put it on a painting for a long time. I thought it would be perfect for my widow sisters . #awp #americanwidowproject #widowsisters #youarebrave #artheals
I have a whole long paragraph I could write to this but I'll keep it short. I love how Snow looks at Emma for the first time as her daughter, and looks at what she's done for herself to get her this far, and is proud. For once, Emma loses that tough woman image, and just becomes the little girl who's always yearned for her parents.
