Book Summary:
The lake shivered and the reeds swayed the first time Benjamin’s eyes met Rafael’s across the water.

In his forties, Benjamin’s life is slipping into the grey when seven-year-old Rafael’s supernatural powers and uncommon wisdom awaken hope, and a lurking shadow of hidden pain.

Inspired by the boy’s innocent joy, Benjamin longs to give him what he desires most-togetherness with his father, Scott, who is consumed with finding a talisman to ward off a curse which will cause him to disappear forever unless he can learn the impossible: To fly.

When Scott’s quest leads him into wild woods, Rafael chases after him alone, hoping to stop him from disappearing, and to learn to fly together.

The race to save Rafael from violent storms and cunning wolves could cost Benjamin his sanity, his family, and his life.

A mysterious stranger who appears in their lives may offer solutions, but first Benjamin will have to trust him. Deeply moving, Strong Like Wildflowers is a powerful journey of inspiration, great loss and greater hope. A reminder of the power of love and relationship to break cycles of generational pain.
