A young girl named Rave kept her secrets hidden deep within a remote area of Washington State. She must never speak about her mother’s miraculous powers to outsiders, or about her father who has a mysterious presence that scares her. Raven spends her days trying to learn how to use her rare talents—and more importantly, how to hide them from others. Each lesson brings a warning of what dangers may lie outside her isolated haven. Despite her mother’s warnings, Raven finds herself longing to experience something more.
“A powerful journey of forgiveness and self-healing awaits you in The Light Through the Leaves, an epic novel by best-selling author of Where the Forest Meets the Stars, that explores the power of forgiveness and self-discovery.”
