Storytellers weave the threads that help us make sense of our reality. Joyce Mills is a magical spellbinder who touches young and old in ways that help us experience the joy of living. (Carl A.

Dr. Mills' book, Gentle Willow, is a beautiful sensitive, and hope-filled metaphor which emphasizes the transformational and the healing power of love. I will use it with my child patients and recommend it to their families to read together many times.

I find Dr. Mills; Gentle Willow a clear and comforting message for children and their families who have to consider and deal with a life threatening illness.
