August & the Wind is a story about a boy who loses his mother to the sky and goes on a journey to some awe-inspiring places around the world in search of her, only to realize the extraordinary power of a mother's love.
The hope of this book is to encourage young children who may have lost a parent, grandparent or loved one, and remind them that even when they feel small or lost, that person is still with them, in their memories, in their dreams and even in the wind.
