About the Author

Rachel Noble enjoys writing for children, particularly stories that sensitively empower them to navigate big feelings. Rachel loves rainbows, the beach and of course, feathers. She is lucky to get all of this in Queensland Australia, where she lives. She was inspired to write Finn’s Feather following the loss of her son Hamish in 2012. After Rachel got the idea for this story, she found a feather on her doorstep. Rachel has five beautiful children (including her beloved Hamish), and a patient husband. Rachel worked as a journalist, radio producer and voice-over artist before she became an author.

Zoey Abbott is a grown-up, but she still has more questions than answers. She also feels like she knew something important when she was a kid, something that she has forgotten. So Zoey time travels in her mind, digging and scraping and scooping up old sticks and bones. She sometimes puts these in her stories.

This is such a tender, moving book. I put this book up there with the epic CRY, MY HEART BUT NEVER BREAK. While CRY is about accepting loss and grief, FINN'S FEATHER is about moving on and letting the memory of our loved one enrich our life. Finn's simple and ardent belief that his brother, Hamish, has sent this feather from heaven floods the book with hope and joy, in spite of the sad undertones of the loss that Finn and his mother are dealing with. This is also a book about friendship and helping others, and while it is a perfect book for those dealing with grief, I believe it is an important book for all children to read so that they can understand grief--for when either they experience it or someone nears to them does. FINN'S FEATHER is a true treasure, and home and school libraries would be enriched by it.

This tender story relates how a child who has lost a sibling finds a way to keep his brother in his life despite the difficulty the adults around him are experiencing. An excellent book for any child dealing with grief and the loss of a loved one.
