Poignant but I feel cheated.

I appreciate what this book is trying to accomplish, but it's not a novel and shouldn't be marketed as such. The theme is obviously touching to anyone that has a heart, but this thing looks like it was done in two weeks. Wouldn't waste my money on something that isn't what it pretends to be.

Impactful, evocative, and profoundly moving! Sea Prayer is an intense, beautifully depicted story that highlights the plight of thousands around the world who are forced to leave their homes and embark on a perilous journey to find safety and freedom for themselves and their families. The prose is lyrical and fluid. The narration is unique and powerful and told entirely through a heartfelt letter written by a father to his young son. And the illustrations are a perfect complement to the compelling, emotional plot as they transport you from the greens and reds of content country life to the blacks and browns of turmoil and war, and then on to the blues and dark greens of the unpredictable, endless raging sea. Overall I would have to say that The Sea Prayer is a short but incredibly poignant tale that reminds us that the base of humanity is kindness, compassion, and strength and that no matter nationality, locale, or religious beliefs everyone deserves to be loved, protected, and free.
