Everyone has a dream, and a little seed named Zerah is no exception. Zerah dreams of becoming a Great Tree growing in a field. But just as he is about to root himself, the Wind carries him to a desert. Zerah is sure his life is at its end. Little does he know this is just the beginning!
Zerah’s efforts to become a Great Tree take him all over the world. His path crosses with teachers both kind and cruel. His experiences cause him to ask some of life’s most difficult and profound questions: Why do bad things happen to good seeds? Is the Wind kind, cruel, indifferent, or non-existent? How can one maintain hope amidst darkness and pain?
When fear and doubt overwhelm Zerah, and his struggle to become a Great Tree feels impossible, does he abandon his dream? Or will the answers that he has found convince him that life is worth living and that all dreams, including those as great as his own, can indeed come true?
