The Healing BasketBook - 2018
The Healing Basket, set in northern New Mexico in the 1970's, is
about an older woman, Nevaeh, and a young girl, Mary Grace,
who befriend one another. Nevaeh teaches Mary Grace how to
cope with sorrow by telling stories about mementoes she keeps
in a basket. Together, they celebrate their time together and
learn that we exist through memories left behind. Mary Grace
accepts the things she cannot change as an opportunity to build
her hope, her faith, her strength, and her understanding about
why she is on this journey. Nevaeh helps Mary Grace see the
spirit of our loved ones in special moments that are embraced
and remembered. When Nevaeh shares the essence of her life
in The Healing Basket Mary Grace learns her greatest lesson.
It's better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.
Ultimately, love never dies.
