Item description for Winter's Gift by Jane Monroe Donovan...

The Christmas holiday is best forgotten on a small, desolate farm recently touched with loss, but a blizzard brings together two unlikely beings, one man and one beast, both in need of comfort and hope.

Publishers Description
Illustrated by Jane Monroe Donovan

It may be Christmastime but on a small, forlorn farm the holiday season is best forgotten, along with painful memories of loved ones lost. Mother Nature has other plans, however, and a chance snowstorm brings together two unlikely hearts, one human and one beast, yet both yearning for comfort, companionship, and that most elusive gift of all, hope. This lustrous jewel of a story, quietly told and perfectly complemented by soft, evocative paintings, reminds even the most cynical of readers that the heart indeed can recover and go on.

Jane Monroe Donovan's parents encouraged her to follow her heart and it led to her love of sketching and painting. Her affection for animals is reflected in much of her subject matter. Jane makes her home in Pinckney, Michigan, with her husband Bruce and their two sons, Ryan and Joey. Other members of their family include their two dogs, Belle and Grizzly, a Siamese cat named Maylee, and their two horses, Ameera and Cherokee Rose.

In addition to "Winter's Gift," Jane has also illustrated three other titles for Sleeping Bear Press: "My Teacher Likes to Say; My Momma Likes to Say"; and "Sunny Numbers: A Florida Counting Book."

Exquisite Christmas Eve Book  Dec 28, 2007
This book is so well done, I could not finish it without tears. The illustrations are so well done and the story timeless. I sent it to my grand-daughter to be opened Christmas Eve. She and her mother loved it. An excellent choice for a horse lover of any age.
A wonderful tale of loss and hope  Dec 15, 2007
What a heartwarming story! Beautiful illustrations, a wonderful tale of loss and hope during the season of hope. My grandsons, aged 3 and 5, loved the story, LOVED the pictures and made me read it twice again after the first reading. You don't need any more endorsement than that.
Touching story about healing  Dec 13, 2007
This is beautiful story about healing after a loss and opening your heart to love again. It is also beautifully illustrated. Appropriate for adults, not just children.
