Rain Before Rainbows
A free eBook to raise awareness for Save the Children’s ‘Save with Stories’ campaign which is helping children most affected by the coronavirus pandemic. The rainbow has become an incredible symbol of hope and optimism during this time and we hope that this uplifting story can be a source of comfort and light to children and families, and that it inspires anyone who is able to do so, to donate to the Save with Stories campaign.
Life is never pure sunshine, but when I wrote this book I really didn’t envisage the clouds that would darken our skies the world over. We have all had to embark on a journey we didn’t expect, facing difficulty and danger, often separated from friends and loved ones. We may feel alone. But we are not.
There may be rain.
But there are rainbows.
It has been wonderful to see rainbows everywhere, symbolizing hope in these troubled times. I hope that this book and the beauty of David’s illustrations can, in some small way, help us to acknowledge loss and sadness, while giving voice to our strength and resilience. I hope it will remind us that there are friends to help us and new beginnings to be found. I hope it will shine light in dark places and bring hope out of heartbreak – and that the promise of rainbows will breathe through every page of this book, keeping us looking to the future with courage, light and hearts filled with hope.
