Only One Year

By Books, Personally

Only One Year is a lovely story about cultural values and family strength. Shannon’s voice in the book [is] caring, honest, and capable. The story talks very openly -but without undue drama- about the siblings’ feelings about the changes in their family: missing their brother, feeling different and sometimes embarrassed because of their unique arrangement, the challenge of readjustment when he returns home. This would of course be an excellent resource for a family making such a choice, but it is also a positive story in and of itself.
