Author Virginia (Ginny) McGowan launched her first children’s book, A Girl, Her Mother, and The Forest: A Love Story, in November.

In this melodic eco-fable, a girl and her mother live in harmony with the forest and its creatures. But what happens when villagers from a nearby valley destroy their environment and come to the forest?

This story came to McGowan in a dream and explores through allegory a relationship with the natural world that is possible. The book has full-colour original illustrations by Newfoundland artist Bev Middleton on every page.

Published by Nana’s Press, the book is available from major booksellers or direct from the author.
