Sarah loves the willow tree behind her house. But one day, two men come and paint a white cross on the willow's trunk, and the next day when Sarah comes home from school she finds that her beloved tree has been cut down. Sarah is heartbroken, and she worries about the little tree spirit that she met in a dream. Where will it live now? Sarah's father has an idea. It will not bring back Sarah's willow, but it holds out hope for the future. Maja Dusikova's beautiful paintings illustrate this simple story of loss and renewal.
