In the charming forest of Willowwood, a young maple tree feels she has little to offer, compared with the bigger, stronger or prettier trees around her.  But thanks to her friendship with Simon the squirrel, Mabel soon learns that being special is not about size, looks or how much you are noticed by others.  One's true value is in the friends you make and the love you choose to share along the way. An entertaining way to instill empathy and character to young readers, or smaller children who love stories.

Vivid tales of bygone days, seedy tenements, shady characters, train treks across America, and the always enticing lure of the Big Top. Mesmerizing in her detail, she carefully conjures all the fear and fearlessness of the Great Depression, filtered through the eyes of an innocent young girl who runs away from home to join the circus. THE BALLET BROAD is far more than a picturesque distillation of a life well and truly lived. It is also an intimate love letter to Dutch, the quietly profound circus promoter who helped her stop running, and gather the courage and wisdom that would allow her to soar above enthralled crowds, and fly through her remaining years with grace and style.
