Heart of a Philanthropist's Take
Tyler goes to live at Grandma's house. She loves him unconditionally. After an argument with his grandmother, he decides to run away.
This is not the Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn type runaway situation... At first it seems exciting. Tyler leaves with all the cash he has and takes off to an adventure. He finds a tree house to stay in. It seems like the ideal situation. Then two kids come along. They are the homesteaders of the abandoned tree house. Instead of being angry that Tyler is in their hangout, they befriend him. Tyler is happy.
Then Tyler is afraid he will be caught by the search party that is looking for him. He leaves the tree house and finds the new hideout Cody and Jenna provide him to be cozy. That is until it rains! And who keeps stealing his food? Who can Tyler trust?
There is a lot of mystery and intrigue in this 'child's book.' I found it fascinating. Of Feathers and Friends really does capture the heart of a child. It deals with the emotions children face when they are victims of a divorce.
Darlene Hoggard Davis taught children for more than 40 years. It is evident in her writing that she really grasps how children think and understands what they go through when faced with adversity. I would give Of Feathers and Friends more than five stars if it were possible!
If you know a child who is in the midst of having his/her family divided, or a child who is a friend to a child going through a divorce in their family (everyone)then pick up a copy of this book for them. Of Feathers and Friends is a safe book with no profanity or objectionable material.
I received a copy of Of Feathers and Friends in exchange for my honest review. Upon completing reviews I send my books to a library in the Philippines that was ravished by Typhoon Yolanda #Haiyan. If you would like me to review a book for you, please send me a message or visit me at Heart of a Philanthropist. Thank you and God Bless!
