THE RETURN OF LIGHT: A CHRISTMAS TALE

"As renowned literary critic and editor Sol Stein
 once said, the purpose of nonfiction is to impart 
information, but the purpose of fiction is to convey 
emotion. By this deceptively simple-sounding but 
all-important standard, The Return of Light succeeds 
brilliantly as a modern Christmas fable. . . . 
The Return of Light is destined to be a well-loved classic
 in many public and home libraries and would be
 a good selection for those readers seeking to teach
 their children the true meaning of Christmas."
-ForeWord Magazine

AVIELLE OF RHIA

"Evocative scenes of Avielle's weaving symbolize
 her inner journey, and readers will empathize with 
the girl as she struggles to accept her Dredonian 
heritage, her magic, and her duty, while weathering
 prejudice and her own unconscious hatred. . .
 the pattern Calhoun weaves is rich and complex."
-Booklist.
