The Scarlet Robin’s Gift

Amanda was thrilled to have her second book published in late 2014: The Scarlet’s Robin’s Gift.

Scarlet-Robin-cover-web“An endless winter has descended. Trees have been felled, and a dying forest mourns creatures it once cradled, now gone. Hope has abandoned this place. Or so it seems… One heart, overwhelmed by sorrow and inspired by love, offers a precious Gift which transforms the forest forever. The Scarlet Robin’s Gift is a story of hope rekindled. A story for all ages.”
