A Shine of Rainbows
But Maire’s stern husband Alec silently disapproves of Tomas’ timidity and halting speech. He can’t hide his disappointment that Tomas isn’t the kind of child he was hoping for and his reluctance to get to know the boy makes Tomas unsure of whether he really belongs.
Soon though, Tomas too falls in love with his home, befriending local children, descending into a secret bat-filled cave, and saving a stranded baby seal.
When tragedy strikes however, Tomas is faced with his greatest challenge yet. He’ll lose everything unless he can find -- and share -- the unique gifts inside of him. Risking all, Tomas embarks on a perilous journey where he will need to call on his ability to see joy and color even when in the darkest place, in order to triumph and come home.
A Shine Of Rainbows is a story about the transformational power of love, about finding acceptance, discovering ourselves, and realizing that rainbows are all around us- and within us too.
