Stories for Healing

Lighthouse in the Storm
Writers from AWIC*

Cover design and Illustrations by Jagdish Joshi
Deadly gases that fill the night air…a killer wave that washes away all…the shadow of guns and suicide bombers…earthquakes and riots—when a child’s worst nightmares come true, turning his world upside down.

Lighthouse in the Storm is a collection of two dozen heartwarming stories on love and loss, disaster and personal grief, abuse and aggression, sensitively written by well-known children’s authors. Meet the school bully turned football hero…a twangy American accent that nobody understands…two halves that become a smiling sun…

Every story strikes a chord somewhere and radiates hope.
