The author is an Orthodox Christian and a mother with an adult son who has a disability. In this picture book, the character Catherine, who is six years old, has a friend, Elizabeth, who has a disability. This is Catherine’s journey through her Orthodox Church’s celebration of Holy Pascha: before, during, and after. The book brings out the multi-sensory and multi-cultural nature of the celebration of Pascha, the Feast of feasts, the Holy day of holy days in the Orthodox Christian Church. For those of you who are unsure of just what Pascha is, it is the Orthodox Christian name for Easter.
Christ is risen from the dead, trampling down death by death, and upon those who are in the tombs, bestowing life!
