Books That Make You Understand a Mother’s Love, and Follow a Journey of Strength and Perseverance

Christy Texeira, mother and BookFest-award-winner, has a new book, Pink Elephants, which tells the story of a family pushed to the edge as they face the reality of their daughter’s rare, life-threatening illness. The book beautifully chronicles their private moments of tenderness, as we reconcile ourselves to the fragility of childhood innocence, and the reminder that control is an illusion.
