A lyrical picture book about finding your way and not giving up.
Against the Wind is a beautifully illustrated metaphor for our lives. Paired with simple, yet equally thoughtful words, it invites readers along a visually soothing journey through the ever-shifting path. Sometimes it’s easy, sometimes it’s hard, but, eventually, we all find our own way. A monochromatic palette of sepia hues gives a sense of seriousness to the story, while the splashes of red and yellow provide readers with a feeling of hope. The minimal text is hand-written and masterfully blended into the illustrations, becoming an integral part of the story.
