Lorraine

The Girl Who Sang the Storm Away

A little girl finds joy and solace in creating melodies with a pennywhistle while her Pa Paw plays along on his harmonica, but both instruments mysteriously disappear just as a thundering storm darkens the skies over their farm. Expressive portraiture and landscapes complement the rolling, rhyming verses as an emotional Lorraine reaches deep inside her heart for the courage and songs found there in this story inspired by the music and folktales of Appalachian Tennessee.
