THIS GIRL LAUGHS, THIS GIRL CRIES, THIS GIRL DOES NOTHING

Mar 17 – Apr 10 2022

by Finegan Kruckemeyer

Triplet sisters are left in the forest by their woodcutter father. From this fairytale beginning, three resolutions are made – one sister will walk one way, one the other, and the third will stay right where she is. Twenty years later, having circumnavigated the globe, and fought Vikings, and crossed oceans, and tamed wilds, and achieved greatness, the three meet again, as women.  What they learn on their separate journeys will change everything, and at the same time nothing, in this moving and irresistibly charming modern-day fairytale.

An adventure story for all ages! Ages 7 and up recommended.
