Synopsis

Summary

This picture book tells a true pay-it-forward story that bridges two continents, 175 years, and two events in history: the 1845 Irish Potato Famine and the COVID-19 pandemic. In each of these tragic events, kindness and empathy connected Ireland, the Choctaw Nation, the Navajo Nation, and the Hopi Tribe, as the people of each found kindred spirits in one another despite their differences.
