Walker Books – Rain Before Rainbows

In the midst of rain, rainbows can be hard to see. But with courage and the help of good friends, there is always a way out of darkness.

A girl and her companion fox travel together from a place of loss and despair, through uncertain times, towards the hope of colour, light and life. Along the way, they find friends to guide and support them. Together, they build a glorious future and discover there is a way out of the darkness, into the light of the rainbow. A book with immense hope at its heart, this is a positive message for anyone who’s ever gone through a tough time.
