Between the Sun and the Rainbow by Eileen Schuh

Between the Sun and the Rainbow


Chill with a Book READERS’ Award

Nine-year-old Danielle’s parents are getting divorced and she doesn’t think things can get any worse—but they definitely don’t seem to be getting any better, either.

Her mother takes her and her older brother, Jayson, thousands of kilometers from their Toronto home to the old family homestead on the Alberta prairie. Inside and outside of the rundown shack that is now home, everything is strange and frightening.

Her mother says they will connect with nature on the farm and begin to heal but to Danielle, it seems a very painful way to heal.

Little by little, however, she learns about herself, her ancestors, and what a family is all about. With help from her new community, her pets, and those who love her, she just might begin to find the peace and happiness she needs.
