Zanna's Gift: A Life in Christmases , from the New York Times bestselling author of Ender's Game , Orson Scott Card
When the Pullman family lost their eldest son to an unexpected illness just before Christmas, it was devastating to all of them, but especially to four-year-old Suzanna. She shared a special bond with her big brother. A strangely gifted child, Zanna loved to draw, but Ernie was the only one who was able to see the pictures in the curious patterns she made. Sadly, he never saw the Christmas drawing she had made for him that year.
Suzanna grew up to be a famous artist, but to her family, that last painting she made for her big brother was her most important work.
This is the story of that gift, and how it inspired the Pullman family to keep alive the spirit of love, imagination, and hope for generations to come.
