About the Book

Maya’s Gossamer explores the beauty of virtues expressed through the stories, affirmations, and images of a philanthropist and artist. Maya is an all-knowing child fairy who connects everyone with her magical thread—her gossamer. She travels to places near and far and knits or weaves virtues into everyone’s lives. These virtues serve to strengthen the gossamer even more. It is with this strength that Maya helps you to see the truth. Maya’s Gossamer takes you on a gentle journey with the children in your life and perhaps even with the child in you.
