Kisses on the Wind

By Lisa Moser
Illustrated by Kathryn Brown

Finding ways to keep a loved one with you helps to ease the pang of separation in this timeless, deeply touching tale.

The wagon is packed, and Mama and Papa are ready to begin the long journey to Oregon, but Lydia isn’t ready to say good-bye to Grandma. Who will braid Lydia’s hair each morning and tell her stories? Who will build boats with her made of twigs and leaves? How can you possibly say good-bye to someone you love so very much? Set in the time of the great westward expansion, this poignant story speaks to every reader who has ever been parted from someone he or she holds dear. It tells of a love that is big enough to span impossible distances — yet small enough to be carried inside our hearts.

  • A lovely, tender story about saying goodbye, and remembering those you love
  • Inspired by the author's relationship with her own grandmother
  • A gentle introduction to western migration and the Oregon Trail
