Dreaming the Bear, Paperback

Dreaming the Bear Paperback



"When I get up, there's nobody home. Even Mum has gone out. The note says, 'I have to check my emails. I'll snowmobile to the meltline and be back soon. XX Mummy'. And I think, 'Good. I can feed my bear...'" Darcy's life was never exactly simple, but it was about to become a lot more complicated.

Recovering from a distressing illness in her parents' cabin surrounded by looming pine trees, Darcy spends most of her days alone, warming herself by the log fire.

That is, until she ventures into the woods hours before a heavy snowstorm, and finds herself face-to-face with a grizzly bear.

Their encounter takes a surprising turn when it flourishes into a warm and caring companionship.

Set against the beautiful backdrop of the snowy Yellowstone National Park in Montana, Mimi Thebo's poetic tale inspires compassion and friendship, sensitively focusing on how the seemingly impossible can become the achievable.
