A gorgeous wordless picture book about the power of love to overcome fear by the #1 New York Times bestselling artist of the She Persisted series

In this stunning picture book, Lola heads out into the world with a dream in her heart and the love of her family and friends by her side. But when her dream gets lost, her heart is wounded. Lola cannot nurse it back to health on her own, but love steps in—and is patient and kind and protects Lola and her heart until they can heal and head off again to find new dreams. Beyond her fears there is abundance and beauty.

Award-winning and bestselling illustrator Alexandra Boiger creates a breathtakingly beautiful allegory that can be enjoyed over and over to reassure readers that no matter what obstacles they encounter, and no matter how broken they or their hearts may be, love will always be there to see them through and help them overcome their fears.
