About the Author

The Daffodils Still Grow was inspired by diary entries of the author/illustrator, Sherri Elizabeth Tidwell, after the death of her mother when she was 14. “My mother committed suicide when I was 14, and after nearly a year of crying and hurting, I was surprised -- almost shocked -- to see the daffodils she planted right before her death still bloom again. It was a big wake-up call to me that, even though she was gone, I could still carry on without her FOR her. Somehow, our loved ones still find a way of communicating with us when we need it the most." Sherri Elizabeth now attends Seton Hill University’s MFA program in Writing Popular Fiction. She has a BA in both communications and studio arts from Austin Peay State University. She hopes that every parent will know how irreplaceable and loved they are to their children and that every child who has lost a parent will know they are not alone. Remember, the daffodils still grow!

My Review
The author has written of her own experience of loosing her mother at a young age. Her hope that this book will show other girls that they are not alone in their grief.
She shares how she feel as different things happen after her mother passes, like when her father gets rid of her mother’s things.
This is not a book for every child, but there are certain young girls who would benefit from having read this. Someone else that has experienced exactly what they are feeling.
I received this book from the author for my personal use, I was not required to give a positive review.
