Happy book birthday to ALWAYS WITH YOU, written by Eric Walters and illustrated by Carloe Liu, publishing today with Nimbus Publishing!

From the publisher: “In this poignant story, we follow young Emily who has recently lost her grandfather. As she grows, she discovers a series of letters he left behind for her, offering grandfatherly advice at life’s most pivotal moments: first day of high school, graduation day, wedding, and ending with the birth of her own child.

With gentle watercolours and fold-out letters for sharing with loved ones, Always With You is a timeless story about grief, growing up, and finding that those we love never truly leave us.”

Pre-publication praise:

“Eric Walters’s 101st book could be described as Love You Forever meets The Jolly Postman. The heaviness of loss is lightened by Halifax artist Carole Liu’s brightly hued, cheerful water colour illustrations. The scenes are full of life and renewal, capturing fun times on a favourite amusement park ride, Grandpa’s perennially blooming flower garden and completing the circle with Emily’s newborn son.” —Quill and Quire
