LoveReading View on The Lady Who Came From The Sun

This sweet, from-the-heart picture book pamphlet is a moving homage to a lady called Diane, the beloved grandmother of its young illustrator, Elsie.

Elsie was only five when her Nanny passed away. Having been very close, the loss was deeply felt. Nanny was “someone who painted your life yellow and asked for nothing in return.” She was “a love beam sent directly from the sun,”, “a very special lady, whose kindness changed the world”. As a result, when it was time for her to leave, “the world seemed slightly more dreary, a little less hopeful.” But, as this poignantly personal book reminds readers, “she had never really left.” That is to say, once a person has touched our lives so profoundly, they always remain with us.

Transforming the darkness of loss into a radiant homage, The Lady Who Came From the Sun will strike a chord with those who’ve lost someone special, and could inspire valuable conversations with children about death and how to remember those we love. Elsie’s illustrations are an absolute joy.
