Product Details


Graham employs language that emphasizes lovely quiet moments and the continuous, slow passage of time, as "the seasons kept turning," and "moons passed many times overhead." The lovely, softly toned illustrations beautifully complement the text…Lovely to look at and to ponder, best suited to children of a philosophical bent.
—Kirkus Reviews

Lovely, sweeping views take in all that happens to the golden ring after it lands in a seaside meadow…Graham focuses on the passing of time and the slow action of the natural world; in contrast to the sweet, pudgy human figures, softly tinted landscapes are airy and graceful. And the ring’s survival through space and time is a powerful symbol for the enduring force of love.
—Publishers Weekly

Graham’s characteristic ink, watercolor, and pastel illustrations focus mostly on the natural world in and around the sea. Blues and greens predominate, with the ring (inscribed with the words "Love never dies") spotlighted in glowing yellow, and its journey revealed through a mix of paneled scenes and double-page vistas. An elegantly lyric and thoughtful paean to the endurance of love.
