What does Springtime mean to you?
Gardens and flowers bring the return of color. No matter how crisp and white a snowfall looks, the first of the bursting yellow daffodils are like a voice announcing the return of good weather and outdoors activities.
Oh, it might mean prom dates to some… it might mean applying for a summer job or endlessly mowing a lawn that grows larger every year (how does that happen?)
Those aren’t the reasons you look ahead with excitement. (OK, maybe the prom…) It’s the return of Sunshine and warm warm days.
And that means beach days aren’t far off.
Close your eyes and remember the gritty feel of the sand that insists on creeping onto your towel, and of all the voices laughing and chatting all around. Bet we all have a favorite beach, whether it’s the local swimming hole, a lake, or an ocean-side endless stretch of snow-white sands.
If your favorite spot threatened to disappear, what would you do?
In Spinning the Baiji, teenage Lin’s dream is to save the Yangtze River, about to be tamed by the new dam. And, its not just for herself, but for the dolphins that have lived along the shore of her village…for the grandmas that have never lived anywhere else… for the Lotus flowers that claim this valley as home.
What price will she pay to safeguard the best of her world? Download your eBook copy of Spinning the Baiji, by Nancy Lindley-Gauthier, to find out.
