A Story of Becoming by Ayn Cates Sullivan is a tale of Self-Discovery, Love & Hope. The story follows a seed, which begins to sprout and become curious about who she is becoming. After overcoming a series of tribulations including being eaten by deer and struck by lightning, the sapling grows into a golden apple tree, which bears its fruits of wisdom to a community of vibrant characters. In the end, the golden apple tree becomes a symbol of love and hope for the community. The winner of 16 literary awards, A Story of Becoming is a best seller in the spiritual, self-help, relationship, as well as children’s categories. It is exquisitely illustrated by Belle Crow duCray.
“The message is that we are perfect and whole in our design,” says author Ayn Cates Sullivan. “Even though we might experience something that seems to break us, we can recover and even become a living miracle. What may at first seem like a great tragedy may in fact be an enormous blessing. We are the authors of our lives; we are the ones that choose how we view life situations. If we observe closely, wonders are happening around us all the time.”
