Johnny’s journey to find home has been interrupted, and only a miracle has kept him alive to continue. But does he want to continue? Does he even want to be alive?
His life has been plunged into darkness. All hopes and dreams are gone and the only thing he is certain of is constant pain. Left with a mangled body, an unreliable mind, and a bitter spirit, he’s become someone his family barely recognizes. Johnny turns toward home, convinced if there is any light or hope, it is to be found there—but it’s a long walk back to the farm in Ohio.
Is there any light than can banish his darkness? How many times must he die before he can finally live? And if he finally does make it home—does anyone want him there?

When you’re through reading the stories in Willows by the Water, I hope you go on being a mother: Strengthened. Encouraged. Hopeful. Joyful. Somehow comforted that you’re not alone.”
