MAITLAND, Fla., Feb. 14, 2014 — /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Dawn Anna's new book, Heaven's Flower ($11.99, paperback, 9781628712513; $22.99, hardcover, 9781628714876; $6.99, e-book, 9781628712520) parallels the tragic loss of Lauren Townsend, the author's beloved, youngest daughter who was murdered in the infamous Columbine shooting of 1999. The author's beautiful story is told within a wonderfully illustrated, color book that will pierce the hearts of readers, irrelevant of age. The author's overall message is: "Despite supreme loss, there is hope. Love never dies."
"Everyone suffers loss; everyone has a story of grief or struggle that has brought him to his knees," states the author. "It is important to remember that in the darkness one is never alone. It is in this darkness that one can find the greatest light... the love of God, the support of family and friends, and untapped strength from within. Love and strength can grow stronger with every hurdle."
Heaven's Flower is the story of Dawn Anna's daughter, Lauren Townsend. Dawn Anna shares, "I raised my four children as a single parent for fourteen years in my garden, where we celebrated life together. A hailstorm did come to tear apart our lives when on April 20, 1999, our Lauren, our 'Heaven's Flower' was felled in a storm of bullets while innocently studying in the library at Columbine High School. We were brought to our knees in grief. Our faith lifted us up. The goodness and love that continues to survive is the very essence of Lauren."
