About the Book:

Molly doesn't fit in with her peers for a number of reasons, one of which is her old-fashioned, slow-moving sled. She hates the thing, and the ridicule it brings down on her, until one day when it descends into a part of the woods she has not explored before. A boy has seen, and is waiting for her, and gives her just the sort of encouragement she needs: the kind of encouragement that will get her through not only that afternoon, but through the rest of her life.

About the Author:

Author CP Warner is also a musician, fiber artist (knitting, dyeing, and spinning), and a married mother of two daughters.

Author's Note:

This is a short story which will appear in a collection when I have enough stories for a whole book. It was inspired by a song, "Flexible Flyer," which was written by Grant Hart, formerly of the band Hüsker Dü. The song has become a touchstone to me in the past year, and has taught me some valuable life lessons. I found I wanted to pay tribute in some way, and this is what came bubbling to the surface one winter afternoon last February. It was hard to choose a specific genre, but contemporary romance seemed closest. Thanks in advance for reading and commenting.
