The Last Days of Godfrey Vance

by S. Van Toon

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
On Christmas Eve, a snowman comes to life in a snowy forest, chasing a deep and mysterious calling in his heart. Along the way, he will make friends, rediscover himself, and heal his broken spirit.
Godfrey Vance is a very special kind of snowman, the kind that walks, talks, and feels. Finding himself in the midst of a mysterious forest near the North Pole, he sets out to discover who and what he is, and where he came from. Before his journey ends, he will find he is much more than he ever could have imagined, and that the only way to heal the emptiness in his heart, is to face the thing which frightens him the most—his past.
About the author
S. Van Toon writes for everyone and no one, falling somewhere between the boundaries of innocence and the weariness of age. His stories are for the adult who can still see through the eyes of a child, and the child who can sense the struggle and beauty on the long road ahead. His stories are not quick, easy to digest meals, but rather complex, emotional experiences that aspire to distill our common experiences down to a brutal and beautiful truth—life is hard, sad and beautiful—and worth the effort.
