I just want to encourage parents to make time for those moments, realize how precious they are, and to cherish them when they happen.

April Awalt always told her son that she loved him to the moon and back – until he found out the sun was actually further away.

Awalt’s new book, To the Sun and Back, is a sweet tale of parental love. Awalt lost her son at age ten to meningitis and wrote the book as a way of healing by reflecting upon the love and bond she shared with him.

“I lost my son suddenly, and I did not know how to deal with it,” Awalt said. “In writing a happy book based upon a true story, I was able to honor the love that I have for him, even in his passing.”

Awalt found healing by remembering the happy times she shared with her son. She wrote those feelings into “To the Sun and Back” so that other parents might use the book to identify similar experiences in their own lives.

“This book does not deal with death, but rather places a focus on special moments that parents share with their children when they spend time together,” Awalt said. “I just want to encourage parents to make time for those moments, realize how precious they are, and to cherish them when they happen.”
