Has you ever sat beside a pond or a lake and imaged it was an ocean? Your boat was as big as a ship and you sailed to the other end of the world, visiting people in foreign lands, viewing unusual birds and animals from your deck...You ruled your world as the ocean swept you along. Land was not land…it had the ability of shifting and swaying…it was green and then it's an animal...

The Ocean at the End of the Lane is an English Fable not African, empowering women from beginning of time. It embraces maternal love in its deepest form…forgiveness and respectfulness is the very nucleus of this fable.

Lettie Hempstock is the eleven year old girl who befriends a seven year old boy and teaches him about trustfulness, forgiveness, and respectfulness for all creatures no matter how scary.

This is a small book with a big message, easily read in one setting…
