"A rare gem of a book. It's a story of two unlikely allies on a journey to find their Camelot, but it's so much more than that. It's a story of missed opportunities and new beginnings, of understanding the past and creating dreams, of aiming for the stars even when you doubt that the stars are within your reach. It's a story beautifully told, with richly drawn characters that will squeeze your heart and make you want to laugh and cry at the same time. Like dandelion seeds, J. Norm and Epie will take root in your heart and stay with you long after you've closed the last page."*New York Times bestselling author Karen White
