After meeting a magical old woman in a clearing in the woods and trading her daisy chain for the granting of a wish, a little girl grows into a young woman and the clearing begins to fill with the loveliest flowers, the most fragrant herbs, and the most perfect stones.
The talents of Carol Ann Duffy and papercut artist Rob Ryan combine to present the story of a girl's journey through life and the desires that shape it. With a kind of magic that is timeless, The Gift speaks to everyone who wonders about the mysteries that lie at the heart of the human experience.
