When the paths of a runaway teenage boy, an old hobo and a rich girl intersect in an abandoned train yard, each carries their own personal baggage. Over early mornings, long walks and cheap coffee they discover, no matter how big or small, it’s the simple gifts in life that really make a difference.
A life-affirming look at humanity, generosity and love.
‘The king of poetry for children is Steven Herrick. Herrick’s poems … are so well balanced. On the one hand there’s humour and light-heartedness; on the other there’s depth and thoughtful care.’ The Sydney Morning Herald
‘The Simple Gift was simply that, absolutely brilliant. It was incredibly emotional, powerful and passionate. I’m an instant fan of Steven Herrick, and The Simple Gift has left me lost for words.’ Diva Booknerd
