About the Book
The Fox at the Door is a fairy tale for grownups about a woman who has lost her family and who has been alone for a long time. She is resigned to the life she is living now, at the edge of the forest, and has found some contentment in her solitude, but one night, she hears a scratch-scratch-scratching at her door. What she finds there, waiting outside, is something she forgot a long time ago - companionship. This companionship comes in the form of a magical little fox who helps her mend her grieving heart.
This tale comes with a personal essay about grief in motherhood for all those who are struggling with the loss of a child, a fur baby, the chance at motherhood. Those who have lost a child, or who find themselves childless-not-by-choice. There are many forms of a mother's grief, and it's so important to honor them all.
This Briarlore Tale also includes a recipe for Lavender Salve.
