“Sometimes life holds special gifts when you least expect them,” says Sharon Moore Myers about her first book, Paco’s Gift – El Regalo de Paco, written in both English and Spanish.
When Sharon met an unforgettable shoeshine boy in Cusco, Peru, she never imagined the spiritual gifts she would receive from this stirring magical encounter. This heartwarming true story, for people of all ages, is about the spiritual connection between a southern American woman, paralyzed at the age of three, and a simple act of kindness shown to her by a bedraggled shoeshine boy in the Andes Mountains.
The answer to provide for the people she had met in Peru came to her in a vision during a sleepless night in her Troutville, Virginia home. Sharon’s long dilemma of changing her buying habits at Christmas and giving to those in need rekindles the childlike wonder in the true spirit of Christmas.
The illustrations are painted with watercolors and pencils Sharon brought back from Peru to insure the colors were authentic for her long-time friend and professional illustrator Dell Siler. Because of a disability, Dell paints with a brush held between his teeth.
