After 13-year-old Charlie Hall’s mother dies and his father retreats into the silence of grief, Charlie finds himself drifting lost and alone through the brutal halls of junior high school.

But Charlie Hall is not entirely friendless.  In the woods behind his house, Charlie is saved from a mountain lion by a grizzly bear, thought to be extinct in northern Idaho. 

And this very unusual bear will change Charlie’s life forever.

Deeply moving, and interwoven with hope and joy, Emory’s Gift is not only heartwarming and charming coming of age story, but also a page-turning insightful look at how faith, trust, and unconditional love can heal a broken family and bridge the gaps that divide us.

At the publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management software (DRM) applied.

The kid takes the bear up to their barn where Emory, unobserved, writes on the wall that he’s a Civil War soldier with a message.

First and foremost, the reader wants the story of Emory to be true (true, that is, in the confines of a fiction book), that the grizzly bear was a reincarnated Civil War soldier who returned with a message for us all.
