Will & Whit

Will & Whit

Will & Whit, by Laua Lee Gulledge. Whilhelmina (Will) is a lamp maker, a lover of antiques, and scared of the dark. Whitney (Whit) is the storm that blows through and plunges a town into darkness. Beautiful drawings and a deep, relatable message will draw anyone into this story.
