An uplifting new book by a Tallahassee couple, “The Secret in the Clouds,” aims to help young children deal with grief and loss associated with family members affected by the COVID-19 virus.

The story combines positive mental health principles, a little bit of science, and some fictional/fantasy as the path to actively assist families work through the ongoing threat of the pandemic. 

The central character is Sunny Albright, an imaginative 7-year-old girl, whose entire routine and life are dramatically disrupted by the impact of the pandemic on her family and community.  

As Sunny confronts the pain associated with losing a loved one, she also loses her energy and imagination. She learns how to process her grief with the help of her family and a mental health professional – and some fictional heavenly cloud characters appear in her sleep to also help restore her to a healthier place.
