Books take you on a journey....
Welcome to my author website. I'm Sherry Weaver Smith, and I hope that my books will guide you on a reading pilgrimage. "Pilgrimage" is just like the word, pilgrim, someone who goes on a meaningful trip. In The Wolf and the Shield: An Adventure with Saint Patrick, a boy in 5th-century Ireland tries to care for an orphaned wolf pup while searching for a shield that's strong enough to protect everything-- and everyone-- he loves. In Search for the Hidden Garden: A Discovery with Saint Therese, a girl in 18th-century France finds and tries to save a garden while learning that doing small, good things can create a treasure of God's love in the world.
In my first two books, saints are the guides for adventures...
On a moonlit night, Saint Patrick asks a young boy to find what his heart really wants. He begins a new journey of friendship and faith. Read The Wolf and the Shield: An Adventure with Saint Patrick to start a journey of your own.
"I know my class will love [Search for the Hidden Garden] as much as I did. Great writing!"

"...a delightful analogy or parable for the spirituality of St. Therese"
