Ellie and the Harpmaker (Large Print / Library Binding)
Dan Hollis lives a happy, solitary life carving exquisite Celtic harps in his barn in the countryside of the English moors. Here he can be himself, away from social situations that he doesn�t always get right or completely understand. On the anniversary of her father�s death, Ellie Jacobs takes a walk in the woods and comes across Dan�s barn. She is enchanted by his collection. Dan gives her a harp made of cherrywood and offers her lessons. Ellie begins visiting Dan almost daily and quickly learns that he isn�t like other people. She soon realizes Dan isn�t just different; in many ways, his world is better, and he gives her a fresh perspective on her own life.
