BOOK TITLE: Home Is The Starting Place

SYNOPSIS: Home Is The Starting Place follows a family of barn swallows as they struggle to build a new nesting space for their family.

Sandra uses her years of experience as a painter and print maker to capture the coastal setting and bring to life the whimsical creatures that inhabit her pages.
