When the author learns of the death of her brother overseas, she embarks on a journey to bring him home. Through memories and dreams of all they shared together, she finds comfort and strength. The lyrical art and story leave readers with a universal message of hope and love.

Si'Yam Lee Maracle, award-winning author
“Lisa Boivin's art and words sings to me of wonder, love, movement, spirit and heart. Impossibly tender and beautiful. I find myself getting lost in its color, text and beauty. You will love this book.”
Richard Van Camp, author of Three Feathers and A Blanket of Butterflies
“Lisa Boivin has given us a comfort for anyone grieving. I Will See You Again is woven with such thoughtfulness and sincerity that I am moved to remember that with grief, there can be honouring. With sorrow, there can be celebration for a life so cherished. This book is all love, and it's a reminder that we will see those we love and miss once again and, until then, we can proudly carry their hopes, dreams and stories along with our own.”
Publishers Weekly
“Boivin, a member of Canada's Deninu Kue First Nation, offers a fresh understanding of death and grief, which she portrays not as a breach in the natural order of things, but as an integral part of them.”
