The Fox at the Door is a fairy tale for grownups about a woman who has lost her family and who has been alone for a long time. She is resigned to the life she is living now, at the edge of the forest, and has found some contentment in her solitude…
But one night, she hears a scratch-scratch-scratching at her door. What she finds there, waiting outside, is something she forgot a long time ago - companionship. This companionship comes in the form of a magical little fox who helps her mend her grieving heart.
This tale comes with a personal essay about grief in motherhood for all those who are struggling with the loss of a child, a fur baby, or the chance at motherhood. It’s for those who have lost a child, or who find themselves childless-not-by-choice. There are many forms of a mother's grief, and it's so important to honor them all.
This Briarlore Tale also includes a recipe for Lavender Salve.

"I read this book when I was somewhat tired, and found myself in a dreamlike state, which made my reading all the more mystical. I loved how carefully and meaningfully the author selected her words (explained in the post-story notes). The story itself is magical: in turns sorrowful and sweet. It is a tale for all of womanhood. I look forward to reading more form this author."
"What a beautiful work of art! It is a beautiful blend of heart, art, and activism on behalf of women all over the world. Thank you for listening to your heart and allowing this story to flow through you."
