Winner Blurb: 

Evocative watercolor paintings in Coming on Home Soon illuminate a story of cross-generational love and convey the longing of a child anticipating her mother's return. Lewis' portraiture and attention to light sources, from cold winter hues to warm interior tones, reflect the loneliness of the child and the comforting strength of her grandmother.
