Imagine an entire town being there one day and gone the next! That is what happened to a small village in Mexico in the 1940s. Only a church tower survived the wrath of a newly risen volcano. The village itself was buried deep beneath the lava.
Ann Stalcup's inspiring story, The Yellow Flower, tells how one lone flower growing on a rock wall in the remains of the village church inspires a village boy with hope, strength, courage, and a determination to grow up to be the best that he can be.
