Truth from Taerna, #4: Sustainer’s Smile

 Fantasy / 181 views / Popular


Suffering strangles her soul. How can she ever smile again?

A helpless newborn . . . that’s exactly how twenty-four-year-old Liliora Ellith feels in her efforts to speak up on behalf of the youngest members of Taerna’s pleasure-driven society. Her tender heart for the defenseless and deep aversion to conflict throw Liliora’s soul into turmoil when tragedy opens her eyes to the quiet yet heartrending war on Taerna’s babies—both born and unborn. Adon Olam’s word coupled with a secret in her own past fuel her determination, but the challenges ahead of her threaten to send her spiraling into hopeless depression. At the very end of herself, can her own utter insufficiency be anything less than the catalyst for complete disaster?

A clean, pro-life family-friendly kingdom adventure fiction novel. This is Book 4 of Truth from Taerna but can easily be read as a standalone. No magic or romance. No violence other than abortions, which happen off-page. Recommended for teens and up due to dealing with abortion.
