~~~~~
Evolved Publishing presents the literary saga of a young girl plucked from the sea under mysterious circumstances, in "The Daughter of the Sea and the Sky" by David Litwack, award-winning author of There Comes a Prophet and Along the Watchtower. [DRM-Free]
[Literary, Saga, Speculative] Though written for adults, this book is suitable for readers as young as 13.
After centuries of religiously motivated war, the world has been split in two. Now the Blessed Lands are ruled by pure faith, while in the Republic, reason is the guiding light-two different realms, kept apart and at peace by a treaty and an ocean.

Children of the Republic, Helena and Jason were inseparable in their youth, until fate sent them down different paths. Grief and duty sidetracked Helena's plans, and Jason came to detest the hollowness of his ambitions.

These two damaged souls are reunited when a tiny boat from the Blessed Lands crashes onto the rocks near Helena's home after an impossible journey across the forbidden ocean. On board is a single passenger, a nine-year-old girl named Kailani, who calls herself The Daughter of the Sea and the Sky. A new and perilous purpose binds Jason and Helena together again, as they vow to protect the lost innocent from the wrath of the authorities, no matter the risk to their future and freedom.

But is the mysterious child simply a troubled little girl longing to return home? Or is she a powerful prophet sent to unravel the fabric of a godless Republic, as the outlaw leader of an illegal religious sect would have them believe? Whatever the answer, it will change them all forever... and perhaps their world as well.

Crowned, by Julia Dweck. (Still free?)

"Charming! A lovely story about following your dreams and not relying on others. Whilst the message was clear to me as an adult, it's also spelt out at the end of the story, for the benefit of children. Julia Dweck's rhyming prose is absolutely charming and the illustrations are very beautiful. There are some amusing nods to familiar fairy tales, such as the Frog Prince and Snow White, which make the story very accessible. At the end, there are some activities for children to do, such as finding the frogs and identifying the queens, so the fun doesn't end when the story does. Overall I would recommend Crowned! It is a good book to read to younger children, or for older children to read to themselves." -- Amazon reviewer

"If you think your mom is a nutjob, you ain't seen nothing yet. The best part? The writing never gets boring because each writer has their own unique tone and delivery. I can't recommend this highly enough. Super funny." -- Amazon reviewer

Emmy winners, magazine editors, comedians, TV personalities, bestselling authors and social media superstars team up to bring you a laugh-out-loud book not about being a mom, but about having a mom, grandmom or mom-figure. And while it's not OK for someone else to make yo-momma jokes about your momma, it is perfectly healthy — even downright hilarious — to find the humor in your own upbringing. In fact, these writers highly recommend it. So if you think your mom is nuts, pull up a chair. You're in good company.
