The Daughter of the Sea and the Sky by David Litwack

The daughter of the Sea and the Sky by David Litwack is a stunningly constructed story of a young girl who is deeply troubled but goes out of her way to help others. Tender yet tense, it is a story that explores the issue of faith and reason, and the wisdom and discernment to choose between right and wrong. David Litwack's exquisitely crafted story is thoughtful, passionate and simply delightful.

Kailani is a young girl who is only nine years old. She is fleeing the Blessed Lands across the forbidden ocean on a tiny boat when it crashes against a rock and starts to sink. She is saved in the nick of time by Helena and Jason, children of the Republic. When the two learned that Kailani is "the Daughter of the Sea and the Sky" they are resolute in their determination to protect her and make it possible for her to get back home. They embarked on journey that will change not only the course of their destinies but also that of the Blessed Lands and the Republic.

David Litwack's sweeping novel The Daughter of the Sea and the Sky is a powerful story that follows the journey of a mysterious but charming little girl whose mere presence seems to have changed the lives of those people around her. In more ways than they bargained for, even troubled souls like Helena and Jason have seen major transformation in their lives. Superbly imagined with a tense plot which makes it difficult to put down, David Litwack has another bestseller to his name.

The urge to write first struck when working on a newsletter at a youth encampment in the woods of northern Maine. It may have been the night when lightning flashed at sunset followed by northern lights rippling after dark. Or maybe it was the newsletter's editor, a girl with eyes the color of the ocean. But he was inspired to write about the blurry line between reality and the fantastic.

Using two fingers and lots of white-out, he religiously typed five pages a day throughout college and well into his twenties. Then life intervened. He paused to raise two sons and pursue a career, in the process becoming a well-known entrepreneur in the software industry, founding several successful companies. When he found time again to daydream, the urge to write returned. His novels include: There Comes a ProphetAlong the Watchtower, and the newly released The Daughter of the Sea and the Sky.

David and his wife split their time between Cape Cod, Florida and anywhere else that catches their fancy. He no longer limits himself to five pages a day and is thankful every keystroke for the invention of the word processor.
