#Review: The Daughter Of The Sea And The Sky – David Litwack
From an early age, Helena has been taught to never question the world around her. Things are black and white, and she must live with the consequences of her every action. She’s made do with what she has, and is now dealing with the death of her father. Part of her wishes that she could bring him back. That she could continue living the life she had before. Unfortunately, she knows that’s not possible.
Helena’s life takes an unexpected turn when she comes across a nine-year-old child foundering in the seas. The child is beautiful, unlike anything she’s ever seen. The fact that the girl has crossed into uncharted territory isn’t lost on her. She lives in a faction that refuses to have anything to do with those locked in faith. The girl clearly comes from the other side, yet she knows she can’t abandon her. She’s willing to be the helping hand she needs, no matter the cost.
Determined to help Kailani at every turn, Helena soon realizes that doing so will change her life forever. Deep inside, she understands that she’s risking her life as she knows it. More so, when it comes to questioning everything around her. Her saving grace comes in the guise of her beloved Jason. He’s willing to give her the helping hand she needs to get Kailani to where she needs to be. The question is, can they overcome the multitude of adversities headed their way at every turn?
A bittersweet and heart-wrenching story, The Daughter Of The Sea And The Sky is a story about survival and the willingness to do what needs to be done despite the pain and heartache that comes with decisions made. David has created a post-apocalyptic world that is certainly believable. He vividly pens a tale that digs deep into your heart, making you care for these characters more than you care to admit.
It begs the question, what if this were to happen in real life? What if a religious war tore everything asunder? What side would you choose? What would you do? Who and what would you be?
A truly intriguing and thought-provoking story, this is one you’ll definitely enjoy reading. David is an author to keep an eye on. One whose work inspires the urge to continue reading more. I look forward to more of what he’s got coming in the future.

Is she a troubled child longing to return home, or a powerful prophet sent to unravel the fabric of the Republic? The answer will change the lives of all she meets… and perhaps their world as well.
