Sustainer’s Smile Releases Next Week!! I’m SUPER excited to share about this new novel because LIFE is near and dear to my heart and it’s the heart of this book! Sustainer’s Smile is available for preorder, and this month dozens of posts are being shared about Life, this book, and another book co-releasing with this one (more on that next week *wink*).
~About the Book~
Suffering suffocates 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 and discover her future among the cradles of unwanted babies. However, the challenges ahead of her threaten to send her spiraling into hopeless depression time and again. Saving innocent lives from the crush of the destroyer and raising a generation in the ways of Adon Olam seem more impossible than ever. At the very end of herself, will the sufferings of her and her babies prove to be anything less than the catalyst for complete disaster? fuel her determination. All she wants is to make peace with her past.

Liliora shook her head. “If Adon Olam wants it, I will not listen to my fears.” Yet tears welled up even in the words, and she felt her heart failing her.
She couldn’t imagine ever wanting to smile again, but rest sounded wonderful. If only she could truly rest—from the pain, the heartbreak, the gaping emptiness in her heart.
“Lili, just remember: Adon Olam never leaves emptiness. He fills that emptiness with something greater. I can’t tell you what it will be, and I can’t tell you that it’s not going to hurt—because it will hurt—but I can tell you that the pain isn’t the final answer. It’s not the end of the story. Let Him finish the story.”
