Well, I’m semi-back from my hiatus! That was a much longer hiatus than I expected… and unfortunately I’m still going to be on a sort of break. And ugh, I still haven’t been up to answering comments, but all y’all’s sweet comments on my hiatus notice post… I just can’t… :’D Y’all are the sweetest, most understanding and supportive group I could have! *group huggles* Y’all are the reason I can’t wait to get back to blogging! I’ll explain about my blogging situation more later on in the month, for now let’s get on with the tour! 😀

Read the Snippets
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.
“And then we played Hide and Find Me in the hay. And Kethin couldn’t find me forever! I hid in the very back corner, and Kelton helped pile hay on me so I looked like a haystack. And then Kethin laid down in the hay to hide, but I saw his boots peeking out.”
“That’s not fair, because I’m so much bigger than you.” Kethin’s grin flashed. “The hay doesn’t cover me as well. And it takes a good deal more to cover me.”
“You still have hay in your hair.” Liliora motioned to Kethin, then to Tae.
Kethin ran his hand through his hair. “Are you teasing me?”
“No! There’s some by your ear.” Liliora set down her spoon, not going to risk spilling a bite while shaking with laughter.
Kethin’s fingers traveled up and down and at last landed on a miniscule fragment of straw behind his right ear. “Come now, that’s hardly hay. Not like Tae, at any rate.”
“My hair is a haystack,” Tae replied, rumpling it until it stood on end.
“A very dark-colored one,” Liliora agreed

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 fuel her determination. All she wants is to make peace with her 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?
