Editorial Reviews

Review

"Author David Litwack gracefully weaves together his message with alternating threads of the fantastic and the realistic... The reader will find wisdom and grace in this beautifully written story..." - San Francisco Review Book Review
 
"...a fully imagined, gripping read..." - Kirkus Reviews

"... an enthralling look at an alternative world... thought-provoking, beautifully written and highly entertaining." - Jack Magnus for Readers' Favorite

The characters in this story... warmed my heart, wet my eyes, and - in the case of Benjamin - made me shudder. It was,,,  a thought-provoking look at the line between faith and fantasy, fanatics and followers, and religion and reason. It's also just a really good read. -  Lisa Senftleben

"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... Superbly imagined with a tense plot which makes it difficult to put down..." - the GreatReads!

"... keeps you on the edge from one page to the next as you wait to discover the reason behind [Kailani's] sudden appearance in the land of the soulless... in the end, the truth is very awe-inspiring and most deserving." - Faridah Nassozi for Readers' Favorite

From the Author

In the wake ofcenturies of religiously motivated war, reason and spirit have beenseparatedby decree--the faithful consigned to the Blessed Lands while, across anocean,those who believe in a rational universe make the Republic their home.What happens when the ancient boundaries are transgressed?When Kailani, a nine-year-old girl from the Blessed Lands, sails acrosstheForbidden Sea and crashes upon the Republic's shore, she changes thelives ofall she meets.
The Daughter of the Seaand the Sky is a literary journey exploring the clash between reason and faith,and the power of hope and love.

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

The urge to write first struck at age sixteen when working on a newsletter at a youth encampment in the woods of northern Maine. It may have been the wild night when lightning flashed at sunset followed by the 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 -- and without prior plan -- 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.

David now lives in Seattle, Cape Cod, Florida, and anywhere else that catches hisfancy. He no longer limits himself to five pages a day and is thankful every keystroke for the invention of the word processor.
