Coming Soon: Sustainer's Smile by Erika Mathews



It's Day 9 of the #WriteforLife tour, and today I'm sharing more about the tour and what it entails AND all about Erika Mathews's upcoming release, Sustainer's Smile! Y'all know I ain't one to waste time (or at least I try not to be *wink*), so let's dive in!

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 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?

Sustainer's Smile is book 4 of Truth from Taerna, although it can easily be read as a standalone. (Me? I'mma read the others first...) It’s clean and family-friendly (I wouldn't be spotlighting it if it weren't...), though Erika recommended for teens and up due to dealing with the issue of abortion.
