The Sea Singer
There was a voice once that sang the ocean to sleep…
March is born in April, just as the sun is setting. A singing baby who cannot sleep, she sets Kolkaper on edge. The Town Council orders scientists to take her away and study her at the Cave Forest, a place for freaks like her. Acting quickly, March’s parents send her away to the distant town of Koofay. But March’s destiny is tied to that of Kolkaper. She must return to save the city from itself.
An enchanting fable about love and faith and accepting the odd ones among us.
