Released by Findaway Audioworks and Orange Sky Audio, this is a compelling contemporary novel exploring a young woman’s crisis of faith.
On an ordinary day in June of 1964, in a small town in the Altiplano of Peru, Sister Mary Katherine (formerly known as Kate), a young American nun recently arrived in this very foreign place, walks away from her convent with no money and no destination.
Desperate and afraid of her feelings for an Irish priest with whom she has been working, she spends eight days on the run, encountering a variety of characters along the way: a cynical Englishman who helps her out, a suspicious Peruvian police officer who takes her in for questioning, and two American Peace Corps workers who befriend her.
As Kate traverses this dangerous physical journey through Peru, she also embarks upon an interior journey of self-discovery – one that leads her somewhere she never could have expected.
Elizabeth is excited to announce the release of the first book in a new fantasy series by bestselling author K.A. Tucker: A Fate of Wrath and Flame, produced by Tantor Audio, now available at Libro.fm, Audible, and elsewhere.
Gifted thief Romeria has flourished from her days as a street kid pilfering wallets to survive. Now she thrives, stealing jewels from the rich under the involuntary employ of New York City’s most notorious crime boss. But when an enigmatic woman secures her services at swordpoint, Romeria is plunged into a startling realm of opposing thrones, warring elven, and elemental magic she cannot begin to fathom.
Her quest is straightforward: Steal a stone from Islor’s sacred garden without anyone discovering her true identity, which would earn her certain death. But the identity she has inexplicably assumed is that of the captured Ybarisan princess—an enemy to Islor after she poisoned their beloved king and queen on the day she was to marry the prince.
Her betrothed, the newly crowned King Zander, detests her with every grain of his handsome being. Zander gives her a choice: life in a cell, or an acquittal of all charges in exchange for her help in exposing the growing plot against him.
Romeria sees no other option and embraces the tricky role of smitten queen-to-be until she can escape. As she digs deeper, she discovers monstrous truths that could spell ruin for all.
