The Perfect Tear by Connie Lansberg
Posted by brriske
Eleanor, a timid orphan with an extraordinary musical gift has just turned sixteen. She has no clue to her real purpose, but she refuses to become a subservient old maid, like the miserable nuns she grew up with. Eleanor knows Mother Superior has no intention of letting her leave–her songs are the only thing keeping the grey mist at bay. Her best friend Audrey begs her to run away with her but where would they go? The world outside the Abbey is barren and dangerous. Eleanor finally decides to take her chances and in the act of running away, meets her destiny.
The girls find themselves in a strange land full of unknown dangers where they are met by an ethereal creature, Tsera, who gives Eleanor a choice. Go home to Edward, the boy she loves, never to sing again and wait until her world dies or, risk everything to find The Perfect Tear, a crystal that contains the Third Vibration and the only thing that will stop the destruction of her world.
Ms. Lansberg’s characters are well developed, her descriptions will draw you into her fantasy world! The storylines are tight and will keep you turning the pages and involved in seeing what is going to happen next.
I recommend this book for everyone that needs and escape from reality – but if you are a fan of young adult fiction, are looking for positive role models for any young woman that this is definitely something that you will want to add to your reading list.
