Apples of Paradise
By: David Gardner
About the Book
War. The most horrible word in the twenty-first century, bringing devastation, brutality, and murder. With hostile sides destroying everything in their path, oblivious to one another’s truths, is it possible to wake compassion and draw upon the constant feelings of love and friendship to build a bridge of peace?
Apples of Paradise is a story about an unusual, forbidden love, self-discovery, and outdated traditions, set before the backdrop of a war that splits everything.
