A young woman is caught in the web of war being woven between heaven and hell. Impregnated with those who would be the only chance for mankind, she is being tracked by those who would help Satan and must keep herself safe until the child is born. Yet in a cruel twist of fate, she comes to a crossroads that could either destroy everything she knows or make her relive the pain of a mother two thousand years before her. (tentative summary)

 Reading "Love of a Mother" is suggested before this.

Fly To Dawn by Lurid [Young Teen]
starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 4]

“So, this is life. This is what it is to live,” she had smiled.

What is life? Is it merely a state in time to which we interact with others, in which we're influenced by others -- or is it meaningless? is every step or action we take nothing in the great scheme of things?

Time patters on, and waits for no one. As humans, we must push to defy the logical boundaries of death.

 If we wish to live life.

Liliana is only ten years old, and she's preparing to go into a "posh grammar school". This is her story of her parents divorce, and the marriage, or rather, lie, that preceeded it.

It accounts the innocent view of a child watching the break-up of a false relationship through un-blemished eyes, on a rough council estate, where families are deemed "hopeless" and "not worth the trouble".

With an alcoholic mother and unfaithful father, Liliana desperately seeks for real love in a cruel world which makes no sense.
