Mountaintops and Valleys (Paperback)
Jon, Jael, and Martina have finally found Maia, or Mother Earth. In their travels, they've been told they must search for a fountain on Earth that can wash them clean in both body and soul. But no one seems to know where this fountain is, though many cities claim that their fountain is the 'true one.' This is only one of the challenges they face, as they try to make a home for themselves in this strange, new place. Will Jon and Martina be able to commit to each other? Or will forces of the world tear their marriage apart, before it's even begun?
Meanwhile, Jael's friend, Raina--from Terres--has also managed to escape the destruction of Terres-City, with the help of kindly strangers. Will she and Jael be reunited? And will Jael and Martina find the rest of their shattered family?
