Read the epic love story everyone's talking about.

Let them start their dreadful wars, let destruction rain down, and let plague sweep through, but I will still be here, doing my work, holding humankind together with love like this. 

Aphrodite, in Lovely War

Order Yours Today

The miracle of Christmas comes alive in this luminous celebration of unconditional love and the joy and hope and promise in every child from Printz Honor recipient Julie Berry!

Long ago, in a dusty barn, a mother took a child in her arms,

Wrapped him snug, made his bed in the hay.

He was her gift that Christmas Day.

There's no sweeter gift than a life so new.

My best gift, little one, is you.

A special, beautiful keepsake storybook to read, share, and cherish every Christmas season with the ones you love.

An unforgettable romance so Olympian in scope, human at its core, and lyrical in its prose that it must be divinely inspired. Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review


Berry’s evocative novel ... suggests that while war and its devastation cycles through history, the forces of art and love remain steady, eternal, and life-sustaining. Publishers' Weekly, Starred Review
