Description

Sixteen-year-old Sarah hasn't seen her sister Allie in nearly a decade thanks to a family feud she can hardly remember. But the world waits for no grudge; around the time of Sarah's birth, a race of aliens known as the tanta made first contact with Earth, launching humanity into a new star-faring age. Most people embrace tantic innovation, but Sarah isn't so sure. Growing up on her family's multi-generational dairy farm, she's learned nothing can replace blood and tradition. Personal crisis meets global catastrophe as Allie pays her family a surprise visit on Christmas Eve. Can they bridge the distance between them before it's too late? The Floating Cradle is a novella of 26,000 words. Featured on the @WattpadExplorer "Hidden Gems" reading list! Featured on the @StoriesUndiscovered "Go Beyond Space" reading list!
