The Perfect Tear by Connie Lansberg
Eleanor, a timid orphan, has no clue to her real purpose, but she also has no desire to become a subservient old maid, like the miserable nuns she is forced to with. Eleanor believes Edward, whom she loves, will save her from being forced to take vows. She knows Mother Superior has no intention of letting her leave–her songs are the only thing keeping the grey mist at bay. Her devastation is complete when she discovers Edward is a prince and heir to the throne, but it is the impetus she needs to leave the safety of the abbey and go in search of her long lost father.
She doesn’t get far before discovering her true destiny. With only her instincts to protect her, she must match wits with a powerful being intent on the destruction of her world. If she does not find The Perfect Tear and release its healing power into the land, she will become an accomplice in the destruction of all she loves.

Earth was created by Tsera, the Main Creator, and has infused everything with music. Lerion is jealous of Tsera and is planning on how to become the Main Creator. He has come up with a plan to destroy Earth. But Tsera has enhanced one human with extra DNA to be able to save the whole world.
Eleanor is an orphan living with nuns. She doesn’t want to take vows and become a nun. She hopes that her love Edward will save her, but Edward is a prince and cannot help her. Eleanor learns she has a destiny to save the world. She is going on an epic journey to find the Perfect Tear, a dark crystal that could save the world.
This is an amazing story. I love the world creating and how important music is to the world. Eleanor is such a strong woman, she faced adversity of many kinds and with the help of her friends and her goat and its magic bell.
This is a great fairytale that has bits of traditional stories and a whole new twist on the world. This book is great for any age and one that I strongly recommend. I admit that I didn’t realize what kind of treasure I would find reading this book. Make sure to get your copy today.
I received The Perfect Tear from iRead Book Tours for free. This has in no way influenced my opinion of this book.
