Overview

The Heart.
The God of Love seeks a bride who is pure in heart and full of life—full of soul. Instead of a woman, he finds a child with laughter in her heart. Waiting for her to grow up, he befriends her, pretending to be nothing more than a blue-eyed boy with wild, tangled hair.

The Soul.
Left on the temple doorstep, a young girl turns the lives of the priestesses upside down . . . until one summer day before her eighteenth birthday, a traveling oracle tells her she is to marry a stranger in a foreign land.

The Nightmare.
An ancient demon—half-man, half-snake—wants to destroy anything the gods love. When she was a child, he haunted her dreams, but now he stalks her across the countryside. If he catches her, he’ll devour her.

Meet the Author

Throughout her childhood, Rita J Webb travelled around the country with a book always in hand. Rita finally settled in Ohio where she attended college to study Computer Science and then began a career as a Software Test Analyst, a beautiful title for an empty position.

Rita's love for books and great stories pushed her to start writing when impending layoffs forced her to reconsider her dreams and goals. Having tested software for ten years, she wanted to create something more meaningful than a test manual, something that would move hearts.

With her husband TJ, Rita home-schools her three girls, who keep her busy with art, science projects, books to read, and walks about the park.

    Daughter of the Goddess by Rita Webb is a sweet and heartfelt sh

    Daughter of the Goddess by Rita Webb is a sweet and heartfelt short story that I fell in love with. I love fantasy books and the author was kind enough to give me a copy of this book. Patches/Peaches has a hard time at the beginning with being mistreated by her mother and my heart just went out to her. When she's taken to the Goddess by her mother as a slave she finds out that things can be turned around for the better. She finds love in her new home. When she comes of age she is to journey to the foreign land and join her soon to be husband. Unfortunately, she is thwarted by the demon Naga who wants to destroy anything and everything the Goddess favors. Will she make it out unscathed, or will she be captured by the horrible demon?
    The story is well written and flows nicely over the pages. I love the characters and I am hoping that in the future there might be more on Peaches. I love short stories, but of course with short stories you always want more. I would recommend this to my family and friends and I look forward to more works by author Rita Webb.
