Daniel Liebowitz and Barbara Kanowick’s new book tells an enchanting tale of historical romance and newfound destinies.

For hundreds of years, storytellers have told and retold tales of love and magic that uplift dampened spirits. This time, authors Daniel Liebowitz and Barbara Kanowick find “once upon a time” timely once again as they weave a tale of choice, courage, and love in The Mold Maker’s Daughter, made available through Xlibris.

In this tale of ancient China, Persimmon, daughter of a Jewish mold-maker and a Chinese woman, becomes a famous panda painter. Living in the forest of Chengdu Province, she finds an orphaned panda bear. Although illegal, as only members of the royal family can own one, she adopts the bear and gives him a name, Bampo.

One day, Prince Ting Ling is gored by a wild boar in the forest of Chengdu. Luckily, Persimmon is able to rescue him, treating him with a secret antidote. After the prince has recovered in his palace, he sends his soldiers far and wide to find the girl who saved his life, but to no avail.

Meanwhile, the poacher Che Tu Wa finds out about the girl’s pet panda bear and alerts the authorities. Persimmon is arrested and sentenced to death. Will Prince Ting Ling find his forest girl rescuer before it’s too late? The Mold Maker’s Daughter reveals the exciting conclusion.
