Yes, if you only just want to copy over an .apk, that's certainly possible and shouldn't require root (except for certain settings or user app data that may be saved to a system directory). The simplest method would be to use a file-browser that also includes an app management function. These are typically free, and simple to use (I use X-plore). With this app in particular, there is a function you can enable that will list all applications installed. Simply navigate on the opposite viewing pane to a device internal storage directory (e.g., /sdcard/documents/), then return to the app manager.
Long-press on the app you want and copy it (not move); this will copy over the .apk file (and automatically appends the version to the filename) and also avoid any permission errors. From there you can then share it to another device or external/network directory.
EDIT: You can also try searching F-Droid repository to see if the app might be there.
EDIT 2: Oh! Apologies, I wasn't careful enough with reading the OP, for some reason I thought you were referring to the free version. In that case, I'd suggest reaching out to the developer directly, as even if you do find a way to transfer it I don't think it would be wise to post such a method up, since others might abuse that knowledge. For this particular app, it's almost as if they don't want to be found! I've had some difficulty tracking it down (looked at the Play market archived page, then had a chat with Amazon and found this link as well). There's two separate e-mails for you to try, good luck! Oh, and here's a Twitter account.
