Anax (The Order Series #1) par Keren Ouliel (Niv Books)

Description : Walking a fine line between conspiracy theories and the unimaginable truth, a young environmental journalist, Naya Tellus, investigates unexplained natural disasters.
Stepping onto a path of secret societies, mythical creatures and fate, she discovers the truth about herself and her place in the world she would never have believed existed.

What is the connection between Naya and the higher force that sets everything in motion? Who can she trust? And what
if the reality is more unbelievable than any fiction?

Anax, the first book in The Order series, is your key to mystery, fantasy and myth. Will you accept your destiny?
“Don’t you think that if something like that was true, everyone would have known it by now?”

Joshua taps his fingers against the mug, seemingly somewhat impatient yet curious.
“Well, your world leaders do not care about anything that does not involve money.”

Naya scoffs. “My world leaders? Need I remind you that we live on the same planet?”

The man straightens himself, takes a twenty pound note out of his blazer pocket and stands up, handing it to her rather than putting it on the table. Naya doesn’t miss the fact that he hadn’t touched his food or drank his tea.

“We may live on the same planet, but that does not mean we live in the same world. My world, Miss Tellus, has its own rules.”

Thinkers And Doubters par Michal Arbel (Niv Books)

Description : Hello.
It is lovely seeing you here.
This place is unknown.
It has no name,
It has no description,
You can call it “the truth”-
If you are a person of definitions.
This place has nothing in it,
Yet it is everything.
It is built upon my heart,
And it might contain a piece of yours.
Welcome home.

Following the Call: Living the Sermon on the Mount Together par Charles E. Moore (Plough Publishing House)

Description : Fifty-two readings to spark weekly group discussion on putting Jesus’ most central teachings into practice.

Jesus’ most famous teaching, the Sermon on the Mount possesses an irresistible quality. Who hasn’t felt stirred and unsettled after reading these words, which get to the root of the human condition?

This follow-up to the acclaimed collection Called to Community: The Life Jesus Wants for His People taps an even broader array of sources, bringing together teachers and prophetic voices from every era and a range of traditions to unlock the repercussions of these essential words.

More than a commentary or devotional, however, this book is designed to be read together with others, to engage and inspire communities of faith to discuss what it might look like to put these radical teachings into practice today. For, as intriguing as Jesus’ words are, they are also inflammatory, a challenge to the world as it is. Yet as these readings make clear, the Sermon on the Mount is neither an impossible ideal nor or a new ideology, ethical framework, or set of rules. Rather, when Jesus calls people to himself, a new social order is born, which he calls the kingdom of God.

Jesus not only casts a vision of what this new way of righteousness, peace, and love looks like, but invites us to respond, and empowers us make it a reality.

Loud Woman: Goodbye, Inner Good Girl! par Jill Celeste (Highlander Press)

Description : Together, Loud Woman, we must leave our comfort zones of good-girl manners, perfection, and fear.

It’s time to embrace this truth: You deserve to live a fulfilled life…

Not one prescribed by society but one beautifully designed by you…

Loud Woman, look around. All across the globe, people are depressed, or poor, or unfulfilled. Our planet bears the weight of our collective selfishness. Many leaders are corrupt, and we are plagued with a mindset that there’s not enough of everything to go around.

Now look at you. You probably are not living your Loudest life. Burdened by societal expectations for women to be small and Quiet, you have been taught to put your needs last, to always show good manners, and to see other women as competition instead of allies.

That’s how Jill was too—overly accommodating, giving, polite, and selfless. But as she watched Dr. Christine Blasey Ford bravely tell her story and testify about Brett Kavanaugh’s attempted rape, Jill thought, this is what a Loud Woman looks like. Speaking up and telling the truth—and doing so without apology or explanation. Inspired by Dr. Ford’s act of honest courage, Jill realized, right then and there, that it was time for her to get Louder too.

Loud Woman is part memoir, part self-help, all manifesto, confession, and plea. It’s Jill’s love letter to you, Loud Woman, so you can be inspired by her journey and embark on your own. Inside these pages you will find a guidebook on how to live a Louder life—from how to push through your fears to trusting yourself more. It’s Jill’s hope that, after reading Loud Woman, you too will look in the mirror and proclaim, “This is what a Loud Woman looks like.”

Permission to Be Black: My Journey with Jay-Z and Jesus par A. D. Thomason (IVP)

Description : *Books sent will be advance reader copies*

Embracing your Christian identity does not make you "soft." Embracing your Black identity does not make you less Christian. Throughout American history, Black people were not given the freedom to acknowledge their suffering. A. D. Thomason believes that the Holy Spirit brings freedom and liberation as we're able to name our pain, recognize its roots in history and society, and seek healing. While many saw a confident, six-foot-five Black man, A. D. "Lumkile" Thomason lived most of his life in fear and anguish, deeply wounded by encounters with violence, abandonment, and family tragedy. Hiding behind a tough exterior, Adam earned his "Black card" but felt joyless inside. Even traveling around the globe to play professional basketball could not resolve his despair. But in the art of Jay-Z, A. D. discovered stirring honesty that gave voice to his own expressions of longing. And in the gospel of Jesus, he experienced the healing and salvation that had long evaded him. Now through what he calls "kingdom therapy," he's figuring out how to redefine the Jay-Z and Jesus that make up his blackness. A. D. uses his artistry as a poet and storyteller to share how he confessed his internalized pain and embraced the liberating joy of Christ. He writes for millennials, emerging adults, and anyone else who's ready to acknowledge the reality of racial trauma and our need to confront it. A. D.'s powerful story gives you permission to be Black, to be Christian, and to be the person God has made you to be.

Learning To Fly: Hooks, Lines and Singles on Montana Creeks par Rip Gerber (Wise Media Group)

Description : Some anglers say fish are deaf, that fish can only sense vibrations through their lateral lines, and that’s not really hearing. But fly fishermen on the Hammer creeks know better. When the sun falls and the music rises at the barn, booming the ranges and blanketing all of Gallatin valley, every living creature with or without ears hears the rock and roll.

A prized trophy fish doesn't attempt to be anything other than what it is… a fish. A great song is just like that…it starts out like any other song. But then it grows and thrives and becomes more than a song… it becomes a classic, a moment, a movement. Like a rolling stone. Like a Bessie. And when you catch that perfect melody, like catching a gorgeous rainbow, the euphoria is like no other feeling in the world.

Learning to Fly (released June 17, 1991) is a song by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. It was written by Tom Petty and his writing partner Jeff Lynne for the album Into the Great Wide Open. The entire song is based on only four simple chords, (F, C, A minor, and G). Petty explained the genesis of the song: “I was coming to grips with the view that you can be optimistic, hopeful and as good a person as you want to be, but it’s not going to make life simple for you. Nothing will. You can have all the success you want and it’s not going to make your life - really your personal life - much easier than anyone else's.”

* Includes a Spotify playlist containing all 125 songs (in order) mentioned throughout the book. For a total immersion experience, grab your phone, scan the QR code and enjoy the soundtrack!

Reluctant King par K'wan (Akashic Books)

Description : Meet the Kings, one of the most influential families in New York City. In the power circles of the movers and shakers, they are regarded as modern-day royalty. A politically connected father, a socialite mother, and three promising children: they look every bit the all-American family . . . but every family has secrets. Some darker than others.

Of all the children, Shadow is the least like the rest of the Kings. To call him soft wouldn’t be quite accurate, but he lacks the leadership qualities of his older brother, Ghost, or the ruthless tendencies of his sister Lolli. Shadow is just . . . Shadow. Instead of accepting his role in the “Monarchy” created by his father, Shadow would rather spend his days chasing women and hanging out in the hood with his best friends, Fresh and Pain. He is totally oblivious to the perils that come with his last name—until danger introduces itself.

On the night of their mother’s fiftieth birthday gala, their father, Chancellor, is set to announce his plans to turn his political focus beyond his current position as a member of the city council. He has tasted the benefits that come with holding office, and has the power and influence to make a serious run at climbing the political ladder.

The future is looking bright for the King family. That is, until the devil comes to claim his due, and threatens to destroy everything Chancellor has worked to build. To survive the coming storm, each member of the royal family will have to make a sacrifice, even those who are reluctant to wear the crown.

Zero O'Clock par C.J. Farley (Akashic Books)

Description : In early March 2020 in New Rochelle, New York, teenager Geth Montego is fumbling with the present and uncertain about her future. She only has three friends: her best friend Tovah, who’s been acting weird ever since they started applying to college; Diego, who she wants to ask to prom; and the K-pop band BTS, because the group always seems to be there for her when she needs them (at least in her head).

She could use some help now. Geth’s small city becomes one of the first COVID-19 containment zones in the US. As her community is upended by the virus and stirred up by the growing Black Lives Matter protests, Geth faces a choice and a question: Is she willing to risk everything to fight for her beliefs? And if so, what exactly does she believe in? C.J. Farley captures a moment in spring 2020 no teenager will ever forget. It sucks watching the world fall apart. But sometimes you have to start from zero.

Ada and the Galaxies par Alan Lightman (MIT Kids Press)

Description : New York Times best-selling author Alan Lightman, in collaboration with Olga Pastuchiv, brings galaxies close in a stunning picture-book tribute to the interconnectedness of the natural world. Layering photographs taken from the Hubble telescope into charming and expressive art, illustrator Susanna Chapman zooms in on one child’s experiences: Ada knows that the best place for star-gazing is on the island in Maine where she vacations with her grandparents. By day, she tracks osprey in the trees, paddles a kayak, and hunts for shells. But she’s most in her element when the sun goes down and the stars blink to life. Will the fog this year foil her plans, or will her grandfather find a way to shine a spotlight on the vast puzzle of the universe . . . until the weather turns?

Four Streets and a Square: A History of Manhattan and the New York Idea par Marc Aronson (Candlewick Press)

Description : A veteran nonfiction storyteller dives deep into the four-hundred-year history of Manhattan to map the island’s unexpected intersections. Focusing on the evolution of four streets and a square (Wall Street, 42nd Street, West 4th Street, 125th Street, and Union Square) Marc Aronson explores how new ideas and forms of art evolved from social blending. Centuries of conflict—among original Americans and Europeans, slavers and the enslaved, rich and poor, immigrants and native-born—produced segregation, oppression, and violence, but also new ways of speaking, singing, and being American. From the Harlem Renaissance to Hammerstein, from gay pride in the Village to political clashes at Tammany Hall, this clear-eyed pageant of the island’s joys and struggles—enhanced with photos and drawings, multimedia links to music and film, and an extensive bibliography and source notes—is, above all, a love song to Manhattan’s triumphs.

Horodno Burning par Michael Freed-Thall (Rootstock Publishing)

Description : “Michael Freed-Thall’s Horodno Burning is a beautifully textured, epic historical novel with an ending that will simultaneously break your heart and inspire you to live life to the fullest. With courageous, noble, and big-hearted characters at its center, the book takes readers on a journey through turbulent and dramatic times and into a rich and stirring account of Jewish history. Readers of historical fiction who look for strong female characters at the spine will be enraptured by this exquisite debut.”

—Stephanie Storey, bestselling author of Oil and Marble and Raphael, Painter in Rome

In the Russian Empire’s Pale of Settlement, Esther Leving, a brilliant young bibliophile, chafes at male dominance, religious dogma, and antisemitism. Bernard Garfinkle, a religious Jew and the son of a vodka distiller, hides a shameful secret—in a culture that worships books, he can’t read. Despite their differences, they fall in love. Esther teaches Bernard to read and he in turn builds her a bookshop. They start a family, but when ferocious pogroms target Russian Jews, they must confront violent oppression.

Exploring the turbulent history that led to the migration of one-and-a-half million Jews from czarist Russia to America, Horodno Burning is a love letter to literature, freedom, and Jewish survival.

The View from the Very Best House in Town par Meeha Trehan (Walker Books US)

Description : Sam and Asha. Asha and Sam. A perfect pair of friends whose differences complement well, and whose main similarity, autism, means they understand each other. They are a fixture, an established thing, just as Donnybrooke, the mansion that sits on the highest hill in Coreville, is the acknowledged best house in town—and Asha’s dream home. But when Sam is accepted into elite Castleton Academy, leaving Asha to navigate public middle school alone, she begins to wonder if the things she is certain about are so fixed after all. Because soon Sam is spending time with Prestyn, Asha’s tormentor whose family also happens to own Donnybrooke, and who have forbidden Asha from setting foot inside. Told from the points of view of Asha, Sam, and Donnybrooke itself, this remarkable debut explores themes of prejudice and classism as it delves into the mysteries of what makes a person a friend and a house a home.

The Sturgeon's Heart par Amy E. Casey (Gibson House Press)

Description : The Sturgeon’s Heart startles from the beginning of this visionary debut novel.

Three people in the same northern city of Duluth, Minnesota, are vanishing in different ways.

Howard Wright finds his skin turning transparent, revealing the bloody workings of musculature beneath. His body becomes otherworldly and insistent, spinning him into visions that echo trauma from his childhood. Sarah Turnsfield is living under an assumed identity, on the run from her past as a meteoric scientific prodigy. Content to work as a grocery clerk, she is determined to live a life on her own terms, where the landscape of her mind is hers alone. Jo Breckmier seeks a new start in Duluth after a bitter divorce. She moves into the apartment unit across from Howard’s, leaning on alcohol and a stubborn will to reinvent herself. The woods and the lake seem to call to her as she laments her shipwrecked life.

When instinct, the swiftly warming spring, and Howard’s monstrous body conspire to bring the three together, each will discover how long they can hide—Jo from her loneliness, Sarah from her rising paranoia, and Howard from his intensifying transformation. On one remarkable night along the rugged shore of Lake Superior, the lines between reality and legend intersect. Identities are broken and remade. In this contemporary monster story, the earth itself amplifies both the grotesque and the beautiful.

The Three Princes of Serendip: New Tellings of Old Tales for Everyone par Rodaan Al Galidi (Candlewick Press)

Description : The twenty fables and folktales in this illustrated storybook have taken a long journey. Many have roots that stretch across Europe, Asia, and Africa, but when award-winning writer and gatherer of tales Rodaan Al Galidi learned them in his homeland of Iraq, it was as Arabic folktales and as part of the Arabic storytelling tradition. When he migrated to the Netherlands, he shaped twenty of those tales into his debut book for children, which was translated to English by Laura Watkinson. Filled with wisdom about love and acceptance, and warnings against folly, these elegantly translated stories—many unknown in the United States—of donkeys and roosters, kings, sheikhs, and paupers are exquisitely illustrated by cut-paper artist Geertje Aalders. Beautifully packaged, The Three Princes of Serendip is a rich and varied introduction to the world of Middle Eastern folklore.

Picturing a Nation: The Great Depression’s Finest Photographers Introduce America to Itself par Martin W. Sander (Candlewick Press)

Description : In an exquisitely curated volume of 140 full-color and black-and-white photographs, Martin W. Sandler unpacks the United States Farm Security Administration’s sweeping visual record of the Great Depression. In 1935, with the nation bent under unprecedented unemployment and economic hardship, the FSA sent ten photographers, including Walker Evans, Dorothea Lange, and Gordon Parks, on the road trip of a lifetime. The images they logged revealed the daily lives of Southern sharecroppers, Dust Bowl farmers in the Midwest, Western migrant workers, and families scraping by in Northeast cities. Using their cameras as weapons against poverty and racism—and in service of hope, courage, and human dignity—these talented photographers created not only a collective work of art, but a national treasure. Grouped into four geographical regions and locked in focus by rich historical commentary, these images—many now iconic—are history at its most powerful and immediate. Extensive back matter includes photographer profiles and a bibliography.

Scribbles, Sorrows, and Russet Leather Boots: The Life of Louisa May Alcott par Liz Rosenberg (Candlewick Press)

Description : Moody and restless, teenage Louisa longed for freedom. Faced with the expectations of her loving but hapless family, the Alcotts, and of nineteenth-century New England society, Louisa struggled to find her place. On long meandering runs through the woods behind Orchard House, she thought about a future where she could write and think and dream. Undaunted by periods of abject poverty and enriched by friendships with some of the greatest minds of her time and place, she was determined to have this future, no matter the cost.

Drawing on the surviving journals and letters of Louisa and her family and friends, author and poet Liz Rosenberg reunites Louisa May Alcott with her most ardent readers. In this warm and sometimes heartbreaking biography, Rosenberg delves deep into the oftentimes secretive life of a woman who was ahead of her time, imbued with social conscience, and always moving toward her future with a determination that would bring her fame, tragedy, and the realization of her biggest dreams.

Blind Site par Andrew Van Wey (Greywood Bay)

Ce livre est un livre électronique, et non un livre papier.

Description : Distance is Now a Thing of the Past.

That's what investigator Michaels is learning as he uncovers a series of brutal murders committed by what the media is calling the God's Breath Killer-a mysterious entity that leaves no clues, no logical explanation... and no witnesses.

Until a young woman crosses paths with this killer.

Meet Caitlyn Grey: twenty-six, agoraphobic, and blind. She travels the world without leaving home. Caitlyn can blink—sending her mind across earth. It's a skill she's kept hidden, one she shares with this killer.

To the police, it's the impossible: How could a blind woman see a crime that didn't leave prints? But to Michaels it's just the break his investigation needs. He's uncovered a pattern among the dead doctors, scientists, and professors-a connection to a Cold War experiment that weaponized the mind.

Now, Caitlyn and Michaels must team up to track down an evil formed by cruel science—an adversary that can bend perception.

Both an unrelenting thriller and a tale of sci-fi horror, Blind Site is a novel of identity and vengeance, a twisted hunt into fractured consciousness itself.

PLEASE NOTE: This ebook is offered in .epub, .mobi., and .pdf formats.

Chasing Mayflies par Vincent Donovan (Black Rose Writing)

Ce livre est un livre électronique, et non un livre papier.

Description : The initial dilemma for Dennis Sullivan is not the anger he will incur from Jack Nagle’s family, or how to manage a terminally-ill curmudgeon who mistakenly believes he know everyone. He can even humor Jack’s desire to become like a mayfly—one of those nasty spring bugs with a lifespan of only a few days but are unforgettable monsters. The quandary for Dennis is why help someone that was painfully absent when he needed a friend.

Guilted into this late odyssey, Dennis soon finds the road to hell is truly paved with good intentions and it takes courage, faith, and a generous dose of anarchy to change the destination. He also discovers his best friend’s “bucket list on steroids” is not a tale of self-absorption at all, but rather a well-considered plan to seek redemption and touch his estranged family. And Jack plan’s the biggest makeover of all for Dennis.

Destiny of Dreams: Time Is Dear par Cathy Burnham Martin (Quiet Thunder Publishing)

Ce livre est un livre électronique, et non un livre papier.

Description : Set amidst religious intolerance, political instability, and social injustice in the waning days of the Ottoman Empire, the passion of a young Armenian boy grows, the turmoil of a teenaged American girl unfurls, and unthinkable circumstances challenge the resilience of a remarkable mother. “Destiny of Dreams: Time Is Dear” links past and present with a painfully poignant, true story of an Armenian family struggling to survive extraordinary chaos and violence.
While survival remains center stage, love and courage must emerge and prevail, or all will be both lost and forgotten. Subtle themes eerily parallel aspects of life in current judgmental times.
The book contains some explicit descriptions and a couple of disturbing, though not graphic, violent scenes. Though nothing gratuitous, the depictions may be unsuitable for young readers.

The Masterpieces of Eustace Cockrell: Collected Works, Volume I, 1936–1945 par Roger Coleman (Mission Point Press)

Ce livre est un livre électronique, et non un livre papier.

Description : Eustace Cockrell was a pioneer television writer who contributed to many of the early western shows, including “Have Gun Will Travel,” “Maverick” and “Gunsmoke,” while under contract with Warner Brothers. He also wrote for such high-profile television programs as “Alfred Hitchcock Presents,” “I Spy” and “Naked City.” Prior to his Hollywood career, Cockrell was a prolific writer of short stories. Over a 25-year period beginning in 1932, his works appeared regularly in pulp fiction magazines such as Blue Book and Argosy as well as in “slicks” like Collier’s, Saturday Evening Post and Cosmopolitan. Now, for the first time, these stories have been collected in a two-volume set edited by Roger Coleman, Cockrell’s son-in-law.

These two volumes have been organized to reflect a division within Cockrell’s writings. His early stories (1936-1945) portray the darkness of the Great Depression and the coming of World War II. Here, orphans, ex-cons and soldiers often serve as sources of inspiration. His later stories (1946-1957) express greater awareness of social issues and a rebellion against restrictive attitudes, especially those limiting the roles of women and minorities. Cockrell was a gifted writer for whom everyone, even the most hard-hearted and downtrodden, received a second chance. Hope came not from the power of wealth or prestige but from the innocence of children, the integrity of women; and the insights of those often on the fringes of society.

The Masterpieces of Eustace Cockrell further defines Cockrell’s importance as an American writer, whether read in print or watched on the small screen.

    Because the other morning as we were getting ready for the day, Carol said, in the plaintive tones she sometimes uses in articulating this word, “Steve,” uttered with a look on her face that indicated something was bothering her, or perhaps scaring her. As I was standing right next to her bed, I took her hand, and said, “I am right here, Steve is right here,” and gave her hand a little squeeze for emphasis.

    “Thank God,” she replied, articulating those two words quite clearly.

    And that is how the love between dementia sufferer and dementia caregiver sustained them both as this disease did its terrible work … how they both somehow strengthened each other…how in recording in journal form the jarring juxtaposition of the course of the disease and the necessary continuation of day to day life as best it could be managed …how this book tells a love story like no other …

    Supersized Lies: How Myths About Weight Loss Are Keeping Us Fat par Robert J. Davis (Book Publicity Services)

    Ce livre est un livre électronique, et non un livre papier.

    Description : The media, celebrities, weight-loss gurus, and the Internet bombard us with directives about how to shed unwanted pounds: Count calories, cut carbs, exercise more, eat earlier, skip meals, drink more water, sip apple cider vinegar, pop a pill. Yet as more of us try diligently to follow such prescriptions, our waistlines continue to expand.

    *For the ebook, we have PDF available.
    As seasoned health journalist Robert J. Davis argues in Supersized Lies, this failure isn’t our fault. Instead, much of the blame lies with those who peddle misleading advice. Through meticulous research, Davis reveals how hype, half-truths, and unproven solutions steer us into fruitless quests that inflict emotional and physical harm. He also delves into the history of these misguided ideas, spotlighting the characters behind them and the stories of how they emerged and gained wide acceptance.

    In addition to uncovering how and why we’re being led astray, Supersized Lies lays out weight-control strategies that research shows actually work, providing practical information that can help readers avoid wasting time, money, and energy. And it tells the inspiring stories of people who, after falling victim to the falsehoods of conventional guidance, have achieved success by forging their own paths.

    Written in a lively, easy-to-understand style, this myth-shattering book sheds surprising new light on old assumptions and offers a way forward to those caught in the cacophony of weight-loss advice.

    Ce livre est un livre électronique, et non un livre papier.

    Description : Filled with magic, adventure, and mythology pulled deep from Russian and Finish folklore, Cry of the Firebird is a dark fantasy that dives deep into the world of magic, pitting those who would abuse it against those sworn to protect it.

    A firebird is reborn on the borders of Russia, a gate to a world of monsters and magic is breaking, and only a reluctant, untrained shaman stands in the way of a flood of supernatural darkness...

    Anya is still reeling from the death of her grandfather when a strange encounter with the Finnish God of the Dead changes her life forever: Her family has been guarding the gates to the Russian otherworld on their farm for centuries, and she’s the new gatekeeper. Worse, if she doesn’t awaken her magical abilities and assume her new role, the gate will break, unleashing a flood of monsters and dark gods into their world.

    As Anya struggles to make sense of her changing world, she can’t deny the strange encounters. She’ll need to accept her fate and work with the legendary firebird if she hopes to survive—and protect humanity.

    Look to the Sun par Emmie Mears (BHC Press)

    Ce livre est un livre électronique, et non un livre papier.

    Description : This dystopian masterpiece by Emmie Mears gives a “message of hope, acceptance and courage during the worst of times [and] will entrance the reader with its artistic flair, complexity and delivery of raw emotion.” (InD’Tale Magazine).

    For fifteen years, the National People’s Voice has ruled in relative peace, quietly snuffing out dissent wherever it’s found. Silently enforcing their views and doctrine upon the people of Sanmarian as citizens disappear overnight and businesses mysteriously close.

    Rose Abernethy and Beo Mataya are two strangers drawn together by one thing alone: Red Sunrise. A mysterious book no one else seems to have read. A book only two types of people ever ask about—collectors and the National People’s Voice. A book both Rose and Beo feel was written just for them and that strangely seems to echo what is currently going on in their beloved city.

    As the facade of calm seethes into violent protests, Rose and Beo are caught in the middle. Drawn into the center of a forgotten tragedy, they discover the book may not only hold the key to the secret of the city’s past but also the key to its future.

    Charlotte's Story par Carolyn Korsmeyer (TouchPoint Press)

    Ce livre est un livre électronique, et non un livre papier.

    Description : Charlotte Lucas, a character first appearing in Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, has made an unfortunate marriage to the loquacious William Collins, reckoning that his tedious conversation is a small price to pay for the prosperous home and family she hopes to gain. However, trouble brews within the first months of marriage, and she is upset and angered by his presumptuous tendency to interfere with her friendships.

    To ease the strain of their relationship, Charlotte leaves her husband to visit the fashionable city of Bath with several women companions. The weeks in Bath prove to be a time for self-discovery and freedom, even license. Although the marital frost between Charlotte and William begins to thaw, that tranquility lasts only briefly, for events in Bath have resulted in an unfortunate, even calamitous, consequence.

    Charlotte devises a solution to the advantage of all that combines bold connivance and compassionate duplicity. Some would castigate her audacious stratagem, but she believes it justified by the hope of happiness and the wit and courage to seek it.

    Austin’s urban sprawl is crowding in on Al Quinn’s once wilderness lakefront house. Yet he is tugged away from his cozy retirement, his quirky housemates, and even his promise to marry Fergie by a string of seemingly petty crimes that are starting to seem organized.

    Houses may be springing up around where he and his family live, but Al knows from his years as a sheriff’s department detective that there are still some quite dark corners in Texas. He finds himself drawn right out into the darkest of them.

    The trail he follows gets even more sinister when he and Fergie must confront the Aryan Brotherhood. There is no backing away, though, when the lives of his brother Maury, Bonnie, Little Al, and even Al’s dog, Tanner, are at stake.

    On Arcturus VII par Eric Brown (NewCon Press)

    Ce livre est un livre électronique, et non un livre papier.

    Description : On Arcturus VII is a fabulous slice of planetary romance from award-winning author Eric Brown; a novella traditional in style but wholly contemporary in its delivery.

    Former pilot and planetary pioneer Jonathan James is tempted out of retirement by an offer he can’t refuse. It means going back to the one place he vowed never to return to: Arcturus Seven. A Closed Planet; a hothouse world where every plant and animal is hell-bent on killing and consuming you; the place that cost him the life of the only woman he has ever truly loved.

    Jonathan knows the wealthy tycoon seeking to recruit him cannot be trusted, but he has no choice. If he doesn’t do it, someone else will, and Arcturus Seven has a secret, one which must never be disclosed, so Jonathan accepts the mission even though it means facing memories he has spent years denying.

    A sparkling tale of romance, intrigue, and adventure; comforting in its setting, brilliant in its execution.

    Rose Knot: An Arthurian Tale par Kari Sperring (NewCon Press)

    Ce livre est un livre électronique, et non un livre papier.

    Description : Historian and award-winning fantasy author Kari Sperring's latest novella is set in the same Arthurian milieu as the excellent "Serpent Rose". Rose Knot delivers a powerful, richly textured tale featuring some of the lesser known members of King Arthur’s court: the sons of Lot, the Orkney royal family.

    Following the violent death of their mother, Gaheris finds himself the reluctant focus of sibling tensions and squabbles; the suspicion of guilt hangs over him, not least because he will offer no explanation or defence. When Gaheris is tasked with escorting his brother’s wife, Llinos, home from court, neither suspect the tragic consequences that will result, as they lose their way and become stranded within an enchanting and beguiling forest.

    Told by Llinos of Kinkenadron, wife to Sir Gareth of Orkney, this is a gripping saga of love, infidelity, loyalty, misguided intentions and the price of nobility.

    Salvation: A Novel Based on a True Story par Avery Caswell (TouchPoint Press)

    Ce livre est un livre électronique, et non un livre papier.

    Description : Summer 1971, Del Munro, a single mother of four, is struggling to make ends meet when Mother Franklin, a traveling evangelist, offers to take her daughters to the beach in Savannah.

    For nine-year-old Willie June and seven-year-old Glory, restless at the end of a long, hot summer in Charlotte, it's a dream come true. To their beleaguered mother, it's a much needed reprieve.

    But what seemed like a blessing soon turns into a nightmare when the girls are pressed into service by the morbidly obese Mother Franklin whose needs are as outsized as her ambitions.

    When the girls fail to return, Del, evasive about the details of her arrangement with Mother Franklin, panics. People begin to wonder if instead of sending her daughters on vacation, she sold them to the evangelist.

    Based on a true story, Salvation is an evocative and unforgettable saga about stolen innocence that explores the tragic mistakes made by desperate people and the false prophets who exploit their vulnerabilities.

    I Am a Brave Bridge par Sarah Hinlicky Wilson (Thornbush Press)

    Ce livre est un livre électronique, et non un livre papier.

    Description : Once upon a time an American girl moved to a little town in Slovakia. And she fell in love with the country, and with a boy. And then another boy. And then about a dozen boys fell in love with her. Many linguistic and romantic antics ensued, and a happy ending unlike any she could have foreseen.

    This is a story for everyone—the armchair traveler and the real one, the lover of love stories and the connoisseur of culture—but above all, it’s a story for anyone who is always homesick for somewhere else.

    Both pdf and epub formats available.

    Sealed: An Unexpected Journey into the Heart of Grace par Katie Langston (Thornbush Press)

    Ce livre est un livre électronique, et non un livre papier.

    Description : Katie Langston is an unlikely convert to Christianity.

    She grew up in a devout, conservative Mormon family in Utah, served a proselytizing mission to Bulgaria when she was 21, married for “time and all eternity” in the Mormon temple when she was 23. From the outside, she had a typical Mormon life. Inside, she was coming apart at the seams.

    From childhood, she battled “The Questions”—obsessive-compulsive disorder, though she didn’t have a diagnosis for it until much later—and lived inside a complex maze of anxiety and fear. This was compounded by Mormonism’s emphasis on “worthiness,” a designation of acceptability in Mormon practice, that brought her to the edge of despair as a young mother.

    Then, almost by accident, she had an encounter with the grace of Jesus Christ—and her world changed.

    In candid but not sensationalized ways, Langston explores little-understood Mormon practices and teachings while grappling with universal human questions such as the nature of faith, the complexity of family, the process of healing, and what it means to truly belong.

    This book is intended to be a bridge-builder, a way to help non-Mormons understand Mormonism and Mormons orthodox Christianity through the power of personal narrative. Most of all, it is a testimony of Jesus Christ, in the hopes that those who read it—Mormon, Christian, or neither—will catch a glimpse of the spectacular, life-changing grace of God.

    Both pdf and epub formats available.

    A Proper Young Lady par Lianne Simon (Faie Miss Press)

    Ceci est un livre audio.

    Description : An Audible audiobook, narrated by Katie Hart. 7 hours and 7 minutes.

    A woman with the complete form of androgen insensitivity syndrome might never discover that she has testes in her abdomen rather than ovaries and uterus. Danièle knows, and she grieves that she can never have her own children. She has a partial form of AIS that left her with ambiguous genitals, a steady stream of doctors and psychologists, and parents determined to see her happy as a girl.

    After Danièle’s best friend and childhood crush agrees to act as a surrogate for her, Danièle learns that the clinic can extract sperm from her own gonadal biopsies, so she becomes the biological father of Melanie’s baby herself.

    Ethan adores the graceful young woman named Danièle, while Melanie imagines a life with the father of her children. Danièle? She’s happy with her intersex body - somewhere between princess and little boy. But in a black-and-white world, she must choose - once and for all - who she will be and whom she will love.
