Book Excerpt :

In eleventh-century Wales, a land steeped in ancient Celtic lore, two lovers discover a passion that journeys beyond time. Young Wynne of Gwernach has no dreams of marriage. Innocent and pure of heart, she believes that love is an illusion. Instead, she devotes herself to managing the great family estate nestled in the raw beauty of Wales, vowing to protect it and her younger brother until he comes of age to inherit. And then Madoc of Powys enters into her life, claiming his betrothal to Wynne when she was a babe. Madoc is both feared and worshipped throughout the land, for his family’s power is said to stem from Merlin himself. Yet it is a very human desire he evokes in Wynne; his warm gaze makes her flesh burn with unaccustomed fire. Still, she remains firm in her belief that she can never marry, can never be owned. But Madoc of Powys is a Celt in his heart and soul. He knows Wynne’s reluctance to wed is the legacy of another life. In time she will know everything—for which he is both hopeful and desperately afraid. For Wynne and Madoc have been lovers in another time, another place. But what unfinished destiny lays between them?

Book Short Summary:

The second book of Lauren Barnholdt's exiting Moment of Truth series: three books, three girls, one life-changing senior trip. When the email arrived in Quinn Reynolds's in box on the morning of her flight to Florida, she sent it straight to her trash folder. The last thing Quinn needed was to be reminded of the pact she made with her ex–best friends—the one where she promised she would do something crazy before graduation. But that was before everything on the trip went wrong. Now, after a lifetime of playing it safe, Quinn figures that she might as well get a little wild…after all, what does she have to lose? When Abram, a local boy she met on the beach, asks her to hang out, she says yes. But while a vacation romance could be the best way to fulfill the pact, it might be the worst thing for her heart.… Each book in this trilogy is told from the perspective of a different girl—Lyla, Aven, and Quinn—former best friends who, back in freshman year, wrote emails to their future selves about the one thing they hope to accomplish before they graduate. Over the course of the series, each girl will learn about life, love, and the truth about the fight that ended their perfect friendship.

Being known as the fastest gun in the west, and killing his fair share of men in the process, makes Wild Bill Hickok a constant target for his enemies seeking revenge. So, when he rides into the town of Deadwood Gulch in the Dakota Territory, he always has to keep an eye on his back. Like many people in the late 1800s, Bill has set out to make his fortune in the gold rush, and Deadwood is bustling with gold miners, saloons, and brothels. When Bill fails to stake a claim on the river for gold panning, he resorts to his first love in order to make some quick cash: poker. With his good friends Calamity Jane and Charlie Utter keeping him company, the former lawman finds himself winning at the tables, and keeping the saloons in business with his love of whiskey. Wild Bill is trying to save enough money to provide a good life for him and his wife for years to come, but his enemies have other ideas. The Dead Man’s Hand: A Moment in Time is the fascinating second book in Katheryn Shelly’s Past Life Journey series.

Book Short Summary:

Born in rural Eastern North Carolina of parents near poverty, this author has told a compelling story from the heart. It is easy to read. Having been born in the south, the author scatters bits of southern humor throughout which brings a smile to your face. Death brought on despair at an early age and drugs brought on challenges to an already confusing world. Concealing a deep dark secret was hard and challenging at times and caused the author to question his God. A failed relationship brought on many moments of sad reflection, but a new love brought about happiness and laughter. Hard work and determination gave birth to a successful career that delivered the author, as an adult, from a world of poverty. Through a process of discovering his inner self, his values, his motivation, his goals, and beliefs, his life changed. It is a story of encouragement that should be read by all who have an interest in the human journey.Jan: "This is a compelling and beautiful love story. It is an easy and fun read filled with insights not only into the climb out of poverty but the coming of age of a young man in the Sixties and beyond."Loyd: "This author told a great story; I read it in one sitting."Peggi: "I was struck by the author's honesty and candid story. He 'shows' the story rather than simply telling it. That is, one can visualize the environment and even feel the tension.Don: "I couldn't put the book down.

Book Short Summary:

Right now I’m feeling much pain, so much so that if I don’t write this story I promised my kids would soon be done and always and never materialized, which has to be done, if only for my own sanity and to ultimately free us all up, I will feel lost. Now. What I didn’t expect to write is this other story. But that must be told to give a better understanding of why this whole mess happened anyway. My dupey heads might come up with better reasons, and then maybe someday they’ll write their books with fond memories and less pain. A bestseller will be yours, I’m sure. If not in the bookstores, it will be in your hearts. I started writing my book over thirty years ago and some. (Smile.)

Book Short Summary:

A Moment in Time will encourage believers to entertain principles of grace-based theology and, after careful consideration, embrace them. When we’re convinced of the gracious simplicity in acquiring the free gift of eternal life, it impacts how we share our faith. When we’re confident this free gift can’t be lost, it calms us down. When we’re certain Christ will repay and recompense us for what we do with this free gift, we’re motivated to “be holy” as He is holy. In looking at the biblical text, Christians will be reminded that justification is provided at no cost to them. They’ll see there’s room for failure in the Christian life. But they’ll also learn where there’s great grace, there’s great accountability--and great reward. It is wonderful to see this fresh look at many of the grace issues at a popular level. Mark Spencer has given us an insightful look into the implications of grace in the task of evangelism and discipleship. Recommended reading!! --Dr. Joseph Dillow Mark Spencer has the wonderful ability to communicate deep biblical truths in an interesting and straightforward way. The reader will find a clear articulation of the grace message and convincing arguments against those who have corrupted it. I am glad to see this comprehensive and persuasive presentation of the gospel of grace and its implications. It will serve us well as we seek to share this message with the world. --Dr. Charlie Bing This is a book that needs to be taken seriously as a helpful guide to developing a strategic plan to be servants of Christ in our areas of influence. As Mark said, his last 25 years as a police officer went by overnight - so how fast will the years fly by in our lives? We all have a mission and an obligation to be useful to the Master. --Dr. John South

Book Short Summary:

This is the story of the Hayden Family who left New York City in 1850 in search for a better life in Nebraska. Thomas Hayden, his wife Isobel, and their 3 children, Emma, Mitchell, and 4 yr. old Melissa, departed in the early spring. And the reason they left was simple—it was the gang violence from the infamous Five Corners. Thomas Hayden, famous for his expert marksmanship, led the family thru good and bad weather until they were halfway there—then tragedy struck! They lost Melissa to some unknown malady. After burying her under an old tree, they continued on with heavy hearts until they reached their final destination in Nebraska. There, with the help of the powerful Johnson ranch, they built their home. A turning point in their lives happened when ore was discovered and a town was built a mile north of their homestead. Under Thomas’s suggestion, it was named Johnsonville. The town was soon filled with people, including miners and merchants—and they were all thrilled and felt protected that Thomas Hayden was only a mile away. The ranch foreman, Hank Whittaker, soon developed sexual and romantic feelings for Isobel—and she felt the same for him! But nothing was ever said or ever mentioned; they both kept it to themselves. Isobel, the school teacher, soon was the most popular lady in Johnsonville, mainly because of her bubbly personality, but the real reason was the fact she was Thomas’s wife. And as the town grew and they erected a dance hall right behind the jail, Isobel was ecstatic; no one loved to dance more than her. As the years went on the Hayden family, along with the townspeople, became friendly with the local tribe that was run by their powerful chief, Running Elk. So the only problem the townspeople ever encountered was the odd rowdy drifter and he was quickly escorted out of town. With plenty of ore still in the ground, everybody thought that they would live a good and peaceful life. They all thought nothing could go wrong—then the Civil War broke out! And, of course, President Lincoln wanted none other than Thomas Hayden. Thomas didn’t mind, but Isobel did; because of her negative thoughts about most things, she figured Thomas would be killed and she would end up a lonely widow with 2 children to look after. Dr. Katherine McBride is madly in love with Thomas. Ever since that wonderful day in New York when she had begged her father to take her to see this marvelous 11 yr. old boy give a demonstration. She loved him so much, even though she was only 4 yrs. old herself. The irony is that she is so beautiful; most men would simply die for her. But the only man she could love was Thomas. Tormented by both wicked and loving thoughts about being with him, she knew it was all just a silly pipe dream. Covered in blood and working tireless hours, her dreams are about to come true—Thomas Hayden’s division, led by General Masters, will soon be entering her camp! Much to the delight of Isobel and the children, Thomas was coming home safe and sound. Even the painful rumors about Thomas having an affair didn’t bother her now. As time went on, the only major problem was that a gang of outlaws wanted to kill Thomas and held the town up for ransom—but Thomas, along with Chief Running Elk saved the day. When kid grows up, he or she wants to be hero. And in the old west it was no different, young boys want to become a famous gunfighter. And that is exactly what Mitchell Hayden wants to be—another Vance Cordeau, the fastest gun in the west! It was decided by Thomas that he will teach Mitchell the system that his father taught him, simply because if Mitchell couldn’t protect himself, then he would probably end up being killed. After Mitchell left, his reputation grew—and became known as, much to the chagrin of Thomas, ‘Mitch Hayden,’ the fastest gunfighter in the west. So, would Mitch get killed or become a teacher? And would Thomas’s farsighted hopes and dreams come true? Or would he have to move again to avoid oncoming trouble? Would the beautiful Emma really become an old maid? And how long can Isobel and Hank keep from having a sexual encounter? And will Dr. Katherine McBride’s dream of one day having Thomas as her lover or husband finally come true? Read on!

Book Short Summary:

Falling in love with the enemy has never felt so good for two women on opposite sides of a family feud. Claire Fontenot jilted her high school boyfriend, Kurt Savoy, at the altar, igniting a storm between the two families that culminated in fiercely competing hot sauce businesses. When she reluctantly returns home to a small town in Louisiana to run her aunt’s antique clock shop, she doesn’t exactly receive the warmest of welcomes. Ivy Savoy is Kurt’s younger sister and grew up learning never to trust a Fontenot. When Ivy spots a treasured lost clock from her childhood in the window of the antique shop, she can’t resist going inside. Claire and Ivy, who have every reason to hate each other, can’t seem to stop feeling exactly the opposite. Falling in love is out of the question if they can’t convince their families—and each other—to let go of the past.

Book Short Summary:

It only takes a moment to change the world. Our past is littered with these moments; from the grandest in the land - a Queen claiming her crown at a Suffolk castle - to the humblest - a workman whitewashing religious pictures in a church.These moments in time helped create our history in East Anglia. In this book, former journalist Peter Sargent takes us on a journey in time, from the mysterious ancient figure of the Green Man in Norwich Cathedral, via the day King Charles II rode a winner at Newmarket's racetrack on to Second World War soldiers preparing for the D-Day landings in woods on the Norfolk-Suffolk border.In this series of short stories, many of which first appeared in the Eastern Daily Press newspaper, encounter famous figures who made their mark on the eastern counties. Here is Oliver Cromwell raising an army, Queen Elizabeth I making a Royal Progress, while her sister Mary plays a game of thrones, highwayman Dick Turpin goes about his nefarious business and Norfolk squire and Britain's first Prime Minister, Robert Walpole, saves the country from financial ruin.You'll also meet less familiar figures and veer off the beaten track. Here are tales of a Cambridgeshire Iron Age 'hill fort', Norfolk's raffish 19th Century bare knuckle boxers and the sailors who fought a huge, but barely remembered, 17th Century sea battle off the Suffolk coast.

Book Short Summary:

A Boston Globe–Horn Book Honor Book Very short, creative stories pair with bold illustrations in this picture book that will inspire young readers to stretch their imaginations and write stories of their own.

There's an 80 percent chance you're poor. Time poor, that is. Four out of five adults report feeling that they have too much to do and not enough time to do it.

Book Short Summary:

A bestselling modern classic—both poignant and funny—narrated by a fifteen year old autistic savant obsessed with Sherlock Holmes, this dazzling novel weaves together an old-fashioned mystery, a contemporary coming-of-age story, and a fascinating excursion into a mind incapable of processing emotions. Christopher John Francis Boone knows all the countries of the world and their capitals and every prime number up to 7,057. Although gifted with a superbly logical brain, Christopher is autistic. Everyday interactions and admonishments have little meaning for him. At fifteen, Christopher’s carefully constructed world falls apart when he finds his neighbour’s dog Wellington impaled on a garden fork, and he is initially blamed for the killing. Christopher decides that he will track down the real killer, and turns to his favourite fictional character, the impeccably logical Sherlock Holmes, for inspiration. But the investigation leads him down some unexpected paths and ultimately brings him face to face with the dissolution of his parents’ marriage. As Christopher tries to deal with the crisis within his own family, the narrative draws readers into the workings of Christopher’s mind. And herein lies the key to the brilliance of Mark Haddon’s choice of narrator: The most wrenching of emotional moments are chronicled by a boy who cannot fathom emotions. The effect is dazzling, making for one of the freshest debut in years: a comedy, a tearjerker, a mystery story, a novel of exceptional literary merit that is great fun to read.

Book Short Summary:

A fascinating account of the music and epic social change of 1973, a defining year for David Bowie, Bruce Springsteen, Pink Floyd, Elton John, the Rolling Stones, Eagles, Elvis Presley, and the former members of The Beatles. 1973 was the year rock hit its peak while splintering—just like the rest of the world. Ziggy Stardust travelled to America in David Bowie’s Aladdin Sane. The Dark Side of the Moon began its epic run on the Billboard charts, inspired by the madness of Pink Floyd's founder, while all four former Beatles scored top ten albums, two hitting #1. FM battled AM, and Motown battled Philly on the charts, as the era of protest soul gave way to disco, while DJ Kool Herc gave birth to hip hop in the Bronx. The glam rock of the New York Dolls and Alice Cooper split into glam metal and punk. Hippies and rednecks made peace in Austin thanks to Willie Nelson, while outlaw country, country rock, and Southern rock each pointed toward modern country. The Allman Brothers, Grateful Dead, and the Band played the largest rock concert to date at Watkins Glen. Led Zep’s Houses of the Holy reflected the rise of funk and reggae. The singer songwriter movement led by Bob Dylan, Neil Young, and Joni Mitchell flourished at the Troubadour and Max’s Kansas City, where Bruce Springsteen and Bob Marley shared bill. Elvis Presley’s Aloha from Hawaii via Satellite was NBC’s top-rated special of the year, while Elton John’s albums dominated the number one spot for two and a half months. Just as U.S. involvement in Vietnam drew to a close, Roe v. Wade ignited a new phase in the culture war. While the oil crisis imploded the American dream of endless prosperity, and Watergate’s walls closed in on Nixon, the music of 1973 both reflected a shattered world and brought us together.

Book Short Summary:

The New York Times bestselling authors of Switch and Made to Stick explore why certain brief experiences can jolt us and elevate us and change us—and how we can learn to create such extraordinary moments in our life and work. While human lives are endlessly variable, our most memorable positive moments are dominated by four elements: elevation, insight, pride, and connection. If we embrace these elements, we can conjure more moments that matter. What if a teacher could design a lesson that he knew his students would remember twenty years later? What if a manager knew how to create an experience that would delight customers? What if you had a better sense of how to create memories that matter for your children? This book delves into some fascinating mysteries of experience: Why we tend to remember the best or worst moment of an experience, as well as the last moment, and forget the rest. Why “we feel most comfortable when things are certain, but we feel most alive when they’re not.” And why our most cherished memories are clustered into a brief period during our youth. Readers discover how brief experiences can change lives, such as the experiment in which two strangers meet in a room, and forty-five minutes later, they leave as best friends. (What happens in that time?) Or the tale of the world’s youngest female billionaire, who credits her resilience to something her father asked the family at the dinner table. (What was that simple question?) Many of the defining moments in our lives are the result of accident or luck—but why would we leave our most meaningful, memorable moments to chance when we can create them? The Power of Moments shows us how to be the author of richer experiences.

From author Ilene Bates comes a beautiful historical romance that fiction readers are sure to enjoy. She has woven a wonderful tapestry of love, passion, history, Scotland, art, and more to capture a Moment in Time. In this mesmerizing blend of time travel, Scottish burr, and true love, everyone will truly find this captivating from beginning to end. Anna Sinclair has just become a widow. Though she has lost her husband of ten years, they have lost all romance and love way before his death. And now, hours after his burial, she cries not because of her loss but because of guilt—that they didn’t try harder to work things out. To escape from all this, she decides to accept the job offer from a museum in Inverness, Scotland. As she starts working in the museum, she has particularly noticed a portrait of a sexy eighteenth century Scottish Highlander with amazing green eyes. From the very first time she saw it, she has been drawn to it. She is inspecting it to try to date it and identify the artist. One day, before the museum’s curator has arrived to inspect this particular portrait, she stands in front of it and examines it—trying to read the signature of the artist. But as she draws nearer, she feels a tingling sensation. The closer she gets, the stronger the feeling—until the museum has disappeared and she wakes up lying on the soft, wet grass outside. She doesn’t understand what happened. When she finally looks up, she finds herself staring straight into the piercing, deep emerald green eyes of the Scottish Highlander from the portrait—very alive and real. She has so many questions: who is this man, where is she, what year is it, how did she get here—and she’ll soon find out the answers, and more, in this exciting story.

Book Short Summary:

Abstract Musings is a collection of poetical verse where honest feelings are unveiled as disclosed from the imagination of the author. Inspiring works are, offered, inviting open-mindedness as repetitive messages, flow, exposing truth of life where not all is pure and wonderful. Very often rhythmic words combine to form haunting images, revealing belief that everything is mystically possible, yet, sometimes horribly insufferable. Much of this poetry reflects ideals inciting fate as reality on a journey through designated vistas. Many show that, moments of fear obliterate hope, telling we must offer heart-felt prayers to GOD asking to, be shown a new path to our destined eternity. Throughout this book faith is, revealed as uppermost always, testifying to our Creator's power over HIS scientific domain. Existence and illusion intertwined invariably by love or loss are recurring themes explored intuitively in, these writings. Two of Judith's newest poems, "Castles of Sand" and "Crystal Beaches", are examples of the author's passionate cries voicing inequality for mankind, with greed totally violating harmonious guardianship of our Earth. They were, penned mid 2010 after the devastation caused to the world by corrupt governments, big banks, and big corporations (particularly BP) was, realized. Abstract Musings correlates social and moral conscience, deigned through thought and vision by a questing soul, displayed lyrically within the pages of this volume.
