Passed around from family to family before an interstate adoption brought them to Idaho from Oregon, two young girls spend most of their lives wondering why their parents didn't keep them.
Every effort to find information about their past is shut down - by their adoptive family, the adoption agency, and the judicial system. Will they ever find answers to the questions that have haunted them for nearly 30 years?
  • Why was Janet born on the side of a highway in the middle of the night?
  • Who left these girls with the neighbors and didn't come back?
  • What do the girls remember from before their adoption?
  • Why did each family pass them on to another family instead of giving them a permanent home?
  • Is someone out there missing them?
  • Is there a conspiracy to keep them from knowing the truth?
  • What does a 'forever family' mean anyway?
Learn the answers to these questions as you catch a glimpse of the psychological and emotional nightmare that surrounds the search for biological parents.
After decades of fruitless searches for their biological parents, something miraculous happens to open up the door for a reunion to take place. With a name and contact information, would the girls have the courage to reach out to a man who gave them away almost 30 years ago?
Take a ride on an emotional roller coaster with these two sisters as they defy their adoptive family's wishes to search out their birth parents.

what it seems.  Separated by unforeseen circumstance, is their love powerful enough to bring them together again?

Strange & Terrible Times - R. Paul Tharp

Rating - PG13

Imagine the world portrayed through a severely unvarnished tale of drugs, alcohol, prostitutes, mobsters, motorcycle gangs, and a whole host of other curious beings. It is an honest portrayal of the fringe southerner, at his best and his worst, and is a sober tasting of the counter cultures that dwell on these gritty fringes. The types of people, which skid along this uneasy gamut, range from the kindest of the most honest and meek, on to the most depraved and callused among them. It is humorous, and even ludicrous, at times and tragic at others, but it is what it is, and I post no apologies for any of it.
This modest of works is the paltriest literary testing of Tennessee William’s boasts that “Nothing human disgusts”, all the while being a celebration of Walt Whitman’s fanciful claims of “Being large enough to contain multitudes”. Do you contain multitudes, dear hearts? Climb in, sit down, hold on and shut up!!!

Coralina Corissa, known as “Coco” to her eight sisters, is the prettiest princess of a hundred kingdoms. And she knows it. Her beauty has always given her anything she wanted... and any man she wanted.
Runa Realm is facing a new threat. Strange bandits, disguised as nobles, are attacking beautiful women to steal their hair. Coralina isn’t concerned. Until Prince Luxley, her favorite (but not only) lover, gets clobbered by a peasant called Gord, who mistakenly assumed the prince was a bandit.
Outraged, Coralina plans to punish the peasant by deliberately breaking his heart. But Gord is nearly blind. For the first time ever, Coralina must rely on more than her looks to ensnare a man. But the harder she flirts, the more Gord seems to hate her. And the more her own heart (and hair) becomes endangered.
The Nine Princesses Novellas is a series that chronicles the adventures of an unconventional family of princesses, the struggles they face in a kingdom often hostile to their humble origins, and the day-to-day dramas of nine young women whose personalities often clash like swords. Fans of Gale Carson Levine and Shannon Hale would enjoy this young-adult series. Recommended for ages 12 and up.

Genre - Fantasy
Rating - PG13
4.0 (46 reviews)
Free until 2 March 2013
Every so often, an epic adventure emerges that makes the blood surge, the spine tingle, and the heart smile page after exhilarating page. Such is Whill of Agora, Michael James Ploof’s action-packed fantasy that visits strange new lands as it unveils how one exceptional young man named Whill makes full use of fierce wits, superior skills, and relentless will to help defend the land of Agora from the monstrous Draggard. With plenty of drama and action packed battle scenes, Whill of Agora will enthrall anyone on the quest for great adventure, good times, and an infectiously optimistic outlook on even the darkest and most dangerous of days.
It is the year 5170 in the land Agora, where humans, dwarves, and elves have existed in peace for centuries. Now, however, the human King Addakon has invaded and waged war on neighboring Isladon. The once peaceful Kingdoms of Agora are on the brink of continental war. The Dark Elf Eadon, Addakon's master, and his army of Dragon-Elf crossbreeds, the Draggard, threaten to conquer all kingdoms. The final hour has arrived.
Enter young Whill, a nineteen-year-old ranger with battle savvy and untapped abilities. Having spent years roaming Agora and training with his mentor Abram, Whill has become a bright intellectual and a master of combat. What he seeks most, however, is the identity of his birth parents. Instead, he finds a tumultuous terrain and a prophecy placing him in the center of the struggle.
Along the way, Whill encounters an equally inspired group of companions that are matched in skill and mission. These include Rhunis the Dragon Slayer, the young Tarren, the fearless Dwarf Roakore, the beguiling warrior Elf Avriel, and the powerful Zerafin. As Whill joins forces, he forges bonds far mightier than their escalating travails. With high adventure and fierce friendship, Whill of Agora will capture your imagination and grip your heart during every super-charged escapade that Agora’s bold and grinning brotherhood embraces.
What fantasy adventure would be complete without a decent map, worn at the edges of course. Whill of Agora features a complete map of Agora so that you can easily manuever through the wilds and bustling cities alike. Click the "Look inside" feature to view map.
If you enjoy a good story told well, with interesting and often times hilarious characters, you will enloy Whill of Agora. With its rich history, 'page turner' pacing, unique magic system and majestic lands, the first book in the Whill of Agora series immerses the reader in a beautiful and believable world wrought with danger, war, manipulation, and mayhem.
The Five Books of Jesus - James Goldbery
Genre - Christian Fiction
Rating - PG
4.8 (10 reviews)
Free until 1 April 2013
It starts in the desert. John the prophet lowers Jesus under the Jordan’s muddy waters and pulls him up, just as a bird swoops down to skim the river’s surface.
It spreads next to Galilee, where some welcome Jesus as a disciple of John and others grow wary of his rising influence—fishermen are leaving their nets, tax collectors their offices, and students their masters to listen to this new saint.
After abandoning his nets, Andrew ties knots in the threads of his shirt to remember Jesus’ teachings. After escaping his slum, Judas waits for Jesus to call down the legions of angels who can end a broken world.
But just as Jesus’ movement in the north is gaining strength, he turns south toward the Temple and a fate his followers will struggle to understand.
The Five Books of Jesus, James Goldberg’s lyrical novelization of Jesus’ ministry, tells the story of the gospels as Jesus' followers might have experienced it: without knowing what would happen next or how to make sense of events as they unfold.
