Two sisters passed around from family to family as toddlers, handled their situation in dramatically different ways. The older sister internalized the abandonment and rejection, while the younger sister eagerly embraced each new mother figure asking, "Are you my mommy?"

Thirty years after being adopted into a Forever Family, these sisters seek out their past. In the search to reconnect with their biological family, they easily locate and reunite with their birth father. Through this reunion, they start to learn of the difficult life their birth mother had lived, and might still be living.

Several clues point to Native American Heritage through their birth mother's family line. While intense curiosity drives them to know more of their ancestry, their desire to reunite with her is diminished by an uncertainty over whether she wants to be found or if she would rather leave the past behind her where she buried it over 30 years ago.

They seek answers to these questions:

  • Is their birth mother alive? 
  • How will the answer to this question affect them?
  • If found alive, will she accept or reject them? 
  • What secrets has she been guarding all these years?
  • Does she hold the keys to connect them to their tribal ancestry?
  • What will it take to heal the wounds for both mother and daughters?

The tale stretches beyond the exhaustive search for their mother, delving into complicated family relationships, spirituality, healing, and forgiveness.

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

Strange & Terrible Times - R. Paul Tharp

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!!!

This story is a present-day twist on the biblical story of Jacob and his mother Rebecca plotting together against the elderly father Isaac, who is lying on his deathbed, in order to get their hands on the inheritance, and on the power in the family. This is no old fairy tale. Its power is here and now, in each one of us.

Listening to Yankle telling his take on events, we understand the bitter rivalry between him and his brother. We become intimately engaged with every detail of the plot, and every shade of emotion in these flawed, yet fascinating characters. He yearns to become his father's favorite son, seeing only one way open to him, to get that which he wants: deceit.

"What if my father would touch me," asks Yankle. In planning his deception, it is not love for his father, nor respect for his age that drives his hesitation--rather, it is the fear to be found out. And so--covering his arm with the hide of a kid, pretending to be that which he is not--he is now ready for the last moment he is going to have with his father.

When a mutilated corpse is found bound to a tree deep in the forest of remote Aubrey Island, Washington, residents learn that the murder mirrors, in every ritualistic detail, a series of revenge killings described in a century-old local ghost story. More abductions and killings soon follow.
Justin Riddley, recently transferred to the island’s small college, faces growing evidence that one of his new friends and fellow students may be the murderer. John Marshall, redemption-seeking captain of the local police force, leads the frantic murder investigation and struggles to figure out whether the killings are tied to the island's dark and violent past. Tormented by tragic wartime memories, and more convinced with each day that it is humanity’s fate to destroy itself, Marshall races against both the murderer and the specter of his own mental breakdown.
As blood continues to spill, Riddley and Marshall wonder whether there may be a dark, universal force that drives evil deeds great and small, and whether the nature of one’s childhood might sometimes, in the end, be all that separates the saint from the psychopath.

A blood oath, a dreadful curse, and the evil eye. A dark family secret that will shatter lives and the woman who must risk everything to keep it buried.
From two neighbouring villas in the heart of the Tuscan countryside to the elegance of Siena; from a world steeped in ancient superstitions to a culture where family honour is paramount comes, this multi-layered novel of the lives, loves, secrets and strivings of two women and their families in the 13th century.
A blood oath to wed their first born children binds the Benevento and Ventura families. When Prudenza Benevento learns her nemesis, Felicia Ventura, is pregnant, she is jealous and secretly casts the curse of the evil eye upon her. Felicia gives birth to twin boys. Jealous, Prudenza visciously resurrects an ancient superstition that unidentical twins can only come from different fathers. The scandal tears apart Felicia’s marriage and makes her an outcast in the small Italian village where they live.
Fate intervenes, and when Prudenza gives birth to twin daughters, she is desperate to save herself from the same scandal that ruined Felicia. She orders the midwife to take one daughter away. With only a gold ring and a brocade blanket as clues to the infant’s past, the midwife leaves the child and the items in an olive tree in front of a small convent. The nuns lovingly name the child Olivia and raise her.
Years later, in a shocking encounter, Olivia meets a young man named Luca. When an act of God nearly kills her, it is Luca who comes to her rescue. Soon, their love for each cannot be denied. When she finds herself with child, Luca offers to care for her and the child, but cannot wed her because he is already betrothed. Despite her misgivings, her love for Luca proves strong and Olivia places her faith in him and follows him to his new villa and a new life. Luca makes numerous unsuccessful attempts to avoid his forthcoming marriage and marry Olivia instead, but the blood oath and Church laws make it impossible. As the date of Luca’s wedding draws near, and the secrets of Olivia’s secret past begin to surface, long buried secrets are exposed in a twist of fate no family member can anticipate.
