In the tradition of Frank McCourt and "Angela's Ashes," Donald Dempsey chronicles one boy's ordeals with poverty, religion, and physical and mental abuse as he attempts to come of age with only his street smarts and sense of humor to guide him.
Twelve-year-old Donny is a real-life cross between Huckleberry Finn and Holden Caulfield. Donny is doing his best to navigate the world he shares with his cruel and neglectful mother, his mother's abusive boyfriends, churchgoers who want to save Donny's soul, and a best friend who wants Donny to go to work for a dangerous local thug doing petty theft and dealing drugs.
Donny does everything he can to take care of himself and his younger brothers, but with each new development, the present becomes more fraught with peril--and the future more uncertain.

How much would a father sacrifice for his child?
Nineteen years ago, Indiana police found the body of a young girl, burned beyond recognition and buried in the woods. They arrested George Calhoun for murdering his daughter, and his wife testified against him at the trial. The jury convicted him. Now his appeals have been exhausted, and his execution is just a few weeks away.
George said he didn’t do it. That the body isn’t his little Angelina. But that’s all he’s ever said – no other defense, no other explanation.
Dani Trumball, an attorney for the Help Innocent Prisoners Project, wants to believe him. After all, there was no forensic evidence that the body in the woods was George’s daughter. But if the girl isn’t Angelina, then who is it? And what happened to the Calhouns’ missing daughter?
For nineteen years, George Calhoun has stayed silent. But that’s about to change, and the story he tells Dani—if it’s true—changes everything.

Handsome, brilliant, memorable: he was the wrong man for the wrong assignment. No wonder his first mission behind enemy lines was also his last. But from his failure came the hope and determination that birthed a new nation.
Meet Nathan Hale, the most endearing hero of the American Revolution. Halestorm presents the true—well, mostly true; OK, partially true—story of the legendary 21-year-old spy who hanged after regretting he had only one life to give for his country.
Early death ought to be enough disaster for any guy, but Nathan also has a spirited sweetheart, a penchant for puns—and a deadly rival for his lady’s hand.
Filled with love and conflict, murder and betrayal, Halestorm stirs our deepest emotions as it transports readers to the exotic world of Revolutionary America and asks, “What would you choose: love, honor, or freedom?”

Some people's fates are written in the stars. Andrew's was written before the stars
were.

All ANDREW GRIGGS had anticipated on the day of his sixteenth birthday, was to grow one year older, and perhaps wiser. However, with it came death, fire, slavery, and whole new identity. Gifted with a compass, a cryptic letter, and a map, questions about Andrew's past, his future and his true lineage haunt him. Forced to work in the dark mines of Nookpot, alone, with only his friends, TALIC and FREDDIE, for company, Andrew risks his life to save dozens of slaves like himself, only to be thrown into a confusing web of trouble, and incriminated as a killer. A plant killer---someone who could cause famine, destroy entire crops of grain and turn giant trees into sticks of dry wood. Sentenced to death, Andrew discovers life, new purpose, and a chance to prove his worth. Laden with a huge task, Andrew sets out, with the help of his friends, to keep The Fallen from heralding in the darkest age of history known to mankind.
ANDREW AND THE QUEST OF ORION'S BELT, Rise of the Fallen, is an epic tale that will appeal to fantasy fans who love the adventure of delving into magical worlds filled with great opposition, populated with brave souls and clever characters.

What if you had the perfect life? Imagine being married to a rich, handsome, powerful attorney while living in a beautiful expansive home. Your friends envied you – even wished they were you. To all who knew you, you were living the ultimate American dream. This was Mary Franklin's life. Meanwhile, hidden behind her smiles was a mountain of sorrows. Secretly, the most horrendous crime that can happen to another human was committed against her. Fear and dread consumed her – taunted her. Her dream life was nothing more than a stage with dark curtains hiding her nightmarish reality.
When Mary discovers that her husband, Roger, was behind the most unspeakable act in her life, it becomes undeniably evident that she can’t stay with him or feel safe even in the same city! In desperation, she assumes a different identity and flees Tucson to a small southern town in Georgia, all while towing her most prized possession in a horse trailer. In Georgia, she finds a simpler existence, yet she faces more challenges than she could have ever imagined. One such challenge begins when she meets country music star, Alan Brooks.
They are instantly attracted to each other, but they’re each tethered to their hidden secrets. Everything that Mary left behind seems to haunt her, and Alan struggles to face the stark reality that he’s been living a lie. Knowing that their pasts are rapidly threatening to overtake them, can they fully embrace who they have become? Can Mary allow herself to love and be loved again? Will she ever be free of the fear of Roger?

There Comes A Season - John Kachuba

Genre - Historical Fiction

Rating - PG

4.7 (3 reviews)

Free until 12 April 2013

There are consequences of war that remain hidden, buried deep within the minds and hearts of not only the soldiers, but those who wait for them, those who may be many miles removed from the front lines. In two volumes, There Comes a Season tells the stories of some of these people, such as the jaded newspaper reporter who is shaken to his core by the massacre of Lakota Indians at Wounded Knee in 1890; or the personal photographer of Adolf Hitler, who fears for his Jewish wife in 1930’s Germany; or the young man who faces being drafted to fight in Vietnam. Here, also, is the story of the WWII infantryman who returns to Anzio, Italy only a few years after the war to find out why he didn’t die there; the African-American Vietnam vet who returns to an America that has no use for him; the New York deli-store owner who feels threatened in the wake of “9-11,” and the man who is haunted by the memory of his brother, a U.S. Marine who committed suicide in Iraq. Yet, There Comes a Season remains hopeful that, through stories such as these, we may know that war is never the answer.
