Description

What would you do if you realized you married your best friend’s soul mate? If your sacred work petrifies you with glimpses of tortured deaths in past lives? What becomes of your soul group if you do not keep your promise this lifetime?

A Breath Floats By is an astonishing story examining strong currents beneath the thin veneer of modern life.

Lindsay thinks she finally has reached the age when one gets away with nothing. She is terrified to begin her true life work and faces the death of her husband, Sam. She is taken underwing by someone she would rather not know, then becomes aware the woman is vying for Sam’s heart. Beyond forgivable. Through it all, Lindsay realizes her soul group needs her more than she needs them, especially Daniel.

Lindsay, Heather Laurel and Gooee are strong, genuine characters, well over forty, dealing with divorce, security, forgiveness, faith and death.
Each find that their greatest challenge is the raw honesty required to face the complexity of their love affairs.

Within a timely, gentle love story of lifetimes anew in the Great Lakes Region, a swirling spiritually-charged world is exposed.

During our era of spiritual awakening, despite belief in reincarnation, readers exploring transformation and soul-growth may never again view a coincidence in the same light.

A Breath Floats By. Where spiritual answers sometimes come with unrelenting force.

The Merry-Go-Round

Description

When 38-year-old attorney Lauren Flynn shows up in court, it’s usually to defend a client, but now she’s ending her marriage to a man whose mistakes have cost her far too much: her nest egg (paying someone else’s debts is grating), her freedom (her web-surfing, hypochondriac father is moving back in with her) and her heart (which was broken by deception and lies). Little does she know that she’ll be awarded a small piece of (swamp) land and a dilapidated merry-go-round. Although she’s momentarily delighted by the circus animals, Lauren is far too sensible to get entangled by enchantment. She quickly learns that the carousel animals are worth a mint, so she rolls up her sleeves and gets to work. Maybe while refurbishing the circus menagerie she can restore some semblance of normalcy to her existence. Or will the merry-go-round cause her to make a mistake or two of her own and teach her lessons she didn’t even know she needed to learn before bringing her right back around to where she started? One thing is certain; Lauren discovers that, when she’s willing to open her heart to love and forgiveness (of both herself and others), life never fails to offer a wild ride.

GOD: A Long Time Ago in a Galilean Far, Far Away…

Tags Requested:

Christology, God, Jesus Christ

Description

It was always prophesied within the ancient writings of the Old Testament that God would one day manifest Himself as a man. This simple and beautiful promise was finally fulfilled in a man named Jesus very early in the first century. Sadly, however, it was also foretold by the New Testament apostles that the true and full identity of Jesus Christ would be very soon attacked, altered and even denied by many (including some self-proclaimed Christians).
Using Scripture as its primary source of data and an array of insightful anecdotes, this book skillfully sets aside the modern, pre-fabricated and man-made ideas concerning Christ that have gradually infiltrated modern Christianity. It aptly presents the first, pure and original doctrine of the Lord Jesus Christ that birthed the original church. It revives the untainted truth that abundantly prevailed and flourished throughout the first century of New Testament Christianity. This book is an indispensable asset for those who are passionate lovers of truth and for those who desire a pure and clear disclosure of the full and true identity of Jesus Christ.

A Whisper to a Scream

Description

Ovulation detectors. Hormone surges. Anxiety-ridden dreams. This is the world in which Annie Jacobs is thrust when she and her husband John receive a diagnosis of unexplained infertility. A 37-year old PR executive, Annie has wanted to be a mother since she first cuddled her Baby Tenderlove at age five.

She is dreading another Christmas of relatives asking when they will be hearing the pitter patter of little feet, and Uncle Joe slapping John on the back, telling him to relax and take a cruise. Lots of people get pregnant on vacation, you know.

Across town, stay-at-home mom of two, Sarah Anderson, attempts grocery shopping with a toddler intent on hurling items from the cart at passersby. She notices a box of rice heading straight for a pink-babushkaed head. Leaping across the aisle, Sarah grabs it, saving the woman from certain doom, or at least a minor head injury. Little Alex screams at being thwarted. The unknowing octogenarian shakes her head and admonishes Sarah for not knowing how to keep her child quiet in public.

The women meet through a Classics Book Club and become beverage buddies, a book club annex of sorts, gathering at the local coffeehouse for continued conversation, each savoring her time being just herself; Annie with no Scarlet I emblazoned on her chest, Sarah with no stressed out Supermom cape in view. But how long can this oasis possibly last?

The Fly Caster Who Tried to Make Peace with the World

Tags Requested:

Fly Fishing, Spirituality, Recovery

Description

Making peace with the world, sooner or later most of us have to. But how?

For Ian Mac Bride, his way begins almost accidentally when, in 1909, he watches a fly-casting tournament in New York’s Central Park, and begins to dream of becoming a great fly caster.

But soon Ian experiences personal tragedy, and then is appalled by the unexpected slaughter of World War I.

He retreats into the world of fly fishing and fly casting, and meets unforgettable anglers like: Doc, a Civil War veteran, who tells how, after he enlisted in return for drinking money, he was unexpectedly changed by the horror of war; Izzy, a mysterious immigrant, who, in his way, teaches Ian perhaps the most important lesson of long-distance fly casting; and George M. L. La Branche who, though torn by self-doubt, writes the book that revolutionizes fly fishing.

And so, these anglers help change Ian’s hopes and values. Though his father questions his courage, Ian decides to become a teacher instead of a lawyer, and moves near the beautiful Beaverkill River, the birthplace of fly fishing in America.

But tragedy still follows him.

Torn by grief, he curses the world and loses faith in it – until, almost by accident, he finds a way to come to terms.

How? The answer will surprise you.

For this purpose it focuses specifically on the complexities of many words pertaining to the classes of the hamzated and weak verbs. In many of these cases, the hamza or weak consonant can be alleviated or retained. Other phonological particularities can also affect the words’ structures. The extensive data, the techniques of the phonological analysis and the references to the different works from the 8th century until our days, offer a thorough and accessible study of both these linguistic phenomena for both the students and researchers of Arabic.

One More Serving

Tags Requested:

Inspirational, Motivational, Christian

Description

Think your life can’t be hijacked by a defining moment?

Our lives can be dramatically altered in the blink of an eye by something or someone we never dreamed of or anticipated.

ONE MORE SERVING contains the stories of ordinary individuals whose lives became extraordinary because of those defining moments. These are your friends, neighbors, colleagues and just about anyone you do life with daily. Once you hear their stories you will never look at anyone within your slice of life quite the same way again.

ONE MORE SERVING proves that total strangers can rearrange lives and just one circumstance can change the story from the one you expected your life to tell to something you can barely believe.

We really never know when the moment that can define the rest of our lives will occur, but we seldom forget whenever it does.

Who or what will rewrite your story? Each day someone or something is rewriting another person’s story often before we even know it.

ONE MORE SERVING…because everyone has a story and some are simply meant to be told.

Men are Like Fish

Tags Requested:

dating, relationships, love

Description

Most single women have experienced the sinking feeling of fishing for a date from someone special without receiving so much as a nibble. It is enough to make women wonder if there is something wrong with their bait.

Steve Nakamoto, a former Dale Carnegie instructor, personal development trainer, and professional tour director understands these feelings. He has written an intelligent, funny, and wise book for women who are looking to catch a guy—hook, line, and sinker. In this entertaining look at relationships, he compares men to fish who are secretly longing to be caught. Women, on the other hand, are wily yet compassionate anglers looking to reel in the big one.

Men Are Like Fish will take readers on a fact-packed fishing trip where they will learn tips on how to initiate great relationships or enhance the ones they already have. The book is sweetly old-fashioned, yet wickedly on target. Nakamoto has also sprinkled zippy cartoons/illustrations and unusually helpful quotes throughout the book.
While the title might imply a single-minded effort to drag an unsuspecting man into the net, the book is actually somewhat Zenlike. It will help women to improve their self-images, broaden their interests, and accentuate the unique qualities they possess that will naturally draw good relationships to them. Nakamoto also spends a good deal of time discussing the end of relationships. He shows women how to let go gracefully, with as little pain as possible, so that they can continue to grow without harboring bitterness. He uses several examples from his own life, sharing many of his triumphs and failures with a good-natured sense of humor.

Nakamoto shares one especially funny story about a tight jeans contest where he lost a shapely girlfriend/contestant to judge Clint Eastwood. He writes, I consoled myself with the thought that Deanna must have had a tough choice:

Clint Eastwood (People Weekly s 2001 #2 most popular screen actor of all time) or Steve Nakamoto? It could have gone either way, right?

Nakamoto also shares good, solid advice. One especially helpful area is Favorite Fishing Holes: 101 Hot Spots Where the Big Ones Are Biting. It consists of a list of fun and inexpensive activities and places to explore that are bound to be interesting, even if they do not spark a new love affair. Among the many activities that Nakamoto recommends are going to art gallery openings, visiting wineries for wine tasting and tours, and taking city tours or day trips in one s own city or in a nearby town.

Nakamoto does not guarantee eternal love for readers. However, both single women looking for that perfect catch and those seeking to recapture the romance of an exciting relationship will find great value here. Men Are Like Fish is guaranteed to give even the most jaded and discouraged romantic angler a new, more joyful perspective on the oldest sport in the world.

Starfire Angels

Description

They’ve been coming here for thousands of years, using Earth as a sanctuary to escape threats from their own kind. Mankind knows them as angels, and one of them left a child upon her death to be raised as a human.

Raea is now a high school senior and her life as a human is about to end. The crystal shard she bears is not a pretty pendant; it’s a collective of powerful entities who chose her as their Keeper, a protector of one of the four shards that power a machine capable of destroying whole worlds. Those who desire the Starfire’s power have sent an agent to find her, but she’s too busy evading a nosy reporter ready to exploit her secret and dating a hot new foreign student to notice. Nevermind learning what she really is.

Only one person on Earth can help her, the last person she ever expected. But he’s not from Earth. Life as a human would be so much easier.

The Quickening

Tags Requested:

Women, Historical Fiction, Farm Life

Description

In the upper Midwest of the early 1900s, two women struggle to make a living on neighboring farms. For one, their hardscrabble life comes easily, while the other longs for the excitement of the city. Though they depend on one another for survival and companionship, their friendship proves as rugged as the land they farm. While the Great Depression looms, the delicate balance of their relationship tips, pitting neighbor against neighbor, and exposing the dark secrets they hide.

In The Quickening, Michelle Hoover explores the polarization of the human soul in times of hardship and the instinctual drive for self-preservation by whatever needs necessary. A novel of lyrical precision and historical consequence, this debut reflects the resilience and sacrifices required even now in our modern troubled times.

More Health Less Care

Tags Requested:

Health, Wellness, Healthy living

Description

“More Health, Less Care,” outlines a practical philosophy of personal health and enables readers to develop and act on an individual plan for healthy living. Through the metaphor of “be your own doctor,” it explains fundamental principles of change that can be applied for a lifetime instead of the latest fad diet or exercise program. The easily understood stories and disarming, open style invite readers to accept the message and inspire them to make meaningful changes.

Other health books typically provide formulas for healthy living in a “one size fits all” approach, ignoring individual variation and the great difficulty of actually implementing major lifestyle changes. By engaging the reader farther upstream in the change process, “More Health, Less Care” complements other health and wellness works.

Love is Eternal

Description

WAR, LOVE & FAITH These three things have changed the course of history for thousands of years. They can dramatically change the life of a single individual or of millions of people in many nations.
WAR is a devastating event that most individuals have little or no control over, but whose lives are seriously impacted by it.
LOVE and FAITH can have a powerful effect on individuals, who very often can not explain or understand them. They can’t see or touch them but they know they are real and that they can bring great joy or pain. People sometimes have doubts that they are real as they struggle to understand them. This story concerns all three of these things and how they changed the life of one man and the people he loved.

  3. Todd, I was looking through your May listings and I found my book, Catherine and the Captain. You put the beginning of my description at the end of the following book. This should be at the beginning of my description.

    Also, you didn’t include my website.
