DESCRIPTION:

The year is 1640, and Louis XIII is on the French throne. However, as far as you’re concerned, this is all pretty meaningless. After all, as a teenage orphan living in a monastery school in Reims, all you have to worry about is dodging the unpleasant advances of a few unsavoury monks and looking forward to a life of penniless and celibate servitude in a religious order.

After a childhood and adolescence plagued by a constant longing to know who he really is, orphan Pierre has not the slightest idea that his questions are about to be answered. But you know what they say – be careful what you wish for…

Suddenly finding out who you are can bring with it not only happiness and fortune, but danger, friendship and the sort of swift education that the monastery could never have provided! The discovery of who Pierre really is affects not only Pierre and his friends, but has ramifications for the French nobility, the English crown, and most dangerous of all, the machinations of Cardinal Richelieu and his fierce ambition for the Church and for himself.

……And if all that excitement isn’t enough, the adventures continue in a sequel – The Secrets of Montrésor –

DESCRIPTION:

Parenting is challenging in the best of circumstances. Adopted and foster children with early childhood trauma require a level of parenting that often feels impossible to attain. A diagnosis of Reactive Attachment Disorder may feel like there is no hope. At times your child may seem unlovable, unteachable and unreachable. And creating a family with these damaged children so often feels like it will never happen.

This book isn’t designed to have all the answers to making a perfect family with your RAD child. It is one mom’s journey with her son and trying to learn, love and heal both her child and her family. Through her story you will gain insights into:

— How to navigate through getting your RAD child the educational environment they need to be successful.
— How to deal with therapists who may not have even heard of reactive attachment disorder and be a champion for your child.
— And while it hopefully won’t ever be necessary, how to work with law enforcement, attorneys, judges and the rest of the criminal justice system.

Shannon Giles gives you a first-hand account of her life with a child with Reactive Attachment Disorder. To let other parents know they are not alone in the struggles and how she has advocated for her child for over 20 years. You will see clearly how it feels to love a child with RAD and why even at the worst moments, a parent never stops fighting for their child.

DESCRIPTION:

The law is the law until someone comes after your family.

From New York Times & USA Today bestselling author Lorhainne Eckhart comes a new Billy Jo McCabe mystery set on a small island town in the Pacific Northwest. On the eve of Police Chief Mark Friessen’s wedding, a fierce snowstorm blankets the island, knocking out power, and the body of a woman is discovered in the church. The only clue is the note in her hand, a list of names—all members of Mark’s family.

Mark Friessen has been counting down the days to his wedding to Billy Jo McCabe. Yet only days from Christmas, after their families arrive, a freak blizzard comes out of nowhere and knocks out power on the entire island.

With the island in an emergency and the ferry shut down, no help is arriving anytime soon from the mainland. Mark receives a call to stop into the church where he and Billy Jo are planning on being married the next day, but there he stumbles upon the body of a woman. The only evidence is a note she’s clutching. At the top, in all bold, is the word KILL, and listed below are the names of everyone he loves, including Billy Jo, his parents, his brothers, their wives, and his two nieces.

With access to the outside world cut off, Mark finds himself up against an invisible enemy who he believes is coming after his unsuspecting family. But Mark has no idea who it is. Where is the killer hiding on the island, why isn’t Mark’s name on the list, and who is the dead woman? Mark is determined to find the killer and protect his family, whatever it takes…even if it’s his Last Stand.

DESCRIPTION:

“McVeigh’s plotting and prose are pitch-perfect” (Publishers Weekly)

Harriet is an intriguing and original ‘take’ on Jane Austen’s immortal Emma, by Publishers Weekly’s 2021 BookLife Prize quarterfinalist, Alice McVeigh.

Emma, a privileged young heiress, decides to mentor Harriet Smith, a pretty boarding-school pupil, and to matchmake her as eligibly as she can… But how is she to guess that Harriet has a secret?

Meanwhile, the brilliant, penniless Jane Fairfax consents to a clandestine engagement with Frank Churchill – though not daring to confess, even to him, that she is being relentlessly pursued by her best friend’s husband.

Harriet sidelines Emma herself in favour of the ingenious Harriet and the fascinating Jane Fairfax. It is Emma – but an Emma with a surprisingly believable twist in its tail.

“A dynamic take on a revered classic. This is still Austen’s Emma—but the story that unfolds through the recollections of these two ‘side’ characters feels remarkably fresh… With or without an understanding of Emma, Harriet contains a fully formed narrative that should satisfy even the choosiest Austen fans… Readers will rarely find the words ‘page-turner’ and ‘Jane Austen’ in the same sentence, but McVeigh’s impeccably written Harriet certainly fits the bill.” (IndieReader editorial review)

“A highly engrossing novel that captures the spirit of Austen and celebrates all the best qualities of her work from new and innovative angles… The characters are vibrant and full of life – McVeigh hits the mark spot-on.” (Readers Favorite editorial review)

“An enchanting recreation of Austen’s world” (author James Conroyd Martin)
