What happens when you get the life you aim for and it hurts like hell?

The Johns family is unraveling. Hollis, a retired Ohio banker, isolates himself in esoteric hobbies and a dangerous flirtation with a colleague’s daughter. Susan, his wife of forty years, risks everything for a second chance at who she might have become. David, their eldest, thrashes to stay afloat as his teaching career capsizes in a storm of accusations involving a missing student and the legacy of Christopher Columbus. And young Tilly, the black sheep, having traded literary promise for an improbable career as a Hollywood starlet, struggles to define herself amid salacious scandal, the demands of a powerful director, and the judgments of an uncompromising writer.

By turns comical and poignant, the Johns family is tumbling toward the discovery that sometimes you have to let go of your identity to find out who you are.

Adventure Thriller – The Ice Cap and the Rift

The Ice CAp and the RiftThe Ice Cap and the Rift
By Marshall Chamberlain
The Ancestor Series of Adventure-thrillers, Book 2
Publisher: The Grace Publishing Group
Published: October 2014
ISBN: 978-1500511999
ASIN: B001EJODF4
Genre: Adventure Thriller
Formats Available For Review: pdf, epub, mobi

A Comboquake rakes across the submerged twenty-five hundred mile ribbon of the Atlantic Ridge, threatening disaster on three continents. At the north end of the Ridge, a fifteen-mile long rift tears into Iceland’s largest ice cap, spewing a curtain of steam five hundred feet in the air. Advanced satellite imagery reveals the dissection of a large cavern eleven hundred feet down the ragged crevasse, containing objects and structures frozen in the ice that shouldn’t be there.

The UN’s Institute for the Study of Unusual Phenomena (ISUP) and its new director, John Henry Morgan, geologist, ex-marine, are cast into the aftermath of the largest single shift ever recorded in the Earth’s crust and the strange anomalies left in its wake.

When it’s discovered the cavern was occupied 180,000 years ago and contains a perfectly preserved hi-tech habitat and a travel machine, ISUP’s benign scientific expedition to study the origin and contents of the cavern turns chaotic.

Ferreting out the existence and significance of the discoveries, nations and terrorists mount sophisticated operations to acquire technological treasures for their own purposes.

The ISUP organization finds itself at the convergence of clandestine assault from several fronts. Acts of deceit and violence cascade into escalating brutality. Lives are expendable, a scenario that has plagued the human race throughout the chronicles of time.

Frantic action streams across the globe, crossing oceans and air lanes: Prague; London; New York; Washington, D.C.; Libya; France; Spain; Iceland; China.

As factions grapple for power, survival of the ISUP scientists lies in their choices of whom to trust, how to utilize mysterious new technologies, and whether to seek assistance from an esoteric source claiming domicile in the Pleiades, a star cluster of the Taurus constellation.

Spirituality/Metaphysical – Light in the Night: Spirit Photography at The Cottage

Light in the NightLight in the Night
Spirit Photography at The Cottage
By Lois Anne Smith
Publisher: Balboa Press
Published: July 2014
ISBN: 978-1452517322
Genre: Spirituality, Metaphysical
Format available for review: pdf

Light in the Night contains stunning photographic evidence of the light-filled beings that medium Lois Anne Smith says have always been with her. The pictures were taken in the gardens surrounding her small healing center located in the quiet community of Valley Mede, Maryland.

It never occurred to her to share them in book form until the summer of 2013 when, standing in the middle of the garden, she asked out loud, “Where is everyone?” She had enjoyed three years of capturing extraordinary evidence that she was surrounded by light and love, even in-especially in-the darkness. The past six months of barely seeing a small orb felt as though someone had flipped a switch, and it was over. The answer came immediately, “My dear, you haven’t done anything with the ones we’ve given you.”

She now makes these amazing photos available to us all, along with deeply personal stories that are sure to lift your spirit and remind us all that when the journey is about love and the entire universe supports and encourages us.

Memoir – Paths Less Travelled of a Scholar Warrior (Spy) Teacher Healer

Paths Less Travelled of a Scholar Warrior (Spy) Teacher HealerPaths Less Travelled of a Scholar Warrior (Spy) Teacher Healer
By Hon K. Lee
Published: July 2014
ISBN: 978-1494756253
ASIN: B00MFTNL9G
Genre: Memoir
Formats Available For Review: pdf

A personal memoir by Hon K. Lee describing his adventures: growing up in New York’s Chinatown; being a combat Marine; running CIA clandestine operations; teaching Chinese martial arts; and treating patients with Chinese medicine and acupuncture.

His story begins with Lee as a scrawny runt in a Chinese immigrant family. He gets bullied so often he yearns to be like the kung fu heroes he sees in the movies. He becomes a Marine to prove himself, but the horrors of war make him wonder what it would take to achieve peace. He joins the CIA’s clandestine service, only to see his career threatened in an ordeal that makes him reevaluate his life purpose, leading him to chase his dream to study Chinese medicine. Along the way, he apprentices with top martial arts masters, and opens a school to pass on what he’s learned.

In this straightforward, often humorous memoir Lee narrates his adventures from the streets of Chinatown to the battlefields of Vietnam, and from the corridors of CIA headquarters to the acupuncture clinics of Shanghai.

While his journey seems to take divergence paths, those familiar with stories about the knights of ancient China will recognize he’s traveling a singular path – a four-fold one of Scholar Warrior Teacher Healer, with Spy thrown in.

When 38-year old Trudie Parks learns that her high school drama teacher is seriously ill, she immediately contacts her two best friends in high school, Kristen and Mary Ann. Together, they’d been known as “The Christmas Girls.” They’d produced and starred in the annual high school Christmas show, which their teacher, Mrs. Childs, had directed.

Determined to show their love for Mrs. Childs, they plan a 20-year reunion to recreate the Christmas show for her. What they don’t anticipate is the complicated emotions this provokes, as former sweethearts appear and rekindle romance, painful memories and the sting of unrealized dreams. All three women must reassess their lives and their friendships, while struggling to produce the show, even while Mrs. Childs seems to grow weaker by the day.

As Christmas Eve approaches, The Christmas Women prepare for an event that will take them and the audience to the farthest reaches of the human heart and resonate throughout the rest of their lives.
