We all know Barbra, the star, but how well do we know Barbra, the woman? In the latest installment of my On the Couch series, Dr. Darcy Dale, a renowned, pioneering Manhattan psychiatrist, is confronted by Barbra, who is dismayed after thirty years of minimally successful therapy. Over the course of a year, Dr. Dale conducts an intimate psychoanalysis, breaking through Barbra’s defense mechanisms and repressions to delve deep into the heart and mind of one of America’s last remaining superstars. Published at the same time as Streisand’s own, long awaited memoir, Barbra Streisand: On the Couch is an essential companion, a sensitive, objective, pitch-perfect opportunity to look behind the voice and image, and to understand and fully appreciate Barbra Streisand, the human being.

A true story of battles, blessings, betrayal, and breakthrough

Twenty-two year old Andrew Murray has just completed his first year of ministry to over 20,000 Boers beyond the borders of the Cape. With new-found confidence, he soon finds himself acting in a statesman-like capacity on behalf of both Boer and Brit. But with every victory gained, he finds himself not only showered with accolades and blessings, but also having to battle outbreaks of self and pride that he is unable to conquer.

After a heartbreaking betrayal, he realizes that he is in need of a wife—someone who is able to partner with him in the ministry. But where to find such a girl? And when found, will his bloated ego and self-focus get in the way of winning her hand?

Although told in fictional form, this is a factual account of Andrew Murray’s life during the turbulent years of 1850 to 1856. The story is set in the wilds of Africa beyond the Orange and Vaal Rivers, then moves to England and Europe, before returning to the Cape. It is sure to appeal to lovers of Historical Fiction, South African History, and those interested in the lives of giants of the faith.

LEARN of the battles fought and lost against the Basuto chief Moshesh.

OBSERVE the brinkmanship at the Sand River Convention, where independence was granted to the Transvaal.

FOLLOW Andrew Murray to England, where he preaches at Surrey Chapel.

SAIL down the Rhine with him on his way to meet Professor Beck, who introduces him to the works of the early Christian Fathers.

ACCOMPANY him to the Herschel Estate in Cape Town, where he courts the girl of his dreams.

FEEL FOR him as his heart is broken and he realizes how miserably he has failed to progress in his spiritual walk.

REJOICE with him when his dreams come true and he learns to win through a closer walk with God.

By Deborah L. Norris
Publisher: Mill City Press

ASIN: B017JB8I1U
Genre: Biographical Fiction

Family secrets, scandals, gossip, and murder — the small town of Tilden has it all.

Set in the 1950s, The House Guest takes readers on a nostalgic journey with the townspeople of Tilden, a quaint community in Madison County, Nebraska. At the center of the story is Maggie Davis, a middle-aged widow and heiress of a grand Victorian manor. The stately home, which Maggie shares with her spunky nine-year-old daughter Jenna, also serves as a bed-and-breakfast to a once regular, but now transitory, clientele.

The kitchen table serves as the epicenter of conversation at the manor, where no topics are off limits. Maggie and guests gather to share the latest town gossip. Maggie’s outspoken, spinster neighbor delights in keeping everyone on guard with her opinionated tirades, but she is frequently reined in by an elderly, equally forthright family member who has recently become a permanent dweller at the manor.

Gentle-spirited Maggie finds herself struggling with the painful memories of her husband’s tragic death, as well as the stirrings in her heart associated with a new house guest. A scandalous scheme to swindle Maggie out of her property rides on the heels of a sudden, unexpected death, pointing to a member of the family as a suspect. Set against a backdrop of humor, tragedy and love, the story culminates with an emotional twist.

Maggie Davis is a middle-aged widow and heiress of a grand Victorian mansion built in 1910 by her grandfather in Madison County, Nebraska. The stately old manor, which she shares with her spunky nine-year-old daughter Jenna, also serves as a bed-and-breakfast inn to a once regular, but now transitory clientele. Maggie’s spinster neighbor delights in keeping everyone on guard with her opinionated tirades, but she is frequently reined in by an elderly, equally forthright house guest who has recently become a permanent dweller at the old manor.

Gentle-spirited Maggie finds herself struggling with the painful memories of her husband’s tragic death, while acknowledging the stirrings in her heart associated with a new house guest—a man of few words and quiet wisdom. On the heels of a sudden death in the community, Maggie must also contend with a scandalous scheme to swindle her out of her property, leaving more than one family member caught up in suspicion.

In The House Guest, the kitchen table is the epicenter of lively, colorful dialogue, where no subject matter is off limits. Set against a backdrop of humor, tragedy, and love, this lyrical novel culminates in a most surprising and unexpected manner.
