Historical Coming of Age – Ghost Dancer

Ghost Dancer
By Alan S. Kessler
Release Date: July 2021
ISBN: 978-1-938394-59-1
Genre: Historical Novel, Coming of Age
Formats Available For Review: Print (limited quantities), pdf

Ghost Dancer is an historical novel interweaving mystical elements in a coming-of-age story. It is an eclectic tale with an intriguing outsider; a protagonist grappling with her identity who, though once a sorrowful girl, becomes a young woman able to fight prejudices and overcome self-doubt. There is also a serious subplot, racial hatred in a 1950’s small Midwestern town as its white citizens try to prevent Native Americans from fishing, as guaranteed by treaty, in an ancestral lake.

Age nine, Eleanor Wilson, lives trapped in a marble mansion. Sneaking out, she visits the grave houses in an Indian cemetery, bringing with her the faceless doll she made from wood, a corn husk, and corn silk. Here, among these small buildings, low to the ground, with moon or star shaped openings in the front where relatives of the dead place food and medicine offerings, she plays tag with make-believe cousins then rests on the stone lap of an imaginary aunt who calls her pretty.

Eleanor doesn’t like looking in the mirror. At school a boy calls her fart-face because of her freckles, her mother bleaches her hair. That night, in her frilly pink bedroom, Eleanor hears the doll her mother took from her and burned.

“Cry for your mother.”

Afraid of the voice as a child, in 1958, hearing it again, she searches for its meaning, her journey of discovery taking her to the watery grave of a boy and the bones of a young girl. Lonely, insecure, controlled by the rigid rules of her bigoted parents, Eleanor falls in love with a Native American and then a beautiful Sikh woman, both relationships violating societal taboos.

Her mother cries, but not because of this.

After entering the world of Ghost Dance spirits, Eleanor discovers the secret about herself and how to save our dying world.

Historical Political Fiction with Romance – Into the Streets: An Antiwar Love

Into the Streets: An Antiwar Love
By Charles S. Isaacs
Publisher: Black Rose Writing
ISBN: 978-1684335824
ASIN: B08MQKHK8M
Genre: Historical Romance, Coming of Age, Political Thriller, New Adult Romance
Formats Available For Review: pdf, mobi, epub

It’s the late 1960s. The Vietnam War, the Antiwar Movement and the Black Power Movement are rushing toward their explosive peaks. In the midst of this charged environment, an inter-racial pair of young activists fall madly in love. Awaiting them are excitement, danger, heartache and redemption.

“Into the Streets: An Antiwar Love Story” chronicles these lovers’ challenging journey, their coming of age amidst an unpopular war; a racially polarized Chicago; a hostile mayor and ever-mounting threats, all while working through their own deep psychological issues. 1968 is marked by campus unrest, urban rebellions and assassinations, as well as political violence that thrusts the duo into clashes with the police and the National Guard. The suspense builds breathlessly to a heartrending climax during the street protests surrounding that summer’s Democratic National Convention.

Literary Coming of Age – Roya

RoyaRoya
By Elnaz Moghangard
Published: Janaury 2020
ISBN: 978-1657151741
ASIN: B083ZTVGS7
Genre: Literary Fiction, Coming of Age
Formats Available For Review: Print (limited quantities, only available to qualified reviewers / bloggers in the U.S.), and kindle

“Put your past in a casket, and its ghost will show up at your door. Burn it on a pyre, and its ashes will get in your eyes. But, if you entertain them from time-to-time, you realize they are no longer anything but the residual imaginings of the human mind.”

Roya tells the story of a 22-year-old Iranian-American woman confronting the shadows of her past in search of lion-hearted strength. Pressured to trade her dream of becoming a composer for medical school, she is at odds with her immigrant parents. A heartbreak over her first love has left her further feeling like an expat in her own body.

Upon her grandmother’s request, she embarks on a reluctant journey to Iran. There, she finds a country with its own torn identity –one caught between tradition and modernity. A quiet, yet pressing craving for freedom exists mirroring Roya’s own inner battle.

With the help of some unlikely friends, she finds truth in the unraveling of family secrets and a new dawn for dreams.

Hardcover Synopsis: An old enemy has returned. Dormant for only two decades, the rising sun stormed the beaches and the wide avenues to avenge their defeat. Just a boy and his dog; he a nearly obsolete model, her a pure breed. Left to fend for themselves during the invasion, JoJo, as his family affectionately called him, must wrestle with his metal construction, his childish memories, and the fact that he will never become human. His father’s own experiences in the Last Great War, painful and victorious, have bred fear, doubt, and distrust in them all.

But the world has been far from kind, the survivors hoarding their resources, firing blindly into the atomic remains of what they had proudly cultivated. Lost now in a world he thought he knew, his family’s shadows fading quickly, there is much to learn about the hierarchy of man and where a small android and his loyal best friend fit in.

Duty Doesn’t Always Follow the Rules
Gray Girl, Book 2
By Susan I. Spieth
ISBN: 978-1500929770

Genre: Military fiction, coming of age, women’s action/adventure
Formats Available For Review: Print (limited quantities, only available to qualified reviewers, bloggers in the USA), pdf, mobi, kindle

One drives off a cliff. An alarming number of others resign. Something at the military academy is causing the unusually high attrition of women cadets. Jan Wishart aims to find out before she’s the next statistic at West Point. Her second year at the formerly all male citadel should be the fun year. But when one friend shows signs of abuse and another friend suddenly resigns, Jan’s coming of age year becomes anything but enjoyable. The culture of hazing and harassment must be addressed, but it’s almost impossible to get results through the chain of command. In a closed academy environment, sometimes the best way to call attention to an issue is to leak it the press.

In order to fulfill her duty, Jan must break with tradition and the longstanding culture of the United States Military Academy. Yet not everything is as it seems. Once again Jan’s worldview is about to be upended by the secrets of West Point.

2015 KINDLE BOOK AWARD semi-finalist!
