Book Excerpt :

Secrets and lies… Rickie Taylor has just learned a devastating secret about her family's wealth. It's tainted because of what her grandfather did. Not only that, he may still be alive—and in hiding. Jordan Browning, ex-Navy SEAL, is keeping a secret about his own past—and living a lie. He's not the minister he pretends to be. When Rickie learns that "Reverend" Browning's work sometimes takes him into the Paraguayan Chaco—the very place her grandfather is said to be—she asks him to search for the old man. But she can't tell Jordan who he really is or why she wants him found. Falling in love is a complication neither Jordan nor Rickie can afford. Yet it happens. And it changes both of them. For the first time, the future means more than the past….

Book Short Summary:

The long-awaited finale to Marie’s beloved Treading Water Series is HERE at last! Maggie Harrington is in way, way over her head, running Matthews House, the shelter her famous sister Kate and brother-in-law Reid have opened, using Reid’s family estate to provide support to women and children in crisis. This job is just what Maggie needed after a disastrous episode in New York—or so she thought. The constant life-or-death challenges she encounters have her emotions on a rollercoaster of soaring highs and crushing lows. Living near her sisters Kate and Jill and regular rides on Kate’s beloved horse, Thunder, are the best parts of her new life. When Maggie hires Brayden Thomas to run an equine therapy program for the resident children, she does so knowing he’s hiding something from his past. But his sterling professional reputation and qualifications have her taking a chance on the handsome horse whisperer, who quickly becomes a friend and confidant. It doesn’t hurt that he’s also smoking hot, funny, easy to talk to and damned good at his job. It’s her first time being “the boss.” Surely she ought to maintain some semblance of professionalism when it comes to Brayden, right? But day by day, hour by hour, he makes himself essential to her and has her teetering on the fine line between personal and professional as her feelings for him intensify. The Harrington girls are together again in Nashville! Come along for a visit that’ll include the arrival of Kate’s baby, Jill’s wedding to Ashton and Eric Harrington’s high school graduation. Jack, Andi, Clare, Aidan, Jamie, Frannie and the O’Malley family also appear in the Treading Water Series finale!

Book Short Summary:

Ten years ago this month, I wrote THE END for the first time in TREADING WATER. At that time, I never could’ve imagined the amazing journey I was about to embark upon and how it would change my life, my family’s life and the lives of many of my friends and family who now work with me. But on that afternoon of May 18, 2005, all I could focus on was the singular feeling that comes with actually finishing a book for the first time. There are no words to describe the thrill, the sense of accomplishment and the fear of what comes next. I remember those feelings as if they were yesterday rather than ten long years ago. Forty-one books later, I still get a thrill out of writing THE END, but nothing will ever compare to finishing TREADING WATER. To celebrate the tenth anniversary of that amazing day, I’m thrilled to bring you the Treading Water Series Box Set, available for the first time on May 18, 2015. Thank you to all the readers who’ve made the dream that began on that long ago day come true in every possible way. I hope you enjoy this box set! xoxo Marie

Book Short Summary:

Her life was torn down to the foundation. Rebuilding will take one small miracle at a time. “Marking Time” continues the story begun in “Treading Water” as Clare Harrington begins a new life. She’s considered a miracle, but everything that’s happened since she recovered from a three-year coma has been something less than miraculous. Now left to grapple with the aftermath of a selfless decision, she is home from the hospital and trying to figure out what the next chapter in her miraculous recovery has in store for her. Meanwhile, her eighteen-year-old daughter Kate, a talented singer and songwriter, sets out to pursue her musical dreams in Nashville. Her parents have agreed to allow Kate to spend a year there, but they couldn't have anticipated Kate falling in love with a much older man. Her newly divorced parents are forced back together to confront their wayward daughter. Spanning from Newport, Rhode Island, to Nashville, Tennessee, to Stowe, Vermont, "Marking Time" is the story of new beginnings and new loves. Of "Treading Water," reviewers said: "Treading Water is a definite must read! Treading Water creates an emotional firestorm within the reader. It shines the light on the good and the bad in life and proves that one moment can change everything and it’s never too late to find love. Marie Force grabbed my heart and squeezed every ounce of emotion out of it but most importantly her monumental story left me blissful. Treading Water may be fiction but it gives me hope; hope in everyday people and happily ever after. I cannot wait for the next book in this trilogy, Marking Time." —Joyfully Reviewed, a "Recommended Read" for November! "This isn't your typical romance where you're positive you're going to get the happy ending you were hoping for at the beginning. It will rip your heart out at times and having you weeping for joy at others. A stunning story about learning to love again and learning when to let go to those you love." —Night Owl Reviews, Reviewer Top Pick The Treading Water Series Book 1: Treading Water (Jack & Andi) Book 2: Marking Time (Clare & Aidan) Book 3: Starting Over (Brandon & Daphne) Book 4: Coming Home (Reid & Kate) Book 5: Finding Forever (Maggie & Brayden)

Book Short Summary:

Until I Find You is the story of the actor Jack Burns – his life, loves, celebrity and astonishing search for the truth about his parents. When he is four years old, Jack travels with his mother Alice, a tattoo artist, to several North Sea ports in search of his father, William Burns. From Copenhagen to Amsterdam, William, a brilliant church organist and profligate womanizer, is always a step ahead – has always just departed in a wave of scandal, with a new tattoo somewhere on his body from a local master or “scratcher.” Alice and Jack abandon their quest, and Jack is educated at schools in Canada and New England – including, tellingly, a girls’ school in Toronto. His real education consists of his relationships with older women – from Emma Oastler, who initiates him into erotic life, to the girls of St. Hilda’s, with whom he first appears on stage, to the abusive Mrs. Machado, whom he first meets when sent to learn wrestling at a local gym. Too much happens in this expansive, eventful novel to possibly summarize it all. Emma and Jack move to Los Angeles, where Emma becomes a successful novelist and Jack a promising actor. A host of eccentric minor characters memorably come and go, including Jack’s hilariously confused teacher the Wurtz; Michelle Maher, the girlfriend he will never forget; and a precocious child Jack finds in the back of an Audi in a restaurant parking lot. We learn about tattoo addiction and movie cross-dressing, “sleeping in the needles” and the cure for cauliflower ears. And John Irving renders his protagonist’s unusual rise through Hollywood with the same vivid detail and range of emotions he gives to the organ music Jack hears as a child in European churches. This is an absorbing and moving book about obsession and loss, truth and storytelling, the signs we carry on us and inside us, the traces we can’t get rid of. Jack has always lived in the shadow of his absent father. But as he grows older – and when his mother dies – he starts to doubt the portrait of his father’s character she painted for him when he was a child. This is the cue for a second journey around Europe in search of his father, from Edinburgh to Switzerland, towards a conclusion of great emotional force. A melancholy tale of deception, Until I Find You is also a swaggering comic novel, a giant tapestry of life’s hopes. It is a masterpiece to compare with John Irving’s great novels, and restates the author’s claim to be considered the most glorious, comic, moving novelist at work today.

Book Short Summary:

-Most books are written in chapters, so that the reader can understand where one event ends and another begins, this book is written in hour's. As a child Prince Ami was diagnosed with maniac depression, which today we know as Bipolar Disorder. In a given year, bipolar disorder affects about 5.7 million American adults, or about 2.6% of the U.S. population 18 and older, according to the National Institute of Mental Health. Within the course of 31 hour's you'll experience love, anger, joy and pain. Prince Ami's way with words, and vivid story telling will give you insight into the most precious, and unique physical attribute of mankind "The Human Mind". Inside you'll find the story of "The Guy On The Corner”, a metaphorical tale about a guy who's battling with thoughts of good verses evil within his own mind. Think of the depiction of the angel and devil, on either shoulder of the young man that you'd see on cartoon sketches, which gives a vivid depiction about good versus evil. "The Guy On The Corner" is at war with his own thoughts, just as everyone else. Everyday we all have to face a decision of choosing between whats right and what's wrong, and for some making the best choice is easier said than done. People from all walks of life, people that we encounter each and every everyday, are suffering from Bipolar Disorder. People who look normal as Me & You, but deep down inside lies something deeper than what our eyes can see. Although they may be smiling, they could very well be sad, and only smiling to keep from crying. Or as 2Pac raps in the song Keep Your Head Up, "Im dying on the inside, but outside I'm looking fearless.” There are alot of people in the world facing these issues, which are only complex because of our fear to talk about them, because we don't want to be looked at differently. As a people we tend to talk about one another's problems more than actually trying to help, and understand the problems of our fellow neighbors, co-workers, and associates. Writing “And Then There Was You” is intended to show people that despite our differences, we are all the same, and the only way we'll be able to truly overcome our problems, is by first acknowledging them, and working towards a solution to fix it. By the time you've made it to the final hour, you will have walked inside the vessels of the Author's heart, and dived deep within the thoughts of his mind, without further ado I bring to you, And Then There Was You!

Book Short Summary:

A demanding feminist, devout Christian, and savvy grassroots civil rights organizer, Anna Arnold Hedgeman played a key role in over half a century of social justice initiatives. Like many of her colleagues, including A. Philip Randolph, Betty Friedan, and Martin Luther King, Jr., Hedgeman ought to be a household name, but until now has received only a fraction of the attention she deserves. In Until There Is Justice, author Jennifer Scanlon presents the first-ever biography of Hedgeman. Through a commitment to faith-based activism, civil rights, and feminism, Hedgeman participated in and led some of the 20th century's most important developments, including advances in education, public health, politics, and workplace justice. Simultaneously a dignified woman and scrappy freedom fighter, Hedgeman's life upends conventional understandings of many aspects of the civil rights and feminist movements. She worked as a teacher, lobbyist, politician, social worker, and activist, often crafting and implementing policy behind the scenes. Although she repeatedly found herself a woman among men, a black American among whites, and a secular Christian among clergy, she maintained her conflicting identities and worked alongside others to forge a common humanity. From helping black and Puerto Rican Americans achieve critical civil service employment in New York City during the Great Depression to orchestrating white religious Americans' participation in the 1963 March on Washington, Hedgeman's contributions transcend gender, racial, and religious boundaries. Engaging and profoundly inspiring, Scanlon's biography paints a compelling portrait of one of the most remarkable yet understudied civil rights leaders of our time. Until There Is Justice is a must-read for anyone with a passion for history, biography, and civil rights.

Book Short Summary:

“Wordsworth, Whitman, William Carlos Williams, and the Beats in their respective generations moved poetry toward a more natural language. Bukowski moved it a little farther.” –Los Angeles Times Book Review In what is widely hailed as the best of his many novels, Charles Bukowski details the long, lonely years of his own hardscrabble youth in the raw voice of alter ego Henry Chinaski. From a harrowingly cheerless childhood in Germany through acne-riddled high school years and his adolescent discoveries of alcohol, woman, and the Los Angeles Public Library's collection of D.H. Lawrence, Ham on Rye offers a crude, brutal, and savagely funny portrait of an outcast's coming-of-age during the desperate days of the Great Depression.

Book Short Summary:

Wide-ranging and engaging, Selves in Question considers the various ways in which auto/biographical accounts situate and question the self in contemporary southern Africa.The twenty-seven interviews presented here consider both the ontological status and the representation of the self. They remind us that the self is constantly under construction in webs of interlocution and that its status and representation are always in question. The contributors, therefore, look at ways in which auto/biographical practices contribute to placing, understanding, and troubling the self and selves in postcolonies in the current global constellation. They examine topics such as the contexts conducive to production processes; the contents and forms of auto/biographical accounts; and finally, their impact on the producers and the audience. In doing so they map out a multitude of variables--including the specific historical juncture, geo-political locations, social positions, cultures, languages, generations, and genders--in their relations to auto/biographical practices.

Book Short Summary:

For a bored, young princess of Xanth, there's nothing more exciting than a Quest. Especially when all you do is sit around Castle Roogna. But when Ivy uses the Heaven Cent, it takes her not to the top of Mount Rushmost, where the winged monsters gather, not to the sea where the merfolk swim--but to Mundania, a world much like out own (that is, boring). It is here that she meets a young college student so dull that he doesn't even believe in magic, or princesses, or Xanth! Does he have a lot to learn. Man from Mundania, the thrilling climax to the trilogy started in Vale of the Vole and continued in Heaven Cent.

Book Short Summary:

It is 1977, and the newly formed House Select Committee on Assassinations is making headlines. Tom Welles, a successful Pulitzer Prize winning syndicated columnist receives an anonymous letter from an individual alleging firsthand knowledge of the assassination of President Kennedy, with a time and place to meet. Welles is skeptical of the offer, and is prepared to dismiss it as exploitation, but there is a hook; the letter challenges him to follow the trail of a heretofore-unknown Intelligence organization. Out of his league, Welles reaches out to a colleague with the appropriate contacts in Washington. However, in tapping his sources, he unwittingly draws the attention of a renegade Intelligence group operating within the highest level of government. Abruptly drawn into the epicenter of a complex web extending beyond the Kennedy assassination, Welles soon learns of a daring CIA penetration operation into the Soviet Union, meets the agent charged with ousting the rogue element from the Agency hierarchy, and encounters the men desperate to keep hidden the Cold Wars darkest secret. Ultimately, Welles finds himself in a race against an unseen enemy to locate the one man with the first-hand knowledge capable of toppling this powerful cabal. Based on more than twenty years of research, and supported by thousands of declassified files, Dead Reckoning is an inventive thriller that dares the reader to consider the antagonisms of United States/Soviet Cold War diplomacy as a mutually beneficial play act between the architects of the military industrial complex on both sides of the Iron Curtain.
