Fire of the Word

by Pratt Bradley, Carol

Young English noblewoman, Anne Ayscough, lived during the turbulent times of Henry VIII, when Protestant reformist ideas clashed violently against entrenched Catholicism.Yet many, especially the wealthy, owned William Tyndale’s New Testament, including the household of Sir William Ayscough in Lincolnshire. In her family home, Anne grew in an atmosphere of openness, gleaning new ideas from her brothers who were educated at Cambridge, a hotbed of Protestant ideals.At the age of fifteen, Anne’s life changed drastically. Her older sister Martha, betrothed to a son of a family staunch in the Catholic faith, contracted a fever and died. With the financial arrangements for the marriage already in place, Anne’s father ordered her to stand for her dead sister, forcing his daughter to enter a loveless marriage.England’s religious war became Anne’s as she clung tight to her own ideals in her husband’s house. This eventually brought her into the center of the vicious political and religious battles where she was faced with a choice.Anne could deny the truths she had embraced as a young woman and live, or hold fast to her beliefs and be put to death.

The Good Will Son

by David S Libbey

The Good Will Son is a memoir by the son of two orphans from the Good Will Home in Hinckley, Maine. David’s father, deeply affected by his experience as a Marine in WWII, was excessively passive and introspective. His mother – molested as a child by her alcoholic father – found religion and carried her faith to extremes. David moved from a life with a religious fanatic to hell as an Army enlisted man in Vietnam. When he returned from war, he returned to an ungrateful nation. He found comfort among the hospitable people of the South while attending college in Memphis. After college, he joined the Marine Corps and became a helicopter pilot – eventually flying President Reagan in Marine One and commanding a helicopter training squadron. This memoir contains forty-four stories that cover David Libbey’s life from his early days living in a barn with sheep and chickens to his later years flying the President of the United States and beyond. These stories touch on some tragic events and loss of friends that occurred while he was in the Army and Marine Corps. They also tell of friends, loved ones, and interesting relatives who changed the course of David’s life. The Good Will Son is a mosaic of adventure, love, loss, heartbreak and recovery with a humorous ending.

Marcus Aurelius: A Life From Beginning to End

by Hourly History

Marcus Aurelius* * *Download for FREE on Kindle Unlimited + Free BONUS Inside!* * *Read On Your Computer, MAC, Smartphone, Kindle Reader, iPad, or Tablet.Have you ever heard of Marcus Aurelius? It wouldn’t come as much of a surprise if you haven’t. While names like Nero, Caligula, Hadrian, and Constantine grab all the attention with their exploits, Marcus Aurelius tends to sit more in the historical background of the Roman Empire. In many ways, he is a lesser known emperor even though his written works have stood the test of time. Marcus, a prolific writer and formidable scholar, was perhaps the first to fulfill Plato’s dream of the philosopher king.Inside you will read about...✓ Rise to Prominence✓ Marriage of Convenience✓ Losing His Twin Boys✓ The Defeat of Parthia✓ The Danger from WithinAnd much more!Marcus Aurelius reigned over the Roman Empire for almost two decades—from 161 CE until 180 CE—and during that span, he took the time to look back at his own life in the legendary Meditations. Penned in his own words in a mainly diary-styled format, this book was never meant for publication but was discovered several years after the emperor’s death. It was this book that ignited an interest in this otherwise unsung emperor, and that interest lasts to this very day.

Sea Beast (True Tales of the Supernatural Kind Book 3)

by Riley Truehart

The forecast was gloomy, a stormy Sunday, the kind you should stay in bed for, read a book, cuddle and so on. The seas were riotous, and so I moderately objected to what seemed like a somewhat risky undertaking. But the intrepid skipper reckoned we had a stellar morning of shark breaching ahead of us. I took his word. We left for the open ocean at dusk, heading towards Shark Alley. Six humans on a tiny boat out to find the impressive Great White Shark. Darkness began to evaporate, but the sun was nowhere to be seen. Despite dense clouds, the increasing lightness brought on by daybreak revealed just how rough the ocean really was. Colossal waves assembled and then subsided before they could break. The sea took deep raging breaths followed by violent exhales. Halfway to Shark Alley, we threw out the decoy, hoping to entice the esteemed predator with the promise of fresh meat, all of us wishing we could get the damn shots and go back to shore. Nothing. Not even the tremendous ocean beings were up for the weather, either that or they knew it was a hoax. The skipper reckoned we should go in deeper to where the sea was even more belligerent. So we did...

Flesh Wounds of the Mind

by Lillian J Barnes

The Day of Blood! The blood! All the blood! That’s what always enters my mind first. It’s that time when you’re not quite awake, yet not asleep. Your brain is trying to snap you out of sleep and bring you back to reality—the reality that another day has dawned. It’s no longer yesterday; it’s tomorrow. You’re no longer a part of yesterday, but your yesterdays are always there—always with you. And as for tomorrow—well, tomorrow never really comes either. It’s all relative. But that’s what seizes you and twists you and hurts you the most, it was a relative. But not just any relative—it was my mother! It was not a crime of passion, but of cold calculated planning. Yes, planning to destroy the one that loved her—destroy the one that fathered her children. And the children? There was no thought as to how this act would affect them. All that mattered to her was to be free. To be free of the responsibility of being a wife and mother, free to pursue happiness, no matter what the cost. This is that story—a story of an obsession. It’s a story so cold and callous that there are no words that can adequately describe it. A story about a person who will commit an act that would shatter lives and leave a child with flesh wounds of the mind—wounds that would last a lifetime.

Life After Hurricane Sandy: The Aftermath of Hurricane Sandy

by Jean Laurie

As the president of the Ocean Breeze Civic Association, Jean Laurie loves her little beach community in Staten Island, New York. Generations of families grew up in the safety and beauty of this charming town.

That sense of security is shattered in October of 2012 when Hurricane Sandy barrels into New York.

The super-storm devastates Ocean Breeze, destroying both property and lives. But in the aftermath, Laurie is touched by how the community comes together with volunteers and churches from around the world to help restore some semblance of normal life. While many do their utmost to help, however, others see opportunity in tragedy.

Battling the city and government agencies for the aid Ocean Breeze desperately needs becomes a daily challenge as red tape and politicians more interested in photo opportunities than actually helping residents who have lost everything delay much needed aid for months on end.

Despite the setbacks, the community rallies and ultimately shows strength, resourcefulness, and mutual support that Laurie cannot forget.

Life after Hurricane Sandy is written in honor of those who refused to let political wrangling and a natural disaster destroy their neighborhoods. Where the state, government, and city failed, people helping each other succeeded.

A deep thinker, a military leader, and a political dynamo, he was George Washington's right-hand man and perhaps the most important figure in the shaping of the Constitution. His policies and practices in government set the United States down a path of commercial wealth and economic stability. His ideas still resonate in the powerful nation he helped create.During his time, Hamilton was a divisive figure. A political extremist who antagonized the conservative parts of the new republic while protecting its former opponents. The man at the heart of the nation's first major sex scandal. A political operator whose actions outraged opponents and eventually led to the duel that cost him his life.It was an extraordinary life, made more extraordinary by Hamilton's origins. He was an outsider, an immigrant from the Caribbean who arrived in New York to make a new life for himself. In doing so, he helped to shape the framework of politics and commerce in America. In retrospect, the amazing thing about his fame is not its recent resurgence, but that it took so long for him to be widely recognized.This book tells the story of Alexander Hamilton.

Memoir of Col. Benjamin Tallmadge

by Benjamin Tallmadge

Guerilla, rebel, politician, spy—Col. Benjamin Tallmadge lived one of the most remarkable lives of the American Revolution When British troops defeated the Continental Army on Long Island, Gen. George Washington was forced to abandon New York in order to save the revolution. The British established their headquarters in New York City, beginning an occupation that would last the length of the war. Priceless intelligence flowed through the city’s harbor, and Washington wanted to claim it as his own. To Benjamin Tallmadge, a young officer of the Continental Army, the general assigned an impossible mission: Infiltrate New York, establish a spy network, and report everything the British know.   Throughout the war, Tallmadge and his spies collected intelligence on troop movements, sneak attacks, and the treachery of Benedict Arnold. Nearly two and a half centuries later, the heroic exploits of the Culper Spy Ring serve as the inspiration for the acclaimed TV series Turn: Washington’s Spies and the video game Assassin’s Creed III. In this lively and engaging memoir, the days of revolution are remembered by a patriot who fought in the shadows—and helped redefine the nature of espionage.

True Crime Stories: A Prequel: 4 Shocking True Crime Cases

by Jack Rosewood

There are killers who stalk their prey, learning all they can about an intended target before striking. Some commit the act of murder out of hatred or revenge for someone in their lives. Killers like Detlev Guenzel searched for like-minded souls who would allow them to indulge in their deepest darkest fantasies. Then of course, there are those who brutally murder for no apparent reason whatsoever. Each of the four true crime murder cases in this true crime anthology are all different from each other in many ways. The wife who was cast aside for a much younger model; the vore who sought out a willing participant in the act of consensual homicide and cannibalism; the young man who butchered his elderly neighbours; and the man whose partners either disappeared or turned up dead over the period of 54 years. For these true crime murder stories we delve into the background of each killer, the acts they committed, and the criminal investigation that brought them down. We look at why they killed, even when there seems to be no apparent motive. True murder cases like these are hard to fathom, and will leave you wondering about the horrors of humanity. True crime stories are the most frightening of all, as you discover what people have the capability of doing to others.This is a prequel to Jack Rosewood's best true crime books series, True Crime Stories.
