  • The Call of Zulina [Kindle Edition]

    13 February 2012
    2 Views

    From Publishers Weekly

    Strom, evangelical Christian author of 34 books and an activist against modern slavery, takes an indirect approach to calling attention to that issue with her newest fiction title, the first of three planned in the Grace in Africa series, set in West Africa in 1787. Strom’s protagonist, Grace Winslow, the daughter of an English sea captain and an African princess, aligns herself with her father’s slaves. Young adult Grace is promised in marriage to a pompous, offensive white man and even Grace’s mother (who endured the same fate, having been forced to marry for political reasons) colludes with Grace’s father in this scheme. Grace, realizing she is just as much a slave as her full African counterparts, runs away and discovers a new life and a better reason for living. She also has her eyes opened to the atrocities that have surrounded her for years. Strom’s fictional account of the battle at the fortress of Zulina between the slaves and their masters is mostly believable, though some of the dialogue sounds a bit stilted. Strom does succeed in capturing how utterly reprehensible any form of slavery is, past or present. (Aug.)

    Product Description
    When the police do nothing to solve the murders of three prostitutes knifed to death in 1866 Sicily, a struggling widow unmasks the killer, but not before uncovering burdensome truths of her own.

    It is six years after Unification and Sicily is in chaos. Bandits rule the hills. Waves of cholera kill thousands. The mafia begins its reign of organized terror, raping a population squeezed by conscription, crippling taxes, and corrupt officials.

    At a high-class house near Palermo, three prostitutes have been knifed to death, their foreheads slashed with a strange mark, their bodies dumped on the madam’s doorstep. When the chief inspector does little to solve the case, the madam summons her lifelong friend and asks her to catch the killer.

    A forty-something midwife with seven children and diminishing funds, Serafina decides she must help her friend. She plunges into the investigation, gathering evidence, following leads. She meets with relatives and friends of the deceased and discovers a thread common to all three victims.

    But when a fourth victim is strangled, Serafina’s hopes for a quick resolution are dashed. Her emotional low is short-lived, however. In a defiant meeting with the don, she makes an important discovery. Convinced of the murderer’s identity, she conceives a daring plan and, with the help of her daughter, unmasks the killer.

    Product Description
    Angels in Cowboy Boots is an award winning story. Two years ago Sarah Bentley lost everything except her faith and it teeters in sync with her hesitant steps. Now a chance encounter with four-year-old Matt and his uncle, Dave McKeever, brings hope for the future with a job, a wonderful new place to live, and…dare she dream?…love.
    Active outdoorsman, Dave McKeever, battles the instant attraction between them believing God can’t possibly want him to marry a woman held together by titanium joints and steel rods when he needs a capable, athletic mate. Though God’s love brings them up out of the valley of pain and death, can they trust Him not to thrust them there again?
    A heart warming story of recovery and romance.

    What Readers Are Saying: “An amazing story of a young woman who lost everyone in her life and spent years trying to overcome her own physical injuries. And along comes Matt, a lively 4 year old who never lacks for a topic of conversation. This was a great story of a young woman who was physically impaired in many ways, but her shining spirit made her strong. Between Sarah and Matt, Uncle Dave had no choice but to open his heart and let love in. SQ Eads has the unique ability to allow her strong male characters to be loving men with a deep faith in God.”
    “I loved it! I really enjoyed the wonderful way that God used the darling little boy to bring the couple together, but what touched me the most went a little deeper. The story was about loving someone, loving someone with imperfections and weaknesses beyond their control, loving someone that wasn’t perfect! How refreshing!”

    In this book, you will learn simple tricks and techniques to accelerate your weight
    loss no matter what diet you are on.

    Most diets tell us to eat less, or eat one certain food (bad idea), but do not tell us what to do to keep the weight off. As a result, once a person loses weight she tends to go back to how she was eating and gains the weight (or more) back.

    This book shows many simple techniques to help keep the weight off.

    Most are very easy to adopt yet very powerful.

    I lost 40 pounds. These are the strategies I used to keep it off for almost 10 years.

    Product Description
    Sometimes it takes more than a kiss to change a toad into a handsome prince.

    When Captain Lucas Deverall returns from the Peninsular War to succeed to his deceased brother’s title, he grudgingly decides to take back his wife. But even before he learns the circumstances of his inheritance, he encounters her at a New Year’s gala. Shock sets in as he realizes the most beautiful woman in England is the same gangly, calf-eyed chit who tricked him into marriage six years before.

    That’s not how Sophie remembers it. She wishes fervently she’d had the sense not to scream when the drunken scapegrace crawled into her bed at her Uncle Harry’s house party. True, she’d had a secret tendre for the handsome wastrel, until his scathing denunciation of her after their forced wedding. Then he went off to war without even consummating their union, and for six years she heard nothing from him.

    Now the toad offers her forgiveness in exchange for his presence in her bed? Revenge comes more to mind.

    And so the battle of wits begins. And the harder they fight it, the more they fall in love.

    Product Description
    When Charles Bingley and Mr. Darcy made proposals of marriage to the Bennet sisters at the end of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, Caroline Bingley was both distressed by her brother’s choice of bride and humiliated by Mr. Darcy’s rejection of her. And she made her objections known.

    Now banished from her brother’s household, Caroline must return to her mother’s home in the north of England until she can make amends with both Bennet sisters. Desperate though Caroline may be to return to polite company, she absolutely refuses to apologize to Miss Elizabeth Bennet, and instead, she seeks an alternative route back into society in the form of Mr. William Charlton, heir to a barony.

    Through her connections with Mr. Charlton’s sister Lavinia, Caroline begins to infiltrate the household in the hopes of securing the gentleman and his title for herself. However, she must also contend with her vexing emotions regarding Mr. Patrick Rushton, a once-wealthy landowner, and the meddlesome opinions of Mrs. Rosemary Pickersgill, the companion sent by her brother.

    When all that Caroline has ever dreamed of attaining–an ancient family name, a title, and a home of her own–is finally within her reach, will she grasp for it even if it means disregarding the workings of her own heart? Or will she cast off the trappings of society and give herself to true love?
