Nine year old Jasper has been abandoned by his mother at his uncle’s farm, with nothing but a Bible and a change of clothes. When it becomes quickly apparent that he is not wanted, Jasper sets out on a journey to find his mother that will take him from the farm to the very dregs of Detroit and back again.

If you are a lover of British history, then you are no doubt familiar with the works of Philippa Gregory. The White Queen tells the story of Elizabeth Woodville, a commoner who rises from nothing to become the Queen of England…and change the course of English history forever.
Filled with historical facts and ripe with intrigue, this book has become the basis for a critically acclaimed STARZ miniseries, and is a New York Times bestseller.
Since the death of her mother 12 years ago, Lynette Carlisle has struggled to care for her father while her four siblings were off pursuing their own lives. When it becomes evident that the only option is to sell the family home, Lynette summons her siblings…and their issues…for a family meeting.
What they find will be so much more…but will it be enough to repair their damaged family relationships?
It is 1939, and the world is on the brink of war. In Coventry, a terrorist bomb had exploded on a busy street and there are multiple casualties. A man is hanged on the testimony of a witness…who later isn’t sure that what she “remembered” was accurate.
Sixty years later, Sara returns to England and begins the painful process of finding out what really happened that day…and if she was responsible for hanging the wrong man.
We are living in a time of great political turmoil here in the United States…but this is not the first time in our history that we’ve been here. In 1865, Abraham Lincoln was president of a country that had been attempting to destroy itself from the inside out for the past several years. The war has ended but the fight has just begun…and President Lincoln doesn’t know if he can do it.
He takes a short sabbatical of sorts to City Point, Virgina to make peace with what has happened and try to renew his spirit for the journey ahead. This trip has been largely shrouded in mystery, but now author Noah Trudeau provides us with an in-depth look at what really happened during those 16 days…and whether they altered the course of history forever.
