Scarlet Letters

by Noah Werth

Time is running out on Harry English’s dream of becoming a novelist. A 54-year-old journalist, he often stares at a portrait of Nathaniel Hawthorne in his home and ponders the fact that his literary idol died at 60. After years of deadline stress, Harry figures he’s on a similar trajectory, and he dreads the thought of shuffling off without having penned a single great American novel.

Then, out of the blue, Harry gets a Facebook friend request from a woman from Germany. An uncannily kindred spirit, Maria Chopin immediately recognizes the artist in her new pen pal’s soul. And before he’s even seen the woman shrouded behind the golden curtain in her profile photo, Harry falls in love.

One problem: He loves his wife, too. So Harry has big decisions to make. And with his old humdrum life spiraling out of control, Harry decides to turn his wild and crazy new life into a book.

He doesn’t know how it will end. But it could take him across the Atlantic if he accepts an invitation to come finish his novel in Maria’s flat. And if he follows that inexplicable something telling him what to write, the tale could take us anywhere. â?¦ Maybe back to a World War II German POW camp in the Kansas Flint Hills. â?¦ Perhaps to a place called Sleepy Hollow, where Hawthorne found his Hester Prynne. â?¦ Possibly toward a startling conclusion that ties all of them together.

Then Saige Gilmore shows up on his doorstep.

Saige was only there to see her father. She certainly never expected to be so instantly attracted to a spoiled rich boy. But she can’t seem to stop thinking about him when he’s away and fighting with him when he’s there.

As the attraction grows, Aiden is left with a choice. Save his family by giving up the woman he loves, or lose everything he’s ever known?

But then the unexpected happens and suddenly all the barriers to happiness have gone away, and they can start living the life they have always dreamed of. And this generosity flows to their friends and family as well. The chemistry between the two protagonists is awe-inspiring.

This book will make you feel like you are in the driver’s seat of a romantic love story and will leave you feeling like you have scored the ultimate catch – a man that is at once generous, kind, hot, and successful beyond anyone’s wildest dreams.

The Other Side of the Bay

by Sean Dietrich

Small towns have a way of burying things, and small-town people have a way of keeping things that way.

With reminiscence and narration, a local sheriff must comb through his own humid world to unravel the truth behind the death of a local boy. But it’s not as easy as it seems, because no one is talking.

The Other Side of the Bay is a remarkable portrait of the unique people in the Panhandle of Florida. The story weaves itself into the tall longleaf forests, and along the crests of the uneasy bay, telling a tale of the human spirit. This is a novel of how things aren’t always as black and white as they ought to be, and how right and wrong aren’t always easy to tell apart.

It’s an evocative tale that delivers its reader to the apricot sun rises and sepulchral storm clouds of their own bittersweet memories.



Almas Mortas (Golden Deer Classics) (Portuguese Edition)

by Nikolai Gogol

Se Púchkin foi o grande poeta da literatura russa moderna, Nikolai Gogol foi o seu grande prosador e «Almas Mortas» o seu grande livro. Este escritor ucraniano imaginou uma grande obra épica que não só retratasse a Rússia como lhe delineasse o futuro. Imaginou essa obra em três tempos, à maneira de «A Divina Comédia», por esta ordem: o inferno, o purgatório, o paraíso. Pelas vicissitudes da sua vida e do seu percurso espiritual, Gogol ficou-se pelo inferno, ou seja, pelo volume de «Almas Mortas», obra que conta a chegada do vigarista Tchichikov a uma cidade provinciana da Rússia esclavagista com o intuito de comprar aos senhores da terra locais, para fins inconfessáveis, almas mortas (servos da gleba já falecidos, mas que ainda constavam dos registos de recenseamento como vivos).

Estilo mordaz mas subtil, uma veia satírica e uma escrita moderna ainda hoje inimitáveis â?? é assim «Almas Mortas».
