A Psychological Thriller: Deadly Reaction: (A Psychological Thriller Full of Suspense)

by Adam Greyson

Al Migwans has been arrested for murdering one of his high school students. As a single man who had never dated, he looks suspicious to the stereotypical mind. But all that interests him is science, research and helping humanity. To lesser minds, he is too good to be true.

At the courthouse, Migwans was helped by a guardian angel who appeared out of nowhere. With all that had happened to him, could he trust this stranger?

After a bomb destroys his house, Migwans goes into hiding. His new friend bankrolls his defense and a new offense. When the beleaguered high school teacher discovers that the government is involved in the attacks, he realizes that his next moves need to be painfully accurate or he might not survive the week.

The Wisdom of Stones

by Brian Peyton Joyner

“A deeply moving novel that addresses the question â?? how do we become who we were meant to be? Brian Peyton Joyner has gifted us with a coming-of-age story full of both humor and also courageous vulnerability as he takes us on a journey through the love of both God and family to an authentic life.”
Patti Callahan Henry
NYT bestselling author

Abandoned by his father at age seven, Ben loses his mother to a car accident that same year and becomes his grandparents’ responsibility and their joy.

Handing his grandfather an arrowhead that he finds at his mother’s funeral, Ben sets in motion an agreement between them: Ben gifts his grandfather a stone, and his grandfather gifts him a story. Years later when Mee Maw falls ill, Ben makes yet another deal – this time with God: If Mee Maw recovers, Ben will dedicate himself to the church.These commitments inform the man he will become.

But life has a way of throwing us curve balls, and it throws Ben a doozy; no matter how hard he tries, he can’t pray away the gay. And being gay is in direct conflict with his church’s teachings, a roadblock to his becoming a minister.

A beautifully written and relevant coming-of-age story, The Wisdom of Stones is a tribute to one young man’s heart-wrenching journey towards self-acceptance, to the relationship between a boy and his grandpa, and an exploration of the impact of each generation on the next. A tribute to the courage it takes to define and then make the right choices for ourselves, this novel is destined to become a new Southern classic.

Fled Is That Music

by Desiree Hamersley

It has been said that the Edwardian age of security and pleasure didn’t end in 1910 but in August 1914.

Alix Paget, a parson’s daughter from the North Riding of Yorkshire, has her first taste of London life and the social Season when she comes out under the patronage of her rich aunt Nora.

She thinks she has given her heart to the rather disreputable Captain Guy Tancred and that her feelings for Christopher Gromont are only those of a cousin-by-marriage.

With the outbreak of war she is thrown into a very different life, emancipated in one stroke from the sheltered one she has been used to always.

Kit too is changed.

They belong to a fated generation.

Désirée Hamersley’s charming novel has captured the atmosphere of England before and during the First World War perfectly.

Désirée Hamersley was born into a Pembrokeshire family in west Wales. Studying at the School of Art, Cambridge with Ronald Searle in the late 1930s, she decided to change direction and became a prolific short story writer following the outbreak of World War I. Her first novel, The Quiet Rebel was published in 1970.
