Special Introduction Edition

When Fred Harvey decided to start a restaurant chain, determined to give railroad passengers better culinary experiences than he himself had had on his many train journeys, he didn’t know that he would be doing far more than jumpstarting America’s restaurant industry.

Harvey Houses (and eventually, hotels) became known for their outstanding quality, standardized from place to place so you always knew that if you ordered steak, for instance, it would be the exact same high quality, no matter the restaurant. However, the real appeal of Fred Harvey’s industry, the reason so many people still remember his businesses today, is because of the Harvey Girls.

Far more than mere waitresses, the Harvey Girls were a group of courageous young women who ventured west to hire on with Mr. Harvey, not really knowing the scope of the challenges they would be facing. Ultimately, these women became the wives, mothers, daughters, aunts, sisters, and grandmothers who helped populated the west.

Using the work experience they gained at Harvey Houses, they also became some of the country’s first female archaeologists, architects, doctors, lawyers, etc. In truth, Harvey Houses were a springboard for the women who helped shape the western half of the United States, in more ways than one, and this introduction to the series unfolds that riveting story.

Then, Book 1 of the Harvey Girl series, A Love So Legendary, tells the story of the first New Mexico Harvey House, set in the rough and tumble, isolated little town of Raton. When Mary Jane Colter hires on as a Harvey Girl, she has dreams that few women of her day and age are allowed to fulfill.

Then she meets Tom Gable, the Raton Harvey House manager, and not only finds the love of a lifetime but a man who might just help her chase her wild dreams. Then a dangerous mystery puts their brand-new relationship to the test and risks their very lives.

Love and legend collide as Mary Jane and Tom walk right out of the pages of history and into a timeless romance that could only ever take place in New Mexico, the Land of Enchantment.

The Holy Lance (The English Templars Book 1)

by Andrew Latham

The year is 1191. A daring counterattack against the Saracens’ last-ditch effort to relieve the besieged city of Acre has not only saved the Third Crusade from a fatal defeat; it has also brought the leader of that counterattack, English Templar Michael Fitz Alan, to the attention of King Richard the Lionheart. In the days that follow, the king charges Fitz Alan with a life-or-death mission – to recover the long-lost Holy Lance, a religious relic widely believed to be responsible for the near-miraculous success of the First Crusade. The ensuing quest leads Fitz Alan and a hand-picked band of Templars on a journey deep into enemy territory, where they battle Saracens, Assassins, hostile Christians and even a traitor within their own ranks as they seek to return the Holy Lance to Christian hands and thereby ensure the liberation of Jerusalem and the success of the crusade.



Avrum: A Renewed Testament

by R.A. Giuggio

In a mountainside town in southern Judea, at the beginning of the Common Era, two young boys are playing a game they invented using sticks and stones. Friends since just about birth, the two are inseparable. One is fated to travel extensively (for his time and place) in search of his destiny, and will write a memoir about his trek. The other will spend most of his life within twenty miles of his home town, and never put pen to paper. He however will be the subject of more literature than any other figure in human history.

This book of Avrum is the first boy’s story, detailing not only his experiences, but those that intertwined and intersected with his friend’s. Avrum bar Jacob will die in obscurity thirty years after his friend’s execution, which remains today the most revered and honored (and debated) death of all time. Those thirty years will be spent obsessing about whom his friend really was, and the consequences of that friendship.



Plain Jane Hastings: Sometimes, it is not how things begin but how things end that matters.

by Pearl Corder

The privilege of being born into a close and welcoming family with loving parents is not the life Jane enjoyed as a child. Instead, as a small infant, she was abandoned at a working Orphanage. An institution where the children were required to do all the work and care for one another. However, the day Jane has been dreading is soon to arrive. It is the day Jane will turn sixteen. At this time government funding for her care will end. Even though she has seamstress skills, there are no jobs available. Because of this unfortunate predicament, she is forced to accept a Mail-Order-Bride proposal from a man named Calvin Stoutte who is only interested in obtaining a farm worker for his homestead. Will he come to appreciate her as his wife or will her life travel in a different direction? It has been said that a difficult past can make a strong person. Sometimes, it is not how things begin but how things end that matters.
