Abandoned Wharf Sisters Book Excerpt:

The streets of Whitechapel are a savage place to grow up, especially during the terrible winter of 1895. Even before she was brought into the world, the odds were stacked against Effie Wilson. Born to two irresponsible, alcoholic parents, Effie is the eldest of five children-none of whom really stand a chance. Matters are made even worse when Effie's parents disappear one day, never to return. Effie, who is only thirteen, and her brother, John, need to care for their three little sisters, but London is no place for children on their own. Scrambling to stave off starvation and homelessness, Effie and John disagree on how to protect their siblings. Now alone with her sisters, Effie will do anything for them, but she's beginning to realize that her efforts will never be enough. Her only hope could rest in Willie Green, a sweet boy with bright hazel eyes who comes and goes from Effie's life... If only she knew when he might appear again.

Riding with Ghosts Book Excerpt:

Gwen Maka, a forty-something Englishwoman, was told by everyone that her dream was impossible. Gwen's solo ride takes us across the deserts and vanished Indian trails of the American West, over the snow-peaked Rocky Mountains, down Mexico's Baja coast and finally into the sub-tropics of Central America. Her journey is intertwined with the legends of past events; as she rides through unwordly landscapes, the ghosts of the American Indians and pioneers who shaped the Americas travel with her. Riding with Ghosts is Gwen's frank but never too serious account of her epic 7,500 mile cycling tour. She handles exhaustion, climatic extremes, lechers and a permanently saddle-sore bum in a gutsy, hilarious way. Her journey is a testimony to the power of determination.

The Geometry of Sisters Book Excerpt:

New York Times bestselling author Luanne Rice explores the complex emotional equations of love and loyalty that hold together three pairs of remarkable sisters, in an unforgettable story of loss, redemption, and forgiveness The storm off Mackinac Island that engulfed Maura Shaw’s husband and elder daughter,Carrie, also swept away the illusion of her life as the perfect midwestern wife and mother. Now, after years away, Maura has returned to Rhode Island to teach English at the fabled Newport Academy and to seek a new beginning. Newport has never failed to infuse Maura with a sense of mystery and hope, but ever since the accident, her younger daughter, fourteen-year-old Beck, has retreated into the safe, predictable world of mathematics. Without Carrie, Beck has lost half of herself—the half that would have fit into the elite private school she and her brother, Travis, will attend. The half that made things right. Sixteen-year-old Travis is also struggling to adjust—juggling a long-distance first love and an attraction to a girl with a wicked sparkle in her eye. And for Maura, ghosts linger here—an unresolved breach with her own beloved sister and a long-ago secret that may now have the power to set her free. . . .

The Yoke Book Excerpt:

When the day declined he climbed down the front of the hill and crossed the narrow field toward his boat, which was buried in the rank vegetation of the water's edge. At the Nile he noted, a little distance up the river, a familiar figure among the reeds. For a moment he hesitated and then rambled through the riotous growth in that direction. As he drew near, Rachel raised herself from a search in a thicket of herbs, her arms full of them and her face a little flushed. "Idler!" said Kenkenes. "Nay," she answered with a smile, "I am at work--learned work." "Gathering witch-weeds for an incantation, sorceress?" "Not so. I am hunting herbs to make simples for the sick." "Of a truth? Then never before now have I craved for an illness that I might select my leech." -from "Chapter XIV: The Margin of the Nile" "A romance of the days when the Lord redeemed the children of Israel from the bondage of Egypt," this 1904 novel is a beautifully written adaptation of one of the most beloved Biblical tales. Kings and courtiers, priests and healers, lovers and warriors, the men and women of Miller's prose spring to life, marvelously realized, in a lost world captured as deftly as if the author had herself visited the ancient shores of the Nile. A splendid tale of people standing at the precipice of the future, caught between the old gods and the new dominion of Yahweh, The Yoke will delight readers of historical fiction. American author ELIZABETH MILLER (1878-1961) also wrote Saul of Tarsus: A Tale of the Early Christians (1906), The City of Delight: A Love Drama of the Siege and Fall of Jerusalem (1908), Daybreak: A Story of the Age of Discovery (1915).
