Lies My Girlfriend Told Me Book Excerpt:

When Alix's charismatic girlfriend, Swanee, dies from sudden cardiac arrest, Alix is overcome with despair. As she searches Swanee's room for mementos of their relationship, she finds Swanee's cell phone, pinging with dozens of texts sent from a mysterious contact, L.T. The most recent text reads: "Please tell me what I did. Please, Swan. Te amo. I love you." Shocked and betrayed, Alix learns that Swanee has been leading a double life--secretly dating a girl named Liana the entire time she's been with Alix. Alix texts Liana from Swanee's phone, pretending to be Swanee in order to gather information before finally meeting face-to-face to break the news. Brought together by Swanee's lies, Alix and Liana become closer than they'd thought possible. But Alix is still hiding the truth from Liana. Alix knows what it feels like to be lied to--but will coming clean to Liana mean losing her, too?

Echoes of the Past Book Excerpt:

Having moved to the hustle and bustle of London from Jamaica, Gloria Ifill found her initial attempt to settle into British life quite an experience – equating the overwhelming cultural differences and dramatic change in weather to leaving Earth and moving to Mars. Providing readers with an authentic insight into growing up in Jamaica in the 40s and 50s, Gloria shares her experiences of the rigorous importance of discipline and respect at home and at school, and the ramifications of not adhering to the rules. Having moved to London in the 1960s, Gloria attended Lewisham College, taking part in late evening sessions to study English, typing and shorthand, before going on to marry and have three children. Echoes of the Past details the rich history of how life was compared to how it is now, which will put a smile on the face of anyone who looks back at Britain with fond memories. This book will appeal to readers interested in the life of a Jamaican family in 1960s London, as well as those who have emigrated themselves or are interested in doing so.

HE CAME TO DESTROY THE CHURCH Book Excerpt:

This book is a must read for all God-believing, Bible-believing, pastors who are retiring or leaving their position for any reason. It is also a must-read book by all readers who are searching for a Christian church led by a God-fearing Bible-believing pastor. In addition, the book will educate families so that they can have ideas of what to do when the family is voodooed. The book tells all the tricks and techniques that are used by pastors that are pretenders and are devil worshippers, not godly pastors. Yes, I mean some pastors are not really pastors, and they do not believe in our Mighty Father God! Their goal is to destroy the churches, so they move from church to church to accomplish their evil mission. This book will prepare you with many tricks that are played to God’s children. After reading this book, you will thank God, and you will become strong in faith. You will realize God is the only way and is stronger than any devil. However, as Christians, we must be prepared. You do not want to be caught off guard! This is what makes the devil happy because many people (Christians) never expected such tricks and had never seen neither expected such tricks, just because they believe the devil cannot tempt them because they are born again! I have given many true examples to help you understand how the enemy works. This can be very difficult for Christians who have lived a clean life all their life until they are tested. This book will help to make your faith stronger and be able to fight the evil one if you meet a voodoo pastor at a church or other voodoo people outside the church. This book will also help non-Christians to understand the way of our mighty God is the best way and no other way. God’s grace and peace to all who will be reading this book! The devil does not want you to read this book, but I wish you all the best, and let us be strong with God so that when in this world we are tested like Job, our Mighty Father can give us wisdom and strength in faith to fight the devil! I have had some people or some pastors say, the devil cannot attack born-again Christians. This is not true. Satan has no boundaries on the earth; he is in all countries of this world. His goal is to attack and corrupt Christians who are not strong in their faith. In summary, I pray that this book will help make your faith in God (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) stronger!

Listen for the Lark is a story of compassion, love and survival in the American wilderness. Penelope Van Princis immigrated to New Amsterdam from the Netherlands in 1643. Filled with the promises of the New World, she is shipwrecked off the coast of New Jersey. Upon reaching the shore she looses everything she owns and everyone she loves to an attack from unfriendly Indians, leaving her permanently scared. Having been left for dead, she survives until the Sanhicans of the Delaware Indians befriend her and nurse her back to health. While among these native people, Penelope is forced to accept their cruel form of justice, confront her fears and accept her husband's death while paving a new life for herself in a wilderness that is not always fair. Because of the attack, the fear of carrying a Maqua child haunts her after two people from Fort Amsterdam accuse her of carrying a bastard. Since her life is in constant danger, she questions God's love and doubts she has any purpose in the universe. Pursued by two very different men while she is grieving for her murdered husband, Penelope walks a tight rope while trying to protect her unborn child. Both men have lost their wives and need Penelope to help them rebuild their lives. As if she didn't have enough problems in her life, Penelope has to protect three runaway slaves and a Jesuit priest who have joined her in the Sanhican community because living at Fort Amsterdam was too dangerous. Listen for the Lark is our imaginative journey into Penelope's body, mind, and soul as she lives through the suspenseful drama of her first nine months in the New World. Penelope Van Princis, a remarkable woman, helped establish the country we love today.

Siden has made an acute and disturbing exploration of the way in which lives of individuals are bound up in the accidents and complexities of political history. This illustrated catalogue includes a preface by Susan Ferleger Brades, interviews, an essay by Robert Fleck and artist's biography.
