"This is a book which is hard to put down. It is very well written with a sensitivity which will warm your heart. Funny at times and filled with little pearls of everyday wisdom, this book is as much a romantic thriller as it is a perfect little capsule of a time gone by. It is a book about love of all kinds - between grandmother and child, between child and dog, between man and woman.

"This book is a page turner. As a playwright, I crave true action and drama. This novel has it!" -- Lavonne Mueller, Playwright and Author

The Loss of Deference, by Michelle Muckley. (Still $0.99?)
Sometimes hope appears where you least expect it. This mystery/thriller is yours for 99 cents today.
"Michelle Muckley paints fine portraits of five flawed characters in rural England who are each dealing in their own way with economically precarious times that are not very much unlike our own. She creates a believable, but very troubling, scenario of the deteriorating health-care system, which is at the center of her story.
The final few chapters as the novel races to its finish is a white-knuckle ride, and more than once I wanted to close my eyes so that I might not see what I was sure was coming.
The Loss of Deference would lend itself well to being a stage play with its timely subject matter, its complicated characters, and its dramatic action. I look forward to Ms. Muckley's future explorations of human situation and emotion. " -- Thomas B. Crattie, Amazon reviewer
212 pages, with a 4.4-star rating from 5 reviews.
Children of Dreams, by Lorilyn Roberts. (Still free?)
Featured on Animal Planet's "Monsters Inside Me," this inspiring story tells a gripping story of international adoption.
"Until reading "Children of Dreams" I had no idea how difficult it was to adopt children from a foreign country. Lorilyn Roberts' inspiring story doesn't mask her rollercoaster of emotions as she struggles when faced with insurmountable problems. She boldly faces her fears, renews her faith and ultimately experiences joy amidst her trials. Her beautiful writing draws you instantly into an exciting story of love and faith. This book contains two stories of adoption. She adopts one daughter from Nepal and a second daughter from Vietnam. Both stories are heart warming and explain the struggles that are typical during the adoption process." -- Rebecca, Top 50 Amazon reviewer
236 pages, with a 4.7-star rating from 72 reviews.
In The After, by Ashley Mackler-Paternostro. (Still free?)
Emmy Burns walks away from her seemingly fairy-tale life in this work of contemporary women's fiction. Dark secrets of her abusive marriage emerge in this highly-rated work, available free today!
"In The After opens with a woman recounting her experience bonding with her mother over fairy tales leading into a class, as an adult, analysing them clinically. Ashley's style conveys this kind of thing so well. There are few words spent on this part, compared to its importance to the rest of the book, but I knew before I'd hit page four that this book was going to be one of my favourites." -- David Adams, Amazon reviewer
398 pages, with a 4.6-star rating from 5 reviews.
