"The writing style was tight and the stories short enough to read in one sitting. Since I just finished it, the last story is the one that's sticking...I still have a lump in my throat and am wiping at my eyes. It was different from the rest of the stories which were more paranormal in nature - it was a tearjerker, be forewarned." -- Amazon reviewer

Flower from Castile Trilogy - Book One: The Alhambra Decree, by Lilian Gafni. (Still 2.99?)

This historical novel stars Isabella Obrigon living in Spain during the late 1400's. She must choose whether to conceal or reveal her true identity in an Islamic town that is facing Catholic unification. Get it today for $2.99!

"Gafni takes the reader on a journey through time - placing us amid the struggles and conflict caused by religion. As a historical fiction, Gafni gives us everything we need to walk through the towns and villages and feel, taste and smell the ambiance and lifestyle of that time. And thankfully, she never bogs us down with unnecessary details that slow the story." -- Amazon reviewer

The Flower from Castile Trilogy opens in 1491 during the tumultuous unification of Spain under Catholicism. The battle for the conquest of Granada, which was held by the Islamic Moors for 700 years, empties Spain's coffers and decimates the ranks of her soldiers.

Beautiful young Isabella Obrigon lives a life of privilege in Seville until she is caught between these two powerful nations. She is forced to uncover a secret about her birth and becomes trapped between two faiths and two peoples. She must decide whether to follow her heart and join her endangered brethren seeking exile from the brutal and infamous Inquisition, or stay and live a lie. When Isabella is held prisoner in the fabled Alhambra palace in Granada, an encounter with Miguel Costa seals her fate.

Nearby, Christopher Columbus-who may have secrets of his own-waits impatiently for the war to be won. His dreams of exploration and fabulous wealth can only come true if he receives a summons from Queen Isabella.

"Overall, this book is a great second installment to the series. It's not just filler, there are significant things that happen in the book that need to happen. Honestly, I wish I could talk about them, but if I did I would spoil the book. There is so much good stuff here. Just go read it, please. You won't be sorry." -- Amazon reviewer

Threaded Through Time, Book One, by Sarah Ettritch. (Still 2.99?)

This time-traveling romance is full of forbidden love. When Pam accidentally summons two people from 1910 to present day, she and her roommate must figure out how to get them home - unfortunately falling in love seems to be getting in the way! This book is $2.99.

"This is a lovely well written book of timeless forbidden love. The story goes between 1910 and 2010 with ease and is set in Canada. The four characters interact really well together after they got to know each other and to learn to trust. This is the first book in a series and has got off to an excellent start. Once started I couldn't turn the pages fast enough. I can't wait to see which path Sarah is going to have these characters follow." -- Amazon reviewer

“For those who were born before or after their time...”

That described Pam. She’d always felt that she’d been born too late—there was no chivalry in the world anymore.

She’d only wanted to commune with the universe while reading a “moon rhyme” in the antique book she’d purchased from the local New Age shop. She had not expected guests—especially not Jasper and Margaret, summoned one hundred years into the future by the rhyme just as Jasper was proposing to Margaret.

Now the displaced visitors insist that they be returned to 1910, and Pam and her roommate Robin agree. But the rhyme won’t work until the next moon cycle, and in the intervening month, forbidden love blooms between Pam and Jasper, and Robin and Margaret.

170 pages, with a 4.8-star rating from 5 reviews.
