Free and bargain Kindle books! (Wednesday May 29)

Good morning! Here are two free and two bargain Kindle books for your reading enjoyment!

Dreamer (Highland Treasure Trilogy), by May McGoldrick. (Still free?)

This first book in the Highland Treasure trilogy is free today!

"A gem of a historical romance that will elate fans of Scottish tales. The story line is fast-paced, filled with action, and contains a bit of a mystery involving a treasure. Readers will find John and Catherine enchanting, especially the hero who appeared in a previous novel. The return of other characters adds a sense of depth and homecoming even as the audience will want to read the tales of Laura, Adrianne, and more about the treasure as well as other works by marvelous May McGoldrick." -- Amazon reviewer

First Book in Highland Treasure Trilogy

Originally published by Signet (Penguin) May 2000

When her late father was branded a traitor to the king, Catherine Percy found sanctuary in Scotland. But a case of mistaken identity put her in a compromising position with the Highland earl sworn to protect her. Marriage to him saved her reputation, but nothing could save her from the stormy passion that bent her innocent body to his will--and shattered his last defense...

The acclaimed author of The Thistle and the Rose presents an exciting new trilogy. Three sisters each hold a clue to their family's treasure--and the key to the hearts of three Highland warriors...

Sweet Thing, by Renee Carlino. (Still 0.99?)

A story of self-discovery and friendship, this highly-praised novel is women's literature at its best.

"Finally I have found a book that isn't all sex and no story line. This had the perfect amount of sex and a great story line. I found it written at a good pace, not too fast like some books that are written and all over in a week or two. I wasn't too long either that you just wanted to get to the end. If I had to give a negative comment......it would be that I found the male lead a little too forgiving of some of the females' behaviour. Will look for more books for the author. Great style of writing." -- Amazon reviewer

Mia Kelly is a twenty-five-year-old walking Gap ad who thinks she has life figured out when her father’s sudden death uproots her from slow-paced Ann Arbor to New York City’s bustling East Village. There she discovers her father’s spirit for life and the legacy he left behind with the help of an old cafĂ©, a few eccentric friends, and one charming musician.

Will Ryan is good-looking, poetic, spontaneous, and on the brink of fame when he meets Mia, his new landlord, muse, and personal heartbreaker.

A story of self-discovery and friendship, Sweet Thing shines light on the power of loving and letting go.

The Wednesday Sisters: A Novel, by Meg Waite Clayton. (Still 0.99?)

Five women meet every Wednesday for years, sharing friendship and the hopes and dreams of their lives.

"The women share their feelings about marriage and motherhood and together mourn the assassination of Robert Kennedy and watch as man walks on the moon and feminists protest the Miss America pageant. They support one another through illness, infertility, racism, and infidelity—and encourage each other through publishers’ rejections. Readers will be swept up by this moving novel about female friendship and enthralled by the recounting of a pivotal year in American history as seen through these young women’s eyes." -- Amazon reviewer

BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Meg Waite Clayton's The Wednesday Daughters.

Friendship, loyalty, and love lie at the heart of Meg Waite Clayton’s beautifully written, poignant, and sweeping novel of five women who, over the course of four decades, come to redefine what it means to be family.

For thirty-five years, Frankie, Linda, Kath, Brett, and Ally have met every Wednesday at the park near their homes in Palo Alto, California. Defined when they first meet by what their husbands do, the young homemakers and mothers are far removed from the Summer of Love that has enveloped most of the Bay Area in 1967. These “Wednesday Sisters” seem to have little in common: Frankie is a timid transplant from Chicago, brutally blunt Linda is a remarkable athlete, Kath is a Kentucky debutante, quiet Ally has a secret, and quirky, ultra-intelligent Brett wears little white gloves with her miniskirts. But they are bonded by a shared love of both literature–Fitzgerald, Eliot, Austen, du Maurier, Plath, and Dickens–and the Miss America Pageant, which they watch together every year.

As the years roll on and their children grow, the quintet forms a writers circle to express their hopes and dreams through poems, stories, and, eventually, books. Along the way, they experience history in the making: Vietnam, the race for the moon, and a women’s movement that challenges everything they have ever thought about themselves, while at the same time supporting one another through changes in their personal lives brought on by infidelity, longing, illness, failure, and success.

Humorous and moving, The Wednesday Sisters is a literary feast for book lovers that earns a place among those popular works that honor the joyful, mysterious, unbreakable bonds between friends.

The Life and Prayers of Saint Thomas Aquinas, by Wyatt North. (Still free?)

Free today, this book provides a short biography and a collection of prayers centered around St. Thomas Aquinas.

"What a helpful, inspirational, and educational experience. I have started the Summa many times and not been able to get through his argument style. There are many beautiful prayers in the second half of the ebook." -- Amazon reviewer

One part biography, one part prayer book, The Life and Prayers of Saint Thomas Aquinas is an essential book for any Christian.

Aquinas’ genius lay in his ability to synthesize vast and disparate sources into intelligible and convincing discourse.

After a thorough investigation of the scholarship of Thomas Aquinas, one might contend that only the intellectually stalwart could fully benefit from knowing this great man of the church; this is perhaps true. Likely, not many “average” Christians would choose Aquinas for their bedtime reading, just as most patients would not care to hear the scientific explanation behind the human genome.

Yet, the implication of that discovery, just like the implications for Aquinas’ groundbreaking approach to Christianity, has changed everything.

84 pages, with a 4.9-star rating from 23 reviews.
