In the Beginning Was the Logos, by Paul Pavao. (Still 0.99?)
This historical work covers the intriguing and controversial events behind the Council of Nicea, which in the 4th Century A.D. transformed the basic tenets of Christianity.
"Man Alive what a book! I've worked in the `apologetics' field for years, defending the Trinity is something I do in my sleep....and then I read this book. The authors extensive knowledge and obvious love of the ante Nicene fathers comes across in every page. His writing style isn't pretentious, stuffy or academic but he IS competent in his field and a great communicator." -- Amazon reviewer

Roan Rose, by Juliet Waldron. (Still 4.99?)
Rose Whitby is a commoner who is summoned to the royal castle, where her secret love will one day rise to be King Richard III. A fascinating "downstairs" view of royal life during the reign of the House of York.
"Fabulous read! Juliet Waldron's Roan Rose is a beautiful story of love and loyalty set during the tumultuous history of Richard III and his rise to kingship. The relationship between Rose, a young peasant girl, and her mistress, the noble Anne Neville, is a powerful one regardless of their different positions in life. Their friendship - though at times strained - manages to span both time and space. Rose, herself, is extremely human, a girl struggling to find her own place in life - for what place is there for a peasant in the intrigues of the English nobility? The novel is a strikingly crafted story about love and duty, mortality and devotion. I absolutely loved it!" -- Amazon reviewer

Seriously Mum, What's an Alpaca? - An Adventure in the Frying Pan of Spain, by Alan Parks. (Still 0.99?)
A couple moves to Spain to raise alpacas in this enchanting story. Highly-praised and just 99 cents today!
"I want to believe that I could make the leap that Alan and Lorna made, but I'm not sure I could. But I am so pleased that they did and that Alan has shared the details with us.
When Alan proposes that they move to Spain and raise Alpacas, I laughed out loud! I suspect if they had waited until it all made sense, they would never have made the move, and that would have been unfortunate for them, and for those of us who are privileged to follow their story. Alan has done a nice job of sharing their lives without making it overly romantic, or desperate. His honesty in showing the trials as well as the joys keeps the reader from believing they could just pick up and make the same move. But for the truly adventurous, it all seems wonderful!
I enjoyed the neighbors and their willingness to step in and help, and to include Alan and Lorna in social events. Even though Alan and Lorna arrived with very little Spanish language, the neighbors still accepted them, and having that connection proved crucial to surviving.
The paragraphs at the end of chapters that were written from the perspective of the various animals was also a clever touch that truly added to the story.
All in all a great read especially for anyone who has ever thought of stepping off of the tread mill of life and into a simpler time." -- Amazon reviewer
