Bargain Kindle books! (Tuesday Oct 6)

Hollywood Witch Hunter, by Valerie Tejeda. (Still 0.99?)

"By a third of the way in, I was casting the actors for the television series for this novel in my brain. It would be a perfect show. The characters are strong and complex and fresh. The world-building is interesting and rooted in a cool setting to begin with. The action is surprising, fun, exciting. I will be recommending this novel to my high school students looking for fresh, exciting paranormal YA with a protagonist who is real, complex and strong." -- Amazon Reviewer

The Outlander (P.S.), by Gil Adamson. (Still 1.99?)

"Outlander by Gil Adamson is one of those novels that somehow gets under you skin a little. You find yourself somehow colored by the story and catch yourself remembering an incident in the story during the day while your at work and not reading. Not all books come to mind at odd times during the day, but this one does." -- Amazon Reviewer


In 1903 a mysterious young woman flees alone across the West, one heart-pounding step ahead of the law. At nineteen, Mary Boulton has just become a widow—and her husband's killer. As bloodhounds track her frantic race toward the mountains, she is tormented by mad visions and by the knowledge that her two ruthless brothers-in-law are in pursuit, determined to avenge their younger brother's death. Responding to little more than the primitive fight for life, the widow retreats ever deeper into the wilderness—and into the wilds of her own mind—encountering an unforgettable cast of eccentrics along the way.
With the stunning prose and captivating mood of great works like Charles Frazier's Cold Mountain or early Cormac McCarthy, Gil Adamson's intoxicating debut novel weds a brilliant literary style to the gripping tale of one woman's desperate escape.



404 pages, with a 4.1-star rating from 198 reviews.

                     



Wish You Happy Forever: What China's Orphans Taught Me About Moving Mountains, by Jenny Bowen. (Still 1.99?)

"This is a beautifully written, inspiring story written by a former screenwriter turned social enterpreneur. Jenny's story demonstrates how humility, a desire to learn and a drive to help others can accomplish anything. While she believes she isn't an expert, Jenny is a teacher for all of us on how to listen, connect with people from different cultures, keep your head down (when possible), and accomplish the impossible." -- Amazon Reviewer


Wish You Happy Forever chronicles Half the Sky founder Jenny Bowen's personal and professional journey to transform Chinese orphanages—and the lives of the neglected girls who live in them—from a state of quiet despair to one of vibrant promise.
After reading an article about the thousands of baby girls languishing in Chinese orphanages, Bowen and her husband adopted a little girl from China and brought her home to Los Angeles, not out of a need to build a family but rather a commitment to save one child. A year later, as she watched her new daughter play in the grass with her friends, thriving in an environment where she knew she was loved, Bowen was overcome with a desire to help the children that she could not bring home. That very day she created Half the Sky Foundation, an organization conceived to bring love into the life of every orphan in China and one that has actually managed to fulfill its promise.
In Wish You Happy Forever, a fish out of water tale like no other, Bowen relates her struggle to bring the concept of "child nurture and responsive care" to bemused Chinese bureaucrats and how she's actually succeeding. Five years after Half the Sky's first orphanage program opened, government officials began to mention child welfare and nurturing care in public speeches. And, in 2011, at China's Great Hall of the People, Half the Sky and its government partners celebrated the launch of The Rainbow Program, a groundbreaking initiative to change the face of orphan care by training every child welfare worker in the country. Thanks to Bowen's relentless perseverance through heartbreak and a dose of humor, Half the Sky's goal to bring love the lives of forgotten children comes ever closer.
