A Place To Call Home: Toby's Tale (The Rescue Dog Tales Book 1), by G. A. Whitmore. (Still free?)

"This was a thoroughly delightful and enjoyable read, one that moved me to both smiles and tears. Written for young adults, it balances well the scenes in which the dogs talk to one another and other more gritty and dramatic human scenes which explained the hardships this rescue dog went through and perhaps why. The organizations that save and the people who adopt, make a tremendous difference to many small creatures who hurt. The writer skillfully and engagingly sends that powerful and beautiful message with Toby's story." -- Amazon Reviewer

A Place to Call Home is the heartwarming and inspiring story of an abandoned white German shepherd puppy named Toby and his cross-country search for a forever home. Narrated in part by the animal characters in the book, the reader experiences Toby's world through his eyes and those of the animals he meets on his journey. 

Toby's life begins on a farm where the carefree, happy days he has known come to an abrupt end when his breeder decides to "dispose" of him and his sister Tara because of the color of their fur. With the help of a kind farmhand, the two puppies escape unharmed.

After a tumultuous time during which Toby is shuffled from place to place, he is finally adopted, but he quickly realizes his new family has deep-seated issues that put him in danger, and what seemed like an ideal home, turns into another place he must escape from.

As Toby struggles to find a forever home where he can feel safe and secure, he experiences some painful losses, but he also makes new friends--friends who will help him to trust humans again and teach him the power of love.

Inspired by a true story, this middle grade/young adult novel can be enjoyed by dog lovers of all ages.

Sink: Old Man's Tale, by Perrin Briar. (Still free?)

"I think that the characters in the story, Graham and Jeremiah, were really well-developed and had a lot of personality. The plot of the story was really good. The idea of another world underground is really creative and interesting. I like how there was a non-magical explanation to how tiny people were living for a long time underground." -- Amazon Reviewer


“Move over Cussler, Crichton and Conan Doyle. There’s a new master of thrilling adventures.”


A sinkhole is a natural phenomenon. It can happen anywhere, anytime. It drinks lakes dry, consumes jungles, and even demolishes entire mountains. You may have seen one in your street. But these things aren’t lost. They’ve simply been moved. Things are forgotten on the surface all the time. Beneath the crust, they’re always remembered.

It’s just another day for unscrupulous developer Graham Turner when he breaks into an old man’s home to steal his property deeds. But when he’s sucked through a sinkhole into a forgotten world deep beneath the earth’s surface, Graham and the old man must rely on each other if they are to survive and escape this dangerous new world and return to the surface.

SINK. A forgotten world. A lost world. But not for long.
