Baby City: An Inside Look into Labor & Delivery, by Freida McFadden. (Still free?)

"I loved this book, and I'm not easy to please! The medical details are fascinating, the characters well-developed and the storylines woven together in a satisfying fashion. The patient cases are well balanced with the emotional story of OB/GYN resident Dr. McCoy. The other doctors and residents really come to life, too, including the resident who is her best friend (and pregnant) and the male resident she's unwillingly falling in love with. I truly wished this book would go on and on!" -- Amazon Reviewer

There are only three things in this world that are certain: death, taxes, and babies.

Nobody knows this truth better than Emily McCoy, a third year resident working in Baby City, the affectionate nickname for the busy Labor and Delivery unit at a New York City hospital. On a typical day in Baby City, Emily delivers more babies than the number of hours of sleep she manages to squeeze in that night. And definitely more than the number of dates she's been on since she started her training in OB/GYN two years earlier.

As Emily works tirelessly to safely herald baby after baby after baby (after baby) into the world, she becomes well acquainted with the three hard facts of Baby City:

1) Babies never come when you want them to.

2) Babies always come when you don't want them to.

3) You don't know who your true friends are until your baby is sliding down the birth canal.

Prodigal Girl: Based on a True Story, by Ramos Talaya. (Still 0.99?)

"This book was really informative. I enjoyed the story completely. It was gutwrenching for me at times when I read this book yet other times I felt warmth and comfort. Ramos Talaya did an excellent job teaching us all to learn to forgive and forget the people who cause us pain. Many lessons are to be learned from reading this book. One lesson being that it's okay to love again. If you want to read a straight forward book on love and loss and learning to love again after it's all over then I suggest you take the time to read Prodigal Girl by Ramos Talaya." -- Amazon Reviewer

A shattered heart. A reckless revenge plan. Big trouble.

They broke her heart…now she has no heart, and they have to deal with the heartless monster they’ve created.

How far would you go to settle the score with your cheating ex?

Betrayed, raped and afraid to trust anyone with her heart, Finola embarks on a path of revenge, which puts lives in danger. Blinded by pain and circumstances, she cares not who gets hurt, so long as she avenges herself on those who betrayed and hurt her.

A painful and messy break up made her lose all hope and confidence in love, causing her to harden her heart, shut the door on love, and set herself on a path of retaliation that leads to hopelessness.

Sometimes, the thing you are desperately seeking is right in front of your eyes, but you are too blinded by pain and circumstances to see it. Yet, every now and then, life surprises you and love knocks at your closed heart once again…when you least expect it!

Pianist in a Bordello, by Mike Erickson. (Still free?)

"This is just a delicious, silly, fun, fact-filled, sometimes-sexy (which is more implied) wild ride through the times of many people's youth (including this reader!) Since the author is a high school teacher, we can only hope (and expect) that he teaches his classes with the wit, smarts and fun with which he writes. I know I would have loved many more high school classes (and not fallen asleep!) if I'd had THIS type of book as a textbook!! Enjoyable, delicious and if you like Forrest Gump. you'll love this!" -- Amazon Reviewer

Pianist in a Bordello

What would happen if a politician decided to tell the truth—the whole truth?
Richard Youngblood, aspiring Congressman, is about to find out. He’s running on a platform of honesty and transparency—and against the advice of his friends and advisers he’s decided to start with himself. His autobiography will lay his entire life bare before voters just days before the election.
And what a life he’s had. Born in a commune and named Richard Milhous Nixon Youngblood as an angry shot at his absent father, Richard grows up in the spotlight, the son of an enigmatic fugitive and the grandson of a Republican senator. He’s kidnapped and rescued, kicked out of college for a prank involving turkeys, arrested in Hawaii while trying to deliver secrets to the CIA…Dick Nixon Youngblood’s ready to tell all.
He’ll even tell his readers about the Amandas—three women who share a name but not much else, and who each have helped shape and define the man he’s become.
Are voters really ready for the whole truth?
Are you?
Pianist in a Bordello is a hilarious political romp through the last four decades of American history, from a narrator who is full of surprises.

Born Dead on a Winter's Night (Ozark Mountains Stories #5), by Rolland Love. (Still 4.99?)

"A memoir requires the voice of a great story teller and a sense of place. Explore what it was like to grow up in the Ozarks where silence shelters dreams and rushing streams foster reality. This author gives the reader a retreat, lets us return to a place where the heart quickens to remember our own youth and days of discovery. Judith Bader Jones, author of Delta Pearls. " -- Amazon Reviewer

"Rolland, you are such a rare, witty, and honest writer! You bring us with you on every page.” ‪Deborah Shouse‬‬‬‬‬‬ Special to The Kansas City Star

“BORN DEAD ON A WINTER'S NIGHT IS AN AWESOME MEMOIR!” Mary-Lane Kamberg, Best selling author http://www.kansascitywriters.com

I was born dead. In the dead of winter. Still as a stone. Blue as the smoky haze that sometimes settles on the Ozark Mountains. I know because my mother, Helen Love, my father Ray Love and Aunt Maude told me so. I can only imagine the scene: Doc Barnes, a tall rugged-looking man with bushy white hair, worked frantically when he realized there was trouble. His white shirt covered in blood and the flickering light of a kerosene lamp added ghost-like dimension to the scene. Cold enough to see your breath, the only source of heat came from a cast iron wood-burning stove in the living room. I was saved because Doc carried me outside and rolled me in snow that covered the ground from a midwinter storm. The cold caused me to take a breath and I began to cry.

Born Dead on a Winter’s Night is a 36,000-word memoir about growing up in Missouri’s rugged Ozark Mountains in the 1940s and 1950s. It’s a collection of essays recalling what life was like living off the land in a self-sufficient family. By others’ standards we were poor, but we had everything we needed. I spent my days fishing, floating the rivers, and narrowly escaping encounters with poisonous snakes. Enjoyed by all ages.
