The Way Life Should Be Book Review:

Just before dawn in Stone Harbor, Maine, two men meet in the bathhouse in a wooded park. "So what do you have in mind?" one asks. "A little surprise," the other answers before beating him to death with a steel flashlight. Newspaper editor John Quinn and his wife have returned to his hometown to raise their son, but real estate prices have soared and natives are being pushed out. Then a popular politician and family man is murdered at a well-known gay pickup spot. The victim was Quinn's childhood friend, Paul Stanwood. Quinn insists Paul was only investigating a police crackdown at the park. When the police chief and others seem to ignore and downplay obvious clues, Quinn takes matters into his own hands. Even though his wife's car is vandalized and a source is severely beaten after he speaks out on the hidden violence against gays, Quinn refuses to stop looking for answers. With so many people hiding secrets -- secrets some are willing to kill for -- Quinn has to find out the truth about his friend's murder before he, too, is permanently silenced.

The Way Life Should Be Book Review:

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Orphan Train, and the critically acclaimed author of Bird in Hand, comes a novel of love, risk, and self-discovery—includes a special PS section featuring insights, interviews, and more. Angela can feel the clock ticking. She is single in New York City, stuck in a job she doesn’t want and a life that seems to have, somehow, just happened. She inherited a flair for Italian cooking from her grandmother, but she never seems to have the time for it—these days, her oven holds only sweaters. Tacked to her office bulletin board is a photo from a magazine of a tidy cottage on the coast of Maine—a charming reminder of a life that could be hers, if she could only muster the courage to go after it. On a hope and a chance, Angela decides to pack it all up and move to Maine, finding the nudge she needs in the dating profile of a handsome sailor who loves dogs and Italian food. But her new home isn’t quite matching up with the fantasy. Far from everything familiar, Angela begins to rebuild her life from the ground up. Working at a local coffeehouse, she begins to discover the pleasures and secrets of her new small-town community and, in the process, realizes there’s really no such thing as the way life should be.

The Way Life Should Be? Book Review:

A complete overview of the exact mechanisms whereby the internationalist lobby is controlling, directing, and actively organizing mass Third World immigration with the explicitly-stated aim of destroying America--viewed with special emphasis through events in the state of Maine. Analyzing all aspects of society--the media, economics, environment and social and political structures--this work shows in painstakingly-documented and fully-referenced detail exactly who is directing America's current political process and decline. It shows that neo-liberal capitalists and crazed ideologues are facilitating mass migration into America, and actively seeking to transform the country as we know it in their image, in the process destroying the American nation. This cosmopolitan cabal uses their wealth and influence to see the realization of their agenda on every front, to advance their own interests and continue to enrich themselves regardless of the cost to any other group; this globalist "elite" through stealth and deception is responsible for the wide-spread push of the deeply harmful ideologies and policies we find ourselves facing today. At the same time, its lobby engages in blatant double standards and suppresses any criticism of this "hypocrisy of the highest order" through a barrage of "hate crimes" and "hate speech" legislation, and "tolerance" factories which seek to outlaw any discussion or mention of their power and influence. Highly recommended for anyone seeking to understand exactly what is happening in America--and indeed the entire Western world.

The Book Life Book Review:

Growing up in Washington, D.C., Victor Bradford never knew his parents. He spent the first years of his life in an orphanage and then moved to a foster home. Bullied by his classmates and mistreated by his foster siblings, he came to understand the meaning of evil. Transferred to a group home, he knew he would quickly learn about life. Indeed, he was introduced to cigarettes, drugs, alcohol, and sex. He was headed down a path of self-destruction. A telling and honest memoir, The Book Life shares the author?s many struggles and hardships. But it is also a story of redemption as he tells of how he found victory over drugs and alcohol through the love of the Lord Jesus Christ. He narrates this story to encourage others to enter into a relationship with the Lord in order to avoid the pitfalls and trials he experienced throughout his life. The Book Life demonstrates how God?s loving grace transformed him from a selfish drug addict into a loving and caring human being.

Fire Bell in the Night Book Review:

Filled with historic details of the time, Fire Bell in the Night explores the explosive tension between North and South, black and white, that gripped Charleston, South Carolina, in the summer of 1850. Geoffrey S. Edwards's first novel tells the story of New York Tribune reporter John Sharp, sent to cover the capital trial of Darcy Calhoun, a farmer who stands accused of harboring a fugitive slave. As the trial begins, John quickly realizes that not everything is as it appears in the genteel city of Charleston. A series of mysterious fires in white establishments brings the state militia, a curfew for the black population, and rising tension at the courthouse. To unravel the city's secrets, Sharp must enter Charleston's plantation society, where he is befriended by Tyler Breckenridge, owner of the Willowby plantation, and his beautiful sister Clio. Set against the backdrop of a nation headed toward civil war, Fire Bell in the Night is a page-turning account of a trial and one young reporter's efforts to discover the truth.

Profits from this collection will benefit Blue Angel, a nonprofit combating food insecurity by delivering healthy food from local farmers to those in need.
