Seminole by Tina Siemens

Seminole by Tina SiemensPresident Carter recently made time between surgeries to get his. Now, you can get yours too. I’ll send you a signed paperback. This true story starts in 1569 and moves through the 1800s, into the early 1900s. There are trains, Indians, Mennonites, horses, a prison escape, meetings with presidents, and a beloved sheepdog. By 1977, my family’s story was front-page international news. We had somehow made it to Texas, but were about to lose our money, property, and potential citizenship. My sweeping saga will take you from snowy Canada to the sunbaked lands of Mexico, and on to the unique Llano Estacado of West Texas. If you like historical fiction that has relevance to today’s immigration battles, you’ll love this book. And if you’ve heard the phrase, “It’ll take an act of Congress,” I lived it. Just ask President Carter! Check out my book trailer on my Author Profile Page. And take a look at my website: SeminoleTheBook.Com.

The Myth of the American Dream by D.L. Mayfield

The Myth of the American Dream by D.L. MayfieldEnter for a chance to win 1 of 25 ARCs of The Myth of the American Dream by D. L. Mayfield!

★ Publishers Weekly starred review.

Affluence, autonomy, safety, and power. These are the central values of the American dream. But are they compatible with Jesus' command to love our neighbor as ourselves? In essays grouped around these four values, D. L. Mayfield asks us to pay attention to the ways they shape our own choices, and the ways those choices affect our neighbors. Where did these values come from? How have they failed those on the edges of our society? And how can we disentangle ourselves from our culture's headlong pursuit of these values and live faithful lives of service to God and our neighbors?

In Bed with the Earl by Christi Caldwell

In Bed with the Earl by Christi CaldwellChristi Caldwell, USA TODAY bestselling author of the Wicked Wallflowers series, combs London’s underground and finds romance and danger for a missing lord and the lady who loves him.

To solve a mystery that’s become the talk of the ton, no clues run too deep for willful reporter Verity Lovelace. Not even in the sewers of London. That’s precisely where she finds happily self-sufficient scavenger Malcom North, lost heir to the Earl of Maxwell. Now that Verity’s made him front-page news, what will he make of her?

Kidnapped as a child, with no memories of his well-heeled past, Malcom prefers the grimy spoils of the culverts to the gilded riches of society. Damn the feisty beauty who exposed the contented tosher to a parade of fortune-hunting matchmakers. How to keep them at bay? Verity must pretend to be his wife. She owes him.

The intimacy of this necessary arrangement—Verity and Malcom thrust together in close quarters—soon sparks an irresistible heat. But when the charade ends, the danger begins. Will love be enough to protect them from a treacherous plot devised to ruin them?

Brooklyn Hewett hasn’t set foot in Cape Harbor for fifteen years—not since an accident claimed the love of her life, Austin Woods. Desperate to move forward, Brooklyn has focused on raising her daughter for the past fourteen years. But when the opportunity comes along to renovate the old Driftwood Inn, Brooklyn knows it’s time to go home.

But it won’t be easy. For one, Austin’s best friend, Bowie Holmes, still lives in Cape Harbor. Brooklyn hasn’t quite been able to forget him: not since the night they spent together—the same night they both lost Austin. Separated by tragedy and guilt, they’re brought together by the Driftwood project. And as they rebuild the inn, they discover they’re also rebuilding something else.

Brooklyn’s always been desperate to move on, not knowing that she first needs to reconcile past transgressions. She can’t forget, but she can forgive—Austin, Bowie, and herself—on her way toward long-awaited happiness.

Little America by Epic Magazine

Little America by Epic MagazineEnter for a chance to win 1 of 25 copies of LITTLE AMERICA!

From the pages of Epic magazine come the true stories that Inspired the Apple Original Series.

Includes nearly a hundred color photographs and a Foreword by Kumail Nanjiani.

Nearly everyone in America came from somewhere else. This is a fundamental part of the American idea―an identity and place open to everyone. People arrive from all points distant, speaking a thousand languages, carrying every culture, each with their own reason for uprooting themselves to try something new.

Everyone has their own unique story. Little America is a collection of those stories, told by the people who lived them. Together, they form a wholly original, at times unexpected portrait of America’s immigrants―and thereby a portrait of America itself.
