Letters From Heroes – Edward T. Cook, Author

Letters from Heroes
‘Dearest Ruth,
I am working tonight until midnight and will be thinking about you and wishing I could be by your side. To me it seems like eternity since the last time I saw you. Can’t help but remember what a soldier told me once, “This is a lonesome war.”
I’m a baby boomer so I was around during the Viet Nam war. Many of my friends were drafted, went off to fight this war and some didn’t come back. And many of those that did come back live to this day with the nightmares of what they went through and saw. With the problems going on in today’s world, many of us have friends and family serving in the military or know someone who does. We’re constantly seeing news reports about roadside bombings that have taken the life of one or more of our brave soldiers. We feel their pain as they deal with being miles away from family and friends. We also feel the pain of the families and friends knowing their loved ones are in such grave danger.
Letters from Heroes is exactly that… letters written to loved ones by soldiers fighting to help keep the world safe. As I read these letters I felt as if I was the one receiving them. Most letters were fairly upbeat but if you read between the lines you find feel the loneliness, hunger, sickness and fear. You also feel the dependency that each soldier places and accepts from their fellow soldiers who have become both their closest friends and protectors.
Letters from Heroes is a very touching book that will at times make you smile and cry. Read this book and you will read the true feelings of soldiers around the world as they do what they feel must be done to protect. These men and women are truly the real HEROES of the world.

Synopsis:
raynaofnightwindIn the troubled land of Taren rules a bitter, oppressive regent named Nephredom, who alone maintains the Gate a Psi-magical barrier that contains thousands of mutated beasts, that were once men. However, the strain of keeping the Gate has pushed Nephredom to the edge of madness, and it is only a matter of time before the Gate opens.

Into this world comes an outsider. Following a bizarre lightning storm, college student Rayna Powell finds herself lost and alone in Taren with only her stubborn instincts and logical mind to guide her. She is a student of science, but what she experiences in Taren defies science, and forces her to come to terms with the unknown powers growing inside her. Many of the people of Taren believe Rayna to be a Power –the greatest kind of mage, who holds wields the legendary magic chaotic. Treachery and political strife run rampant as opposing factions clash, with Rayna caught in the middle.

She reluctantly joins forces with a mysterious woman with a bounty (imposed by Nephredom himself) on her head, who in exchange for Rayna’s help promises to help Rayna in her quest to return home. However, as they flee and hide from Nephredom’s red-robed minions, the price of the stranger’s help may be higher than what Rayna is willing to pay.
Come, brave souls…the world of Taren beckons.

Margaret and David A Love Story by Jerry Pat Bolton

August 7, 2009 at 9:03 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , )


 

Margaret and David A love SToryIt is eighty years after America’s second civil war, although some called it a race war. The war was won by a faction of a homegrown Muslim group and the story begins with a young female college student becoming concerned with the way the Anglo saxton’s, Mexicans and other non-Muslims are being treated.

 

 

“Margaret and David: A Love Story,” is a 285 page circumspect story which takes its presumption from history. It is a love story with political ramifications and social impact. After America’s second civil war, fanatical Muslims seized power. “Margaret and David: A Love Story” is the story of tragic interracial love which develops as a nation grows to understand that bigotry and suspicion are tools for oppression and hate no matter where it is found. This is a love story of hope and devotion in the face of hopelessness and despair; a story which blur the lines of our multi-racial society. “Margaret and David: A Love Story” is about forbidden passion, political upheaval, treachery and hate.
