To "Paradise" and Back

by Charles Sawikin

Incredible memoir of Chaim Sawikin, a sixteen-year-old Jewish boy who was separated from his family at the start of World War II and then survived in the Soviet labor camp system. As he confronts every life-threatening situation, he draws upon his instincts and resourcefulness, while trying to retain the essential humanity instilled by his parents and his socialist upbringing. With almost every incident turning upon a stroke of luck, Chaim, raised an atheist, begins to see the world as unhinged, devoid of pattern or justice. But the idea that all his and others' suffering was random, so hard to accept, brings him around to deeper thoughts about the role of fate or God in the world. Finally he looks back on these times with no answers, only more questions....

by Geri Glenn

Charlotte

Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve taken care of everyone around me, including my self-centered older sister, Anna.

John Adams: A Captivating Guide to an American Founding Father Who Served as the Second President of the United States of America

If you want to discover the captivating life of John Adams, then keep reading...Free History BONUS Inside!John Adams once wrote, “People and nations are forged in the fires of adversity.” That was very much Adams’ experience. Although he was often maligned, he didn’t deserve it. Having been born in the English colony of Massachusetts in 1735, he not only witnessed a new nation emerging from the shell of infancy, but he also participated in its growing pains. Adams was a man who was frequently asked to assume roles in which he had little experience, like that of a diplomat to France and England. In a sense, he was a part of the vanguard that the government had thrown into the fray. But why would the government choose him to represent their interests? Perhaps the main reason was that...

Emphatic (Soul Serenade Book 1)

by Kaylee Ryan

There comes a point in your life where you have to say enough is enough.

I wasted my college years on a guy who played with my head, played with my heart. I was blinded by the fairytale, the one that didn’t exist.

The day I gave up on the idea of happily ever after, my focus became me. Moving forward and establishing my career.

Until one day…

I didn’t expect him. My new boss, a six foot two, inked rock god. I believed I was working for the record label, I was wrong.

It’s impossible for me to keep my distance, believe me I’ve tried. He’s not who I expected him to be. He’s so much more he’s…Emphatic

Celebrated Native Americans

They are heroes and heroines of all manners in the often tragic, yet inspiring chronicle of The North American Native.Most—but not all—of the individuals whose lives are briefly described in this book were Chiefs. Some have become legends within American history and famous worldwide. But all were leaders in the immense struggle to preserve their treasured lands, customs, beliefs and way of life. With their tribesmen, they are intimately linked to America’s founding, westward expansion, and at times, the inhumane treatment they received at the hands of the United States Government.
