No one could have planned for this. Lara Carson left her family and boyfriend Flynn eighteen years ago without a word to anyone. Why has no one heard from her since? Does it mean anything that she’s suddenly reappeared in Bath just in time for her ex-best friend Evie’s wedding? And what about Flynn? Even the most eagle-eyed observer can’t tell whether he’s happy to see her, or just stunned. While secrets pile up on secrets, and the gossip mill wings into high gear, the brand-new life Lara’s searching for becomes ever more elusive.

A Winter Nosegay: Being Tales for Children at Christmastide


A Winter Nosegay: Being Tales for Children at Christmastide


$3.99


ONCE upon a time, long before people were able to learn what they wanted to know from printed books, long before children had pretty pictures to tell them tales, there lived an old student with his pupil. Together they spent all the day in poring over musty old books and papers, trying to find out why the sun was hot; and in the night-time they might always be seen gazing at the sky, counting how many stars there were there. They were very curious folk, and wanted to know the reasons for all sorts of out-of-the-way things that everybody else was content to know the mere facts of, such as why birds have two wings and not three, why crocodiles have no fins, seeing that they can swim in the water, and many other matters that would not interest sensible beings. They always had at their side a young owl, and a serpent, toothless and blind with age; for they thought that youthful observation and aged craftiness were most suitable companions for them in their labours. If at any time old Fusticus, for so the old student was named, got dispirited in his work, or felt inclined to give it up as a hopeless task, he had but to turn round in his chair, and there behind him sat his owl, who seemed to say, as he cocked his head on one side, “Never despair, success only comes after long perseverance!” Or if he stuck fast at any point, and could make no progress, one glance at the old serpent made him think, “Snakes wait whole days and nights on watch for their prey; why should I give in?” And, strange to say, with a little more attention and care, he always did get over his smaller difficulties. But at last old Fusticus got weary of his long studies, as he seemed never to find an answer to any one of the questions he had set himself; and he was about to give them up altogether, when he came across a curious passage in the old tome in which he was reading. For a long time he could not make it out at all, but after deep thought and consultation with his pupil, he discovered that it wa

American Shaman, Book 1


American Shaman, Book 1


$0.99


American Shaman, Book One is an acutely written page-turner for those who grew up reading about magic but then grew up – now they are looking for a more real magic. American Shaman, Book 1 draws upon the ancient stories of the world’s oldest religion, shamanism, to tell the story of Geser, a trainee shaman who must undergo the third and final trial to become a full-fledged shaman. His tutor is the owl-spirit Icci. His friends and allies include the beautiful Alma Mergen, a junkie who Geser saves from addiction, Steve, a young, enthusiastic skatepunk who never learned fear, and Verdad, the conguero leader of Geser’s drum circle. The central conflict is between young Geser and his boss Raven, leader of a car theft ring. But the real conflict is within Geser himself, who must decide whether he wants to be a white shaman, who deals only with Spirit Ground and cannot heal, or a Black Shaman, who reconciles Spirit and Human Ground in order to heal the sick. The book incorporates imaginative graphics that include photos, contemporary illustrations and ancient Siberian drum paintings – a book that doesn’t feel like a book.

American Solace: Passage


American Solace: Passage


$4.99


American Solace is a genre bender, a prehistoric fantasy with a twist. Sort of People of the Wolf meets the post-apocalypse.”In his debut novel, Cook melds a futuristic post-apocalyptic story with a classic coming-of-age quest tale, adding interest with authentic details from Native American culture, such as herbal healing and arrow-making. Owl and Willow’s young love is fairly standard but warm. Cook depicts the Peeyankihsionki with appreciation for the tribe’s multilayered politics and offers some intriguing future history… delivers a solid coming-of-age adventure.” – Kirkus ReviewsA threat loomed in the forests surrounding their town. The trees tossed about ominously and river pools bubbled where they should only mirror the moon’s perfection. Storehouses were dwindling, fishermen were coming home with empty baskets, and for the first time since entering the sixth world, farmers were clearing new fields. And they were finding peculiar artifacts in the soil, though the people had little chance to discern their origin or nature. As quick as they could, the priests would come and snatch them up and hide them away, saying only that the artifacts were from another age, definitely not meant for the layperson’s eyes. Little Owl was content to fish and amuse himself by collecting the shells of freshwater mussels, but a long-held mystery about the end of the last age and their deliverance into the present seemed ready to unfold before his eyes. He breaks taboos, disturbs evil spirits, garners the affection of the war chief’s daughter, and raises the ire of his elders. They say it is time for his Rite of Passage, where he will learn what totem will govern and guide the rest of his life. But his uncle recommends an alternative, a vision quest in which his nephew will discover his true totem. However, it is an ancient practice which no one since the last age has undertaken, so it will likely be more dangerous than the Rite. But at least it will be authentic. Reluctantly, Owl a

An Occurrence at Owl Creek (Annotated)


An Occurrence at Owl Creek (Annotated)


$2.99


An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge” or “A Dead Man’s Dream” is a short tale by American author Ambrose Bierce. Originally published by The San Francisco Examiner in 1890, it was first collected in Bierce’s 1891 book Tales of Soldiers and Civilians. The story, which is set during the Civil War, is famous for its irregular time sequence and twist ending. Bierce’s abandonment of strict linear narration in favor of the internal mind of the protagonist is considered an early example of experimentation with stream of consciousness. It is Bierce’s most anthologized story. This edition has been formatted for your reader, with an active table of contents. The work has also been annotated, with additional information about the book and the author’s life, including an overview, plot summary, similar stories, adaptations, influence, biographical and bibliographical information.

An Owl on Every Post


An Owl on Every Post


$29.99


Sanora Babb experienced pioneer life in a one-room dugout, eye-level with the land that supported, tormented and beguiled her; where her family fought for their lives against drought, crop-failure, starvation, and almost unfathomless loneliness. Learning to read from newspapers that lined the dugout’ s dirt walls, she grew up to be a journalist, then a writer of unforgettable books about the Great Depression and the Dust Bowl, most notably Whose Names Are Unknown. The author was seven when her parents began to homestead an isolated 320-acre farm on the western plains. She tells the story through her eyes as a sensitive, fearless young girl who came to love the wind, the vastness, the mystery and magic in the ordinary. This evocative memoir of a pioneer childhood on the Great Plains is written with the lyricism and sensitivity that distinguishes all of Sanora Babb’ s writing. An Owl on Every Post, with its environmental disasters, extreme weather, mortgage foreclosures, and harsh living conditions, resonates as much today as when it first appeared. What this true story of Sanora’ s prairie childhood reveals best are the values- courage, pride, determination, and love- that allowed her

Anticipation


Anticipation


$9.99


Anticipation is a book of poetry which, while touching on Marguerite Watkins’ upbringing in India, for the most part is inspired by her life as an adult in America and by her mother’s family stories. Her first book of poetry, Patterns in Henna, contained poems about her memories as the daughter of missionary parents in India and she has also written a memoir, Two Taproots, Growing Up in the Forties in India and America. The poems in this book deal with the next part of her life. The author has arranged her poetry into five sections. Section I deals with attitudes towards possessions – things that are more than things. II is about family, especially her mother’s New England relatives since Patterns in Henna has poems inspired by her father’s life. In III we hear other voices and see other places, including the author’s impressions when traveling. IV describes the circle of the Virginia seasons and includes several poems about hiking in the Blue Ridge Mountains. The poetry in V is more contemplative. The author is older now, more mellow, and comes full circle in her thoughts about life. Instead of describing them the author has chosen to share a sample poem from each of the five sections. Section I The Owl in the Christmas Tree As I crept down the stairs to plug in the Christmas lights before the children came down, two wide topaz eyes stared out from the tip of the cedar, a small owl barred brown and white with talons gripping the star. I woke the children,” Look,” I breathed, “.look, he must have come down the chimney. See the flakes of soot on the hearth.” We opened the door and nudged him with a rake until reluctantly he flew into an oak. These are the things you live for – not designer-wrapped gifts, the year-end bonus, the red velvet dress, but a moment of wonder, of surfeit – rose-breasted grosbeaks eating holly berries, wind rich with the spice of wild azaleas, full moon through river mist – the owl in the Christmas tree. Section II Aisle Eight, Ca
