    THE GREAT TEXAS DANCE: The Tales of Zebadiah Creed, Book 2

    THE GREAT TEXAS DANCE: The Tales of Zebadiah Creed, Book 2

    Zebadiah Creed tells a tale of the Texas Revolution, not as history, but as a personal portrayal of men and the consequences of their decisions.  Sometimes those decisions were made during the savagery of battle, but most of the time they were made in quiet, their desperate acts allowing them no way out other than through loyalty and friendship, or ultimate betrayal.







    Texas Dance (The Tales of Zebadiah Creed, Book Two) continues the saga of Zebadiah Creed. Zebadiah finds himself at the Alamo in the last days before the fall, beside such Texas legends as Jim Bowie, William Travis and Davy Crockett. His luck holds as he and his pal, Grainger, are sent  away from the battle with urgent messages for reinforcements to General Sam Houston. 







    The reader follows Zebadiah on his journey to the Texas  town of Gonzales, and on to the doomed town of Goliad. He must thread his way through the intrigue of conflicting loyalties and perilous escapes on his journey to complete his mission to Sam Houston. Zebadiah finds his own truth and loyalties are tested. He is never really sure who is his friend or who is his foe. 







    The dance of Tejanos, Texians, the Mexican army and the American politicians weave together a complicated waltz orchestrated by greed, passion, slavery and its foes. 







    Jackson has given us a new look at the Texas revolution…what started it, who stood to gain, and who its real heroes were.

    AMERICAN WINGS, IRANIAN ROOTS by Kristin Orloff

    AMERICAN WINGS, IRANIAN ROOTS by Kristin Orloff

    https://www.amazon.com/American-Wings-Iranian-Kristin-Orloff/dp/1574725017









    The book is a true story about a woman writer (the author) in California who befriends an Iranian coworker, Reza Abedi.  Their sons play on the same little league baseball team. Over the course of time, Reza tells the author his story of defecting from Iran.    







    Reza is a gold medal winning wrestler. On the last night of the 1982 Military World Wrestling Championships, he grips his gold medal, knowing that American wrestlers wait minutes away to help him defect. He is torn between choosing between his own freedom and the possible revenge killing of his thirteen year-old brother locked in Ayatollah Khomeini's prison.







    The subplot of the book is what happens to his family, left in Iran while he pursues his dream of freedom.  The book opens a door on the war-torn history of Iran, what Khomeini promised and the reality of what wasn’t delivered.







    Reza's inspiring story celebrates honor, family and freedom. After he leads bloody battles in the 1979 Iranian Revolution and serves in the Air Force, he desires a fate beyond the suffocating suppression of Ayatollah Khomeini's Iran. 







    Beyond the images of the blindfolded American hostages, the bearded cleric Ayatollah Khomeini and the controversial President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, there are millions of men, women and children who desire to live with freedom and dignity. This story is their voice.

    The Last Merry Go Round by C.L. Charlesworth

    The Last Merry Go Round by C.L. Charlesworth

    https://www.amazon.com/Last-Merry-Go-Round-ebook/dp/B07ZXBX4WX/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=the+last+merry+go+round&qid=1593720824&sr=8-1









    This is the story of how a woman succumbs to an abusive relationship and finds her way to freedom from it. The author took her inspiration for the novel from an unforgettable moment she witnesses between a couple in a car stopped at a stoplight.







    There are three letters when put together that can change your life—they can either bring happiness or sadness. The letters spell the word Y– E– S. When spoken lovingly, Y-E-S means everything. When fear underlies the answer, Y-E-S becomes a trap with ominous consequences. For Diane Fletcher, a commitment to Y-E-S has left her dangling on a tightrope between sanity and insanity. Despite children she loves, and an opulent lifestyle, saying yes to twenty-eight years of marriage with Richard has brought very little happiness. Too many secrets permeate Diane and Richard’s relationship. Guilt, alcohol, and sedatives are Diane’s safety net when she falls. Regular visits to a psychiatrist have done little more than put Diane back on the tightrope. Richard has other coping mechanisms. He is devoted, and at the same time, severe, ambitious, callous, and vindictive. How different Diane and Richard have grown together. Raw emotions, unthinkable actions, and an explosive secret threaten any pretense for their marriage. The Last Merry Go Round peels back the skin of a volatile marriage with dark secrets, revealing what happens to the family when the secrets explode.

    BOOK 1 THE GLOAMING: Resolve fades with the Light







    Is it worse to deny a distressing truth or live with the terror of it? Exhausted and tormented, Kandorl sets out in desperation to find the only other person who will acknowledge the impending invasion. The latest in a series of crimes sees Rianthan Pall finally claim a prize worth the effort. Murdering Petran, the lord of Blackford was the easy part. Escaping the wrath of the king’s Champion, Braster, who sought to prevent Petran’s death, sees Pall exceed his own treacherous limits. With the threat of the invasion looming, Kandorl finds himself surrounded by those too entrenched in denial to acknowledge it beyond their whispers of ‘the storm’. With Blackford in chaos in the aftermath of the lord’s death, Kandorl gathers his bemused companions and abandons his lonely vigil to search for Braster, the man who set him the task to prepare for the invasion. As their journey across a brutal land forces the companions to re-define their beliefs and morality, whilst seeking to overcome the traumas they encounter, Kandorl realizes he is as desperate to find Braster for his own salvation as he is for his friends to find theirs. Masquerading as Saul, Rianthan Pall resolves to infiltrate Kandorl’s group, with the party’s healer, Medral, and her ability to feed his addiction, as the greatest prize of all. With Kandorl fixated on his own obsession, it is the storm he never saw coming which threatens to sunder his world.

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B084HP4DHQ?notRedirectToSDP=1&ref_=dbs_mng_calw_1&storeType=ebooks









    Should truth be allowed to subvert the comfort of a belief? 







    As they become thrall to both Rianthan Pall and the release from suffering his addiction offers, each of the companions struggle to ward off their own kind of oblivion. For Kandorl, it is from a chance encounter that another source of salvation is revealed. 







    At the ancient citadel, the Mount, the fighters of the most powerful group in Aledin prepare to make a stand against the forces of the invasion, not out of duty or compassion, but simply for the immortality the glory of doing so would bring. 







    Sacrifices are made as what remains of Kandorl’s party reaches the end of the search for the king’s Champion, Braster. Kandorl attempts to sever the cords of attachments to those he loves in pursuit of the peace acceptance offers. Not all attachments are so easily abandoned.
