LESSONS FROM LIFE by JEFF ROSENFELD 4.0 Stars (6 Reviews)    Price verified 17 hours ago

This is the first of four novels portraying the uplifting and timeless journeys of four generations of the Bird Family. This book is about the lifetime friendship between a seventy-five year old Holocaust survivor and an eighteen year old car accident survivor as well as their incredible experiences both before and after they met. Their will to live life to the fullest and capacity for love conquers all, even death. The novel is based in part upon my own true story and recovery from a serious car accident. KIRKUS REVIEWS An unlikely friendship is kindled when a young disabled man meets a Holocaust survivor. In this short novel, Rosenfeld weaves together the tragic, yet inspiring stories of two unlikely friends. Jonathan, 18, is a car-accident survivor and working to regain strength in his legs. Sarah, a Holocaust survivor with many emotional scars, searches for ways to live with a past that continually haunts her. When the two meet in a fitness-center Jacuzzi after swimming for rehabilitation, each opens up to reveal a tragic story of overcoming emotional and physical pain. Rosenfeld's novel moves quickly. The author advances the narrative and maintains momentum with the back-and-forth dialogue between the two characters. While the age difference between Jonathan and Sarah renders their relationship platonic, this age gap allows a distance that collapses all artifice. What the reader will find is a true sense of human connection between these characters--one that defies sex, gender and self-consciousness. At times, the reader may long for a more present-tense world. Much of the novel is occupied by back story, and the characters' present-time interactions are brief and in service to the delivery of past stories. Similarly, Jonathan and Sarah are often largely defined by their disabilities and past abuse, leaving little to present them as rounded characters except for their struggles and delicate treatment of one another. However, the author satisfyingly ...

Redeemer on the Roadside: Park Bench Stories: Book 2 by Shari Broyer 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 15 minutes ago

"There is nothing in this world that forgiveness cannot heal." Waya Ridge is a homeless man in his mid-forties who has no concern for anyone else -- only himself and where he's getting his next fix. He steals a bicycle from another homeless "friend" and takes off down the Pacific Coast Highway where a callous motorist rams into the back of the bicycle and continues on, despite sending helmet-less Waya flying headlong into the rocks on the cliffside just beyond the railing. It is a driver passing in the opposite direction who witnesses the hit-and-run and stops to rescue the broken man. Thus begins a new journey down a completely different road for Waya Ridge -- and his sister, Ahyoka Ridge, who has issues of unforgiveness for her brother.

A Friend of the Family by Nicola Thorne Price verified 38 minutes ago

'... combines the intriguing subjects of surrogacy and obsessive love - a dangerous cocktail of give and take.' Tina and Steve seem to be the golden couple: rich, good-looking, with everything they could want, except a child of their own. Tina is a very beautiful but temperamental former model. Steve is a successful businessman with international interests who also wants to develop his stately home in the country as a garden centre and leisure complex in order to give his wife an occupation. The lynchpin to this enterprise is Louise, solid, sensible and not unattractive, who has loyally and devotedly worked for Steve for years. She is convinced that Steve married the wrong woman and that he should have realised that she herself would have been his perfect partner. Her obsession with him, and her wish to be more closely bound to him, leads her to offer to be a surrogate mother to his much-wanted child by Tina. The consequences of this radical suggestion, and the effect it has on the relationships not only of the three people most intimately concerned but also their family and friends, are unforeseen and inevitably almost disastrous.

Taking Flight by Adrian Magnuson 4.7 Stars (1,084 Review)    Price verified 2 hours ago

Jeremy Walsh's parents assume he's been abducted by the elderly man he met on a cross-country flight, but it's the other way around. Two unlikely companions meet in midair: 13-year-old Jeremy, sent against his will by his career-absorbed father to spend the summer with his bipolar mother, and Harry, one-legged and afflicted with mid-stage Alzheimer's, who escapes the confinement of home for what may be his last adventure. Their journey begins, trailed by Harry's wife and Jeremy's parents, who threaten to cut it short. It's a race against time and circumstance. "In Adrian Magnuson's Taking Flight a curmudgeon losing his memory and a snarky teen fleeing his parents find a common passion in bird watching. Endearing characters, delightful story and a poignant final scene give this book wings along with the beautifully depicted birds." -- Frances Wood, author of Brushed by Feathers: A Year of Birdwatching in the West "Taking Flight is an evocative and moving contemporary novel. It is, at every level, a story about love. For one character it is a coming of age tale, for the other the end of an age. Both are runaways, yet each ultimately is searching for home. I highly recommend this heart-touching, beautifully written book." -- Andrea Hurst, president of Andrea Hurst Literary Management "Filled with well-developed, real-life characters, Taking Flight's heart-breaking but satisfying story hits on all cylinders: action, comedy, and emotion." -- Terry Persun, award winning author of Sweet Song
