The Fledgeling by Frances Faviell (Dean Street Press) 4.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 8 hours ago

'I can't go back. I'd rather die -- I'd rather be dead.' Neil Collins is going AWOL from his National Service - for the third time. Twice he has served time for previous desertions and been sent back, despite being hopelessly unsuited to military life. This time, terrorized by a bullying fellow soldier determined to escape himself, Neil intends to make his escape a permanent one. He heads to London, to the dreary, claustrophobic rooms where his twin sister, Nonie, and their dying grandmother live, periodically invaded by prying neighbours, a little girl who has befriended Mrs Collins, a curious social worker, and other uninvited visitors. The Fledgeling (1958) traces the single day following Neil's desertion, and its impacts on Neil, Nonie, the tough-as-nails Mrs Collins, and others. Each of the characters comes vividly alive in Faviell's sensitive and observant prose. At times containing all the tension of a thriller, at others a profound drama of familial turmoil, Faviell's third and final novel is dramatic, compelling, and emotionally wrenching. This new edition features an afterword by Frances Faviell's son, John Parker, and additional supplementary material. 'A writer of unusual skill and delicacy in suggesting nuances of feeling and of character' Orville Prescott 'She writes with a sharpness of outline which would not shame Simenon.' J.W. Lambert, Sunday Times

Virtue at Market Price: A Saucy Tale of Airborne Pirates and Sins Personified (Empyreal Privateer Trilogy Book 1) by M.E. Meegs (Lycophos Press) 4.0 Stars (18 Reviews)    Price verified 9 hours ago

In April 1924, airship pirates descend on the luxury liner S.S. Paris and make off with a bounty of young female captives. When the various authorities appear powerless to act, one man steps forward, pledging himself to recover said booty and thereby render American womanhood secure. Unfortunately for all concerned, that man is E. Pluribus Van Slyke... Motivated by his twin appetites for personal enrichment and female companionship, this transoceanic con man and cashiered naval officer deftly persuades a succession of equally ignoble characters of his suitability for the task. Then, given command of a decrepit airship, Van Slyke heads into the empyrean with a crew of half-wits, misfits, and felons. But this voyage into the unknown is doubly so, for it soon becomes obvious the pirates who raided the Paris descended from fictional skies. In this parallel world our would-be hero finds himself at the mercy of rum-running cutthroats and throat-cutting buccaneers. Will he survive his confrontation with the fastidious Jack Tigue, a pirate renowned for his tasteful wardrobe and his habit of eviscerating opponents? Not to mention the anachronistic Jean Lafitte and his diabolical manicure of torture? Or outlive the perilous meal of passion served by a demonstrative Tortuga innkeeper? Barely. But most dangerous of all is yet to come: Captain Bonnet, the mad pirate of Barbados. For on departing his company, Van Slyke finds himself betrothed to not one, not two, not three, but five of the Mortal Sins!

Uncle Jerry To Win: a novel by Steven Kunes (Back Bay Books / Little, Brown and Company) 5.0 Stars (2 Reviews)    Price verified 4 hours ago

A spectacular look at the life of an aspiring Hollywood actress in the 1980s over a 3-month period. In 1987, author Steven Kunes began his morning visits to the Alfred Coffee Shop on Melrose Place in L.A. He soon found himself seated within earshot of a regular group of aspiring young actresses... and couldn't believe the things he overheard. It didn't take long for Kunes to make notes of these conversations, which he did in the composition book he carried specifically for this mission. Over time, one by one, the actresses would disappear, only to be replaced by a new Hollywood arrival. When one composition book was filled, Kunes began another -- and in 1992 these journals would be packed in a box only to sit in an attic for the next 25 years. When they popped up in the fall of 2017 during a move, Kunes decided to fashion a narrative from some of what was documented, and "Uncle Jerry to Win" is a result of that effort. Much has changed in the last three decades, and what appears in these pages may seem of little relevance in our virtual daily lives. However, frozen moments in time are the real precious jewels in this world, according to Robert Frost. In that spirit, get ready for an interesting ride. "This is an exceptional work of literature by a storyteller at the absolute top of his game." -- Anne Tyler

Replacing Gentry by Julie N. Ford (WiDo Publishing) 3.8 Stars (102 Reviews)    Price verified 4 hours ago

When Marlie attends a cadaver ball at Vanderbilt Medical School, she does not expect to actually see any cadavers. Or, that a strange apparition would issue her such a chilling message. Despite the cadaver's warning, a year later Marlie is married to Tennessee state senator, Daniel Cannon, and living in a plantation-style mansion with two step-sons. Add to the mix her growing suspicion that something is amiss with the death of Daniel's first wife, Gentry, and newlywed Marlie is definitely in over her pretty Yankee head. What begins as an innocent inquiry into her new husband's clouded past ends with Marlie facing a dangerous conspiracy. A modern twist on the classic Gothic romance novels like Rebecca and Jane Eyre, REPLACING GENTRY follows Marlie's precarious journey as she seeks to learn the truth about the man she married. "I can't tell you how impressed I was with both the writing and the intriguing plot. This was my first book of Julie's and definitely not my last. I really REALLY loved this one." Rachael Renee Anderson, women's fiction author "The plot is well crafted with so many unpredictable twists that I was left speechless. The story is beautifully written and well thought out... The characters are complex and well rounded. Marlie is just one of those characters you can't help but love." --Ever and Ever Sight "I loved every moment of Replacing Gentry, and read it straight through in one evening." --Amethyst Daydreams "One of the best aspects of this book is the atmosphere - a mysterious, rather dark foreboding prevails. This eerie feeling is usually subtle but is an integral component of the story. For me, it certainly helped define and set this story apart from similar books. The gothic element is constant, its intensity shifting according to the action occurring within a specific scene. It is difficult to maintain this sort of creepy uncertainty with such singular creativity but Ms. Ford did just that, with exceptional aplomb." --Laurie's ...

Before That Night: Caine & Addison Duet, Book One of Two (Unfinished Love series, 1) by Violet Duke 4.4 Stars (478 Reviews)    Price verified 4 hours ago

-- Now a USA TODAY Bestseller! -- Before that night, Addison Milan had been just a college dropout secretly raising her two young siblings in a beat-up minivan she'd bought with her first semester's tuition refund--the only money her addict mother hadn't taken off with when she'd abandoned them nearly two years ago. Before that night, Caine Spencer had been just a rough, gruff cop sent to check out the phoned-in claims of suspected child neglect involving the same woman he'd met just months prior when she'd first served him the city's worst diner coffee... which he'd been drinking daily ever since. Before that night, Addison would never have thought the man she'd been fighting hard not to fall for--her only friend in her new shadow of a life--would be in a position to rip her family apart. Before that night, Caine would never have believed any woman could make him fall head over heels, let alone make him feel so damn compelled to look the other way when it came to his job. Then that one perfect night changed everything. "Hot, sweet, and filled with tender moments, Violet Duke writes heroes who make me swoon!" -- New York Times bestselling author Kendall Ryan BEFORE THAT NIGHT (Bk 1 of 2) chronicles the events that take place seven years prior to EVERY NIGHT WITHOUT YOU (Bk 2 of 2), Caine & Addison's story of love, sacrifice, and the lengths one will run--and chase--when their past threatens their future.

Billy's War: A courageous little boy in war-torn Britain triumphs against the odds by Tony Whelpton 4.6 Stars (65 Reviews)    Price verified 4 hours ago

Billy's War by Tony Whelpton had me hooked instantly, and young Billy stole my heart... What can being at war mean to a nine-year-old? Not much, you might think, but if the boy in question is a war orphan... The date was Thursday 8 May 1941. Britain had been at war with Nazi Germany for 19 months. Billy Frecknall was only nine years old, but what a character he turned out to be! Like many boys of his age, Billy to all intents and purposes no longer had a Dad, because his father had enlisted in the army in the early days of the war, and Billy and his Mum didn't even know where he was. But that night saw the biggest air raid Billy's home town of Nottingham had experienced - an air raid which the author experienced personally and recalls vividly - and there were many casualties, including Billy's Mum. Billy was fortunate to survive, but life as an orphan, especially an orphan being brought up in an apparently hostile family, left a lot to be desired. What could a little boy in that situation do? Grin and bear it? That would be the only option for many. But what if the little boy in question is resilient, resourceful, intelligent and, above all, driven? Driven by a desire which becomes an obsession, and aided by the innocence of a child of his time, which meant that he trusted everyone until he had reason to think otherwise, he sets off to find his Dad. In the course of his quest he faces up to many obstacles that would have caused a less resourceful boy to blanch and give up, but he doesn't - and he is blessed also with a charisma that makes most people he encounters take his side without hesitation. If you read his story, you'll quickly see why Billy captures so many hearts and, with all the odds apparently stacked against him, wins his war. The sequel to Billy's War, called There's No Pride In Prejudice, was published in 2016, and is also available on Amazon! Why not buy both? It won't break the bank, and you'll be enthralled by both books!

THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES (Mobi Classics) by Arthur Conan Doyle (Musaicum Books) 4.4 Stars (1,558 Review)    Price verified 9 hours ago

This eBook has been formatted to the highest digital standards and adjusted for readability on all devices. Dr. James Mortimer asks Sherlock Holmes to investigate the death of his friend, Sir Charles Baskerville. Sir Charles was found dead on the grounds of his Devonshire estate and Mortimer now fears for Sir Charles's nephew and sole heir, Sir Henry Baskerville, who is the new master of Baskerville Hall. The death was attributed to a heart attack, but Mortimer is suspicious, because Sir Charles died with an expression of horror on his face, and Mortimer noticed "the footprints of a gigantic hound" nearby. The Baskerville family has supposedly been under a curse since the era of the English Civil War when ancestor Hugo Baskerville allegedly offered his soul to the devil for help in abducting a woman and was reportedly killed by a giant spectral hound. Sir Charles believed in the curse and was apparently fleeing from something in fright when he died.
