It was dark outside. So dark and so cold. And even more evil. It seemed that Lillian could feel the evil sinking right into her very bones. She crept through the darkened alleys. There was no one in sight and yet it felt like eyes were watching her from every direction……..

With endless nightmares about a dead child in addition to a marriage that is falling apart, Lillian Johnson is done with detective work. But, when a desperate man calls her husband, Phil, and asks them to solve two disturbing murders at the motel he owns, Lillian and Phil decide to take on one last case.

When they arrive at the small, ghost-like town called “Shadow Hills”, Lillian and Phil begin to wonder if they have taken on more than they can handle. From mysterious spectrums to noises that come from under the floorboards in her room, Lillian realizes that the Shadow Hills Motel may take away not only her sanity but also her life as she faces not only her worst fears but also the ghosts from her past.

With each mystery that they uncover, more danger seems to make itself known. Soon, it becomes a race against time as the two detectives realize that what they fear may be lurking within the motel itself and those they trust may not be what they seem.

Will they manage to get out of Shadow Hills alive? Or will Phil and Lillian become the victims of a town that seems to swallow up visitors and never let them go?

The Gospel According to Yeshua’s Cat

What if a cat told the story of Jesus of Nazareth? 



Maybe you’d listen. Cats don’t often share their thoughts.

What if a cat’s memories preserved a picture of Jesus lost by the early church long ago in its struggles to survive?

You’d find no dogma, only a cat’s simple love–and that’s a new story altogether.

Here’s what readers are saying:

“Imagine if the author of Watership Down had written The Shack!”

“For the first time, I finally understand what the point, the power, and the beauty of “he is risen” is about – hey, it only took 50 years and a cat to translate!”

“I know of one person who would have loved this book–and that is C. S. Lewis . . . A delightful combination of simplicity and deep theological insight.”

“The words left the pages and entered my heart, soul and spirit. Beautiful. Beautiful. Beautiful.”

The story of Yeshua’s CatMari is a cat living by her claws on the fringes of the Judean desert. Yeshua ben Yosef is a man with healing hands, seeking solitude in the wastes beyond Qumran. 



Their paths cross when Yeshua drives away a pack of wild dogs and rescues the wounded cat, carrying her in his arms to a wadi where he settles to pray. An unusual friendship grows up between them, deepened by Yeshua’s ability to speak with animals, and when he leaves the wilderness, she rides with him, hidden in a sling beneath his robe. More than any other, she is Yeshua’s companion in the quiet times. 



Mari narrates the life of Jesus of Nazareth from a cat’s eye-view, frequently losing the thread of his teaching as she drowses, focusing instead on their times alone. When crowds press close for healing, she withdraws behind the folds of his robes. On her own, she pursues a friendship with Mary Magdalene,and looks on as Yeshua transforms the very elements of Earth in his miracles.




Mari loves Yeshua beyond the wont of cats. But in loving him, she discovers loneliness and fear of loss. How can a cat who lives in the eternal Now cope with sudden awareness of the future, with all its uncertainty and pain? 



Still, in the end, all roads lead to the Passover festival in Jerusalem, where Mari experiences depths of wonder unsuspected by those caught up in the tumult around her.

The Cats of Rekemby C. L. Francisco

DESCRIPTION:

“We are the cats of Rekem, descended from the sacred cats of the Egyptian temple of Bast . . . gathered here to honor Yeshua ben Yosef, friend of cats–He Who Brings Life to the Earth . . .”

The Cats of Rekem opens in the fabled city of Rekem (Petra, Jordan), capital of ancient Nabataea. Francisco brings Rekem to swirling, glittering life, in a kaleidoscopic pageant of exotic characters from a lost culture that reached its peak during the days of Jesus of Nazareth. On the fringes of Rekem’s urban clamor, cats quietly sun themselves, eavesdropping and speaking their thoughts into human minds as the need arises.

25 years have passed in Rekem since the child Yeshua’s rescue (in A Cat Out of Egypt) by Zaidan, a powerful caravan master, and Tikos, an Egyptian priestess fleeing Egypt with a pregnant temple cat from Bubastis. Tikos and Zaidan have married. The Egyptian cats have interbred with wild cats from the hills, and their descendants settled throughout the city with their chosen humans.

In an age of relentless empire building, the independent Nabataeans stubbornly hold to their own traditions, defying the advancing Roman Empire and Israel’s grasping Herod Antipas. Yet Rekem is increasingly caught up in the tide of strange new religions sweeping through the Roman world. Although Zaidan, Tikos, and their family worship Yeshua’s One God and cherish their ties with Yeshua–both before and after his resurrection–the dark mysteries of Isis seduce their daughter Hinat into the goddess’ temple. When Tikos steps in to protect Hinat, King Aretas is enraged by her insult to the gods who stand behind his throne. All of Zaidan’s clan lie beneath the threat of his simmering wrath.

Into this turmoil stumbles a bemused young Apostle Paul, smuggled out of Damascus by Zaidan’s sons, Yeshua’s cat Mari, and Mary Magdalene. Still reeling from his vision on the Damascus road, Paul is painfully confused about what his new life will mean. But his arrival in Rekem attracts the palace’s attention, loosing a flood of scandal and violence that endangers everyone around him . . . as well as threatening his own future before it can even begin.

DESCRIPTION:

Cat Born to the Purple, 4th volume in the Yeshua’s Cats’ series, picks up the story from Yeshua’s Cat of a young woman who had been stoned. Yeshua healed her after sensing her presence, battered and barely alive, in the burning hills near Sepphoris, and named her Eliana, “God has answered my prayer.” He settled her in Cana with his friend Eli to keep her safe from her husband and mother-in-law, who had accused her falsely and incited the mob to stone her. Now she is beginning to put her life back together–except for the memory of her stoning, which she has walled away in darkness. Eli’s wife Rachel encourages Eliana’s extraordinarily gifts for weaving and needlework, hoping Eliana can make a living with her skills. But a year later, Eliana’s husband begins to suspect that she’s still alive, and Yeshua returns to help Eli find her a new place of safety.

Eliana accompanies Yeshua and Mari to the Phoenician coastal city of Acco. There her handwork impresses a prominent merchant of the royal purple murex dye. He offers her an apprenticeship in his workshop under the wing of a devout Jewish widow, sold into slavery after the rebellions at Sepphoris, but now a freedwoman living as an adopted member of the merchant’s family. While in Acco, Yeshua discovers that the merchant’s peculiar devotion to the goddess Bast has twisted the hearts of the many cats living in his house–cats descended from the sacred cats of the once great temple of Bast in Acco–convincing them that they are godlings in their own right. For the first time in his ministry, Yeshua reaches out to deliver non-human creatures ensnared by human wrong.

Eliana–now widowed, and her name altered to the Greek “Aeliana”–prospers in her new home, learning how to harvest and brew the priceless purple dye. A clever speaking kitten with a fascination for looms and a gift for dreaming becomes her constant companion. After meeting a young Anatolian merchant, Aeliana finally begins to believe in the possibility of love, in spite of the constant threat of a co-worker’s violence. Still, although she follows the One’s light as best she can, she is shattered again by the terrifying evil loosed on the world at Yeshua’s death. But together with the whole of Creation, Aeliana’s life is made whole at last in the miracle of the Resurrection.

DESCRIPTION:

Award-winning author of The Otherness Factor takes us to Detroit during the turbulence of the Sixties.

Detroit,––July 25, 1967, two days after Detroit cops raid a blind pig (speakeasy) inciting the biggest race riot in American history. Maggie Soulier wakes to a deejay’s cry for ‘anyone left in the city’ to hustle pop to police sweltering at highway checkpoints leading into the firestorm.

Maggie’s not a hippie chick looking for a cause, she’s the daughter of notorious French Canadian secessionist radicals who disappeared without a trace. A grad student on a visa, Maggie covers absences at a pizzeria to support her stateside civil rights work. Delivering soft drinks to keep armed men from having a meltdown sounded simple. That was before she met Sam Tervo on the wrong side of a gun––before she offered him a Coke, before shared laughter ricocheted against shrieking sirens and a darkening sky.

Sam, a fierce human rights advocate, thinks he’s being targeted by mafia types who want something; the question is what. More and more he relies on his friend Clyde Webster, a black civil rights leader and Maggie’s co-worker, to guide him through this underworld. Cold sober in the ash, soot and rubble, Clyde pulls together The Eights: eight working-poor, part-time activists, to curb white flight and integrate the burbs. Maggie and Sam, the token whites.

With the intrigue, corruption, brutality and bigotry, Maggie, Sam, Clyde and The Eights experience the love, laughter, irony and self-reflection of blacks and whites redefining friendship and transforming the world with pocket change.
