DESCRIPTION:

“One life will make the difference.” Macey Holsinger has heard that promise for as long as she can remember. But it hasn’t saved anyone yet, not even her little brother.

Little is known about the disease, except that it’s a rapid and absolute killer. Countless lives have been claimed in the last hundred years, and government scientists are working hard to stop the spread through human experimentation. Testing has killed nearly as many people as the disease and, to Macey at least, it seems like they’re no closer to a cure.

At sixteen, conformity to the government’s idea of “sacrifice for the greater good” is a difficult concept for Macey. Shocked by how many aspects of life the disease controls, she faces her own testing reluctantly.

Macey feels alone as questions plague her about things that are simply a way of life for most. Questions no one else thinks to ask. Why is the quest for a cure reason enough to ban things like flags and freedom of expression? How can death be justified with more death? In the end, how much will the cure cost, and why is Macey the only one who thinks the price…

A sailor and his family’s harrowing and inspiring story of their attempt to sail the treacherous Northwest Passage.
Sprague Theobald, an award-winning documentary filmmaker and expert sailor with over 40,000 offshore miles under his belt, always considered the Northwest Passage–the sea route connecting the Atlantic to the Pacific–the ultimate uncharted territory. Since Roald Amundsen completed the first successful crossing of the fabled Northwest Passage in 1906, only twenty-four pleasure craft have followed in his wake. Many more people have gone into space than have traversed the Passage, and a staggering number have died trying. From his home port of Newport, Rhode Island, through the Passage and around Alaska to Seattle, it would be an 8,500-mile trek filled with constant danger from ice, polar bears, and severe weather.
What Theobald couldn’t have known was just how life-changing his journey through the Passage would be. Reuniting his children and stepchildren after a bad divorce more than fifteen years earlier, the family embarks with unanswered questions, untold hurts, and unspoken mistrusts hanging over their heads. Unrelenting cold, hungry…

DESCRIPTION:

“A ripping read!” — Thomas Keneally, author of Schindler’s List

According to N.Y. Times best-selling thriller writer Nelson DeMille, Orinoco is “classical escape reading” with “the ingredients of a good old-fashioned adventure story.” Events move swiftly–from the board room of a New Orleans multinational to the jungles of Venezuela; from a high-stakes takeover battle waged with stock proxies to a primitive duel with machetes and blowguns in the thunderous shadow of Angel Falls.

Standing tall against these landscapes, in his ranch hat and tooled-leather boots, is the larger-than-life figure of Sam Warrender. An Oklahoma wildcatter turned maverick CEO, Sam has never yet walked away from a fight. After battling a corporate cabal led by his hand-picked successor, he hustles his twin-prop Cessna two-thousand miles south into Venezuela’s mesa-studded Gran Sabana to stop Caracas politicos and anti-globalist protesters from shutting down his company’s mining operation. Once on the ground, Sam finds a new perspective (and a surprising May-September romance), but even more enemies–including his Korean corporate rival, Duk-Won Lee, now actively blocking Sam’s every move. And a far more ruthless adversary awaits–an aging caraqueño guerrilla who has emerged from retirement to settle old scores with one last grand…

DESCRIPTION:

Four years ago life for Sophie Keech was perfect. A new start in Greece with Alekos, her boyfriend of just six weeks, removes Sophie from a mundane 9-5 job, takes her away from the difficult relationship she has with her mum, and gives her the opportunity and belief that she is finally doing something positive and exciting with her life.

But a lot can change in four years. An engagement, a domineering mother-in-law to be and the reality of life in Greece not being quite what Sophie imagined puts a strain on her relationship with Alekos.

When an accident forces Sophie back to the UK to look after her estranged mum, she has time to re-evaluate her life, her idea of family, where she wants to be and, most importantly, who she loves.
