Out of tragedies come heroes and miracles…
At 9:59 a.m. on September 11, 2001, Diane O’Connor’s life as a firefighter’s wife changes forever, shattering her faith. Four decades later, a note still hangs on her kitchen cabinet in Queens, the paper yellowed with age. Diane knows the scribbled sentences by heart; she’d left them the morning of 9/11 for her husband, Billy.
In the summer of 2041, Diane invites Friar Antonio Ortiz to her home. He is a man destined to become counsel to the first American pope–her son, Peter. Antonio asks no questions and arrives in secret, promising to wait nineteen years before passing Diane’s journal to Peter. Only then will Billy’s story be told, along with answers to Peter’s questions about his father’s last days.
“A true fictional tribute to the lives lost in 9/11. A beautiful and gut wrenching story…Miss Merlino weaves a flawless tale that will have you sobbing by the end of the book. With an incredible ending I didn’t see coming, this book will go down as being a classic.” –#1 New York Times Bestselling Author Rachel Van Dyken, author of The Bet
“For more than a decade writers have struggled to come to terms with the tragedy of September 11, 2001, and most have missed the mark–sentimental, tasteless, tone deaf. Linda Merlino’s Room of Tears takes on that horrific day in an entirely original way, combining Vatican politics, natural disasters, even the mysteries of Santeria to examine how the ripples from one brave firefighter’s demise grow into a tidal wave of world-changing consequences. Meditative, almost prayer-like, Room of Tears illuminates the search for meaning in tragedy, and comforts with the sense that, even in calamity, there is always a plan.” –Chris Belden, author of Shriver
“Room of Tears draws the reader in from the moment Father Antonio steps into Diane O’Connor’s house to unearth a deep and intriguing secret about 9/11 that ultimately affects the future of the papacy. Merlino vividly portrays the struggle and pain of one family in the days leading up to that fateful day and its aftermath, including an unexpected and compelling twist that turns the book into an instant page-turner. Great character development is matched by layered storytelling that weaves through despair and longing, yet strikes just the right balance of humor and intensity to make this tear-jerker a captivating read.” –Lisa Quintela, former Entertainment Weekly writer
“Linda’s heroines are real women, feminine, witty, intelligent, compassionate and not easily manipulated by circumstances but ready to face adversity with courage, each a fighter you definitely want on your side. Just wait till you meet Diane O’Connor…You’ll fall in love–I guarantee it.” –Jack Schmidt, two-time winner of International Hemingway Competition
“A complex book with lots of heart, a story in which every reader can find something that is tangible and relatable. The exquisite language and gripping narrative gets under your skin and into your heart. It is a timeless love story, with spiritual undertones, that explores the human condition and how it is affected by loss, longing and undying faith. I loved every word.” –Lauren Salkin, Priming Pamela – Shroud Magazine
“Room of Tears is multi-faceted – part suspense thriller, part ghost story, part futuristic novel – it is a powerful and moving story of love and loss, hope in the face of despair, and faith in a higher power that will overcome the unspeakable horrors of tragedy.” –Patricia F. D’Ascoli, Connecticut Muse
“I’ve just put down Room of Tears…and I am still sitting in that pool of shimmering light that a good book tosses over us…Merlino’s writing is that gorgeous…Merlino has built an original story that moves us through the still-fresh pain to a place of hope in the future. She makes us believe. She makes us believe in miracles.” –Zinta Aistars, editor-in-chief of The Smoking Poet

How differently would we live if we knew that every aspect of our lives was part of a beautiful and purposeful design by our Heavenly Father? Our lives would be much more fulfilling if we fully understood that the temptations and hardships that come into our lives are permitted by God to help us grow closer to Him.
Author Jacob Kodesh unveils the biblical reason why God permits Christians to go through tough situations in their lives. Relationship issues, finding a job, and finances are areas that we all have struggles in from time to time. Why is that?
While we are going through those tough and uncomfortable situations we pray, but God doesn’t seem to be listening. We trust Him, but it appears He’s letting us down. We believe His Word, but His promises are coming up seemingly empty for us.
All our lives we’ve been taught and prepared for the times when God is speaking to us and blessing us, but we aren’t as prepared for the times God seems silent in the midst of our need. It’s in these times of desperation and temptation when our faith is tried.
Hope is on the horizon, God has not and will never leave you nor forsake you especially in times of crisis in your life. This book discusses in depth God’s divine purpose for trials in the life of the Believer and what we must do in order to be blessed once we come out of the tough situation.

“A promising start to a complex, new Black Ops series,” Kirkus Reviews
Book One in the Black Flagged series:
As the most notorious member of the Department of Defense’s disbanded Black Flag program, Daniel Petrovich has taken extreme measures to protect his new life and keep his secrets buried.
Someone is trying to raise the fallen program from the ashes and bring Daniel back with it. Someone who holds the key to Daniel’s darkest secrets…and has pulled his strings before.
In exchange for the promise of a clean slate, and a chance to keep the life he has built with the woman he loves, Daniel agrees to carry out one final mission: the seemingly uncomplicated assassination of a confirmed terrorist financier.
Daniel’s life is about to disintegrate, as he becomes the focus of a relentless federal manhunt, and the target of a ruthlessly vengeful CIA agent. To survive, he’ll be forced to release a dark side he’d fought for years to suppress. A dark side critical to his former puppet master’s intricate plan to revive the Black Flag program.
Black Flagged lays the foundation for a gritty, unapologetic series exploring the often unceremoniously brutal and serpentine link between covert operations and government agency politics.

Adapted into a major movie starring Diane Lane and John Cusack! Soon to be a five-book series! “A hilariously original tale about dating and its place in a modern woman’s life.” -BookPage “This novel is a hoot.” -The Boston Globe
“Funny and pitch-perfect.” -Chicago Tribune
Life after divorce for Sarah Hurlihy consists of juggling her job as a preschool teacher and the demands of her interfering family. Then her bossy big
sister decides to place a personal ad for her: “Voluptuous, sensuous, alluring and fun. Barely 40 DWF seeks special man to share starlit nights. Must love dogs.”
Everybody wants Sarah to put the past behind her and take a bold step toward a fresh start. But when Sarah winds up with a lot of new men–and
rambunctious dogs–in her life, along with plenty of awkward situations, unexpected emotions, and not-so-easy decisions, she wonders whether those
mindless evenings sitting alone and watching The Brady Bunch were really all that bad… “[A] laugh-out-loud novel….a light and lively read for anyone who has tried to re-enter the dating scene or tried to `fix up’ somebody else.” -Boston
“If Must Love Dogs is any indication of her talents, readers will hope that Claire Cook will be telling breezy summer stories from the South Shore of
Massachusetts for seasons to come.”-The Washington Post
“In an age when whiny novels about 30-something “singletons” whose sole goal in life seems to be snagging a decent man, Must Love Dogs is a refreshing
antidote. . . .Reading about Sarah Hurlihy’s travails is like talking to a comedic, self-deprecating friend. Cook’s humor breezes through the pages as
she details the perils–and perks–of plunging back into the dating scene.” – Book Page
