Pages: 200
Genre: Drama, Comedy

Comedy, jealousy and intrigue take center stage as a small town prepares for an ACLU lawsuit over a sign that reads FAITH, Hometown of Jesus Christ. A lightning-fast read, the turn of the last page will have you wishing your stay in Faith could have lasted just a few more days, or at least that you had picked up a Jesus-in-the-Box or a poster of the town’s super-hot mechanic Johnny Cain.

The town of Faith has found religion, and no one is happier than Father O’Brien, who was down to one parishioner. Now the confessional lines are blocks long, and the oatmeal cookie crosses are selling like hotcakes. At the 4th of July parade the mayor’s 12-year-old son survived the mock crucifixion with only a broken arm and mild head trauma. Everyone give it up for Faith, Hometown of Jesus Christ.

Someone’s plotting the town’s first murder and the mill has just been robbed of an ungodly sum. There’s a cross burning on  a motel lawn and everyone is sleeping around. Yes, the town of Faith has got problems, but no one is more confused than Bobby Ray whose ex-girlfriend has just returned. Everyone, let us pray.

Historical Romance – A Mansion on the Moon: A Guam Love Story

A Mansion on the MoonA Mansion on the Moon: A Guam Love Story
By C. Sablan Gault
Publisher: Xlibris
ISBN: 978-1514427057
ASIN: B018ZJHKYG
Pages: 276
Genre: Historical Romance

Set in the tumultuous period of Guam history, between the Spanish-American War and World War II, the lives and loves of three Chamorro women unfold amid the changes and challenges around them. Sixteen-year old Amanda falls of a navy seaman who leaves her with child. Her daughter Sylvia grows up an illegitimate orphan. Yet she finds happiness with Tino Camacho, who loves her despite her scandalous background. Life teaches their daughter, the level-headed Vivian Camacho, that falling for an American navy man is futile, like reaching for the moon.

Cultural and racial prejudices increase the distance. Vivian avoids such futility until the handsome Philip Avery, an up-and-coming naval engineer, enters her life as an upstairs tenant newly assigned to Guam. Vivian falls in love with him but knows nothing can come of it. Philip is from a different world, one of wealth, rank, and privilege. Vivian is a simple island girl who lives under naval government rule. Philip is a man well beyond her reach. He is as distant from her world as the moon; he is the mansion there. Philip falls in love also, but his career comes first. Both deny their feelings for each other; their love cannot be. But love knows no distance, sees no differences.

Pages: 303
Genre: Contemporary Fiction, Family Drama

As a small boy, Alex becomes ensnared in the schemes of his mother, Cathlean, as she seeks to entrap a white British soldier, John, and “marry up” to improve her status in life. Her plan comes to fruition when John becomes obsessed with his black wife, marries her, then takes her and her son away from her native country of Belize to live in England. Cathlean becomes the society woman in England but begs her husband to return to Belize so she can show off her new status to her friends and fellow “good-time” girls. They return ten years later, but an unhappy Alex seeks solace in the arms of Sherrette. They fall head over heels but soon find their own problems as fast-paced revelations affect their fragile relationship. Told in a first-person view of life in Dangriga, Belize, young Alex’s story reflects on the color of his pain as he seems to bear the brunt of Cathlean’s selfish brand of pain that she calls love.

Love Pour Over Me is a powerful, inspirational story about restored love amid heart wrenching contrasts.

Raymond’s father, the only parent who stays to fend for him, struggles with alcoholism. His mother abandoned him when he was two years old. Raymond’s track and field successes make him one of America’s top middle-distance runners, earning him a scholarship to a prestigious university. But, it’s at college, where his life is supposed to take off, that things really start to get dicey for Raymond. Right away, he meets a motley sort of friends, each with an intriguing story of his own. Just when Raymond thought he was free from his alcoholic father, he finds himself pulled into an unresolved murder.

Contemporary Fiction/Drama – The Game That Never Ends

the-game-that-never-endsThe Game That Never Ends
A Story of Love and Games
By David Adamson Harper
Publisher: Ajijic Books Publishing
Published: October 2016
ISBN: 978-0984826353
ASIN: B01N02H2NF
Pages: 314
Genre: Contemporary Fiction, Drama, Romantic Action

In 1953 Sandy and Alex meet and fall in love in Adelaide, South Australia. She comes from a wealthy Catholic family and he is the son of a shopkeeper and an Anglican. Her mother has marriage plans for her and takes Alex to Italy to keep them apart. He goes to Oxford University where he achieves great success in cricket and rugby football. For the next seven years their love has to overcome many conflicts and is sorely tested by a tragic event and her Catholicism. In 1961 now working in San Francisco and believing Alex lost to him forever, Sandy falls in love and marries Kate but Alex, now finally free of her marriage, returns to him plunging his life into chaos. Will he be able to bring an end to this never ending game?

The Game That Never Ends: A Story of Love and Games will appeal to both male and female readers because it’s a story about a young man’s of love, lost and found with religious conflict, abortion and his success as a cricket and rugby player.

Recent Praise for The Game That Never Ends:

“I wasn’t sure if I would like this book as I understood that while it was an adult love story, and I emphasize adult, there were sequences about games that I knew nothing about. The author weaves cricket and rugby football into this love story and I found that they added great interest. I suspect that the author wrote from life and what an interesting life it was. His descriptions of San Francisco in the 1960s as well as Oxford, London, Siena and Stockholm were delightful.

Most love stories I read are written by women with women as the main character and it was eye opening to read about it from a man’s side. The author has a fast paced style and I enjoyed every minute of the book. I finished it at two in the morning in just three days. I was hoping the game would never end.” – Early Reviewer, Mary Hadfield, of Yonkers, NY
