East of Outback (Australian Destiny Series, Book 4)
1 East of Outback (Australian Destiny Series, Book 4)
Bethany House Publishers 1990 155661117X / 9781556611179 Paperback Good - has note inside cover 
The splendid and limitless horizons of the dry outback held blessings and curses, and the blessings were far between. Cole and Samantha Sloan have enjoyed several years of steady prosperity and their four children are reaching adolescence. Colin, the eldest son, has always been one to question everything and always has been ready for adventure. Approaching full independence, Colin wants out from under his parents' standards and expectations. East of Outback is the quest of Colin Sloan as he finds his way into the responsibilities of manhood in the outback of Australia. Venturing out on his own, Colin works the gold mines of Kalgoorlie, shears sheep in the Darling River country and at times simply tries to survive. But he's not prepared to take on the responsibility for his young sister, headstrong Hannah. Reluctantly, he must take her back home. Embarking on an odyssey of discovery, little does he know the journey will become a search for meaning.

Bethany House 2011 076420498X / 9780764204982 Paperback New 
Lynn Austin Will Delight Readers with Her Winsome Heroine Alice Grace Ripley lives in a dream world, her nose stuck in a book. But happily-ever-after life she's planned on suddenly falls apart when her boyfriend, Gordon, breaks up with her, accusing her of living in a world of fiction instead of the real world. Then to top it off, Alice loses her beloved job at the library because of cutbacks due to the Great Depression. Fleeing small-town gossip, Alice heads to the mountains of eastern Kentucky to deliver five boxes of donated books to the library in the tiny coal-mining village of Acorn. Dropped off by her relatives, Alice volunteers to stay for two weeks to help the librarian, Leslie McDougal. But the librarian turns out to be far different than she anticipated-not to mention the four lady librarians who travel to the remote homes to deliver the much-desired books. While Alice is trapped in Acorn against her will, she soon finds that real-life adventure and mystery-and especially romance-are far better than her humble dreams could have imagined.

Bethany House 2011 0764208055 / 9780764208058 paperback New 
Texas Ranger Jake Nelson patrols the U.S.-Mexico border, protecting the settlers from cattle rustlers, outlaws, and bandits. Sparks fly when Manuel Diego stirs up a revolt against the government, which leads to the murder of a newspaperman, who is the son of a U.S. senator, and the kidnapping of his sister, Elizabeth Madison, a journalist in the making. With Elizabeth's photograph in hand--a dark-haired beauty with smiling eyes--Jake rides over the border to find her. After the Rangers defeat the marauders and rescue Elizabeth, Jake is surprised to learn she's not the spoiled daughter of a senator that he was expecting. In fact, he finds himself taken by her. And she by him. But the Mexicans won't give up that easily, as Elizabeth becomes the target of an all-out hunt. Leaving Elizabeth back at Fort Williams, Jake and his men set off again, this time to go after Diego himself--to apprehend him and his renegades and bring them all to justice. Meanwhile, Jake knows what's begun between him and Elizabeth is undeniable. Amid all the turmoil, Jake finally admits how much he loves her. She tells him the same. Until now, they've lived in different worlds, yet it is those differences that drew them together.

As the Dutch Revolt Moves Into Full Array, a Young Family Is Caught in the Uncertainties of War. Sixteenth-century Holland has risen up in revolt against the occupation and religious oppression of King Philip II of Spain. Pieter-Lucas van den Garde, a gifted Dutch artist, continues his dangerous and strategic role of messenger for Willem van Oranje. Then, in the midst of the uncertainties of war, his wife, Aletta, gives birth to their second child. Seeking to protect his family from being arrested by the Spanish soldiers and from being accused as Anabaptists, Pieter-Lucas takes them to the fortified city of Leyden, where he had once dreamed of studying art under a master artist. Here, the only painter Pieter-Lucas finds is Joris, an innkeeper who, for fear of persecution, will not admit to being a painter or to being a Jew. But his son's gift as an artist exposes them to a danger that cannot be contained. When the Spaniards lay siege to Leyden, all their lives are in danger, and Aletta's mounting fears are finally pressed to the limit. In the Blackest of Nights, Where Is the Healer and the Lamb?

On Secret Service, Jakes, John
12 Jakes, John On Secret Service
Dutton Book 2000 052594544X / 9780525945444 1st Hard Cover Like New 
Called "the godfather of the historical novel" by the Los Angeles Times, John Jakes transports readers to a divided America and the last great untold story of the Civil War. Jakes, whose North and South trilogy includes all number one New York Times bestsellers, writes about the Civil War like no one else, and constructs a story of the shadow war waged by Union and Confederate spies and counterspies, by undercover agents and provocateurs on both sides of the line. From the involvement of the Pinkertons to the creation of the Secret Service to Lincoln's assassination, Jakes focuses on four young people caught up in the chaos of war: a spy, a rebel, an actress, and an officer, their lives swept away in a tumult of love, hatred, political intrigue, violence, and constant danger. Set against the fiery backdrop of the Civil War, from fierce battles to the stunning violence of the New York Draft Riots to that fateful night at Ford's Theater when even the President's handpicked men could not stop an assassin's bullet, On Secret Service is rife with real people and accurate period detail--historical narrative at its finest--and is another classic from the master of the genre.

The Journeyer, Jennings, Gary
13 Jennings, Gary The Journeyer
Atheneum 1984 Hardcover Good - previous owners names inside cover None 
Marco Polo was nicknamed "Marco of the millions" because his Venetian countrymen took the grandiose stories of his travels to be exaggerated, if not outright lies. As he lay dying, his priest, family, and friends offered him a last chance to confess his mendacity, and Marco, it is said, replied "I have not told the half of what I saw and did." Now Gary Jennings has imagined the half that Marco left unsaid as even more elaborate and adventurous than the tall tales thought to be lies. From the palazzi and back streets of medieval Venice to the sumptuous court of Kublai Khan, from the perfumed sexuality of the Levant to the dangers and rigors of travel along the Silk Road, Marco meets all manner of people, survives all manner of danger, and, insatiably curious, becomes an almost compulsive collector of customs, languages and women. In more than two decades of travel, Marco was variously a merchant, a warrior, a lover, a spy, even a tax collector - but always a journeyer, unflagging in his appetite for new experiences, regretting only what he missed. Here - recreated and reimagined with all the splendor, the love of adventure, the zest for the rare and curious that are Jennings's hallmarks - is the epic account, at once magnificent and delightful, of the greatest real-life adventurer in human history

18 Parris, S. J. Prophecy An Historical thriller
Doubleday 2011 0385531303 / 9780385531306 Hardcover New 
S. J. Parris returns with the next Giordano Bruno mystery, set inside Queen Elizabeth’s palace and steeped in period atmospherics and the strange workings of the occult. It is the year of the Great Conjunction, when the two most powerful planets, Jupiter and Saturn, align—an astrologi­cal phenomenon that occurs once every thousand years and heralds the death of one age and the dawn of another. The streets of London are abuzz with predictions of horrific events to come, possibly even the death of Queen Elizabeth. When several of the queen’s maids of honor are found dead, rumors of black magic abound. Elizabeth calls upon her personal astrologer, John Dee, and Giordano Bruno to solve the crimes. While Dee turns to a mysterious medium claiming knowledge of the murders, Bruno fears that some­thing far more sinister is at work. But even as the climate of fear at the palace intensifies, the queen refuses to believe that the killer could be someone within her own court. Bruno must play a dangerous game: can he allow the plot to progress far enough to give the queen the proof she needs without putting her, England, or his own life in danger? In this utterly gripping and gorgeously written novel, S. J. Parris has proven herself the new master of the historical thriller. Retail 26.95 Our priced 14.95

In four crucial debates (wars, religion, race and immigration, and the relationship between natural resources and prosperity), Schama looks back to see more clearly into the future. Full of lost insights, The American Future showcases Schama's acclaimed gift for storytelling, ensuring these voices will be heard again.
