Rhode Island Civil War Monuments

Rhode Island Civil War Monuments

$15.00
More Info
In nearly every town and city in 36 states across America stand monuments and memorials dedicated to a time when brothers fought brothers and fathers fought sons in the bloodiest war in our nation's history... The American Civil War. Most of these monuments and memorials have stood, silently, watching over their towns and cities while their true meanings have faded into obscurity. Though a significant number of these beautiful monuments and memorials, as well as incredible works of art, stand in full view of the public, few people even notice them simply because they have stood there for generations as other wars took our attention away. A larger portion of these monuments and memorials stand in cemeteries, where some have fallen into disarray. These are surrounded by markers, reminding all who see them, of the sacrifices made by a whole generation so that we, today, can enjoy living as we do. In writing this book, we are attempting to remind future generations of these sacrifices as well as to pay homage to, and show the talents of, the artists who created them. The facts included in this book are those not found in any other works. To the best of our knowledge, this book represents all of the Civil War monuments and memorials throughout Rhode Island, from the smallest to the largest.

From acclaimed thriller-suspense novelists Heather Graham and Jon Land comes a story of action, mystery, and the endurance of young love in The Rising.

Twenty-four hours. That's all it takes for the lives of two young people to be changed forever.

Alex Chin has the world on a plate. A football hero and homecoming king with plenty of scholarship offers, his future looks bright. His tutor, Samantha Dixon, is preparing to graduate high school at the top of her class. She plans to turn her NASA internship into a career.

When a football accident lands Alex in the hospital, his world is turned upside down. His doctor is murdered. Then, his parents. Death seems to follow him wherever he goes, and now it's after him.

Alex flees. He tells Samantha not to follow, but she became involved the moment she walked through his door and found Mr. and Mrs. Chin as they lay dying in their home. She cannot abandon the young man she loves. The two race desperately to stay ahead of Alex's attackers long enough to figure out why they are hunting him in the first place. The answer lies with a secret buried deep in his past, a secret his parents died to protect. Alex always knew he was adopted, but he never knew the real reason his birth parents abandoned him. He never knew where he truly came from. Until now.

Rumors and Ghosts

Rumors and Ghosts

$20.00
More Info

Seaside villages, oft peopled by fishermen and Captains, have held sway of many a thought. Shrouded by dense fog in the dead of night, these landscapes lend themelves to Mystery and tales of old. Ethereal mirages, adamantly and assuredly seen by the believer, lay the groundwork for others' enjoyment. But even the most unsuspecting soul may wonder: Do they exist? Or are they the flames of the tortured guilt-ridden psyche within each of us?

Rumors. Who of you, have never bent your ear to one? Or begun one? Or helped one along the continuum of tale telling in which gossip becomes knotted; entangled; metamorphosizing into its own ne'er-do-well, not breathing, but existing, hurting, spewing flagitious, maleficent thoughts? And in the end, who has won? But several have lost; and over time, these threads fade, shred, wither... only for a new one to begin.

Barbara Ann Gordon was dead and buried, never to be heard from again. The last few months had been a nightmare. With the help of the U.S. Marshals she was on her way to a new home with a new identity. And now as Emily Gail Henshaw, she looked out the window of her new little house in Crab Apple Creek and saw the same guy she had met on the road earlier that day. Oh my God! The Hunk! He had made her feel things she hadn't felt in a long time. He was gorgeous! And he was her builder. It was promising to be an interesting meeting, and a long "hot" summer. The first time Emily saw the meadow where she would build her new home, the air seemed to shimmer. She saw visions of Native Spirits, felt the Magic from the mountain, and knew this was the right place. Her builder, Ethan, seemed to sense something paranormal, too. Might he have The Gift like her? Emily and Ethan's worlds were about to collide in the middle of an eruption of dance between good and evil. It seemed the Universe had plans for both of them that neither would be able to control.

Brian Beneduce has always known there was something wrong with him -- very wrong. Even at a young age when his friends were enjoying activities as harmless as sleepovers, he would hyperventilate, sweat and tremble at the mere thought. He never told a soul. As he got older his condition worsened. Open spaces, crowds, bridges, tunnels, elevators, planes and traffic all sent him into spells of debilitating fear and panic, but never more than when he would be trapped somewhere alone with his own thoughts, and would be convinced that "The Thing," as he named it, would someday kill him. Yet somehow, perhaps for the sake of his wife, children, or his business he vowed that he would find the willpower he needed to beat it -- or would die trying. Scared to Death.... Do It Anyway is one man's inspirational and tumultuous journey told through the thoughts, feelings and secrets of an acute agoraphobic. It not only chronicles three decades of severe panic and anxiety attacks, but it also reveals the healing thought process of self-realization that helped him defeat "The Thing," build a multi-million dollar business, and discover a life of true happiness.
Scoundrels

Scoundrels

$19.99
More Info
It has been said that political corruption is as old as government itself. Yet despite its timeless nature and its devastating impact on society, "political corruption" remains an elusive term that is difficult to define. In order to fully grasp its impact on government and society as a whole, it is critical to first have at least a cursory understanding of what corruption is and how it is measured. Using several infamous instances of corruption in Rhode Island politics as its framework (considered by many to be one of our nation's most corrupt states), Scoundrels: Defining Corruption Through Tales of Political Intrigue in Rhode Island attempts to define what has not always been easily recognized and for years, has eluded traditional definition. This book examines and categorizes various forms of corruption - including both active and passive practices - that have negative and deteriorating affects not only on the individuals who fall victim to the corrupt acts, but on society as a whole. Scoundrels is an unsettling chronicle of corruption in our times. And the authors warn that until all citizens unite in their opposition to, and the exposing of, all government corruption, nothing in our society will change, and our government of the people, by the people and for the people will continue to hurt the people it was intended to help.

In this book titled Shadow Realms Demonology Handbook, you will find articles by demonologists Carl L. Johnson and Lana J. Brock. Carl is known for his appearances on Syfy Channel's Ghost Hunters seasons 1 & 2; and Animal Planet's The Haunted in 5 episodes. He also appeared in an episode of A Haunting with his family. Lana appeared on Syfy Channel's Paranormal Witness in an episode called Deliver Us from Evil and a couple of appearances on the Ghosts R N.E.A.R. show PBS Rhode Island. Both have appeared in numerous paranormal radio shows and have shared their experiences as witnesses of the paranormal, the demonic, for which path led them to study and research that field as demonologists. This is their first endeavor branching out beyond, already set standards of what is traditionally known as "demonology"; to "think outside the box" and ponder new theories on negative spirits, demons and the shadow realms for which they dwell. There are differing views between the two authors to demonstrate various perspectives and to display a method of hypothesizing and speculation outside what is known as demonology. Our world is filled with wonderful views of mythology, religious and scientific studies from all cultures. We invite you as we share our thoughts on this topic to consider the possibilities outside of that realm, as we know it.

Thus We have early in the book stories of a wheat field and of the planting of corn, followed later by descriptions of harvesting, stacking and thrashing, the buying and selling of Wheat, its storage, and the grinding of wheat into flour. The stories relating to lumber, coal, and iron, and the industries to which they give rise, are scattered among the farm stories to lend variety to the themes and to give the reader a broader view of industrial life. The stories of animals are true stories of actual occurrences.

Norton weaves realistic professional procedure and unexpected emotional jolts into the otherwise erotic flavor of Key West, creating a debut that will seriously contend for all the "Best First" awards.-author Jeremiah Healy

P. K. Norton introduces a new heroine to mystery fans!

Everybody loves Chef Garcia's key lime coconut petit fours. Some even say they're to die for. When four guests die at a wedding at the Beaux Rêves Hotel, the famous petit fours are blamed.

Insurance investigator Amy Lynch flies from Boston to Key West to prepare for a wrongful death suit, her first trip to the island since her fiancé died there three years ago.

Amy's investigation is beset with problems from the get-go. The hotel management is pushing for a quick settlement regardless of fault. The local police are calling the event a tragic accident. Most potential witnesses are missing, deceased or unhelpful. The ghost of Amy's fiancé haunts her as she fends off pressures from all sides and copes with uncertainties concerning her new relationship.

She encounters death at every turn. The health inspector who monitored the hotel kitchen dies in an auto accident; the reporter who covered the incident for the local paper turns up drowned; even a homeless woman Amy befriends is found dead. And deceased wildlife crosses her path more than once.

As she forges on in the face of these obstacles, Amy wonders if Key West is the tropical paradise of the travel brochures or a petri dish of death.
