The Secret Garden of George Washington Carver by Gene Barretta

When George Washington Carver was just a young child, he had a secret: a garden of his own.

Here, he rolled dirt between his fingers to check if plants needed more rain or sun. He protected roots through harsh winters, so plants could be reborn in the spring. He trimmed flowers, spread soil, studied life cycles. And it was in this very place that George’s love of nature sprouted into something so much more—his future.

Gene Barretta’s moving words and Frank Morrison’s beautiful paintings tell the inspiring life and history of George Washington Carver, from a baby born into slavery to celebrated botanist, scientist, and inventor. His passion and determination are the seeds to this lasting story about triumph over hardship—a tale that begins in a secret garden.

75th Anniversary of Iwo Jima
Indestructible: The Unforgettable Memoir of a Marine Hero at the Battle of Iwo Jima by Jack H. Lucas

Medal of Honor recipient Jack H. Lucas’s classic memoir of his heroics at the Battle of Iwo Jima—with a foreword by Bob Dole and reissued to coincide with the 75th anniversary of the battle in 2020.

On February 20, 1945, the second day of the assault on Iwo Jima—one of the bloodiest battles of the Pacific theater in World War II—Private Jack Lucas, who was only seventeen, and three other Marines engaged in a close-proximity firefight with Japanese soldiers. When two enemy grenades landed in their trench, Lucas jumped on one and pulled the other under his body to save the lives of his comrades. Lucas was blown into the air as his body was torn apart by 250 entrance wounds. He was so severely wounded that his team left him for dead. Miraculously, he survived.

While on the hospital ship  Samaritan , his spirit soared to see the American flag flying atop Mount Suribachi—the same flag immortalized in Joe Rosenthal’s iconic photograph,  Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima . Lucas endured twenty-one grueling surgeries and carried 200 pieces of shrapnel in his body for the rest of his life. Awarded the Medal of Honor, he became the youngest Marine in U.S. history—and the youngest of all World War II servicemen—to receive the honor.

Indestructible  tells the remarkable story of an extraordinary American possessed with a fierce determination to serve his country.

Home Making by Lee Matalone

Cybil is a war child—the result of a brief affair between a young Japanese woman and a French soldier—who at a young age is transplanted to Tucson, Arizona, and raised by an American officer and his rigid wife. After a rebellious adolescence, she grows up to become a successful ob-gyn. 

Chloe, Cybil’s daughter, is adrift in an empty house in the hills of Virginia. Her marriage has fallen apart, and her estranged husband is dying of cancer. Room by room, Chloe makes her new house into a home, grappling always with the real and imagined boundaries that limit her as a single, childless woman in contemporary America.

Beau, Chloe’s closest friend, is in love with a man he’s only met on the internet, who lives across the country. Shepherding Chloe through her grief, he is often called back to his loud, humid, chaotic childhood in Southwest Louisiana, where he first reckoned with the intricate ties between queerness, loneliness, and place.  

Through each of these characters Matalone weaves a moving, beautiful narrative of home, identity, and belonging.  Home Making  is a somber, yet hopeful, ode to the stories we tell ourselves in order to make a family.

February New Releases
Fiction
Highfire by Eoin Colfer (signed copies available!)

In the days of yore, he flew the skies and scorched angry mobs—now he hides from swamp tour boats and rises only with the greatest reluctance from his Laz-Z-Boy recliner. Laying low in the bayou, this once-magnificent fire breather has been reduced to lighting Marlboros with nose sparks, swilling Absolut in a  Flashdance  T-shirt, and binging Netflix in a fishing shack. For centuries, he struck fear in hearts far and wide as Wyvern, Lord Highfire of the Highfire Eyrie—now he goes by Vern.

However...he has survived, unlike the rest. He is the last of his kind, the last dragon. Still, no amount of vodka can drown the loneliness in his molten core. Vern’s glory days are long gone. Or are they?
A canny Cajun swamp rat, young Everett “Squib” Moreau does what he can to survive, trying not to break the heart of his saintly single mother. He’s finally decided to work for a shady smuggler—but on his first night, he witnesses his boss murdered by a crooked constable. 
Regence Hooke is not just a dirty cop, he’s a despicable human being—who happens to want Squib’s momma in the worst way. When Hooke goes after his hidden witness with a grenade launcher, Squib finds himself airlifted from certain death by…a dragon?

The swamp can make strange bedfellows, and rather than be fried alive so the dragon can keep his secret, Squib strikes a deal with the scaly apex predator. He can act as his go-between (aka familiar)—fetch his vodka, keep him company, etc.—in exchange for protection from Hooke. Soon the three of them are careening headlong toward a combustible confrontation. There’s about to be a fiery reckoning, in which either dragons finally go extinct—or Vern’s glory days are back.

The Calling: 3 Fundamental Shifts to Stay True, Get Paid, and Do Good by Rha Goddess

Are you willing to believe in you?

Every single one of us has a calling.

For most it’s the thing you have to force yourself not to do.
When you try to ignore it, you can’t stop thinking about. It is the thing that both terrifies you and brings you the most joy.

Already living yours? Great! How do you make the most of it?
 
The Calling  will provide readers with a road map, via 3 fundamental shifts, on how to stay true, get paid and do good. The steps that will help lead you there include:

RECOGNIZING—it always begins with awareness. If you can’t see it then you can’t do anything about it.

ACCEPTING—means embracing, and taking responsibility for yourself, your life, and the things that want or need to be changed.

FORGIVING—yourself and others.

AND MORE!

The Calling  will be the resource that people have been asking Rha to write for years, and there has never been a better time for her to share her proven method.

What If It's True? by Charles Martin

Years ago novelist Charles Martin opened his Bible and began to wrestle with a few fundamental questions. He asked, “What if every single word of Scripture is absolutely true and I can trust it? How do I respond? Something in me should change, but what? How?” This book is the result of that exploration.

With the depth, sensitivity, and emotion that has made his novels beloved to millions, Charles ignites our imaginations as to what the life, ministry, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ mean to us today. Charles asks, "What if dead and crucified Jesus came back to life by the power of the Holy Spirit and is alive today? Right now. What if that same Jesus, the One who walked out of the tomb shining like the sun, holding the keys of death and hades, is alive in me? I write fiction for a living, and that's either the craziest thing I've ever heard or it's the most important word ever spoken. You and I have a King who did the unthinkable."

The answers that his writer's imagination illuminates for us will change the way we think about the gospel and the way we live because of it.

Last of Her Name by Jessica Khoury

Sixteen years ago, rebellion swept the galaxy known as the Belt of Jewels.

Every member of the Leonov royal family was murdered—down to their youngest child, Princess Anya—making way for the Union government to seize power.

But Stacia doesn't think much about politics. She spends her days half-wild, rambling her father's vineyard with her friends, Clio and Pol. That all changes when a Union ship appears burning through the sky, bearing the leader of the Union, the Direktor Eminent himself, who declares that Stacia's sleepy village is a den of empire loyalists. Even more shocking, the Direktor claims that Princess Anya Leonova is alive—and  Stacia  is the lost princess.

As their home explodes into chaos, Pol smuggles Stacia to a hidden escape ship, leaving Clio in the hands of the Union. With everything she knows threading away into the stars, Stacia sets her heart on a single mission:

She will find and rescue Clio, even with the whole galaxy on her trail.

So when the most feared witch alive comes to her to seek her help in finding last Tuesday, Willow is shocked to say the least. But through her journey, and with her new friends -- including a dragon, a troll, and the monster from under her bed that greatly resembles a cat -- Willow manages to find confidence in herself and value in her abilities.

Little Women by Louisa May Alcott

With all of the hype recently around the new movie adaptation of Little Women , I couldn't help but revisit Alcott's classic novel. Growing up in a house of girls myself, I think that I will always love this story, and always see so much of my own life in that of the March's. It's a charming story of resilience and strength in a time when women were supposed to fade in the background. This book is the perfect way to spend a cozy day, and as we all continue to excitedly swoon over Greta Girwig's new version, I would encourage you to take a look back at where it all began.

Mercy House by Alena Dillon

Mercy House deals with some tough subjects--abortion, immoral priests, and sex trafficking--to name a few. Yet out of this author Alena Dillon is able to show the power of women when they stick together, the unending and complicated love of family, and a community that despite their flaws stands by each other. Dillon is able to use humor as a counterbalance to the drama that takes place. This book is sure to be controversial but somehow I feel like a better person having read it.

Saint X by Alexis Schaitkin

Saint X is a deeply moving and complex novel about Allison, a beautiful and brilliant 18 year old who on the verge of adulthood starts questioning everything about her life – her privilege, her friends, her family, her purpose. Her life ends tragically under mysterious circumstances on the beautiful island of Saint X during a family vacation. The reader is left with memories and introspection from those who knew her and who had interacted with her to try and solve the mystery of her death. In parts seeming like a documentary about the luxurious Saint X the author switches back and forth between third and first person with an occasional use of second to direct the reader along. This along with switching from past to present and interspersing thoughts from some of the minor characters takes us on an epic journey through the mesmerizing story of how all who knew Allison were forever changed by her death. Part mystery, part psychological novel, part coming of age this is a beautifully written story you won’t want to miss.

Beautiful Bad by Annie Ward

Beautiful Bad opened with a police detective at the scene of a murder – but we have no idea who is murdered. More than a murder mystery it was a compelling story of the complex love between two friends and the hurt that results when their lives change. I loved reading about Maddie and Joanna’s adventures in the dangerous places they lived and played. I liked both characters (at first) and thought I understand why their friendship ended. Hidden desires, dark secrets, much manipulation, and an ultimate murder come painfully together as all lives are torn apart. Beautiful Bad was a riveting story with a surprise ending…is this a fight for survival, or something much more sinister?

Lights All Night Long by Lydia Fitzpatrick

Ilya and his older brother Vladimir could not be more opposite. Vladimir is a poor student, gets in trouble constantly and eventually turns to drugs. Ilya is brilliant, has a true gift for language, and with the mentoring of a special teacher he has blossomed. But, they both have the same dream – to get out of their small bleak and depressing mining town in remote Russia and go to the US. Ilya idolizes his older brother while at the same time knowing he should not let his bad ways affect his chances of winning a chance in an exchange program. Ilya’s dream eventually comes true and he goes to America to live with a family in a small town in Louisiana. The excitement of this achievement is dampened by the fact that Vladimir after almost dying from drugs, and losing a leg to gangrene, is arrested for the murder of three young women. The plot is driven by the mystery of the murders and Ilya’s determination to try and prove his brother’s innocence while at the same time assimilating into the life of a high school student in America. Lights All Night Long is a beautiful, sad, compelling and totally mesmerizing coming of age story. It paints such a bleak picture of life in the small Russian town that it is no wonder that people will do anything to try and survive, and to achieve the ultimate dream of coming to America. It is also a story of drugs, and how they harm even those who don't use them. But most of all it is a story of family and love and loyalty and forgiveness.

A Good Neighborhood by Therese Anne Fowler

A Good Neighborhood is anything but a good neighborhood in this beautifully written but heartbreaking modern Greek tragedy. The story is narrated by a chorus of neighbors who see and hear what they think is happening. The characters involved also have a voice as they tell their thoughts and their reasoning behind their actions. White privilege, greed, racism, and ultra conservative religion all play a part in the events that lead to the final scene. So many times the outcome could have been changed if only reason, good sense and respect had prevailed. One of the most compelling books I have read in a while, it is a tough read, but one that has many lessons to teach. It is something that could and probably does happen more frequently than we would like to admit. Highly recommended for book clubs as the topics for discussion will be endless.

The Paris Diversion by Chris Pavone

Every once in a while you encounter a book with such an intricate and creative plot, you simply marvel at how the author can conceive and craft it. This is one of those books. It expands on the typical 'spy' thriller with a complex and intricate plot wrapped around characters who are deeply developed and layered with the everyday realities of family life while responding to a frightening series of terrorist attacks that our heroine, Kate Moore suspects might be masking something deeper and more personal. This is a tautly written thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat. A great read.

No Fixed Line by Dana Stabenow

A suspense filled installment in this series. The underbelly of society is exposed in this book. Human trafficking, specifically that of immigrants and children is far more prevalent than many of us imagine. This book confronts the topic directly, showing the wide reaching consequences. Kate is ever resourceful and involved in controversy, even from family. The plot is intricately woven and could be read as a stand alone, but wonderful as the latest installment in this series.

The Third to Die by Allison Brennan

Kara Quinn is a maverick, a great quality for an undercover cop, maybe not as great in daily life. On 'vacation' after a long undercover operation she never expects to become embroiled in a murder investigation. Mathias Costa is trying to get a new FBI division established. The goal is to help in areas that are undeserved by local law enforcement. The personalities of Kara and Mathias collide and boundaries between the two are continually tested. Breenan's character development is superb, minor characters are well developed and the plot is fast paced and complex. This promises to be an excellent series and the personalities introduced here all have compelling stories yet to be told.
