The Soul Retrieval: A Novel by Ann W. Jarvie

Inspired by a true story, The Soul Retrieval is a suspenseful tale of love, loss and healing which follows traumatized southern beauty Henrietta Clayborn as she moves between her home in a small South Carolina town and the New Mexico Native American reservation whose spontaneous healings keep drawing her physician husband back. Tortured by her awful secrets, Henrietta struggles to thrive in either locale, but it is her unlikely friendship with Joe Loco–an eccentric Native American mystic with an Elvis fetish and a gift for healing–that shows her the way to be whole again.Set in the late 1950s, The Soul Retrieval is richly woven with spiritual insights but also deadly secrets, forbidden healings, a murder mystery, stunning scenery and an unforgettable cast of characters.A story of transcendent and inspiring power that is both entertaining and enlightening, readers will be cheering for the uptight woman from South Carolina to push through her fears of the forbidden as she searches for truth and healing, faces great obstacles on the frontier of self and ultimately becomes more than she ever thought possible.

Disengagements: Final Call for Happiness ((Women’s Fiction) (Domestic Life)) by Tamara Avner and Lydia Ashri

What would you do if you were faced with a task that went completely against the values on which you were raised? What would you do if refusal to carry it out would doom your professional career, but doing it might distance your wife, and could even tear your family away from you? And what would you do if your husband was drawn into a swirling action that went completely against your humanitarian spirit? If his activities and life style differed so markedly from the values you wish to endow to your children?”You don’t break up a home. It’s that simple: a home is not something you take apart, period. Once you get married, you’re married for life. From then on, you just keep climbing the ladder until you reach the top. There’s no opportunity to stand still and look down, nor to look around to see whether or not it suits you. End of story.”It is with these words – spoken so authoritatively by Colonel Udi Am-Shalom – that the novel Disengagements – Final Call for Happiness begins. He makes this statement, however, before his sensitive wife Yael meets an experienced older man, a master artist of love and courtship, and before he himself has to evacuate a family from a Jewish settlement in the Gaza Strip in the line of duty, on government orders. Only after these two life-changing events does Udi grasp how lonely and isolated he really is, and how deeply he yearns for the most basic bond ”” the one between a husband and a wife.This contemporary novel follows the unfolding events leading to the withdrawal from the Gaza Strip, and their impact on the life of one typical Israeli family. Although this withdrawal is geographically far from them, it penetrates the deepest cracks in the walls of their home. Constantly flowing from the personal into the national it depicts the acute pain that disengagements entail, and the agony that ensues when something whole is unraveled. The national turmoil serves as a backdrop to the gradual crumbling of the Am-Shalom family, and to the reconstruction efforts aimed at bringing new hope and meanings. ˃˃˃ Voices of four members of one familyDisengagements – Final Call for Happiness is an accomplished and affecting work, narrated in the voices of four members of one family: the measured, decisive voice of Udi, a right wing, army man; the dreamy poetic voice of his wife Yael, a secular leftist literary editor; the broken stammer of their twelve years old stuttering son, Ophir, who suffers from ADHD, and whole heartedly believes that he holds the power to rescue his father from the dilemma he faces and save his parents’ marriage; and the sad, sweet words of little six years old Maya, who is much too mature for her age.˃˃˃ Emotionally grasping from beginning to endThis is a powerful story, written in a unique style, in a language that is surprising at times. It looks at the emerging differences between individuals in a marriage, in a family, and in a crowd. It chronicles how Attention Deficit affects parenthood in our times, how at times spoken words cannot fully express our feelings, thoughts and emotions, and how every disengagement brings with it a call for closeness and love.Scroll up and grab a copy today.

Burning Down Rome by Melodie Ramone

This book is about those who demand what they deserve in life, then survive the aftermath.

It’s about taking control of destiny. About making hard choices and being viciously attacked over them. It’s about the moment we become exhausted pleasing everybody else, and decide what “the others” think just doesn’t matter anymore.

Then we set ourselves free.

It’s about rejecting preconceived notions, following our hearts, and giving new meaning to “crazy.” It’s about the escapes we made – the well-planned, calculated ones, and the frantic, desperate ones.

It’s about messy breakups, verbal massacres and heartbreaking ends to bad situations that we walk away from badly scarred, but alive – and in awe of that blessed moment of clarity where our inner voice shrieked, “RUN! LIKE HELL!” and we listened.

And to later when we realized that moment was a miracle.

But mostly it’s about life – gorgeous, screwed up, magnificent life and all the pain, love, loss and promises that go along with it. It’s about dreams worth having and the ones we make come true. And even those we must leave behind.

It’s about finding the beat of our own drummer and fearlessly stomping to it.

Burning Down Rome is the rock ‘n’ roll story of four unconquerable souls who nearly lost it all: Themselves, each other, and their passion… and then who reclaimed themselves and blazed beyond what the world said they could do.
