You’ll be in Heaven with ‘The Little Angel’ in the fantasy “The Little Angel and the Three Wisdoms” by Catherine Farrar.
Follow the adventures of a nervous young trainee angel as he travels to earth to shadow the Three Wisdoms (the three dimensions of a little girl named Sophia).
But before he can get away, the angel has to leave his trumpet. Everything revolves around music, because God is very bored. But He is also a big music lover. You see, God has nothing better to do because He has seen it all. Meanwhile, the little angel, still scared and a bit fumbling, is tussling with the love affairs of three willful and flighty girls. The angel gets back to his trumpet and God sends his peace messages to humankind by email (with a bit of help from His nerds).
Sound the trumpets! The heavenly fantasy The Little Angel and the Three Wisdoms begins in heaven, travels to earth, and lands back in heaven. For God allows his creatures to stray, but His forgiving love saves the day and shines with the amazing grace of music. Amen!

Mystery novel, “The One Penny Orange Mystery” by Morris Ackerman, centers around the valuable world of stamp.
In this intriguing mystery, collectors jet across globe to nab million dollar stamp. The theft of a rare stamp that dates from colonial-era Mauritius ignites a worldwide search for its recovery in “The One Penny Orange Mystery” by Morris Ackerman.
Ackerman dives into the intrigue and passions that power the little known world of elite stamp collecting. In this mystery, several renowned collectors pursue an exceedingly rare stamp that was stolen during an auction in Washington, D.C. Valued at over $1 million, the coveted piece of postage comes from the remote island nation of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean, once a colonial island and now a tropical resort.

A bit of New York City history comes alive inside the Dinty Moore restaurant in “Good to Her” by Enid Harlow.
For over 50 years, Dinty Moore’s restaurant was a Manhattan legend before it finally closed in the early 1970s. Through its doors on West 46th Street passed such luminaries as Lauren Bacall and Humphrey Bogart, Walter Winchell and Damon Runyan.

Insightful book looks at American politics since the Civil War in “How the South Won the Civil War: And How It Affects Us Today” by Prof. Frank R. Barreca.
In 1875, when Republican governors went back North after the Civil War, the 11 Confederate states elected Democrats to replace them. Each Southern state passed “Jim Crow” laws, virtually stopping any progress that black Americans made after the war, and enforced segregation policies for at least the next 75 years.
How the South Won the Civil War: And How It Affects Us Today discusses politics from the end of the war in 1865, to abolishing slavery during Reconstruction in the ten years that followed, to today’s mess in Washington, with approval ratings for Congress at one of the lowest levels ever. This incisive book examines the consequences of Democrat Party politics, its effects on blacks and Hispanics, and the political and religious leaders of these two groups. The book also explains how majority rule is often overruled by various minority groups to end up with policies that the majority might not want.
The book exposes the failings More >
