Undoing Winter
Undoing Winter, by Shannon Connor Winward
“Shannon Connor Winward’s Undoing Winter explores the isolated, and often very cold, landscape of motherhood. Though Winward’s words are like wintry whites and blues–sharp and haunting–her literary brushstrokes paint rather tender shades of sacrifice and heartache. A carefully crafted and evocative read. I will return to these poems again and again, and each time my breath will catch a little at Winward’s brilliance.” ~ Jessica Bell, co-publishing editor of Vine Leaves Literary Journal, and author of Fabric, a semi-finalist in the Goodreads Readers’ Choice Awards 2012: Best Poetry.

Additional information, geared to very young children, includes animal winter survival adaptations, such as the foods they eat, nesting materials, camouflage, and predator survival along with a series of questions that encourage children to look back at the illustrations for clues.

Former SEAL Lukasz Gardocki thinks he’s seen the last of covert missions. That is, until he’s approached for a special job: infiltrate the Flamekeepers, a doomsday cult with a mysterious, charismatic leader that may be developing a deadly chemical weapon. Already entrenched with the group is Alecia Motley, the sister of Lukasz’s deceased best friend, who, after a shocking discovery, is now in over her head trying to expose the group’s secrets. As Lukasz is drawn deeper into the world of the Flamekeepers, his attraction to Alecia grows even as the group’s sinister goals start to come into focus; on the surface they appear to be preparing for the apocalypse, but the cult’s members may in fact be plotting to start it themselves. Lukasz will need all his training and skills to uncover the truth and expose the Flamekeepers before they learn his secret—or worse, carry out their plans.
A Noble Cause

Mark Noble plans a surprise proposal to his beautiful girlfriend during a romantic Caribbean vacation. But before he can pop the question, his girlfriend disappears, and his father--a world famous celebrity doctor who seems to have perfected mind-control--is killed in a mysterious fire back home in Pennsylvania.

When Mark investigates both his girlfriend's disappearance and his father's death, he realizes that the two events are connected. He attempts to unravel the mystery with the help of his eccentric grandmother and the courageous crew--one a former Navy SEAL--of her luxury yacht, putting all of their lives in danger as Mark faces a rich and powerful foe determined to pry from Mark a secret he doesn't even know he possesses.

Breakneck pacing and taut plotting mark Greg Smith's sophomore effort, a top-notch thriller with keen intelligence and shocking twists that create a brooding, vice-like compression that leaves little room to breathe.

A Noble Cause, by J. Gregory Smith
The Button Field
On November 18, 1897, Bertha Lane Mellish, a student at Mount Holyoke College disappeared from the campus. A minister’s daughter, twenty years younger than her only sister, Bertha was the pride of her small family. More comfortable with books than people, she left the genteel poverty of her Connecticut home hoping for a happier life at college. But what she found there, and what she learned at the mill where she worked her final summer, drove her beyond the sheltering walls of school and family. THE BUTTON FIELD is a work of fiction, imagined from research about the real Bertha Mellish. It is coming-of-age story and a mystery, an exploration of a young woman’s hopes and expectations, of the face she showed the world and the desires she hid. And, ultimately, The Button Field investigates the space between what we can and what we will never know about the workings of another’s heart. “ . . .The Button Field is more than a vivid and accurate representation of another time and place. Bertha’s vanished world reflects our own; she reappears to tell us something about the way our lives are lived, by comparison to hers. In the end, the author’s inquiring eye is twinned with the eye of the reader.” --Madison Smartt Bell
