FAITHFUL ENEMIES, BY DEVINE BASSETT

Faithful Enemies: A Fictional Tale of Military Adventure, Sabotage and Corruption 

CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE

Faithful Enemies is a story about four military soldiers, and their families, who all became the best of friends. Bonds were formed that they could only assume would be unbreakable, that is, until one of their own found out that M.T.P.S. (Military Tactical Protection Services) had kept a secret about its protective gear and uniforms, which were supposed to keep soldiers from injury during combat and non-military personnel safe while at work. Thereafter, different paths would lead them to Iran, Iraq, and Afghanistan. Many of them accepted life-altering offers they could not refuse. Others made decisions that would drastically affect their lives forever. Their relationships with each other would change quickly, and take a turn for the worse, in the blink of an eye. They would find out all too soon, that blood is not thicker than water, revenge is justice for a woman who has been betrayed, and family bonds are solely dependent upon heartfelt loyalty. Acts of anger, jealousy, and envy, bring about dire, unavoidable consequences. You may have heard the expressions: "Pray for your enemies," or "Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer," and "Few things in life will cause you grief more than family." Think about those who have been in your life. Do you put them in the category of enemy, friend, or family? If you cannot make the separation, or distinguish between the three, what decisions will you make when you are surrounded by Faithful Enemies?

    from Amazon:

    The Story of the Unlucky Teacher and her Koalas is a must read for any educator who believes that all children have the ability to learn and be successful. The Unlucky Teacher's koalas are representative of the students who attend America's public schools-students who are poor and hungry, students who have learning disabilities or physical impairments, students who have been taught not to believe in themselves. Refusing to allow the stress of high stakes tests and humiliating comments from the community deter her, The Unlucky Teacher leads her koalas and their families to a triumphant victory that defies the societal stigmas that are pervasive in the koala bears' everyday lives.

    A WOMAN'S JOURNEY


    Biography

    Sandra Francis is an RN and a cultural anthropologist working in the field of medical anthropology. Her doctoral research was on the topic of Navajo healing ceremonies. She was particularly interested in the holistic approach of the Navajos and in their use of song, dance, prayer, and art to help patients regain hozho (balance).
    This interest in wholeness and healing inspired her first novel: The Crystal Staircase: A Woman's Journey, which tells the story of four "wounded healers" who manage, during a week-long retreat, to heal themselves and each other in "graceful and loving ways."

    SECRETS OF THE SPECKLED OAK-THE STORY OF A MOTHER'S LOVE AND PERSEVERANCE

    BY DAWN ALEXANDER

    Laura, a loving mother and wife, struggles over the fact of revealing difficult family secrets to her sons, Max and Alex. She laughs to herself at the thought of how closely her "real-life" resembles that of a "Lifetime Movie". She mulls over how difficult it would be to actually "tell" Max the entire story! When suddenly the answer to her dilemma strikes her! Laura elects to relive many of her joyful and heartbreaking events that helped to shape her life, by way of a letter! Laura lovingly writes a letter to her son, Max. She explains how not only heartbreak, but love has transformed her life into what it is today. Within the envelope of the letter, Laura places a special gift for Max and Alex to share, which the sons do not initially understand. Laura quotes scriptures from the Bible throughout her letter in hopes that it may aid her son Max through the "journey" of his mother's life. She hopes once he has completed the reading of the letter and her life story, he may understand even though life does not always turn out exactly how one may have it planned, does not mean the outcome will not turn out even better than he could have ever imagined!
