Love is a Wounded Soldier

Despite growing up with an abusive, alcoholic father, and having to cope with the untimely death of his mother, Robert Mattox has retained his innocence and idealism. He woos and marries his first love, Ellen, and it appears his life is set for a happily-ever-after ending.
But World War II is raging, and its vortex snatches him away from his young bride. He finds himself fighting in Europe, witnessing and participating in the unspeakable ugliness and brutality of war. His love for Ellen holds him back from utter despondency, and his will to fight and live draws strength from his desire to return home to her.
When he finally does return home to Kentucky, he’s exhausted, jaded, and scarred — inside and out. His worst fear is how Ellen will respond to the changes in him, but when he gets home he finds that Ellen is different, too — much different.

The Kindness of Strangers

By Mike McIntyre / Genre: Biographies & Memoirs, Travel / Rating: 4.4 out of 5 stars

The Kindness of Strangers

Stuck in a job he no longer found fulfilling, journalist Mike McIntyre felt his life was quickly passing him by. So one day he hit the road to trek from one end of the country to the other with little more than the clothes on his back and without a single penny in his pocket. Through his travels, he found varying degrees of kindness in strangers from all walks of life–and discovered more about people and values and life on the road in America than he’d ever thought possible. The gifts of food and shelter he received along the way were outweighed only by the touching gifts of the heart–the willingness of many he met to welcome a lonely stranger into their homes…and the discovery that sometimes those who give the most are the ones with the least to spare.

Proximity: A Novel of the Navy’s Elite Bomb Squad

By Stephen Phillips / Genre: Action & Adventure, Mystery & Thrillers, War / Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

Proximity: A Novel of the Navy's Elite Bomb Squad

The Sailors of the United States Navy Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) community “perform under pressure” in the hazardous job of bomb disposal, often deep beneath the sea…alone.

An EOD Technician must have the brains of an engineer, the hands of a surgeon, and the courage of a martyr. In the U.S. Navy, carrier flight operations only occur under the watchful eye of EOD Techs ready to respond to ordnance accidents. U.S. Marines assault enemy beachheads only after EOD Techs clear the littoral seas and landing zones of mines. The U.S. Secret Service even relies on military bomb squads to protect the President and visiting foreign dignitaries. Perhaps the best testimony of their value is that when the Navy needs to place a limpet mine under an enemy ship it tasks the Navy SEALs, but to respond to such an attack – the Navy summons EOD.

Proximity highlights the exciting work of one EOD detachment as they become enmeshed in the efforts of a terrorist coalition operating both in Europe and the United States. Lieutenant “Jazz” Jascinski and the men of Detachment Four become the key to helping the FBI apprehend these terrorists – until their unique skills place them under suspicion. To protect themselves, the Techs must race to find the culprits before they become the next victims…

The Black Dog and The American Woman

By J. D. Reid / Genre: Action & Adventure / Rating: 4.6 out of 5 stars

The Black Dog and The American Woman

“This is a great story and really introduces a different culture.”

The Black Dog and the American Woman is one of those stories that transport the reader somewhere new and rarely experienced. The scene is set on an eco-Tour somewhere on the upper reaches of the Cuyabeno River deep in the Amazon rainforest of central Ecuador. A group of tourists has arrived and is just settling into camp as dark clouds gather and a ferocious black dog runs through the tangle of the jungle in hot pursuit of its prey. On one level, it is an interesting and often thrilling tale told of an eco-Tour gone bad; but it is much more than that. As the fine balance of life and death is revealed in the canopy above them, and in their fearful flight up the river, the reader is immersed in the reality of the jungle as few stories of this type have done before. As stated in his remarks, the author has direct experience in this regard; there is a suggestion some aspects of this story might even be true, and it certainly reads like it. The writing is reminiscent of Somerset Maugham’s short stories of the Far East as well as Joseph Conrad’s of the Malay Peninsula. It is a morality tale in which good and bad, like life and death, are in near equal balance.
