Inside the Book:

 
 
Title: Three Sides to the Story
Author: Dona Sarkar
Publisher: Lyrical Press
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Format: Ecopy 

 

There are never just two people in a relationship. . .

From the author of Scattered Ashes comes a moving, insightful novel about the decisions, large and small, that draw couples, families, and cultures closer together—or tears them apart. . .

Teaching assistant Quinn Montgomery was satisfied with a secret romance. After all, as a professor, Shalin Roy was technically her boss at the university in Ann Arbor. Both their careers would be at risk if their relationship was exposed. Not only that, Quinn is a mentor to Shalin’s shy older daughter, Kashmira, who looks up to her like a big sister. So when Quinn’s graduate studies end, she is unprepared for Shalin’s ultimatum: marry him, or it’s over.

Born in Afghanistan, Shalin long ago lost the wife who’d been arranged for him. He never dreamed he’d commit to another woman. But his bright, beautiful student has captured his heart. Now they should make it official. To his two daughters, he thinks, Quinn is already like family. So he is unprepared for the young women’s fierce disapproval—or the challenges that follow. Soon, a romance that seemed perfect in private will be severely tested by the complex, competing needs and loyalties of three very different people . . .

Title: The Rise of Gideon 
Author: Stan Matthews 
Publisher: iUniverse 
Genre: Historical Fiction 
Format: Ebook
 

It is the early 1960s when journalism student Art James first meets Professor Gideon Pratt at a Midwestern university. When Art secures a reporter job after graduation, Gideon summons him, reveals that the university is harboring a Communist cell, and asks Art to write a story about it. Art, driven by his desire to earn accolades, writes the article. But when Gideon’s name is slashed from the story, Art angrily resigns.

Years later, Art lands a job with the New York Dispatch, with help from Gideon who is busy defending an educational foundation from attacks by a little known organization, the Cotterites. After Art reconnects with Gideon and his beautiful colleague/ love interest, Jo Davis, he discovers that feared anti-Communist Harry Cotter once wrote a thesis in praise of Communism—a fact that his former professor Silenus Stoddard eventually verifies. Many stories later that include an interview with Cotter himself, Art learns that Cotter is planning a rally in Madison Square Garden. While Art falls for Jo, an infuriated Gideon who blames Silenus for an embarrassing failure prepares to reveal his true self.

The Rise of Gideon shares the tale of a public relations guru and an ambitious New York reporter as they work together to expose a vicious society of extremists.

Title: I Asked My Father 
Author: Dorothy Rice, R.N. 
Publisher: iUniverse 
Genre: Religion 
Format: Ebook
 

This is a small book of poetry. It was written while the author was close to death from Lupus. Why, then, does pain inspire, and inspiration produce fruits to uplift and comfort. God only knows. But there is knowing here and insights only the heart knows through suffering. If you are suffering, or know someone who is, you may find these poems a salve and solution to why good people have to suffer. For, as the author once said, "The question is not why bad things happen to good people, but why good things happen to bad people; namely, why did Jesus came for me?"

Meet the Author:

Dr. Charles Rice is the husband of Dorothy Rice, R.N. He is a clinical psychologist and Dorothy still helps him in helping couples and families. She is the author of this, small, book of poetry which she wrote when very ill with Lupus before God healed her.

Dorothy and I have two grown daughters and one grandson all living near us in Boise, Idaho.
