It began with gold that had once belonged to Montezuma. Stolen and cached in a church in Mexico, it was reco...vered by two army officers who fled north for the French settlements. Along the way one stabbed the other to death. The remaining officer was eventually killed by Plains Indians, but he buried the treasure just before he died. Now Ronan Chantry, a handful of trappers, and an Irish girl whose father was killed after telling her a few vague landmarks are searching for the lost treasure. But they are not alone. The girl's uncle, Rafen Falvey, wants it, too. Like Chantry, he is well educated, bold, and determined. Under different circumstances the two men might have been friends. But in all likelihood it wouldn't have made any difference. When it comes to gold, even friendship doesn't keep men from killing each other.

            Tense, atmospheric, and gorgeously written, The Summer Country is a novel to savor! - Kate Quinn, New York Times bestselling author of The Huntress and The Alice Network A brilliant, multigenerational saga in the tradition of The Thorn Birds and North and South, New York Times be...stselling historical novelist Lauren Willig delivers her biggest, boldest, and most ambitious novel yet-a sweeping Victorian epic of lost love, lies, jealousy, and rebellion set in colonial Barbados. Barbados, 1854: Emily Dawson has always been the poor cousin in a prosperous English merchant clan- merely a vicar's daughter, and a reform-minded vicar's daughter, at that. Everyone knows that the family's lucrative shipping business will go to her cousin, Adam, one day. But when her grandfather dies, Emily receives an unexpected inheritance: Peverills, a sugar plantation in Barbados-a plantation her grandfather never told anyone he owned. When Emily accompanies her cousin and his new wife to Barbados, she finds Peverills a burnt-out shell, reduced to ruins in 1816, when a rising of enslaved people sent the island up in flames. Rumors swirl around the derelict plantation; people whisper of ghosts. Why would her practical-minded grandfather leave her a property in ruins Why are the neighboring plantation owners, the Davenants, so eager to acquire Peverills The answer lies in the past- a tangled history of lies, greed, clandestine love, heartbreaking betrayal, and a bold bid for freedom. THE SUMMER COUNTRY will beguile readers with its rendering of families, heartbreak, and the endurance of hope against all odds.

Raised in part by Indians, then befriended by a mysterious woman, Johannes grew up to become a rugged adventurer and an educated man. But even now, strengthened by the love of a golden-haired girl and well on his way to making a fortune in bustling early-day Los Angeles, the past may rise up to threaten his future once more. And this time only the ancient gods of the desert can save him.

            As part of the Louis L'Amour's Lost Treasures series, this edition contains exclusive bonus materials! It seemed the perfect place to lie low. The owner of the ranch was an attractive gray-haired lady who had once been an actress. The other woman was a beautiful, fragile-seeming ...blonde. They needed repairs done, and he needed to disappear for a while. The first sign that things were not as they should be was when a Pinkerton man questioned him about a missing woman. Then he accidentally found a will belonging to the previous owner of the ranch. After that, a young lady showed up in town making claims that the place belonged to her. Worried that his hideout was turning into a battleground, he didn't know what would be more dangerous, staying or leaving. For a man interested only in passin' through, he suddenly found himself entangled in a deadly struggle. . . . Louis L'Amour's Lost Treasures is a project created to release some of the author's more unconventional manuscripts from the family archives. In Louis L'Amour's Lost Treasures: Volumes 1, Beau L'Amour takes the reader on a guided tour through many of the finished and unfinished short stories, novels, and treatments that his father was never able to publish during his lifetime. L'Amour's never-before-seen first novel, No Traveller Returns, faithfully completed for this program, is a voyage into danger and violence on the high seas. These exciting publications will be followed by Louis L'Amour's Lost Treasures: Volume 2. Additionally, many beloved classics will be rereleased with an exclusive Lost Treasures postscript featuring previously unpublished material, including outlines, plot notes, and alternate drafts. These postscripts tell the story behind the stories that millions of readers have come to know and cherish.

            Could the course and outcome of World War II be changed redundantly? Possibly, since all you need is a professional, experienced time-traveling historical researcher. The task may not be quite that simple, however, so he had better be very, very careful ... The Lebe Technique, a ...secret weapon developed by a theoretical physicist among ODESSA SS exiles fleeing war crimes prosecution in 1960 Argentina, requires endless experimental trials prior to sending an ex-SS officer back to 1939 Berlin along with a full-blown account of actual WWII for use in some unknown way to coach a German victory. Berlin, renamed Welthaupstadt Germania, the capital of Germany's neo-Nazi Empire by Hitler after the Third Reich caps its War of World Liberation by creating numerous foreign provinces, and becoming the seat of Neo-Nazi Germany's Empire. During imperial year 142, dating from 1933 when the vilified Nazi regime was born, veteran time-traveling Professor James Silverthorne of Goebbels Institut, once the University of Colorado in grossly swollen Greater Denver Gauleitung, the capital of Colorado-Provinz, is vetted by Nazi officialdom to undertake a hazardous retro-temporal research junket in millennia-distant European antiq uity. But local counter-dissidence Sicherheitsdienst investigators penetrate an allied revolutionary cell, and arouse suspicion that Silverthorne also members among the patriotic conspirators scheming to overthrow the Neo-Nazi empire, thus forcing his emergency retro-temporal return to the early months of WWII with an assignment to locate, hinder, thwart, or simply eliminate imperial hero of heroes Erich Lustmann, who by some totally unknown means has imitated Nostradamus and is beginning to influence a WWII victory by Nazi Germany. Fearing his mission impossible to find Lustmann in bustling, wartime Berlin is precisely that, Silverthorne pursues his redundant world-changing crusade in an exciting time-travel adventure grand in scope and purpose.

            The Water Dancer (EPUB ebook)

            By Coates, Ta-Nehisi

            The unmissable debut novel by the critically acclaimed author of Between the World and Me andWe Were Eight Years in Power - a richly imagined and compulsively page-turning journey to freedomOPRAH BOOK CLUB PICK 'I haven't felt this way since I first read Beloved... I wish Toni [M...orrison] was alive to actually read this book. She would be so proud' - OprahHiram Walker is born into bondage on a Virginia plantation. But he is also born gifted with a mysterious power that he won't discover until he is almost a man, when he risks everything for a chance to escape. One fateful decision will carry him away from his makeshift plantation family - his adoptive mother, Thena, a woman of few words and many secrets, and his beloved, angry Sophia - and into the covert heart of the underground war on slavery.Hidden amidst the corrupt grandeur of white plantation society, exiled as guerrilla cells in the wilderness, buried in the coffin of the deep South and agitating for utopian ideals in the North, there exists a widespread network of secret agents working to liberate the enslaved. Hiram joins their ranks and learns fast but in his heart he yearns to return to his own still-enslaved family, to topple the plantation that was his first home. But to do so, he must first master his unique power and reclaim the story of his greatest loss.Propulsive, transcendent and blazing with truth, The Water Dancer is a story of oppression and resistance, separation and homecoming. Ta-Nehisi Coates imagines the covert war of an enslaved people in response to a generations-long human atrocity - a war for the right to life, to kin, to freedom.'One of the best books I have ever read in my entire life. Right up there in the top five. I was enthralled, I was devastated. I felt hope, I felt gratitude, I felt joy... [Ta-Nehisi Coates] is a magnificent writer' Oprah
