Walden (AmazonClassics Edition)

At Walden Pond, Henry David Thoreau reflected on simpler living in the natural world. By removing himself from the distractions of materialism, Thoreau hoped to not only improve his spiritual life but also gain a better understanding of society through solitary introspection.

In Walden, Thoreau condenses his two-year, two-month, two-day stay into a single year, using the four seasons to symbolize human development—a cycle of life shared by both nature and man. A celebration of personal renewal through self-reliance, independence, and simplicity, composed for all of us living in “quiet desperation,” Walden is eternal.

Revised edition: Previously published as Walden, this edition of Walden (AmazonClassics Edition) includes editorial revisions.

Heroes of Medieval Wales: Daughter of Time/Cold My Heart/The Good Knight/The Last Pendragon: Four First-in-Series Romances
Time travel, mystery, magic ... journey to a world of knights and castles with these four first-in-series historical romances!

Daughter of Time (novel): Time travel to medieval Wales ... A medieval man with an uncertain destiny and a modern woman with a troubled past. Only by working together can Llywelyn and Meg navigate the shifting allegiances that threaten the very existence of Wales-and create their own history that defies the laws of time.

Cold My Heart (novella): Myrddin and Nell, two of the king's companions, have a secret that neither has ever been able to face: each has seen that on a cold and snowy day in December, Saxon soldiers sent by Modred will ambush and kill King Arthur. Together, they must decide what they are willing to do, and to sacrifice, to avert that fate.

The Good Knight (novel): Intrigue and rivalry among princes casts a shadow on the court of the king of north Wales. When a royal groom is murdered on the way to his wedding, the bride's brother tasks Gareth and Gwen, his two best detectives, with bringing the killer to justice.

The Last Pendragon (novella): Rhiann knows that demons walk the night. She has been taught to fear them. But from the moment Cade is dragged before her father's throne, beaten and having lost all of his men to her father's treachery, he stirs something inside her that she has never felt before. When Cade is revealed to be not only Arthur's heir but touched by the sidhe, Rhiann must choose between the life she left behind and the one before her--and how much she is willing to risk to follow her heart.

Romantic Farm: A powerful, life-changing read.

Just when she decided she could never be fully happy, he did something unthinkably kind and caring.


A powerful, life-changing story.



She yearns for the freedom and space of her earlier years, but seems impossibly trapped in her new life. Can she find a way out to live the life she loves with the man she loves?

Ruth grew up on her family farm but due to tragic circumstances, she had to move to a big city to make her life there. She met the love of her life, Peter and married him. In all respects of her life but one, Ruth was happy and successful.

But the gnawing pain in her heart of the loss she had experienced when she was wrenched out of her idyllic life in the country kept coming back to haunt her quiet moments.

Will this pain come between her and the man she loves so much?


Reviewers have said:

"So much emotion and so many memories in so few pages.
It takes a certain skill set to pare a lifetime of experiences and dreams into a snapshot. To paint a full, beautiful picture with so few words. To leave a reader with such feelings that will forever enlighten their futures" Avid Bookworm

"Reminds me of my father's childhood Kansas farm. I, too, bought the family farm of peaceful, grazing cattle. I could relate to Ruth's pull-at-the-heartstrings memories. She relayed her feelings well." Olive H. Pollak

"A beautiful story about a farm girl who spent her childhood in Nature. She appears to have transitioned seamlessly into the city life, but has this sense of restlessness and longing for her childhood farm life and the freedom she experienced growing up in the mountains." Colleen

"Very interesting book. Simple but it leaves you with a desire to work for your goals. Recommended to anyone who wants to succeed in life." Cristina

City of Dreams (The Paris Chronicles Book 1)
After a whirlwind courtship and marriage to dashing Frenchman Emile Daubigny, Anna, the teenage daughter of a Russian furrier, moves to Paris with her new husband, looking forward to a life of gaiety, love and comfortable affluence. The year is 1864: married life and the social scene in the most fashionable city on earth is everything Anna hoped it would be, but when Emile vanishes without trace and she is evicted, her world crumbles. As war with Prussia looms, Anna and the city she loves must struggle to survive.
This coming of age story explores the themes of friendship, love and the fragility of dreams. Nineteenth century Paris is richly evoked, from the opulent ballrooms of high society to the squalid tenements and harsh streets where the shadow of revolution grows ever darker.

City of Dreams can be read as a stand-alone novel, but the story continues in Following the Dream, now available on Kindle.
