'We didn't want to be wiping porridge off the walls - we wanted places no rougher than a farm pond. The silence in these places was complete - so much so that we found ourselves speaking in whispers.' Many sailors dream of a quiet life living aboard a classic yacht. Few reach that dream following the same path as Justin Ruthven-Tyers and his wife. After a fire destroyed everything they owned, the couple decided to build their own classic sailing yacht and live aboard in the wilds of Scotland - up creeks, in rocky pools, in lovely desolate places whose descriptions would make any armchair traveller ache to go there. They started their new life by felling trees for the timber they needed to build their boat, the first unusual step in their unique story. With a wonderful turn of phrase, Justin's humorous narrative will engage those who dream of living a similar lifestyle, and inspire those motivated to attempt it.

Adopting a baby from China should be a fairy tale ending to a story of loss. But life offers no guarantees, no matter how a family is formed. Children come with needs, while middle age presents its own set of challenges. The goals from our thirties often seem hollow, unattainable or irrelevant. Illness can make its sudden devastating appearance. "Big Sister," the sequel to "Little Sister," is the story of such a family, twice blessed by adoption. Mark and Rena, the American couple who adopted the baby Mooi Mooi (now called Jennie) from "Little Sister," live in Chelmsford, Massachusetts. While adopting Jennie satisfied Rena's yearning for a child; adopting Lily, their second daughter, blew apart a marriage already edging toward divorce. It isn't Lily's fault though Mark would like to blame her, if only to get Rena angry. Yet even before Lily's arrival, he'd begun questioning his life choices, his health was declining, he'd backed away from family obligations. Then at fifty, he learns he was adopted. Always the strong one, Rena's faith in marriage is shattered when Mark leaves, apparently for a younger woman. She appears resolute, however, amidst Lily's head injury, her brother, Jim's unexpected arrival; and her best friend, Linda's problems with her son, Zach. Yet she cries each night, lonely and afraid, desperately wanting her husband. Jennie's a daddy's girl, figuring she would have favored her birthfather as well. Ashamed of her role in Lily's injury, she strives to be a better sister. Her strength is evident as she helps an unwed mother make a difficult, life-altering choice.

The U.S.S. Enterprise, under the command of Lieutenant Hikaru Sulu, is returning from a mission to deliver medical supplies to Deep Space Station C-15, one of Starfleet’s most distant installations. All is routine until the Enterprise comes within a light-year of the planet Mu Arigulon, when the ship is suddenly thrown from warp and suffers a momentary power cut, having run aground on a spatial distortion not revealed in previous scans of the system. When the pride of Starfleet hits another, much worse distortion, Dr. Leonard McCoy has his hands full caring for officers who have suddenly fallen into comas for no apparent reason. The Enterprise medical team soon discovers that the dying officers are espers—humans with a rare and abnormal level of telepathic and psychic ability. With no choice but to link to the officers’ minds in order to come to their aid, McCoy is plunged into a nightmarish dream-world . . . with the end result being nothing short of the possible destruction of the Enterprise and all aboard her. . . .

This fascinating tale of living under German occupation during World War II is told from the unique perspective of a Dutch secret agent. Highlighted by high drama, it is an epic story of life and conflict in the presence of an oppressive enemy.The anti-German struggle in the Netherlands was centered on sabotage requiring stealth and cunning. The reality of war forced many to choose between helping with the resistance, going into hiding, or leaving the country. Those who stayed and served saved countless numbers of Jewish lives and aided the war effort by covertly gathering and disseminating valuable information.----The author narrowly escaped the Germans as the British Navy came to his rescue. His story of unremitting toil to overtake an unrelenting enemy is stirring, inspiring, and unforgettable.

Hundreds of years in the future, after the collapse of the Western world, young Menelaus Illation Montrose grows up in what was once Texas as a gunslinging duelist for hire. But Montrose is also a mathematical genius—and a romantic who dreams of a future in which humanity rises from the ashes to take its place among the stars. The chance to help usher in that future comes when Montrose is recruited for a manned interstellar mission to investigate an artifact of alien origin. Known as the Monument, the artifact is inscribed with data so complex, only a posthuman mind can decipher it. So Montrose does the unthinkable: he injects himself with a dangerous biochemical drug designed to boost his already formidable intellect to superhuman intelligence. It drives him mad. Nearly two centuries later, his sanity restored, Montrose is awakened from cryo-suspension with no memory of his posthuman actions, to find Earth transformed in strange and disturbing ways, and learns that the Monument still carries a secret he must decode—one that will define humanity's true future in the universe. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.
