Explanation of the Book:

“A HUMDINGER . . . A MASTERLY TALE TOLD WITH CLARITY AND VERVE.” –The Times (London) The Avatars are immortal and live like kings–even though the empire is dying. Their immortality is guaranteed by magic crystals whose influence is now waning, overwhelmed by the sheer power of a great flood and a sudden ice age. But when two moons appear in the sky, and the ruthless armies of the Crystal Queen swarm across the land bringing devastation and terror, the Avatars unite with their subjects to protect their universe. As the cities face imminent destruction, three heroes emerge. Talaban, a warrior haunted by tragedy; Touchstone, the mystic tribesman seeking his lost love; and Anu, the Holy One, the Builder of Time. And when all seems lost, two others enter the fray: Sofarita, the peasant girl who will inspire a legend, and the madman, Viruk, who will become a god. . . .

Explanation of the Book:

Robert Flynn's new novel, Echoes of Glory centers on a fictitious Texas county that embraces its legends, but not its actual history. Set in the Reagan era, the novel exposes shared myths as lies and the truth, lacking all comfort. In his inimitable style Flynn paints a portrait of the denizens of the county who tacitly embrace the legend as all too human and all too frail. Overshadowed by the accomplishments of adjacent Doss County, Mills County clings to its legends—the legendary Mills brothers. One brother had died at the Alamo, one at Goliad, three had fought at San Jacinto. The three survivors marched into the center of Texas bringing with them stories of heroism and acorns from the San Jacinto battlefield. According to tradition, they planted an oak tree for each hero who had died at the Alamo. Then there was Timpson Smith, sole survivor of Second Platoon of Marine reserves, who had prevented the North Korean army from driving U.S. and U.N. forces into the sea. To honor their memory the county erected a monument, "Second to None," topped with the heroic figure of Timpson Smith. But there is a less heroic side of Mills County. When Deputy Sheriff Larry Maddin decides to run against Sheriff and Local Hero Timpson Smith, and a drama professor at the university announces that he will write a play depicting the true story of Second Platoon, many fear the dark underside of Mills County will be exposed.

Explanation of the Book:

It's 1937, the eve of World War II. At twenty-six years old, Rezsi Lehrer leaves Munkacs, a small charming city located deep within a remote corner of the Carpathian mountains and travels alone to the United States. War breaks out and Eastern European borders are sealed. Rezsi's family is trapped in Czechoslovakia and the packages she sends home are returned unopened. When the war ends, Rezsi discovers her parents, two brothers and scores of relatives perished in the Holocaust. Gypsy Music Street is the story of one woman's endless sorrow and guilt she suffers at the loss of her family, the family she left behind "to die alone." Yet she still yearns to return to her town, "the little Paris of the East," to see it just one more time. But after the war, countries borders are redrawn and Mukacevo is no longer located in Czechoslovakia. It becomes completely closed off within the iron grip of the Soviet Union and the political climate is one of Cold War. Mukacevo is off limits for travel. As the years pass, Rezsi reminisces, sharing her longing and grief about the past with her daughter Bobbie. And when she dies an old woman, her dream unfulfilled, Bobbie is driven by her own loss and grief to make this journey home for her mother, and for herself. Adventures in Budapest, Ukraine and Israel make Gypsy Music Street an enthralling memoir of love and loss. Yet, it is also a story of the overwhelming joy a daughter experiences when she travels back in time and discovers her own torn roots.

Explanation of the Book:

A song book that highlights that inside everyone there is a perfect and loving heart, and that if we uncover our perfection and recognise it in others we can change the world for the better. The song takes you through the personal journey of a little monster who discovers his self worth is not defined by his physical characteristics or by the definitions placed on him by others, but by how he allows his light and love to shine. Once he understands his own value he is able to see the perfection in others even when they are hurtful. He then goes on to show that if we all recognised the perfection in each other and acted from a place of love we can change the world to a better place. "Let us live the perfection that we are and uncover ourselves to shine like a star. Our potential never stops to spread love on this earth, it is why we are here, it is the reason for our birth."

Explanation of the Book:

"I saw freedom in the horizon. I knew I'd never have it for myself, but I would have it for my daughters." And she did. With abundant humor and wit, Maxine Darrah steered her way through the conservative social mores of the fifties. She donned the regulation apron and kept her home sparkling clean. But her eyes and heart were full of mischief. Her children would learn what was precious and how to find joy in the smallest everyday events. And above all ... they'd become free spirits. In these thirteen charming vignettes written by her daughter almost a half century later, the love of a remarkable women for her children shines through in every escapade. In one story, a little girl sobbing over an awkward class photo is cleverly lured into seeing herself as the luckiest rather than the ugliest child in her class. In another, Church is abandoned one Sunday morning and God is found basking on a moss-covered log in the spring sunshine. Lessons had to be learned and Maxine Darrah made sure that they were and that they were never forgotten. Each of these tales dances towards a final twist ... one which evokes a chuckle or a tear. A heart warming read!
