In the early 1960s, Ruby, a spunky unwed teen mother, was wooed and won over by the founder of the McCloud Home. Now, forty years later, the historic property has been converted into an inn that Ruby runs with one of her daughters, Jill. When Jill's fourteen-year-old daughter begins to search for the identity of her father, she sets in motion events that will test the bonds that bind mothers, daughters, and sisters. Jill unwittingly aids the forces of upheaval when she agrees to host the wake of the town matriarch. As the guests-including the matriarch's handsome son and Jill's vivacious, irresponsible sister Jocelyn- return to the small town, the convergence of people and memories uncovers rivalries, sparks romance, recalls heartbreak, and reveals a shocking family secret, one that could separate the McCloud women forever or lead them to the renewal of their powerful, enduring connection.

Longing For Winter: A Black Man's Saga is a biographical novel, spoken through the words of Noel Sheridan, the main character. I chose to write this book as a catharsis of sorts. While most of the characters in this work are fictitious, as are some of the scenarios, the main storyline is factual. With respect to the characters that are based on actual individuals, such as myself, the names have been changed. Being that I have endeavored to address such a controversial subject: race relations, and exposed aspects of American society that are taboo, some may be taken aback by what they read. Further, the reader may wonder if some of the things mentioned in this story actually take place in our society; I can say yes, emphatically! I am most confident in making such a bold statement, because it is rooted in truth. In fact, as I submit this work, I am totally dispossessed. Having experienced such a tumultuous ten years, I wanted to set the record straight about how horribly African American men are far too frequently treated in our society.

Faced with the sale of the century-old family summer house on Cape Cod where he had spent forty-two summers, George Howe Colt returned for one last stay with his wife and children. This poignant tribute to the eleven-bedroom jumble of gables, bays, and dormers that watched over weddings, divorces, deaths, anniversaries, birthdays, breakdowns, and love affairs for five generations interweaves Colt's final visit with memories of a lifetime of summers. Run-down yet romantic, The Big House stands not only as a cherished reminder of summer's ephemeral pleasures but also as a powerful symbol of a vanishing way of life.

This work brings together for the first time the interpretation of the best authorities respecting the evidences, historical, archaeologic, inscriptive, and deductive, of Norse discovery, occupation, and colonization of America five centuries before the time of Columbus. The subject, though it has engaged in a general way the attention of historians for a long time, has only within recent years been brought into great prominence by a serious study of the Saga writers of Iceland and Scandinavia. The beginning of this interest dates from 1837 in which year was published, by the Royal Danish Society of Northern Antiquaries, a large quarto volume of old Icelandic documents, in which the proofs were set forth that the discovery credited to Columbus was anticipated by sea-roving Norsemen five hundred years earlier. This great work was edited by Prof. C. C. Rafn, founder of the Royal Danish Society, and was the result of painstaking labor and expensive research by that very distinguished antiquarian.
