Well of Sins - Richard King,Bonnie King Summary

BOOK DESCRIPTION All civilizations have a story or myth of an Armageddon, a great war where good and evil will clash, fighting for the fate of the Universe. Some say good will triumph, others say not. In the time of Troy, three god-forged items were crafted. None of the gods who made these artifacts knew of the vital role each will play in that battle until history has molded them to its own needs. From Troy through Moses and to the Emperors of Rome, these items have been influenced by the sins and virtues of those who held them, and in return they have influenced their holders. From one hand to another they have been passed, through the generations. Only centuries after their making will their final purpose be known. No one truly knows when Armageddon is supposed to begin, but many believe it is right around the corner. They may very well be right. A time approaches where these artifacts will be sought; whether for good or evil remains to be seen. But to understand what these items are, it must be told how they came to be. It all started in Troy, with a little girl who loved a particular god very much.





This book has been called short story, fiction, literature. The stories cover a wide range of genres. It contains a bit of soft, science fiction, easy philosophy, and several intense love stories. If the question should come up in conversation as to why one should not tempt the Creator this story, "The Stranger's Touch", will offer a very good reason why you should avoid that action like the black plague. This love story, "A Desert Blooms", proves love can bloom anywhere, even in the middle of a war zone. This next story is about an engagement ring, found on a country road, and it opens a story about one man who died in war and one man who lived and the woman who lost the ring. The two men were on the same bomber that was shot down over France. Another story offers the horror for a man who was convicted of murder, and sent to prison for life; he's innocent, but he cannot prove it, and he decides to escape. A reporter tells this story, with a good deal of empathy. It was a heart rending tale of sorrow and frustration. The Creator moves in all these stories.

Forced to Love - Sky Alexander Summary

The Fires of Love & Hate" is a sweeping historical saga of a woman who is given advantages in life through circumstances beyond her control, how she deals with them and how she lives her life. Hattie Morran is from a poor family in Missouri. She gains the love and affection of an older woman, Rebecca Garland, who wants Hattie to marry her son, Abner. Rebecca is planning to leave all her wealth to Hattie, bypassing both her son and husband. This of course leads to deception and betrayal, something to be expected when lives are turned upside down. The difficulties that Hattie goes through show how determined she can be and that she must continue on no matter what happens. According to the author, this story is loosely based on his family history. My take: This is a good story for those who like romances based on some truth, a bit of history and some legends, a book filled with rich settings and culture that is very character-driven. By Pam Brewer Idaho Statesman "My fortune, my dear, is mine to do with as I please. It is not Jess's money nor is it Abner's, and it would please me immensely to give everything to you. I can only imagine the pleasure it will bring me to see my fortune in the hands of a beautiful and intelligent young woman like yourself." "But Mrs. Garland . . . ," Hattie tried to protest. "Now, you listen to me, Miss Hattie. There are a few things we need to get straight, right now. From now on you're going to have to call me either Mother or Rebecca, but not Mrs. Garland. And from this moment, Hattie, it's going to be you and me. .. against them. We'll play this 'man's game' with Jess and Abner, and by all that is holy, we'll win! When you marry Abner and become my daughter-in-law, there isn't a court in the land in which they could challenge what I've done and win." "But what about their anger?" Hattie asked. "Jess and Abner will be furious." "Furious doesn't even begin to describe how they're going to react. Even though I probably shouldn't, I am going to set them up with handsome allowances. What can they do? I'm of sound mind. So, Miss Hattie, when you marry Abner, I will give you nine-tenths of my fortune, and the remainder will be yours at my death."

But there is one major difference, and it isn't the flying car, which we might already have were it not for the government's promotion of roads and the central plan that manages transportation.
