Geraldine Birch Author- THE SWASTIKA TATTOO

THE SWASTIKA TATTOO

by Geraldine Birch

Geraldine Birch’s YA historical novel, THE SWASTIKA TATTOO, is the story of Rudolf Meier, a young German prisoner of war whose love for Nazi Germany is as visible as the swastika tattoo on his forearm.  After Rudolf and his U-boat (submarine) crew mates are captured by an American destroyer, Rudolf is sent to a POW camp in Arizona where he labors picking cotton for a Jewish farmer.  It is there that he comes face-to-face with the bigotry and intolerance he learned as a Hitler Youth.  Through long months of internment, his only joy is his friendship with the farmer’s son who shows him the real meaning of humanity, individualism and democracy.  Then, just as his repatriation to Germany is in sight, a murder in the camp makes Rudolf realize he may be the next target of the hard-core Nazis who really control the Arizona prison camp.

THE SWASTIKA TATTOO is published by Silverlake at ebooks.com and selling well in the U.K. thanks to a U.K. tweeting service.

Kerry Adrienne Author- DRUID MINE

DRUID MINE

by Kerry Adrienne

Anya’s wish for a normal date … away from the old man she is caretaker for … comes true in unexpected ways when she finds herself whisked to an ancient Irish stone circle on solstice eve.

Carrick’s decision to follow the path to become an Ovate druid has not come lightly, and he plans to spend the solstice eve in meditation unless fairies or evil spirits disrupt the circle.  When a feisty girl walks right up to the fire, more than sparks fly.

They each seek healing and a connection, but the darkness of summer is short, and once the solstice sun breaks through the circle at dawn, the magic of the night will be over.  Even Madame Eve can’t stop the day from rising.

GIRLS IN THE CULT: A JOURNEY INTO SELF DISCOVERY BY A FORMER OLD ORDER MENNONITE

by Esther Royer Ayers

Esther Royer Ayers has published a new book entitled GIRLS IN THE CULT: A JOURNEY INTO SELF DISCOVERY BY A FORMER OLD ORDER MENNONITE.  The book provides answers for “free thinkers” who ask: Why would people of religion systematically program their children to fear the outside world?  Why would the people of a religion limit a child’s education to eighth grade.  What could prominent Dr. Erik Erikson and his EIGHT STAGES IN LIFE say about my childhood religion?  How does the AMISH IN THE CITY television show fit into this book?  Books and e-books are available through Amazon and all other book sellers.   Please see my website for photos and more information: http://www.EstherRoyerAyers.com
