Lady Amelie Wainwoode’s secret identity is secure until the arrival of the scandalous Lord Stratfield. Determined to protect her good name and clandestine art career, she counters his blackmail. Now she must leave the sanctuary of her aunt’s home in London for his estate at White Ash to fulfill the bargain. Her presence unveils more than the hushed history which binds their families.

David Ambrose, Lord Stratfield, has endured deceit, censure and scandals. Even so, he does not hesitate to manipulate rumors of his disreputable behavior to his best advantage. He gives the daughter of the man he loathed for years no choice—comply with his plans and accept his terms or he will expose and ruin her.

Book Reviews:

“This is a cookbook for those who are on gluten-free diets. It begins with a wealth of information on facts, symptoms, associated conditions, and common misdiagnoses related to Celiac disease. Resources to support groups and organizations that can provide more information are included. To complete the information on Celiac disease is a thorough section on gluten-free grains and flour mixes with recipes for the mixes. I think this was an excellent cookbook. I would highly recommend this cookbook for everyone whether they require a gluten-free diet or not.”

– Kathryn Svendsen

“Cookbook:Wonderful Wheat-Free Recipes for the Whole Family can be used by vegetarians and vegans, as not only does it contain wheat-free recipes, some are egg and dairy free too.
Some of the recipes are new takes on traditional ones, while others are new. There are ideas for all courses including desserts, and they are deliciously mouth-watering!
I can wholeheartedly recommend this cookbook to everyone, as it is most informative as well as having some great recipes in it!”

BOOK REVIEW: Gail Briggs Nolen’s “Memories of Merritt Island: Birthplace of Ken

Memories of Merritt Island_Cover

Gail Briggs Nolen offers an intimate portrayal of her two bloodlines in Memories of Merritt Island: Birthplace of Kennedy Space Center. This story of Merritt Island is recounted through the lives of the Benecke-Briggs family.

Briggs Nolen shares the triumphs and failures of the homesteading lifestyle that was prevalent throughout Merritt Island. This rich history is brought to life with love letters, family photographs, government records, maps, and news articles. We learn about the struggles of a young German immigrant who yearns for financial stability and the warmth of his distant lover, become acquainted with the brave Aunt “alligator Lena,” and even told about the great family piano that not even Liberace could buy. The reader travels straight through this family’s lineage up until the eventful moment when their dreams were dashed by the United States government. Progress demanded change. John F. Kennedy ushered in the age of space exploration. Merritt Island was the location of choice.

Memories of Merritt Island is definitely a successful endeavor at passing on a special family heritage. The sentiments of the individuals who enjoyed the island before the Kennedy Space Center are quite clear. This historical piece is a gentle reminder that legacies are built on hard work, dedication, and ingenuity. Land lovers, adventurers, and history buffs can appreciate this work.
