Caroline Wolfe is in a race against time to remember who she is, the accident that left her in a coma and the people who claim they want to help her.
With the help of a woman who claims she was her college roommate, Caroline must find the past she is certain was taken from her before her future is taken too.
The Castle of Chadwick by Corine MacIntosh
Young Adult
Cover art by Pat Evans
Ernie Chadwick is a bookish sixteen year old and not the adventurous type. He was named after a 16th century uncle, King Ernest Chadwick. Legend spoke that the King never really died after a gypsy foretold his doom. A night of celebration ended with the King’s youngest son murdering his elder brother, to claim the title as heir to the throne. Hence! The King vowed to live forever, thus denying his younger son the throne.
Whilst Chadwick sleeps in the sixteenth century, unaware to Ernie in the present world, he is the one born into the Chadwick bloodline with the flame-red hair. Only he can turn back time and break the Chadwick curse as his destiny in life is to slay the dragon. But the timid teen cannot kill a mouse, let alone a dragon. Can Ernie reverse history? And can one princess’s love for him convince him to honor his duty to the Chadwick family, past and present?

Tomorrow Never Comes by Vera Berry Burrows
Cover art by Trisha FitzGerald
Marriage, a new home and a new baby, Joel Thomas, all make up a perfect life for Nell Winston until suddenly her husband is no longer there and she turns into a woman possessed of compulsion to rule her son. Her strength is drawn from her unwavering sense to control until the young Joel decides to make a stand against her. Her domineering, self-absorption, along with egotistical stubbornness, takes her into a life that becomes her worst nightmare.
Joel’s apparently selfish show of independence leads him along an extremely rocky road to eventual success in the Swinging 60’s and with a complete reversal of roles, he takes charge of his mother’s life. Will the new start in a different country bring the fulfillment they are both seeking?
