New Arrival: The Titanic – Lily’s Story by Jamie Contreras

On April 15, 2012, it will have been 100 years since Titanic sank. Titanic set sail with 2,228 passengers and crew. Only 705 Titanic people survived.

This is the story of one of its passengers, Lily and her family. They are traveling first class with their servants and the family dog, Khloe. Lily is a rambunctious little girl that is always looking for adventure! While on board, Lily meets a little red-haired girl, name Katy Grace. Katy is traveling from Ireland with her aunt’s family to America. Katy recently lost her parents and even though her Aunt took her in, she is not welcome. Lily and Katy become quick friends and enjoy having the run of the ship. Lily’s Father was one of the designers of the Titanic and worked for Harland and Wolff, so Lily knows all about the ship from him.

Will Lily’s family survive the sinking?

Will Katy’s spiteful family survive or will an unfortunate fate place her in the care of a family that she longs for so desperately?

 

 

Jamie will be at Barnhill’s on Saturday, April 21st from 11-1 reading from and signing copies of her book.

Maria McCutchen is coming to Barnhills on Saturday, Jan 21st!!!

 

Maria McCutchen did not have time to be sick. With a husband who had just lost a job, two young sons, and a cross-country move on the horizon, who had time to be sick? Maria didn’t have time for a common cold, let alone a major medical condition. But one day while shopping in the grocery store where she had shopped hundreds of times before, she couldn’t find the milk. It was then she knew what she was feeling was more than just stress or exhaustion. There was something very wrong.

After consulting a few doctors, Maria discovered she had a rare brain cyst known as a posterior fossa arachnoid cyst—a very large brain cyst. Hearing these cysts were normally asymptomatic was of little comfort, especially because she felt her mind and body slipping away more and more every day. Normal mental and physical functions were becoming harder to control. Even if the doctors didn’t believe the cyst was a problem, she knew it was.

It would take months of living inside a shell of a person that she’d become, months of living in a mental fogginess and sometimes even physical pain, before she would finally get the medical attention she needed. It’s All in Your Head chronicles her harrowing medical odyssey and her attempts to regain some sort of semblance of her old life after treatment.

Krista Peele will be at Barnhill’s this Saturday!!!!!


We’re just like any other kids. Our talents are just a bit…extreme.
Rox, a scrappy fourteen-year-old, is just trying to survive. Living in an orphanage full of ‘gifted’ students isn’t easy. But when strange things begin to happen around Yangsly Academy, surviving becomes an even bigger challenge. Why are kids being sent away from the school at random? Could she be next? What is different about Yangsly Academy? Never one to sit on her hands, Rox gathers a gang of misfits to do some midnight sleuthing. Turning up more questions than answers, Rox’s investigation also results in a friend’s transfer to the mysterious other school. She and her quirky companions set out to find him, launching on a wild odyssey they’ll never forget. Little do they know that at the end of their path they’ll find something much larger and more nefarious than they ever dare imagine.

The Rox Chronicle is for fantasy and adventure lovers alike. Rox and her gifted companions get in scrape after scrape, overcoming through pure stubbornness and more than a little orneriness.

http://onlyatbarnhills.com/sitebuilder/images/9780895873873-255x185.jpgIn 1902, Allen published As a Man Thinketh, universally acknowledged as a classic book on self-examination. It captures the essence of Allen’s philosophy. Through his eloquent and succinct prose, Allen conveys his thesis that it is up to the individual to form his own character and create his own happiness.
In 1985, 15-year-old Bowman Gray IV lost his father to a heart attack. Later that same year, his mother gave him two gifts – a copy of As a Man Thinketh and a 35-millimeter camera. At the time, he did not fully appreciate how important these two gifts would eventually become to him.
In this gift edition, he couples his own color photographs with Allen’s timeless advice to produce an inspirational book that will stay with readers for years to come.

Green Gospel by L.C. Fiore

Charles Fiore, author of Green Gospel was recently in the store discussing his debut novel.

Fleeing the FBI, eco-terrorist Edie Aberdeen escapes to the small, rural town of Arcadia, Florida. She hopes to reinvent herself and forget her criminal past. But when she falls in with a mega-church whose pastor preaches a fiery brand of environmental fundamentalism, she must choose between abdication and one final, radical act to save the church from financial ruin.

Several unforgettable characters narrate this vivid debut novel that examines the roots of fundamentalism, the powerful sway of community, and cuts to the heart of the question of whether or not people change.

Here is a brief video taken while he was here describing why he felt compelled to write this book.

Alex Shakar, author of The Savage Girl wrote:  ” A powerfully unfolding story of the changing landscapes of our time – physical, cultural, and personal.  With Green Gospel, L. C. Fiore establishes himself as a writer of extraordinary sensitivity and insight.”

Here is another brief clip of Charles reading from his book.

Autographed copies of this book are still available at Barnhills.
