More > running of their own lives, and women who only lived for their men who were then slain in battle. Locale and Time: “Korinna – Daughters of the Fire, I,” begins during the first of the three Mithriadic Wars fought between the Kingdom of Pontus and the Republic of Rome for control of Anatolia/Asia Minor, from 89 B.C. onward. Ephesus, Sardis and Pergamum, three famous cities of Antiquity, provide the stage upon which the novel revolves. Korinna, an orphan novice of Artemis, and the “Holy Women” (priestess-prostitutes of Aphrodite) Melitta and Chrysanthé, born during a time of chaotic transition in Anatolian history that pitted not only nation against nation, but parent against child, were truly Daughters of the Fire that had swept this ancient land.< Less

In Out of the Wild, we meet a Nevada cowboy and a guest ranch owner whose lives are woven together by an injured mustang. When Henry McBride, a cowboy with a drinking problem, comes looking for a job... More > at a guest ranch, the owner, Jess King, thinks it will be good to have an extra hand for the endless work her ranch generates. For Henry, still grief-stricken over the death of his wife and young son 17 years earlier, it’s just a way to get enough money to buy his next drink before he moves on. It isn’t long before two pivotal events occur: Henry crosses paths with Chad, the ex-ranch manager, and a young mustang stallion that Jess has agreed to train arrives at the ranch. What transpires is a story not only of redemption—moving beyond our deepest wounds and discovering a life we never dreamed we could live—but also a glimpse into ways of looking at horses, and perhaps even ourselves, with new eyes.< Less

More > define the modern black in America today. What do I mean? What was your reaction to the title of this book? Did you see someone harshly spit that word out in a southern drawl?
