Janurary/February New Releases

Willow Vale
By Alethea Williams

            From opposite sides of an ocean, two people wounded by the Great War are fated to meet and try to rebuild their lives.  Francesca Sittoni was brought against her will to America by the husband she never loved.  Now she finds herself alone — widowed, pregnant, and with a small daughter to support.  Terrified of being deported back to the impoverished country of her birth, Francesca answers an ad placed by Wyoming rancher and former doughboy Kent Reed. 

As their contracted year together passes, Francesca begins to ask if she is cook and housekeeper to Kent…or a secretly sought mail-order bride as the neighbors insist?  Only Kent Reed, burned by mustard gas and his spoiled former wife’s desertion, knows his heart’s true desire when it comes to the beautiful Tyrolean immigrant woman now living in the uncomfortably close quarters of his small ranch house.

Alethea Williams explores the powerful pull of love and endurance through an intriguing page-turner full of heartache, romance, and overcoming hardship.  Set against the captivating frontier of Wyoming, Willow Vale is the developing saga of two strangers struggling with their own demons who manage to create a life together.

Silki, the Girl of Many Scarves: 
by Jodi Lea Stewart

How long can one girl handle the whole Ancient World by herself?
“A plan began clotting in what our biology teacher called Wetware—my brain. What if I went to Concho Mountain and confronted the Ancient? What if I gave every stinking piece of old history back and ordered him to leave? Was that normal thinking…me hashing it out with someone who almost didn’t exist?”

SILKI, A YOUNG NAVAJO GIRL, thought she’d made up Wol-la-chee, the Ancient Ant Man, on one of her horseback rides with her best friend Birdie. When Wol-la-chee shrieks into her life one summer day on Concho Mountain, Silki’s world turns upside down. With her family pushing her toward more responsibility and respect for her heritage, how can Silki find the time to solve this new and frightening mystery? And if Birdie thinks Silki has gotten her real and unreal mixed up, will that push the two girls apart or bring them back together?

Woven with Navajo language, tradition, and lore, Silki, the Girl of Many Scarves: SUMMER OF THE ANCIENT is the first book in a series of one girl’s adventures in the American Southwest.
