SHADOW AND SALVATION by Vanessa Knipe
For centuries, a tiny band of men (and they are all
men) have held the monsters and forces of nature at bay. Without them, hungry elementals would swarm over Britain, consuming
life for their fuel and demanding sacrifices to restore their powers. Operating out of a secret arm of the Church of England,
these witch-finders protect ordinary people, allowing them to live their lives. And their center, the College of St. Van Helsing,
attempts to bring new generations of witch-finders to the noble cause. Burnout and the toll of the job doesn’t make
it easy and the College’s insistence that only men are qualified drives many who would best serve to become witches
A witch-finder considering abandoning the church and using magic to expand his family estate confronts an elemental
who promises him sex and power. A drunk student finds his own power being used to bring forth a legendary ghost dog. An angry
storm disguises the yearning of a mother for her child—and her willingness to destroy a city if witch-finder magic kills
that child. A Neolithic dog seeks to protect its family, still confused about why it was abandoned. An angry elemental has
found a loophole in the wards that bind it to the earth and plans its escape on the day that doesn’t exist.

Dudgeon's Bridge by Adrian L. Youseman
Genre: Historical/Crime/Thriller/Suspense/English History
War/English Civil War/Roundheads/Royalists
English soil, so treasured, hasn’t always been a green and pleasant
land. The times when life was cheap and governments were proved with butchery and bloodshed, are, in reality, only a few hundred
years behind us. The history we take for granted is littered with the prejudices of originating scholars and the editing of
the victors from any given age.
17th century Civil War split families and towns, killing by proportion more English men than WW1 and WW2 combined. History
has polished its account to let us believe that somehow it was the birth of our democratic nation, but this was no rite.
Dudgeon’s Bridge takes you through these times.
A boy is born into a town beset by the worst of these troubles and must struggle to make
his mark, whilst trying to look after his family. We know too well in today’s world that one simple life can change
the world we know, but little of those in the past who did. This is the account that’s waiting to be told, for the monstrosity
of war creates its children and just like so many of them, the truth is so often the first to be orphaned.

Women of the Way: Embracing the Camino by Jane V. Blanchard
Genre: Travel/Travel & Holiday/Europe/Adventure/Non-Fiction
What do you like most when reading about adventures: descriptions about the terrain, the culture, the challenges,
the personal growth, the interactions between other adventures? Women of the Way successfully combines all these elements
in a heartfelt and personal recounting of Jane V. Blanchard's 2011 five-hundred mile pilgrimage on the Camino de Santiago--hiking
from St-Jean-Pied-de-Port in France over the Pyrenees to Roncesvalles in Spain, and then westward across northern Spain to
Santiago de Compostella.
Though Women of the Way is about Jane's journey
on the Camino de Santiago and discussions with women she met along the way, this is not a "chic" book. It is about
embracing the Camino. Jane discusses how she prepared for the Camino, the daily rituals in long-distance walking, the camaraderie,
the personal changes, and the beauty and appeal of the most popular of all the pilgrimages to Santiago de Compostela, the

character who you want to grasp by the shoulders and give her a good shake.

when they find out, so she continues to write in secret, building up a large repertoire of short stories, always about the
same character. It is the only thing she has in her life to keep her sane.
One day life takes a dramatic turn and Libby finds herself alone for the first time in
