And so begins the second book in 'THE RED COTTON FIELDS' trilogy, an epic tale surrounding three of the wealthiest families in the entire world carrying the reader through the dark days of WWI into the happier days of the roaring twenties ...
"Fields of Gold and Sorrows" begins in the allied trenches in France during the peak of World War One. One of the American wounded lying in this particular trench is Mark Royal, an heir to one of the wealthiest families in the entire world. Why would such a wealthy individual be here in the first place? Only Mark Royal knew the answer to that question and might never reveal the answer as he lie critically wounded in a muddy ditch with little chance he would make it out alive. On a sprawling piece of Georgia land known as the "Royal Farm" Mark's only sister who had just buried their father, was about to get word of another tragedy, with the news of her severely wounded brother someplace in France. "I have to travel to France and bring Mark home," Catherine said to her father's grave. "But first, I have to go find Billy. I know he's down in Florida someplace and I'll find him. I'll bring him back here where he belongs. He can oversee the farm while I'm gone to France so I can bring our brother home. Dead or alive, he will be buried on this farm like the rest of our family. I swear to you Mama and Daddy," Catherine said to the two stone markers before her, "I will bring Mark home!" Catherine wiped the tears from her eyes and walked slowly to the awaiting car. And so begins the second book in 'THE RED COTTON FIELDS' trilogy, an epic tale surrounding three of the wealthiest families in the entire world carrying the reader through the dark days of WWI into the happier days of the roaring twenties followed by the traumatic times of the great depression ending on the eve of the bombing of Pearl Harbor and the beginning of WWII. It is a story of love, war, tragedy, and the human will to survive. The saga continues in 'Fields of Gold and Sorrow'. Hope you enjoy.

Book 12 in the Magnificent Devices steampunk series! If a wedding won’t stop a war, what will? Gloria Meriwether-Astor’s belief in doing the right thing has carried her across the world and through dangers that would have felled a lesser woman. She believed that if she married the dashing Captain Fremont, she could approach the Viceroy of the Royal Kingdom of Spain and the Californias with impunity. She could convince the prince to stop the war their fathers began, and then she could return to Philadelphia with her husband, her conscience clear at last. Sadly, belief and reality are two different things. The prince agrees to her proposal on one condition—that she annul her marriage and become his wife instead! Every woman has a threshold she will not cross. Gloria has come to love her riverboat captain, and the price of peace is simply too high. But when the evil stalking the pleasant gardens of San Luis Obispo de Tolosa claims its victim, the time for belief is over and the time to act—daringly, outrageously—is at hand. Do the witches hold the key to a way out of this trap? All Gloria has to do is take up the crown of roses and play for the highest stakes. All she has to do is become the iron dragon, and start a war of her own.
In Fields of Gold, Andy has addressed headon both the opportunity that we as believers have when it comes to giving as well as the irrational fears that ...

A practical and inspirational book based on the principle of sowing and reaping. If we sow fear, what will be our harvest? And conversely, if we sow faith, what will we grow? This book moves the reader beyond fear and guilt about giving and into confidence, security, and excitement. Andy Stanley unpacks our irrational fears about money, helping us to discover that generous giving is actually an invitation for our heavenly Father to get involved in our finances and resupply us with enough seed to sow generously throughout our lifetime.

This would be easier if I were writing about someone else. Then I could change it, fatten up the thin parts and leave out the dull ones, turning them twice like frayed collars and cuffs, making them over into something more romantic than they really were, but then the remembering would be neither so painful, nor so sweet. I suppose you can't have one without the other. . . Evangeline Glennon knows plenty about life's highs and lows. Still, she feels lucky, surrounded as she is by people who care deeply: Papa, who's never lost his Irish brogue or the twinkle in his eye; endlessly practical, generous Mama; and steadfast best friend Ruby. Romance would be too much for a girl like Eva to expect. Then again, love has a tendency to find those who aren't looking for it. . . Out of a clear blue sky, a dashing young aviator makes an impossibly gentle landing in Papa's Oklahoma wheat field. After taking her up in his plane, "Slim" leaves Eva with an exhilarating new perspective--and an even more precious gift that changes her forever. But that's only the beginning. The world is changing, too--and only the strongest in body and spirit will weather what is to come. Now, while tracing from afar the progress of the brave young barnstormer she knew so briefly, Eva stitches her heart and soul into intricate quilts whose images take extraordinary form from the heartbreak and joy of parallel lives. . .

“Pomp, pageantry and epic showing-off: a vivid re-creation of the 1520 peace-promoting rally between the kings of England and France.”—The Sunday Times Glenn Richardson provides the first history in more than four decades of a major Tudor event: an extraordinary international gathering of Renaissance rulers unparalleled in its opulence, pageantry, controversy, and mystery. Throughout most of the late medieval period, from 1300 to 1500, England and France were bitter enemies, often at war or on the brink of it. In 1520, in an effort to bring conflict to an end, England’s monarch, Henry VIII, and Francis I of France agreed to meet, surrounded by virtually their entire political nations, at “the Field of Cloth of Gold.” In the midst of a spectacular festival of competition and entertainment, the rival leaders hoped to secure a permanent settlement between them, as part of a European-wide “Universal Peace.” Richardson offers a bold new appraisal of this remarkable historical event, describing the preparations and execution of the magnificent gathering, exploring its ramifications, and arguing that it was far more than the extravagant elitist theater and cynical charade it historically has been considered to be. “A sparkling new account of the Field of Cloth of Gold as an extraordinary demonstration of ostentatious rivalry.”—Suzannah Lipscomb, author of A Journey Through Tudor England “Richardson’s book seeks to throw new light on what we know of the Field itself: from how it was organized, provisioned and enacted, to the reasons such a sensational junket should have mattered—and in this it undoubtedly succeeds.”—London Review of Books
