It was meant to be a two-week holiday to celebrate her sister's birthday, but for Schapelle Corby it ended up a waking nightmare. Arrested at Denpasar airport after marijuana was found in her luggage, she became the victim of every traveller's darkest fear. Over four kilograms of drugs had been planted in her bag after she'd checked it in and she was forced to face the consequences of someone else's crime in a country where the penalties for drug smuggling are among the harshest in the world. Her trial and conviction became one of the biggest news stories of the decade and her family watched in horror as she was sentenced to 20 years in jail. Yet despite the huge media coverage, the one voice the public never properly heard was Schapelle's. Now, in this compelling book, she tells her own story: of being wrenched from a carefree holiday and incarcerated in a stinking police cell and of learning to survive - in the squalor, discomfort and violence of an Indonesian jail. It is an account like no other and will be one of the most unforgettable books you'll ever read.
It was a hot California night in August, 1969. Leno LaBianca sat in his living room reading the newspaper story of the terrible death of the young actress Sharon Tate & six others. He shuddered. Having seen enough violence in Nazi Germany to last him a lifetime, he turned to the sports page. He was thankful his own children had so far been spared the face of war. Nice kids, he thought with satisfaction. He hoped to see them tomorrow for his birthday. But for Leno there would be no more birthdays, no more tomorrows. Monday morning's headlines would scream the LaBiancas as the next victims of unknown, crazed mass murderers on the loose in a terrified Southern California. NO MORE TOMORROWS is the true story of three generations of the LaBianca family. It does not feature tabloid sensationalism, but rather a view from within. Through flashbacks, we are introduced to life in southern Italy & a more gentle time in Los Angeles from 1910 to 1970. We share the courtship of Alice & Leno from their first glances at Franklin High School through their wartime correspondence. But it is not just a story of the close-knit LaBianca family who succeeded in building a grocery empire. It is the story of Leno & how he is torn between his respect for Italian traditions & his intense desire to be independent. But, behind it all, is the love story of Alice & Leno, their differing approaches to life, & where fate & these approaches led them.
No More Tomorrows is hands-down, one of the most touching novels that I have
ever read. Then again, that should not come as a surprise, in that Rodney

KARI'S DESTINY NO MORE TOMORROWS is a "must read" book for any family involved with a terminally ill child. It takes the reader through the terrible ordeal of dealing with doctors and hospitals to get a diagnosis; then a detailed description of the emotional impact on the family as time is balanced between the child who is ill and other children; and lastly, in a loving way shows that there is life after death for the family as they deal with their loss. Claire and Joe will help you to know that you are not alone in dealing with your own sadness and loss, while showing you how to remember the good times, too. Dreams, a miraculous way to open the window to one's soul, help analyze the inner workings of the conscious mind by opening the door to understanding oneself. When first writing about my daughter Kari, I shared insights which seemed to have the potential to prepare me for what might lie ahead for our family. Although I tried to ignore them, they haunted me throughout her lifetime. Perhaps you can relate, perhaps not. Think about it... Have you ever had a dream about something so terrible happening to a loved one that it woke you up with your heart racing and tears streaming down your cheeks? I have! Did you ever have your child tell you they were going to die and go to heaven, because Jesus needed them? I did! Do you ever wonder how you could find the strength to deal with a devastating tragedy, and yet keep your faith? I still do. Kari's Destiny No More Tomorrows, the story of a mother's ordeal and her little girl's courage in the face of crisis, shows how one family coped with heartbreak in the past, and how they are faring now, with more unexpected challenges in their lives today.

Indentured Scholars, is a suspense/thriller that creatively explores the ongoing social dilemma of urban education. A long-secreted academic academy has been discovered by Synthia Godbold, an ambitious, yet hesitant, anchorwoman. The problem with this highly successful preparatory academy is that, for almost ten years, it requires total separation between child and his or her family. Disadvantaged children are propelled into intellectual leadership and financial success, but the social "trade-off" remains highly controversial. Synthia's investigative journey surprisingly leads her into the back offices and sanctuaries of African American business, church and political leadership. Even Synthia's own home begins to reveal its own guarded fears as her new husband must decide whether to support or sabotage his wife's journalistic efforts. Characters and conversations warmly explore the cultural and social dynamics that highlight the educational chasm of the urban child.
