This book is about the lives and times of a real familynot only the struggles and the unbelievable heartaches and disappointments in our lives, but also how the Lord worked in our lives in the midst of it all. It is with godly fear and much humility that I undertake the task of writing this book as I am in no sense of the word a writer. My purpose in writing this book is to help and give courage to someone that may think his or her situation hopeless. My prayer is that God may make this book a blessing to many. Our mother was born Ida Louise Durham, on October 28, 1921, the third living child of Mrs. Bertha McQuire Durham and Mr. Jeff Durham, in Marianna, Arkansas. She attended school in Arkansas. She lost her father at the age of seven years. Life began to be difficult from that day on. It is unbelievable the hardships this lady went through, but she was a fighter from her heart. She never let the disappointments in her life get her down. She always told us, When life knocks you down, dont lay there, get yourself up. Tomorrow is another day. She truly was an example to us, her children, and to many people who came her way during her seventy-seven years of life.

Publisher: Open Road Media
Florida PI Fred Carver is back—in the final set of crime thrillers from the New York Times–bestselling author who “just keeps getting better and better” (Tony Hillerman). New York Times– and USA Today–bestselling author John Lutz has been hailed as “a major talent” by John Lescroart and “one of the masters” by Ridley Pearson. “Lutz offers up a heart-pounding roller coaster” (Jeffery Deaver) in his thrillers and “knows how to make you shiver” (Harlan Coben). “The Carver series is the finest work yet by this prolific author” (St. Louis Post-Dispatch). After a criminal’s bullet shattered not only his knee but also his career as an Orlando cop and his marriage, Fred Carver starts over as a private detective. In this award-winning ten-book series, Lutz’s “dogged Carver is a believably heroic guy, tough, scarred and able to exhibit fear and courage at the same time” (Publishers Weekly). Spark: A retired schoolteacher turns to Carver after receiving an anonymous note that her husband was murdered. Her case takes the PI into the depths of Solartown: a stately Florida retirement community where seventy is the new forty, golf carts are the only way to get around, and death from natural causes is nowhere to be found. “Down and dirty . . . a good, fast read.” —The Houston Post Torch: Carver has to approach his latest case from every angle—as members of a love triangle start suddenly dying and disappearing, beginning with the woman who hired him minutes before her death. “For a long-running series, this one is still hot . . . with lots of nice noir touches to give it texture. The dialogue is brisk and brittle, the action gets nasty when it must, and the characters are as shady as the sunny climate allows.” —The New York Times Book Review Burn: When he is accused of stalking a woman he swears he’s never met, building contractor and recent widower Joel Brant asks Carver for help clearing his name. But as the PI digs into the case, he begins to wonder who’s stalking whom? “Riveting . . . Lutz’s eye for Florida noir is impeccable . . . Top of the line.” —Publishers Weekly Lightning: An explosion at a Florida clinic causes Carver’s lover, Beth, to miscarry. The police arrest an anti-abortion fanatic, but when the violence continues, Carver pursues the bomber on his own. “Lutz is an expert—he’ll have you glued to the page.” —The Denver Post

At the Age for Love--A novel of Bangalore during World War II, is an extraordinary story of a soldier''s family waiting for his safe return from the Africa Front where he serves with a British tank unit pressing hard against the Germans in the desert of Libya. The chronicle begins with the soldier, Capt. Edward Thompson, saying goodbye to his wife Amelia and son Paddy and ends with his return at the end of the war. The story, narrated in incredible detail, tells how the boy and his mother with their relatives and friends live in this hectic military city in South India, where those who stay behind are swept along into the rushing, wild stream of British history in India during a time of war. The lives of these women--and their children--provide a bold story of Anglo-India in this multihued Indian landscape where rogues and villains and the honest, hard-working, church-going, form relationships in this bold saga as men and women cross family and racial boundaries in their search for love. The city of Bangalore with its cluster of towns around British army barracks comes alive with memorable characters and this novel follows their tense and gripping relationships. The ending, where these fun-loving characters come together in a frail boat on the peaceful Cauvery River at Seringapatnam near sunset, has much to say about life and the human mystery and the vision it offers us as we live in a changing world.
