“Betty Hafner eloquently writes about an abusive relationship . . . a powerful example of how people can gather the courage and insight to create a better life.” -Rosalind Wiseman, New York Times bestselling author

Multi Award-Winning Author

It was 1969, and all the rules were changing, when Betty, a woefully single French teacher on Long Island, met the handsome but edgy new teacher at her school, a hippie just back from Woodstock.

His vitality opened up a new world to her—but when they married, his rages turned against her, and often ended with physical violence.

Like millions of women who discover they’ve married an abusive man, Betty was forced to make daily decisions—to suppress her feelings or risk confrontation, to keep it secret or report, and ultimately, to live with it or leave.

Part memoir, part warm-hearted look at the ’70s, and part therapeutic journey, Not Exactly Love: A Memoir is an intense and inspirational story of a woman who grew from her experience.

“A perfect thriller from Dina Santorelli – heart-stomping, emotion-packed and utterly surprising. Readers will be gripped by the tightly woven story and richly layered characters. A terrific read!” -Ellen Meister, author

In Albany, New York, the governor’s infant daughter disappears without a trace from her crib at the Executive Mansion. Hours later, newly divorced and down-and-out writer Jamie Carter is abducted from the streets of Manhattan. Jamie is whisked upstate, where she is forced by her captor, Don Bailino, an ex-war hero/successful businessman, to care for the kidnapped child in a plot to delay the execution of mobster Gino Cataldi – the sixth man to be put to death in six years by hardliner Governor Phillip Grand.

What prevails is a modern-day thriller about family ties, loyalty, murder, betrayal, and love that’s told in deftly interweaving narratives that follow the police investigation of the missing Baby Grand, the bad guys who took her, and the woman who must find the strength to protect her.

Early History of the Christian Church – Amazon

“I truly enjoyed reading this book. It is loaded with a great many details about the early Christian Church and the early Christians.” -William B.

From its Foundation to the End of the Fifth Century.

Louis Duchesne’s Early History of the Christian Church is a classic and seminal account covering the years from the founding of Christianity to the end of the fifth century.

This is the first volume of a three piece work regarded as one of the most important records of the beginning of the Christian Church, serving as a standard introduction to the Church’s history for many years. This volume spans the time from the founding of the Church to the end of the third century.

Duchesne covers the Church’s dealings with the Roman Empire and its various emperors, the relationship between Judaism and Christianity, the Paschal Controversy and the spread of the religion to the east and into Africa.

Condemned by the Church in 1912 for being too “Modernist”, Duchesne’s work was reinstalled into Church history by Pope Paul VI in 1966 and remains one of the preeminent sources for early Christian scholars.

Orthodox Catholic historian Warren H. Carroll, the late founder of Christendom College, lauded the work as “excellent and thorough”.

Louis Duchesne (1843-1922) was a French church historian of first rank. He was ordained to the priesthood in 1887 and completed his theological studies at Rome. His interest in the history of the early church was intensified by his travels in Greece and Asia Minor. He became a professor of ecclesiastical history at the Institut Catholique in Paris in 1885. In 1895 he was nominated director of the French School at Rome, a position he held until his death. He was elected a member of the French Academy in 1910. He died in 1922, in Rome, and is buried in the cemetery of Saint-Servan.

“I am impressed with the writing. The story unfolds in such a smooth way and the characters are extremely well done. Can’t wait to read another one.” -Gail H.

Matia Evans has it all, except for one thing: she can’t see color. With an adopted family who loves her, a company she helps her father run, and more prospects than she knows what to do with, she’s in no place to complain that her world is limited to shades of gray, black, and white.

Her inability to perceive color isn’t the only strange thing about her: all souls have shadows, and she can see them. Unfortunately, there are humans who are worse than monsters. Worse, there are real monsters in the world, and they view humans as prey or as mates.

If Matia doesn’t want to become a victim, a pawn, or a trophy bride of the supernatural, she must use every bit of her strength and cunning. Her freedom and survival depend on embracing the darkest parts of her soul, but if she does, she risks becoming the newest—and most dangerous—monster of all.
