This is a historical novel based on the ancient battle of the Masada. In Herod's palace high on a clifftop, a community of Jews gathered for protection against the Roman army. They lived for years in security until the Romans devised a plan of attack. This is the story of four Jewish women who arrive at the palace from different directions and different backgrounds, who become as close as sisters. Together they serve as caretakers of the doves of the palace, which holds a place of importance in this fragile community. The story is filled with mysticism, magic, and beauty, alongside the horrors of battle and persecution. ~ Jane

A rollicking modern-day interpretation of the classic Greek tragedy, Oedipus Rex, this story will leave you in stitches. It has the cynicism of Tom Wolfe mixed with the absurdity of Carl Hiassen.  The novel begins with a slow dangerous seduction then picks up speed as each new character and plot twist is introduced. This story is wickedly funny, fearlessly taking on many contemporary societal themes as it builds to a thrill-ride climax of an ending.   Featured in the story is a cadre of rather despicable but entertaining characters who are caricatures of the 1980’s “Me Generation.”  The writing is superb and the story is fantastic.  I recommend it to everyone!

In one of the most imaginative plots ever conceived, many themes take turns on center stage to produce a lively and engaging story. An intricate plot leads a simple country boy, Wheeler Burton, from his early goals of trying to perfect a killer spit ball on his little league team, to becoming an iconic rock star and then a successful author. But it seems that Wheeler, this magical hero, has more to accomplish, when at the age of forty-seven he mysteriously finds himself back in time in turn-of-the-20th-century Vienna. An accurate depiction of this time and place is woven into the story: Change is in the air, modern society is emerging, and young intellectuals from around the world—many of whom will become famous—are all together practicing café politics. This book is destined to become a classic. ~ Jane

In a society where the distance between the haves and the have-nots grows every day, this book is a timely and inspiring resource. It attempts to help us align the soulful intentions that we all have with the way we direct the flow of money through our lives. Twist is both a fundraiser and a consciousness raiser, speaking from her heart to bring about dramatic change in the relationship between people and their money. Her goal is to alter the view of money as a scarcity, which produces toxic results, and to see it instead as a carrier of our finest aims and as an opportunity to nourish the things we most care about. This book is filled with stories of individuals, organizations and corporations already practicing this approach. Whether we have a little or a lot of money, the author's words can help us live with integrity and be happier doing it. ~ Jane

What could be called a memoir is more like a wild adventure, so fasten your seat belts! A spiritual journey of nearly 20 years takes Jessica Maxwell from a dubious skeptic, to a believer, to a healing holy woman. Along the way she attracts many spiritual characters including an enlightened pig farmer and a golf-loving Indian mystic. She connects a past life with her present situation, experiences energy bodies of several ascended masters, and has visitations from departed friends. Maxwell tells her story with great humor, joy, and compassion—and without proselytizing. We learn from this rollicking ride is that there is an amazing and powerful spiritual aspect to life if you are willing to show up, and are paying attention. ~ Jane

This haunting and beautifully written story is set in Ceylon in the mid-1800's during a time of civil unrest between peasants and colonialists. The land and people are vividly depicted; the lushness of the lifestyles, even the smells of the place come through the writing. A complex and powerful relationship develops between a colonial governor's wife and her Tamil servant, as together they work to capture images on glass in the earliest days of photography. A mounting civil war adds suspense and drama to this incredible story. ~ Jane
