Chickamauga: A Novel Of The American Civil War

by Blair Howard

Chickamauga – A Novel of the American Civil War – is the story of a great battle of the Civil War and the people who fought it, many of them real and some of them the product of the author’s imagination. Though the words they speak are but shadows moving on a tapestry of heroism and selflessness, their deeds are etched forever on the fields and forests at Chickamauga, the River of Death.

Chickamauga is the story of the generals who planned the grand strategies that would be played out by lesser but braver men, and it’s the story of heroism, desperate deeds, and death and destruction on a scale the like of which had never been seen before. With more than 37,000 casualties, Chickamauga was the bloodiest two days of the war.

Chickamauga is the story of Jesse Dixon and Patrick McCann, two boys in blue uniforms who must grow up before their time, and of Billy Cobb, a Confederate soldier who found himself at war, not only with the Union enemy, but also with his conscience. And it’s the story of Sarah Bradley, the daughter of a southern farmer, and Blake Winter a Yankee colonel who fell in love with her.

Chickamauga is the story of ordinary people in extraordinary times.

Journey Into Consciousness

by Shelly Wilson

Journey into Consciousness may revolve around my story, but within each one of us is a story that is being written each and every day. We are constantly writing the story of our lives based on choices – whether we make these choices ourselves or they are made for us. The directions those choices take us form the foundation for our learning, spiritual growth, and even our happiness. From the moment we breathe that first breath of life to the moment that final breath exits our body, our life story is being written. As we become more aware and mindful of our own personal power, we are better able to make conscious choices, and give ourselves permission to take control of our destiny instead of leaving it up to fate.

I know that learning to love and accept myself for who I am and embracing all of my experiences as opportunities for learning and growth have been the catalysts for transformation in my life. I also know that this spiritual journey of mine has strengthened and fortified my soul and psyche so that I know that anything is possible, and that we, human beings, can learn to live the life that we deserve to live.

Over the years, I’ve learned that letting go of fear is a crucial part of spiritual growth, and as a human being, I know that fear is what has held me back and inhibited my ability to write this book for a long time. My personal fears about this recounting of my personal journey into consciousness revolve around the uncertainty of what is safe to share.

I acknowledge that the memories of my experiences are solely my perception – my viewpoint. As I tell my story, I do so with the intention of assisting others in awakening to the truth of who they really are and to help them live the life they desire. I apologize here and now if, as my early memories unravel, I inadvertently cause anyone hurt or pain, but my memories are crucial to the telling of my story, and it was Spirit who showed me which memories to share.

The memories I was shown are the pivotal ones that impacted me greatly in my early years. I was shown the memories and choices that molded and shaped me – creating who I am today. By shifting my perceptions, I have freed myself from self-imposed limitations. My past no longer defines me; yet I acknowledge the experiences that have made me the person I am today.

Days Like This: Jackson Falls Book 3

It wasn’t supposed to happen this way.

For nearly two decades, they were best friends. Business partners. Musical collaborators. He was her rock; she was his beacon of light, both of them willing to open up a vein and bleed for the other. The one thing they weren’t supposed to do was fall in love. That wasn’t part of the plan. He was supposed to find Ms. Right and settle down. She was supposed to live happily ever after with charismatic rock icon Danny Fiore.

But fate had other plans for Casey Fiore and Rob MacKenzie. They did fall in love, the kind of love that addles your brain and tears out your heart and turns your world upside down.

The kind that leads to forever.

But forever doesn’t come without a price tag attached. Marriage, even to your best friend, can be a bumpy ride. Still haunted by the ghost of Casey’s first husband, they’ve spent their first year of marriage tiptoeing around the elephant in the living room. While Rob struggles with long-held insecurities, Casey is gradually blossoming into the woman she was always meant to be. But with change comes uncertainty, and even as she finds herself overwhelmed by the ferocity of her feelings for her new husband, Casey wrestles with undivided loyalties and the unexpected changes this marriage has wrought in her.

When the fifteen-year-old daughter Rob never knew about comes to live with them, the quiet life they’ve carved out for themselves in Casey’s rural Maine hometown is turned upside down. As Casey and Rob face the challenges of parenting a rebellious teenager while trying to become a family, they unravel secrets and discover truths about themselves and their relationship, truths that, if not dealt with, could threaten their future as a couple.
