ENCLAVE by Thomas Locke

Leave a comment

Enclave

Enclave by Thomas Locke is the first book I’ve read by the author, but it won’t be the last.

I found the book to be a slower pace than many books these days–and that’s a good thing. It gave me time to get to know the characters in a way that fast-paced books can’t.  It reminded me of the classic cowboy novels of times past. and yet it’s set in the future.  A future that is rather dismal but certainly possible. Fifty years before there was a Great Crash that left America not just fractured but broken.

This story will keep you reading but it will also make you wonder–could this happen to America?

Definitely worth reading!

 

Here’s the back cover blurb:

It’s been 50 years since the Great Crash and what was once America is now a collection of enclaves, governed on the local level and only loosely tied together by the farce of a federal government. Catawba, one of the largest and most affluent enclaves in the southern states, is relatively stable and maintains a successful business of trade with nearby enclaves, including the one at Charlotte Township. But when a new vein of gold is found beneath the feet of those in Catawba, it’s only a matter of time before trouble finds them.

Now the future of Catawba may be in the hands of an untried 21-year-old trader named Caleb. And Caleb knows that if his secret were ever to come out, he would never see another dawn.

Christmas in East Kansas by Regina Smeltzer (DAY 12)

Regina Smeltzer loves the unusual, the unexpected, and ALWAYS cheers for the underdog! Her favorite experiences include riding a runaway camel in Egypt and catching Camen in the Amazon and holding a snake-charmer’s python. Her biggest adventure was marrying a career military man and raising four children. Now five grandchildren hold her heart.  Regina writes:

I wrote my first story in grade school (Akron, Ohio), and had my first short story published at age fifteen. During my busy motherhood and nursing career years, my writing included developing protocols, writing grants, and creating workshops, as well as creating puppet shows for VBS, and providing holiday dramas for my church.

I moved from Ohio to Darlington, South Carolina in 2006, took an assistant professor position at Francis Marion University and also began teaching online as an adjunct for Indiana Wesleyan University. I love speaking to groups about my faith, my life’s challenges, and my writing journey. I currently have three novels published by Pelican Book Group, Deadly Decision, Retribution, and Light of Logan and one novella, Christmas in East Kansas.

East Kansas is the picture postcard of Christmas with the mountain peaks, wreath-covered storefronts and holiday music streaming into the streets. During the holiday season, ice skating on Miller Pond is the main social outlet for the town. A new road through the mountains will ease the town’s economic struggle, but will destroy the pond which is fiercely protected by Olivia Miller. Even though Olivia hates Thomas Baker, the man hired to build the road and destroy her family’s legacy, she also finds herself unexplainably drawn to him.

Thomas Baker plans to spend another Christmas alone until he is offered a chance to supervise the construction of a new road. His excitement fades when he finds out the job is in East Kansas, the one place he swore to never return to. Besides avoiding the man who lives there, Thomas must protect his heart against the young girl who stole it 15 years ago.

Just as Olivia and Thomas begin to kindle a relationship, history between their two families surfaces. The past threatens to kill both their futures as well as the road. Will this be the last Christmas for East Kansas?

A Christmas miracle is needed in East Kansas.

A JOURNEY TO CHRISTMAS by Clare Revell

 

Clare Revell is a British author. She lives in a small town just outside Reading, England with her husband. Her books are based in the UK, with a couple of exceptions, thus, although the spelling may be American in some of them, the books contain British language and terminology and the more recent ones are written in UK English.  The first draft of every novel is hand written.

Journey to Christmas: The only problem drama teacher Paiton Underwood had was deciding what to do for the school’s fiftieth anniversary Christmas production. Until a class altercation left her with a broken arm—and a new job.

Fraser Quirk’s first day as headmaster went from pretty good to downright disastrous in seconds. Now he’s suspending students, and dealing with an injured teacher. Not to mention the threat of school closure—of the permanent kind.

She thinks he’s bossy and overbearing. He thinks she’s a control freak. Can the schools journey to Christmas bring healing, love and a hope for the future?

 

LILLIAN’S REVIEW:

Journey to Christmas is a great way to start your own journey to Christmas this year.

It’s a wonderful story that’s guaranteed to put you in the Christmas spirit. Clare Revell’s done a great job of creating a memorable Christmas story with believable characters and a plot that will make you smile—not to mention a love story that will have you swooning.

One of my favorite things about the book is that it’s set in Great Britain where Clare lives and writes. It was enlightening to read a story set in another country.  It’s gives us a glimpse of life in Great Britain these days. Plus, it gave me a peek into their educational system—something that interests this retired educator.

Well done, Clare Revell! I’d definitely recommend A JOURNEY TO CHRISTMAS if you like romances–and who doesn’t?

A Cardinal Christmas

AMAZON LINK

Blythe loves her job and doesn’t need personal relationships, especially of the “love life” variety. Steeling herself from a recent heartbreak, Blythe focuses on furthering her successful career, but when her father needs surgery, Blythe returns home to help with the family auto shop. There, she comes face-to-face with the dreams of her past.

Werner has been content to let life pass him by. Following the death of his parents and the loss of his job, he returns to the only place he’s ever called home. He finds Blythe more breathtaking than he remembered. But her presence is only temporary and she refuses to let him in.

Can Blythe leave her career behind for a whole new life? Though her heart cries to remain with Werner, can she risk being hurt again?

Christmas Passed by Anita Klumpers (DAY 9)

Anita Klumpers is Midwest born and bred, except for a brief and exhilarating few years in Denver when she was small. She received a teaching degree sometime in the previous millennium and used it mostly to homeschool her three sons. These days Anita chases her grandchildren around, waving books at them and suggesting everyone cuddle up for a good story.

Good stories are her passion, especially if they are well-written, have a dose of humor, just a tickle of romance, and a decidedly non-gory mystery. On the other hand, she lists “Frankenstein” and “Fahrenheit 451” as two of her favorite books. Go figure. Creating skits was Anita’s first foray into writing. Always up for a challenge and a reason to postpone defrosting the freezer, she tried her hand at a full-length novel. It only took five years, but she did it!

  Daily (honestly) she marvels at how much she loves coffee and her husband; her family, friends and church. Even more, she is astonished at how much she is loved by her Lord and Savior.  Her blog is “The Tuesday Prude” ( https://thetuesdayprude.com/) and she’s had two books published by Pelican/Prism Books (“Winter Watch” and “Hounded.”)

“Christmas Passed” is part of  Pelican’s Christmas Extravaganza.

Blurb:

Dinah loves Christmas. She loves history, the old Wagner House, and the elderly women working to preserve its heritage. She loves almost everything except Mick Wagner, her childhood nemesis.

But if they want to save the Wagner House and solve a mystery that’s been hiding in the attic for almost eighty years, they’ll have to join forces. And they have to do it quickly, before one of them dies trying.

CHRISTMAS WITH THE ENEMY:

Christmas With The Enemy: A Blizzard Novel

Christmas doesn’t turn out as planned for either the Chicago Windermeres or the Montana Tuckers. Rancher Hank has never been told about the Windermere in his generation, and marketing intern, Samantha hasn’t heard about the Tucker’s son. Their fathers kindle an on-going feud over a priceless antique toy once owned by long-ago ancestors. The dads have gone so far as to forbid their families from seeing each other. Ever.

Sam checks the weather app on her cell phone before boarding an early flight. Clear skies are forecasted for the next Rocky Mountain pre-Christmas days. Her parents’ flight is scheduled to arrive later that afternoon. The family holiday vacation plans at the lodge are just what her dad’s heart doctor prescribes. Mountain folk have long repeated the legend of a great and powerful blizzard that can curtain the Rockies with no notice, trapping unsuspecting guests, ruining plans, and putting lives at risk.
