Seasons at the Lake House: Spring: Book 4 of a Juvenile fiction series. "What fun and adventures can be found while spending Spring Break at your grandparents' lake house? Deer tracking and horse-back riding; fishing trips and bike rides; building and planting; campfires and independence; and wildlife sightings of all sorts. Ride along with Colt, Laney, Katelyn and Jenna as they experience adventures after adventure, learning and creating never-ending memories along the way, as we wind-up the Seasons at the Lake House Series." -back of cover

Rachelle Powell

Stories from the Cotton Fields: Juvenile fiction. "Meet Amanda, John, and Melanie. It's always an adventure with these three siblings. The fun and mischief they manage to find themselves in will have you wishing you could be a kid forever. Each story is followed by a simple worksheet that connects the lesson learned to scripture." -Back Cover

John T. Thorngren

Salvation on Death Row: Adult biography. Convicted of capital murder in 1980, Pamela sat on Texas’s Death Row awaiting lethal injection. But less than two days before her scheduled execution, she was given a second chance, and in 2000, she was resentenced: from death to life in prison with the possibility of parole.
