Length of Days


Authored by Louise Lenahan Wallace

Zane and Larissa Edwards, rearing their children Mac and Rose on the family farm, foresee the future spinning out as contentedly as their past. Civil War erupts, shattering their lives and dreams.
Zane joins the Sixth Ohio Volunteer Cavalry and is sent to Fort Laramie in Nebraska Territory. His friend Ethan Michaels, a widower with a young daughter, Charity, having promised Zane he will help Larissa with the work, moves to the farm as a hired hand.
Ten-year-old Mac begins studying medicine under the town's crusty doctor.
Will Zane survive the horrors of war? How will Ethan reconcile his growing love for Larissa, the wife of his best friend, both of whom trust him implicitly? Will Mac return Charity's childish love that becomes deeper and more mature with the passage of time? Will Mac's dreams of becoming a doctor turn to ashes when the war threatens to destroy all he holds dear?

Authored by E. J. Bancesco

A return to his native Romania offers a unique opportunity for Boston architect Luca Leontin to come to terms with his past; instead he becomes enmeshed in the vengeful designs of a man with whom he shares a life-long history of passion for art, as well as an indelible bitterness over the love of one woman. Luca finds himself drawn to the Circe, the infamous Bucharest nightclub, where the illusion of erotic fulfillment could cost him
his life.
From a totalitarian society that crumbled in December, 1989 to a contemporary world gripped by fear of international terrorism, Adrift is a study of cultural dislocation and the ensuing alienation that triggers both our yearning to return to our origins and the hopeless need to find what is lost forever. This is a story of obsession and revenge, and, above all, the survival of love despite the corrosive action of lifelong mistrust and suspicion.
