“What Remains of Love” by Suzanne Trauth

“What Remains of Love” by Suzanne Trauth is an engaging story about a grieving daughter’s pursuit for closure and answers surrounding her father’s secret life. The story is told from the first-person perspective following Kate, but switches narrative frequently upon Kate’s discovery of Emilie’s memoir.

Resistance, desperation, and love reveal themselves in the yellowed pages of Emilie’s poignant memoir—it is the ultimate love story. … More “What Remains of Love” by Suzanne Trauth

“The Plot to Save America” by Avraham Azrieli

“The Plot to Save America,” is a fast-paced cautionary tale, a bit of a satire and a wildly imaginative alternative history. It is springtime, 2024 – the January 6, 2021insurrection succeeded – the rioters broke through, captured and killed Vice President Pence, set the Capitol on fire, where half of congress died, and the other half, (mostly Republican) were put in detention. By using Hollywood effects, and lots of repetitive perjury, the riot was blamed on BLM and Antifa, and martial law has been in place ever since. … More “The Plot to Save America” by Avraham Azrieli

“The Essence of Nathan Biddle” by J. William Lewis

The ladder is very high when it comes to novels that are good enough, deep enough, challenging and entertaining enough to be among the true classics. But this…this has definitely ascended that ladder (for me) and taken its place among the best. If this book doesn’t win every award possible for its genre, I will be shocked. 5 Stars, and if I could give 10, I would. Enjoy this; it’s a gift! … More “The Essence of Nathan Biddle” by J.
