The Land of Heart's Delight
by Aletha Barrett May and Janis Susan May
Memoir

ISBN: 978-1-934041-13-0 (electronic)
978-1-934041-14-7 "(print)


When she went to South Texas as a County Home Demonstration Agent in
1940, Aletha Barrett was in culture shock. Raised in the gently
rolling green farmland of Northeast Texas, Aletha was unprepared for
the vast sandy expanses and different societies she found there. From
unearthing baby rattlesnakes to exploring the unknown spiciness of
Mexican food, every day was a learning experience.

Ever an adventurer, Aletha ventured deep into Mexico when it was
largely unknown to North Americans. Over the course of several trips
she witnessed what might have been a murder in Mexico City, endured
the then-perilous Pan-American Highway at the mercy of a drunken bus
driver and stayed in Acapulco when it was a tiny village with just
two hotels.

In later years, after marrying and having a family, Aletha always
said she was going to write a book about her life in South Texas, but
somehow the right time never came. After Aletha's death, her daughter
Janis Susan May, a writer and novelist, was going through her papers
and found an outline, some notes and a rudimentary chapter or two.
Janis Susan had been raised on her mother's stories and knew them by
heart, so working from the notes she completed the book. It was, she
says, the best testament she could envision to the memory of a
remarkable woman.

Chanukah Guilt
by Ilene Schnieder
Mystery

ISBN: 978-1-934041-31-4 (electronic)
978-1-934041-32-1 (print)


Rabbi Aviva Cohen is a 50-something, twice-divorced rabbi living a
rather uneventful life in South Jersey. True, she has a family that
is rather unconventional. And her first ex-husband is moving to her
town. But her life takes a truly interesting – and sinister – turn
when she agrees to officiate at the funeral of an unpopular land
developer. She doesn't expect to be told by two different people that
he had been murdered. Nor does she expect that the first funeral will
result in a suicide. Her search for the story behind the suicide (or
was it murder?) will lead her to discover the truism "appearances can
be deceiving" is accurate, while putting her life in jeopardy.
