Saving Hope -- Liese Sherwood Fabre

Saving Hope

Steve Berry, NYT Bestselling author, describes Saving Hope as “a tantalizing premise that toys with the most basic of emotions—a parent’s drive to save their child.”

In one of Siberia's formerly closed cities, Alexandra Pavlova, an unemployed microbiologist, struggles to save her daughter’s life. When she turns to Vladimir, her oldest friend, for help, she's drawn into Russia’s underworld. His business dealings with the Iranians come to the attention of Sergei Borisov, an FSB (formerly the KGB) agent. Alexandra finds herself joining forces with Sergei to stop the export of a deadly virus in a race to save both her daughter and the world.

Life in Times-- Liese Sherwood Fabre

The Life and Times of Sherlock Holmes:
Essays on Victorian England
Volume One

Step back to 1895 England.

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s stories are full of references to everyday Victorian activities and events that send the twenty-first century reader running to the reference shelf. Few, for example, are intimately acquainted with the responsibilities of a country squire, the importance of gentlemen’s clubs, or the intricacies of the Victorian monetary system. These short essays explore various aspects of life mentioned in the original stories, providing modern-day insight into the nineteenth century world. Untangle the complexities of inheritance, the significance of “Dr.” in front of “Watson,” the importance of segregating the queen bee, and the dispute over the delivery of letters addressed to 221B Baker Street. Such examinations bring deeper meaning and color to the adventures of the world’s most famous consulting detective.

“[Dr.] Sherwood-Fabre’s…extensive research…brings to life a society which we have only dreamed of.”
–Steve Mason, The Crew of the Barque Lone Star, a Sherlock Holmes Scion Society

Corazones

Corazones

A collection of three award-winning literary short stories exploring the impact of love. “A Stranger in the Village,” nominated for the 2007 Pushcart Prize, describes how the arrival of a young woman into a Mexican mountain village changed sixteen-year-old Hector forever. “Sacrifice” offers an Aztec tale of political intrigue and love. In "Curandera" Doña Rosa assists the lovelorn through the heartache of passion and infidelity.

And a quote about one story:

“[‘A Stranger in the Village’] reminds us how our lives may be in the hands of people who come and go, moving on to destinations that call them powerfully away from us – and how, in their wake, we return to our lives but find a different order we are somehow compelled to live with. What a fine and engaging story”

A Botanical Blunder

Who taught the most famous consulting detective his craft?

By the time he and Dr. John Watson meet in their late twenties, Sherlock Holmes had already developed his skills of deduction. The source of his methods lies deep in his past, nurtured by one of the greatest minds of the mid-nineteenth century.

When his father calls him home during his first year at Eton, Sherlock Holmes is grateful—whatever the reason—for his return to Underbyrne, the family estate. Even his mother’s arrest for the murder of the village midwife can’t completely diminish his relief. Afterall, she is innocent, isn’t she?

Can the Holmes family successfully solve the crime when the village constable considers it solved and the victim’s husband won’t rest until a murderer is hung?

Will she ever feel at home with a mother she doesn’t remember and a world without magic?
