Shunned: Outcasts in the Land By Cynthia Hearne Darling Review


Amos, a small town minister in New England, is horrified. His wife Carrie has been jailed for vandalism against Jett Pharmaceuticals, her retaliation for their son John's death by a drug overdose. Amos's own reaction to his son's death is to speak prophetically on Hell and punishment through preaching and conducting public meetings. Public reaction is fierce and unforgiving against the couple Released from jail, Carrie forms a group, including skeptic Allan, CEO of Jett, to expose harms caused by antidepressants. 

She also confronts Dr. Monroe, John's university counselor, who engineered the boy's death. He is infuriated and threatened by Carrie. Monroe schemes to punish Carrie by killing Amos, arranging for him to come to his office to retrieve John's falsified records, that state that their son's death was caused by the parents' fundamentalist lifestyle. 

Carrie, devastated at her husband's death, puts roses in her dead husband's hands at the funeral, as he had done for her outside the jail upon her release. Monroe sends his grossly obese wife Nellie on a cruise, but she confronts him about Amos's death upon her return. He decides to kill her also, planning the murder with delight and great precision. Meanwhile, Carrie learns that Nellie may have information to sell regarding Amos's murder. 

Allan, now a suspect in Amos's death, decides to approach Nellie himself. He drives to the house, followed by the police. He hears screams within the house. Nellie has Monroe in a death grip. The police arrive. Allan is exonerated. Monroe becomes psychotic, now locked in a mental institution. Carrie and Allan remain friends. Old Mrs. Robbins, the town's eccentric, hands Carrie a rose. The cycle is complete, she says. Carrie understands. She tells Allan he has to reread Hawthorne to understand.

Cassandra's Review-   I did not expect to be as excited and surprised by this book.  It is a real treat and I was taken that such a topic could make for this awesome read. The author has a nice style and kept me very interested. 

Cynthia Hearne Darling
Cynthia has worked everywhere from Indian reservations, mental institutions, even the U.S. Department of Justice. She prefers the reservations. The last books she has read were the short stories of William Faulkner (she understood them!)and a history about the wild frontier times in Western Kentucky. She got her dna done, which gave her a way of looking broadly at the world. 

She went to the College of William and Mary in Virginia and picked up two masters' degrees afterwards, one in public administration and one in social work. She is working on a novel about Georgetown, D.C., in the 1960's at the moment. She wishes she had home-schooled her children, but it was hard to work and teach at the same time.

Her mother used to quote Shakespeare to her, especially after a couple of bourbons, so she thinks she got the literary gene from the maternal side. Her father was a mining engineer. The family moved around, and Cynthia went to four high schools. Her novel Shunned has some personal experiences behind it: she knows how it felt to be outside the group when your shoes were not quite right or when everyone else in class knew each other.

Her book of poetry, Forty-Nine Poems, was written while she had a job that required absolutely nothing for three months. She went to the office every day and was faced with a typewriter(very old school), a dictionary and a phone. Looking back, she thinks God arranged nicely for her to write. She thanks Him.

Stories From The Middle Seat By R.F. Hemphill Review


How do you build a multi-billion dollar international business?

And then how do you save one when it seems like all the cards are stacked against you?

Sharing letters he sent to his father during his years of traveling the world building—and then saving—a multi-billion dollar company, Bob Hemphill’s Stories from the Middle Seat recounts the funny, unique, and sometimes out­landish parts of international business.

From a time of significant prosperity to a period of domestic and international finan­cial hardship, we have Bob’s insider views on what it takes to be successful, or at least to survive. We go from goose blinds in Virginia to Incan ruins in Peru, from the islands of the Caribbean to those of Greece, from Riyadh in Saudi Arabia to an Israeli kibbutz. Hemphill details the interactions with professional colleagues and with family, deals with the ups and downs of business, and responds with his inimitable wit and wisdom to it all.

Whether you’re an armchair traveler, a successful or beleaguered business per­son, or a reader simply looking to enjoy and learn about international business, you will relate to Hemphill’s humorous, candid and unfettered take on life, relationships – business and personal – and cultural eccentricities, realizing that it just may be these eccentricities and relationships that define our com­mon humanity.

Amazon 


Cassandra's Review- This author brings to light great facts and shares so much information. I found this to be a very interesting and easy to understand book.  While the topic may seem out of most people's reach, this is a great book to look into. 


R.F. Hemphill, for much of his career, was employed at AES, a highly regarded global electric power generating and distribution company, where he served as Executive Vice President and Chief of Staff to the CEO. Hemphill was one of the three executives who began the company in 1981, growing it from a million dollar six person start up. AES owns and operates 38,000 MW of power plants in 21 countries around the globe, is publicly listed on the NYSE, and had approximately $18 billion of revenues in 2013.

Recently, Hemphill was the founder and CEO of AES Solar Power Ltd from its inception until his retirement in December 2013. The company, formed in March 2008, is a joint venture of the AES Corporation and Riverstone LLC, an energy focused private equity fund. AES Solar is a leading developer, owner and operator of utility-scale photovoltaic solar plants connected to the electric power grid. These installations, ranging in size from less than 2 MW to more than 250 MW, consist of large arrays of land-based solar photovoltaic panels that directly convert sunlight to electricity. Under his leadership, the company designed, permitted and constructed fifty-one solar plants (526 MW) in seven countries: Spain, France, Italy, Bulgaria, Greece, India and the US.

He has also been a senior policy official at the Department of Energy and Deputy Manager of Power at the Tennessee Valley Authority.

R.F. Hemphill graduated Magna Cum Laude from Yale University and earned an MA from UCLA and an MBA from George Washington University. He served as an airborne infantry officer in the US Army in Vietnam, and in the Special Forces.

His interests include geraniums, unsuccessful participation in Final Four pools, sporadic exercise, competitive duck cooking and tribal art.

ALL-ELECTRIC AMERICA By S. David Freeman Review

27315542
In ALL-ELECTRIC AMERICA authors S. David Freeman, former utility CEO, and Leah Y Parks, a journalist in the electricity industry, explain how making the transition to an all-electric, all renewable society by the year 2050 is necessary, practical, and achievable. An energy infrastructure powered by the sun and wind & running on electricity, for all our energy needs, will be reliable, cleaner, safer, and CHEAPER. It will be superior to the system we have today and will lead to a better future.

The United Nations, the Environmental Protection Agency, the International Energy Agency, and 141 countries (including the U.S.) agree that a 2 degree Celsius temperature rise is our ceiling, above which we are on a fast path that will severely impact our food supply, water resources, infrastructure, ecosystems to dangerous climate disruption and our health.

The only way to stay within this 2°C goal is to reach zero greenhouse gas emissions by the year 2050.

The book presents a clear strategy of steadily reducing the use of fossil fuels—by 3% a year—while building alternative greenhouse-gas-free electricity generating capacity at a pace to meet our future 2050 energy needs

The specter of global warming requires that the transformation must begin immediately. Freeman and Parks show how, with the current “All of the Above” policy, we are, instead, on a path to climate hell. They present a course of action that gives us the best hope of eliminating disastrous climate change and reaching our agreed upon US and world climate goals of keeping the earth’s temperature from rising by 2oC while at the same time creating a better energy future.

We will need to replace all fossil fuels including coal, oil and natural gas used for electricity, heating, transportation, and industrial processes by midcentury to have the best hope of achieving our 2oC climate goal. The resources currently allocated towards oil and other fossil fuels can instead be invested in the development of an all-renewable 21st century electricity infrastructure.

Freeman and Parks explain that when we have the will to embrace this future, we will see a utility which is distributed in nature and service based, focusing on the needs of the customer. Solar and wind farms will be able to provide most of our energy needs and will take up less than 2% of our land and electricity storage will be placed throughout our grid. An electric or hydrogen fueled car will be in every home, solar panels will be on the roofs of homes and community centers, and home storage systems and microgrids will add stability and security.

The book further demonstrates how the electric utility, currently hindered by inertia and resistance to change, has an opportunity to once again harness the growth of its industry. Instead of acting as an opponent to change and being blinded by the fear and possibility of becoming obsolete, the electric utility can embrace the future, its history of entrepreneurship and progress, and take a primary role in delivering a better future for humanity.

A better future is possible by 2050, but only if we begin at once and have the will to act.


Cassandra's Review-   An interesting read, that is both eye opening and informational.

The Cobbogoth Series by Hannah L. Clark Tour and Giveaway $120 gift card (Amazon, B&N or iTunes)




Goodreads
Amazon

Norah Lukens needs to uncover the truth about the fabled lost city of Cobbogoth. After her archaeologist uncle’s murder, Norah is asked to translate his old research journal for evidence and discovers that his murder was a cover-up for something far more sinister.
When she turns to neighbor and only friend James Riley for help, she realizes that not only is their bitter-sweet past haunting her every step, but James is keeping dangerous secrets. Can Norah discover what they are before its too late to share her own.

Goodreads
Amazon

After being raised from infancy in Boston, Mass., Noria (a.k.a Norah Lukens) has no idea what to expect upon entering New Cobbogoth, where she never would have guessed that paths of light can make you vanish; doors can lead to realms both near and far; myths and legends are actual history; a mere kiss can seal two souls as one; and, of course, a stone is never “just a stone.” Her Uncle Jack’s stories never could have prepared her for the magical and dangerous place her native realm is turning out to be.
When the Gihara’s promises begin to crumble, her best friend and soul-mate Jamus (a.k.a. James Riley) is in more danger than ever. Then when his father Lylend abandons her to search for an ancient relic called The Lemorian Crest and she is taken captive by the very people she’s risked everything to save, Noria begins to lose faith in the Cobbogothian gods and the mission they sent her home to accomplish.
Only when a series of new friendships and loyalties are forged in the most peculiar of places, does Noria dare hope again. Hope for Jamus’ safety, for their future together, and for the survival of the entire Cobbogothian race.

About Hannah L. Clark:
Facebook | Twitter | Website| Instagram | YouTube

Hannah L. Clark lives with her husband and two children in the Rocky Mountains. She has always known she would be a storyteller. In 2006 she graduated from Utah Valley University with a bachelor’s degree in English and immediately began writing her first novel.

Uncovering Cobbogoth was Clark’s first book in the seven book Cobbogoth series—a YA fantasy series based on her mythological brain-child, The Legend of the Cobbogothians. It was released in May 2014 through Cedar Fort Publishing. Book 2 in the series, The Lemorian Crest will be released in Summer 2015.

Clark loves running, mythology, singing while playing the guitar, herbal tea, escaping into imaginary worlds, and being with her peeps. Like her heroine Norah, she also kind of believes that trees might have souls, but must clarify that she has never hugged a tree. The closest she has ever come to that kind of bizarre behavior was the time she hugged the pillars outside Harry Potter Land. Which, all things considered, is not bizarre at all if one takes into account how exquisitely happy she was to finally be there.

A-Whispered-Darkness-Cover
When Claire Mallory’s father leaves, her mom moves them to a new town and into a dilapidated Victorian house.
The old house creaks and whistles, and smells well — like it’s been abandoned for years. But as the nights grow longer and the shadows take on substance, Claire wonders if the strange sounds and occurrences might be more than the house showing its age.
Just as things start to pick up in Claire’s love life, her mother becomes possessed. In an attempt to save her mother and their new home, Claire enlists the help of two boys, each of whom is interested in Claire for different reasons. As she chooses one boy over the other, something dangerous is unleashed, and the spirits make their move.
They aren’t content to moan and scream inside Claire’s house, or even control her mom. They want a taste of freedom, and she’s their key to getting it. But is Claire strong enough to fight off the evil spirits, or will they claim her and her mom before it’s all over?

Fire-in-the-Woods-Cover
When a plane crashes in the woods near Jess’s home, the boy of her dreams falls out of the sky—literally. But David’s not here to find a girlfriend. He’s from another planet, and if Jess can’t help him get back to his ship, he’ll be stuck on Earth with nothing to look forward to but the pointy end of a dissection scalpel.
But her father runs their house like an army barracks, and with an alien on the loose, Major Dad isn’t too keen on the idea of Jess going anywhere. Ever. So how the heck is she supposed to help the sweetest, strangest, and cutest guy she’s ever met?
Hiding him in her room probably isn’t the best idea. Especially since her Dad is in charge of the squadron searching for David. That doesn’t mean she won’t do it. It just means she can’t get caught.
Helping David get home while protecting her heart—that’s gonna be the hard part. After all, she can’t really fall for a guy who’s not exactly from here.
As they race through the woods with Major Dad and most of the U.S. military one breath behind them, Jess and David grow closer than either of them anticipated. But all is not what it seems. David has a genocide-sized secret, and one betrayal later, they are both in handcuffs as alien warships are positioning themselves around the globe. Time is ticking down to Armageddon, and Jess must think fast if she’s to save the boy she cares about without sacrificing Earth—and everyone on it.
