Beyond the Wood (Book 1) by Michael J Roueche
Prize Format: Print or eBook (Winner’s Choice)
Romance has faded, and shame has weakened resolve. Mystery has shrouded the truth, and pride has matured into a world enveloped by rage and war. . . . And the only constant is betrayal—and at times he is your sole companion. Yet, hope still lingers . . .
Hank, a soldier for the Union, refuses retreat from his first bloodied action without proof he has been there, and he takes it from a dying enemy. Fed by the compassion he finds in the Confederate’s last letter and his own unsettled dreams and troubling memories, Hank imagines a romance that drives him relentlessly toward an impossible rendezvous. All the while, Elizabeth, the widow, struggles with burdens left by her husband, even as her neighbors conspire against her. And what is she to make of this Union soldier, this enemy, so set on coming to her?
Michael J. Roueche grew up in Virginia and has an indelible affection for the Old Dominion. Ever a romantic, only in recent years did he discover the Civil War that had always surrounded him, thanks to Bruce Catton books and a good friend who gave him a copy of Michael Schaara’s Killer Angels. He is inspired by the examples of those who maintain their integrity as they persevere and overcome obstacles.
With a deepening background in Civil War history and prompted by an unexpected and unusual experience at Manassas National Battlefield Park, the “Beyond the Wood” series was born.
He and his wife of 36 years now live in Colorado, where they enjoy hiking and exploring the High Plains and Rocky Mountains, with their alpine vistas, aspen groves and evergreen forests, and amazing wildlife. They have five children and several grandchildren. Learn more about Michael at www.michaeljroueche.com.
Cindy is just a normal 11¾-year-old. At least until she wakes up one night and finds out she’s dead. Well, she isn’t technically dead-she just doesn’t have any hair, eyes, or . . . skin. Yep, she is a skeleton—all bones and no body.
Human by day and skeleton by night, Cindy is definitely cursed—and she has no one to turn to except a father who’s now scared of her. To make matters worse, the Spring Fling dance is approaching, and Ethan, the cutest boy in sixth grade, doesn’t seem to know Cindy exists. Of course, Cindy doesn’t think letting Ethan find out she’s part skeleton is the best way to introduce herself. and that there’s no way she can attend the school dance “dressed” like a skeleton.
Amie & Bethanie Borst are a mother and daughter writing team. Cinderskella is their debut novel, the first in the Scarily Ever After series published by Jolly Fish Press. They love writing beautifully sweet Young Adult and Middle Grade fiction with a dark twist.
Amie (the mom) loves pink, unicorns, and glitter. Twelve year old Bethanie plays the piano and could beat Katniss Everdeen in an archery competition!
She’s young, she’s sharp, she’s the hardest working attorney in the whole LA office. Still, when Alexis O’Brien finally gets brutally honest with herself, she has to admit she’s nothing more than a glorified workhorse for her boss and his slippery partners. Her dissatisfaction only deepens when she gets sent on a wild goose chase to rural Wyoming to find some elusive gifted architect for a project she thinks is corrupt.
Then she meets Sean Rockland. The antithesis of the effeminate manicured types she’s used to at work, with his muscles fairly rippling under his button down, Sean ticks her off from the very first moment she lays eyes on him as he’s recuing her from car trouble—which only makes him laugh. Of course that doesn’t help.
When her spitfire meets his steel sparks begin to fly!
