    Lanny Budd infiltrates the Nazi high command in the riveting sixth chapter of Upton Sinclair’s Pulitzer Prize–winning series of historical novels Dashing and well-connected, Lanny Budd has earned the trust of the Nazi high command. To Adolf Hitler and his inner circle, the American art dealer is a “true believer” committed to their Fascist cause. But Lanny is actually a secret agent serving as President Franklin Roosevelt’s eyes and ears in Germany. When he learns of the Führer’s plans for conquest, Lanny’s dire warnings to Neville Chamberlain and other reluctant European leaders fall on deaf ears. The bitter seeds sown decades earlier with the Treaty of Versailles are now bearing fruit, and there will be no stopping the Nazi war machine as it rolls relentlessly on toward Paris.  Dragon Harvest captures the dramatic moment when world leaders realized that in trying to appease Hitler, they made a grave mistake. An astonishing mix of history, adventure, and romance, the Lanny Budd Novels are a testament to the breathtaking scope of Upton Sinclair’s vision and his singular talents as a storyteller.

    In this warm Christian historical fiction, Henrietta, a tough 95+-year old North Dakota cattle rancher, weakened from a bout of pneumonia, comes to live with her great-niece in rural Oregon, bringing the family treasure with her. From the time of Queen Elizabeth I, each generation of the Van Demere family has added a cookie cutter to the collection, marking milestones, passing down their oral history. Each cookie cutter’s vignette tells a story of American history, including WWII spies and the Revolutionary War, the Civil War and Underground Railroad, indentured servitude, pioneers crossing the plains and the gold rush, barnstormers and orphan trains, safari and the Titanic, testaments of faith and strong women through the generations. Henrietta feels a bounden duty to pass the stories to Jerria. Will she complete the family heritage before it’s too late? And can her home-nursing skills prevent a family crisis? If you love warm, clean, multi generational stories with a strong female character and loads of humor, you’ll love The Cookie Cutter Legacy by Deb Graham. 
    Be sure to look for Peril in Paradise and Murder on Deck, part of the Jerria Danson series.

    The first installment of Bernard Cornwell’s bestselling series chronicling the epic saga of the making of England, “like Game of Thrones, but real” (The Observer, London)—the basis for The Last Kingdom, the hit BBC America television series. 
    This is the exciting—yet little known—story of the making of England in the 9th and 10th centuries, the years in which King Alfred the Great, his son and grandson defeated the Danish Vikings who had invaded and occupied three of England’s four kingdoms. 
    The story is seen through the eyes of Uhtred, a dispossessed nobleman, who is captured as a child by the Danes and then raised by them so that, by the time the Northmen begin their assault on Wessex (Alfred’s kingdom and the last territory in English hands) Uhtred almost thinks of himself as a Dane. He certainly has no love for Alfred, whom he considers a pious weakling and no match for Viking savagery, yet when Alfred unexpectedly defeats the Danes and the Danes themselves turn on Uhtred, he is finally forced to choose sides. By now he is a young man, in love, trained to fight and ready to take his place in the dreaded shield wall. Above all, though, he wishes to recover his father’s land, the enchanting fort of Bebbanburg by the wild northern sea. 
    This thrilling adventure—based on existing records of Bernard Cornwell’s ancestors—depicts a time when law and order were ripped violently apart by a pagan assault on Christian England, an assault that came very close to destroying England.
