Birthright The True Story That Inspired Kidnapped from the Author: A. Roger Ekirch. "Ekirch out-kidnaps Stevenson in this thrilling, thoroughly documented story." —Booklist, starred review No saga of personal hardship so captivated the British public in the eighteenth century as that of James Annesley, the presumptive heir of five aristocratic titles and scion of the mighty house of Annesley. Kidnapped at twelve years of age by his uncle and sold into indentured servitude in America, James would ultimately escape after toiling for twelve years in Delaware, returning to Ireland to bring his blood rival, the Earl of Anglesea, to justice in one of the epic trials of the century. Set against the volatile backdrop of Georgian Ireland, historian A. Roger Ekirch recounts the extraordinary family drama that inspired Robert Louis Stevenson's classic novel Kidnapped "with dash and clarity" (Kirkus Reviews).

Birthright from the Author: Jessica Ruddick. How do you live with yourself when you decide who dies? Ava Parks would have killed for an iPod for her sixteenth birthday. Anything would have been better than coming into her birthright of being a seeker for the Grim Reaper, an arrangement made by her fallen angel ancestor in exchange for his re-admittance to heaven. And she isn’t just any seeker—she finds souls that have the potential for becoming angels and sentences them to death. A year and two souls into her role as a seeker with her conscience overflowing with guilt, Ava comes up with a plan to thwart the system. When it goes awry, she is forced to submit the name of a classmate, Cole Fowler, an ornery, rough around the edges guy who always seems to come to her rescue, whether she likes it or not. Her feelings for Cole prompt her to intervene, and she saves him from death, upsetting the Grim Reaper’s agenda. While Ava schemes to find a way to save Cole, she learns he has some secrets of his own. She lets him believe he is protecting her, and not the other way around, until a final showdown with the Grim Reaper forces Ava to make choices Cole may never forgive.

Birthright from the Author: Clay Blount. Brother is pitted against brother in this Civil War novel, but not in the usual one-fights-for-the-North, one-for-the-South way. As the nation moves inexorably toward war, two brothers in Mississippi become embroiled in a bitter feud over the inheritance left by their father, a wealthy Vicksburg planter. Winston, the older son, is given most of the estate, including Magnolia, the family plantation. Jeremy, the excluded brother, a rake, then hires a larger-than-life killer named Pritchard to help him scheme the money back. But war breaks out and their plan falls apart, forcing Jeremy and Pritchard to flee to the North; they will, of course, be back. Meanwhile, Vicksburg becomes an early target of Union forces who want control of the Mississippi River. The town's high position on a bluff makes it easy to defend, and Union General U.S. Grant lays a siege. As the fighting moves closer and closer to home, Winston's son Andrew joins the Confederate forces. Rich details about the war and especially the siege help keep the story moving along. Once the fighting ends, the characters must struggle back to Vicksburg - across a fractured, war-torn landscape peopled with thieves, ex-slaves, and mercenaries - to resolve the blood feud over the disputed birthright. Telling a story of the Civil War through the intrigues of criminals and conmen, landed gentry, and the uneducated soldier, Birthright mines the rarely seen underbelly of nineteenth-century American life in a tale of greed, familial violence, and revenge. And there's also a love story.
