The Keeper House Unending from the Author: H. M. Snow. A brilliantly creative and intricate fantasy that will keep you spell-bound... Rescuing a kingdom could cost him everything-even his life. The ancient House of the Keepers has ruled the Second Kingdom in unbroken succession for seven centuries. Now it's rapidly falling into ruin. Its valiant king has been murdered in battle. Phelan, a treacherous seer, has pitted his will and powers against the kingdom's aging heroine, Lady Morena. The only remaining Keeper prince has been forced to flee the murderous rage of his usurping general while enemy armies march upon the Second Kingdom. Meanwhile, in the war-threatened Outland territory beyond the Great River, young Colin wrestles with other-worldly voices and nightmares that force him to question his sanity. A timely meeting with the exiled Keeper heir provides answers...but will the answers prove more challenging-and deadly-than the questions? And whom can young Colin trust with the gifts he's been given?

The Keepers Of The House from the Author: Shirley Ann Grau. A “beautifully written” Pulitzer Prize–winning novel about prejudice and a distinguished family’s secrets in the American South (The Atlantic Monthly). Seven generations of the Howland family have lived in the Alabama plantation home built by an ancestor who fought for Andrew Jackson in the War of 1812. Over the course of a century, the Howlands accumulated a fortune, fought for secession, and helped rebuild the South, establishing themselves as one of the most respected families in the state. But that history means little to Abigail Howland. The inheritor of the Howland manse, Abigail hides the long-buried secret of her grandfather’s thirty-year relationship with his African American mistress. Her fortunes reverse when her family’s mixed-race heritage comes to light and her community—locked in the prejudices of the 1960s—turns its back on her. Faced with such deep-seated racism, Abigail is pushed to defend her family at all costs. A “novel of real magnitude,” The Keepers of the House is an unforgettable story of family, tradition, and racial injustice set against the richly drawn backdrop of the American South (Kirkus Reviews). This ebook features an illustrated biography of Shirley Ann Grau, including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author’s personal collection.

Keeper Of The House from the Author: Rebecca T. Godwin. Keeper of the House is an unforgettable novel narrated by the lively Minyon Manigault, a young black woman from a coastal South Carolina Gullah community. In 1929, due to mysterious family circumstances, Minyon is given up by her grandmother to the employment of Ariadne Fleming, a white madam in the famously elegant brothel called Hazelhedge. At the age of fourteen, she becomes a pair of eyes and hands, watching and working almost invisibly in a world where men and women leave their inhibition, and their pasts, at the door. As Minyon grows up in the household with other black people who provide behind-the-scenes support of Hazelhedge, she cannot escape her haunting childhood memories. Even while bearing witness to the events unfolding around her, Minyon seeks to find her place in the world, and her pace within herself.

The Unending Hunger from the Author: Megan A. Carney. Based on ethnographic fieldwork from Santa Barbara, California, this book sheds light on the ways that food insecurity prevails in women’s experiences of migration from Mexico and Central America to the United States. As women grapple with the pervasive conditions of poverty that hinder efforts at getting enough to eat, they find few options for alleviating the various forms of suffering that accompany food insecurity. Examining how constraints on eating and feeding translate to the uneven distribution of life chances across borders and how “food security” comes to dominate national policy in the United States, this book argues for understanding women’s relations to these processes as inherently biopolitical.
