"A storm is coming, and it will not be long before it claims you also."

      Four years have passed since the fall of Skreon, the Murderer. Now with Gwyndel nearing the end of her Stewardship and the rebuilding of Castle Asdale, Eyoes comes closer to establishing the peace and prosperity of the home he loves. When an urgent letter beckons them to Rehillon, however, Eyoes and Gwyndel find themselves pulled into a treacherous fight with no clear sides. The identity of their enemy repeatedly eludes them, and lethal blows continue to wreak disaster. Allying with friends old and new, they embark on a new type of quest –where the enemy may be in their very midst.
​Can discernment prevail? Or will deception be their downfall?

Please join us on Saturday, June 23, 2018 from 11am to 3pm for Caladrius Dreams by Erin Ann McCarter.

Caladrius Dreams is the story of Calli, a young girl whose life is forever altered after a chance meeting with the King’s Guard, Master Arcturus Sheridan.

As Calli struggles to make sense of the world that has opened up around her, she must learn quickly the implications of her new role and place in society.

On top of it all is the dreams. What are they, and where do they come from? Mysterious and foreboding, Calli feels driven to discovering their source — lest she lose her clutch on reality altogether.

Taking subtle hints from literature such as Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings, C.S. Lewis’s Chronicles of Narnia, and the works of William Shakespeare, Caladrius Dreams is a story of poverty, power struggles between the classes, nobility, adventure, self-discovery, friendship, and magic.

Please join us for author signing of The End by M. Rose Flores on  Friday, June 15, 2018 from 11am - 3pm.

M. Rose Flores has enjoyed writing since she learned how to string letters together. She grew up in the vast green Pacific Northwest of the United States, which with its dense forests, four seasons, and proximity to the ocean made a perfect setting for The End. When she isn’t writing on her computer or in a notebook (though scraps of paper and the palm of her hand will do in a pinch), she works as a professional dog trainer and loves every part of it, even the copious amounts of drool. She believes everyone should be represented in literature and all other media. The End is her first novel.

A healthful diet rich in plant-based foods can prolong your life.  

But how much could you really extend your time?

The Adventist enclave in Loma Linda, California, is America’s only “Blue Zone”
one of five regions on Earth where people live measurably longer―about 10
years more―than average, as identified by National Geographic–funded re-search. This Blue Zone status is thanks largely to the foods Loma Linda resi-dents and Adventists choose eat―and the foods they choose not  to eat.
Loma Linda was established in 1905 by the Adventist founder and prophet
Ellen G. White. Her great-great-grandson, John Howard Weeks, still lives there.
He knows firsthand what it’s like to fall into the rut of unhealthy habits―and to  
relearn how to live and eat in a healthy way. Through the teachings of his family,
Weeks was able to conquer his temptations and embrace a healthy way of living.
He’ll show you how to do the same, no matter what your personal battle looks like.
In  The Healthiest People on Earth, Weeks shares the secrets of how anyone,
anywhere, can create a “Blue Zone” of their own and live a longer, healthier life.
A lively read full of exclusive family stories, gainful tips and tricks, happy home
remedies, and plant-based recipes, this book will be your first step on the jour-ney to a longer, healthier, more fulfilling life.
This is not a book about religion―it is about health and happiness. It is pos -sible to be healthy in body, mind, and spirit. Start by eating like the healthiest
people on Earth.

JOHN HOWARD WEEKS  is a career journalist and
longtime columnist for Southern California’s largest
newspaper group. He is author, co-author, or editor of
six previous books (Mojave Desert,  Inland Empire,  San
Bernardino Bicentennial,  Choice Words ,  Dream Weav-ers, and  Window Beyond the World). He has degrees in
English literature from the University of California
at Riverside and Birmingham University in England.
Except for one year in Europe, he has lived for more
than 50 years in or near Loma Linda, California, the
health-minded community established in 1905 by his great-great-grandmother,
Ellen G. White, founder and prophet of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.

Author Event: Fri & Sat, December 29 & 30 from 11am to 3pm

Please join us on Fri & Sat, December 29 & 30 from 11am to 3pm for World Food Unlimited by John L. (Jack) DeWitt. 

A long-time famer in the Walla Walla Valley, Jack DeWitt, has written a book about changes in farming practices during his 80-plus years, and practices needed to feed the world in the future.

Born and raised on a small farm near Moscow, Idaho, he came to the Walla Walla valley in 1960 to work as an agronomist for Lamb-Weston.  Five years later he was hired to manage land owned by the Minnick family. After 20 years managing the land, he led a partnership that leased the land, and that of some neighbors, for another 20 years.  Giving up the lease in 2006 and going into semi-retirement, he still grows over 650 acres of wheat on owned and leased land, 22 acres of wine grapes, and eight acres of Christmas trees.

His book, World Food Unlimited:  Growing Abundant, Safe Food, Sustainably, Using Modern Agricultural Technologies, focuses on the practice of no-till as the farming method that will conserve and sustain the world’s soils.  Combined with more efficient fertilizer use, safer and more effective pest control, and crops with improved yields and nutritive qualities, the world’s farmers will safely feed the world throughout the 21st century and beyond.
