When a magic crystal is released by the retreating Susitna Glacier in Alaska, and the Dark Orb is unearthed by the flooding of New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, an ancient battle, brought to earth twelve thousand years ago, is rekindled. Rahlys, disillusioned with urban life, the commercial use of her artistic talent, and an unfaithful boyfriend, returns to Alaska and purchases Trapper Bean’s log cabin in the pristine wilderness of the Northern Susitna Valley, seeking peace and solitude to paint. Peace and solitude are challenged when a raven, formerly tamed by Trapper Bean, brings Rahlys a strange crystal that glows softly from within with multi-colored light. When Rahlys takes possession of the crystal, she takes possession of Sorceress Anthya's powers, and a classic struggle between good and evil unfolds. Filled with the natural beauty and magic that is Alaska, Crystalline Aura compels us to believe in the unbelievable, and in the magic within ourselves.

Broken by their unorthodox Midwestern childhood, sisters Catherine, Anne, and Jessica Mathers search for love, acceptance, and worth—often in the most unlikely places. Catherine, the oldest of the Mathers sisters, is an English professor battling breast cancer with Cytoxan, red wine, and profanity. Anne is a wife and stay-at-home mother of two struggling to make ends meet in a suburban existence that both suffocates and confounds her. Jessica, the youngest by ten years and estranged—by choice—from her family, is an exotic dancer who feels safer on stage than in a relationship. But when the sisters are faced with an incomprehensible loss, they are forced to reevaluate themselves, their damaged bonds, and their fragile future. Parting Gifts illuminates one highly dysfunctional family’s tentative, desperate crawl toward a life of meaning and worth.

*Shortlisted for a 2017 RoNA Award* With her whole life ahead of her, beautiful young Grace’s world changes forever when she’s married off to a much older judge. Soon, feeling lonely and neglected, Grace meets and falls in love with an Indian doctor, Vikram—he’s charming, thoughtful, and kind, everything her husband is not. But this is 1950s Ireland, and when she falls pregnant, the potential scandal must be dealt with. As soon as she has given birth, Grace is sent to an asylum by the judge, while Vikram, told that Grace died in childbirth, returns to India heartbroken. Thirty years later, after the judge’s death, his estranged daughter Emma returns home to pack up his estate, where she finds Grace’s diaries and begins to piece together the life of the mother she never knew. Meanwhile, Vikram is planning a long-awaited return to Ireland with his much-loved niece Rosa—who has grown up hearing all about her uncle’s long-lost love—to stand, at last, at the grave of the woman he adores. When the judge’s will is finally read, revealing he has sent letters to Vikram and Emma, the deception spanning both decades and continents finally begins to unravel, exposing long-buried family secrets along the way and raising the question of if true love can last a lifetime.

One whirlwind week of love, blackmail, and betrayal following three brothers through teeming prewar New York in this "entertaining . . . outsized . . . big, expressive debut" (Wall Street Journal) "A masterfully crafted novel . . . Comic, violent, and moving in equal measure." --John Irving "As rich and raucous as the city it celebrates." --O., The Oprah Magazine "Admirably fearless . . . Mathews has talent in buckets." --New York Times Book Review June 1939. Francis Dempsey and his shell-shocked brother, Michael, are on an ocean liner from Ireland bound for their brother Martin's home in New York City, having stolen a small fortune from the IRA. During the week that follows, the lives of these three brothers collide spectacularly with big-band jazz musicians, a talented but fragile heiress, a Jewish street photographer facing a return to Nazi-occupied Prague, a vengeful mob boss, and the ghosts of their own family's revolutionary past. When Tom Cronin, an erstwhile assassin forced into one last job, tracks the brothers down, their lives begin to fracture. Francis must surrender to blackmail or have his family suffer fatal consequences. Michael, lost and wandering alone, turns to Lilly Bloch, a heartsick artist, to recover his decimated memory. And Martin and his wife, Rosemary, try to salvage their marriage and, ultimately, the lives of the other Dempseys. Meanwhile, with the Depression receding, all of New York is suffused with an electric feeling of hope, caught up in the fervor of the World's Fair and eager for good times after a decade of deprivation. From the smoky jazz joints of Harlem to the opulent Plaza Hotel, from the garrets of vagabonds and artists in the Bowery to the backroom warrens and shadowy warehouses of mobsters in Hell's Kitchen, Brendan Mathews brings the prewar metropolis to vivid, pulsing life. The sweeping, intricate, and ambitious storytelling throughout this remarkable debut reveals an America that blithely hoped it could avoid another catastrophic war and focus instead on the promise of the World's Fair: a peaceful, prosperous "World of Tomorrow."

A credible fictionalized account of early Floridian history, this novel (based, the author explains, on actual historical records of his family members) takes us through Florida's early years as an American territory from the point of view of the white pioneers who poured in from nearby states after Andrew Jackson's unauthorized invasion of the then Spanish colony (the First Seminole War) and Spain's subsequent decision to sell that territory to the United States. For years the Spanish and, briefly, the British (who held Florida for a time and later returned it to Spain) had encouraged Indians from the United States to enter and settle the region as a way of building up a defense against American encroachment and (in the case of the British) of using the Indians against the new republic. Along with the Indians, the colonial authorities in Florida had welcomed and armed escaped black slaves, many of whom found sanctuary as soldiers with the Spanish or as allies of the Indians. (The original Seminole settlements, prior to Jackson's attacks, had been large communal villages with lots of farm land and livestock. Only later were the Seminole and their black allies driven to a nomadic and often subsistence existence. Blacks, many of whom the Indians counted as "slaves" but generally treated as allies, were established in separate farming communities with their own lands and livestock -- until the whites ultimately made such settlements impossible for blacks and Indians both.).
