The Women Who Founded Christianity A Trilogy Volume 1 Hannah and Miriam by David Linwood An historical novel of a Judaean family during the reign of Augustus Caesar. Chapters 1 5 Hannah is a skilled physician and surgeon who maintains a clinic at her home. Her daughter, Miriam, is apprenticed to Hannah, learning the medical arts, and apothecary skills. Hannahs husband, Joachim, is a timber merchant. Because of the incursion of self-serving warlords and bandits in the countryside, Joachim must constantly defend his ox trains while hauling the timbers to market. Joachim and the Roman Tribune Cornelius join forces to ambush the principal, notorious bandit Judas ben Hezekiah. After the ambush, Miriam performs difficult surgeries in the field, and saves the life of a severely wounded friend. Chapters 6 11 Miriam reveals to Hannah, that she has been visited by the Angel Gabriel. The angel has announced that Miriam will give birth to a son, Joshua, and that he will be an exceptional child, dedicated to a great purpose. When Joachim is informed by Hannah of the Annunciation of Gabriel, he immediately warns Hannah that Miriam is in great danger. Unscrupulous competitors of Joachim in Sepphoris will bring the ultra-orthodox authorities down on Miriams head if she reveals that she is with child, and not lawfully betrothed or married. The authorities will laugh her to scorn if she reveals her visitation by Gabriel. They will have her flogged for adultery, and sent to a madhouse or even stoned. To protect his daughter, Joachim suggests that a long-time business associate of his, Yosef of Nazareth, a carpenter and house builder, might be interested in a betrothal. Miriam is apprised of her fathers plan, and agrees to withhold judgment until she has had a chance to meet Yosef and see what kind of person he is. Joachim, Hannah and Miriam travel to Nazareth under the pretext of visiting Yosefs medicinal herb garden. The garden belonged to Yosefs wife, Deborah, who died in childbirth. Yosef welcomes them to his home. He reveals that he has been visited in a special dream, by the Angel Gabriel, who told him that Joachim and Hannah and Miriam would be coming to visit, and they would ask him to consider a betrothal with Miriam. Miriam has been watching Yosef closely since they arrived at his house. She is greatly drawn to him, both physically as a mature, handsome man, and also as a very spiritual person. She announces that she agrees to be betrothed and married to Yosef, if he is willing. Yosef is likewise greatly attracted to the young, beautiful girl, Miriam, and admits he has been so very lonely since his Deborah died three years previously. He agrees to a betrothal which is a lawful trial marriage that includes the possibility of children and that will protect Miriam from the ultra-orthodox authorities. Yosef, with Miriam and her parents, visits Rabbi Shmuel ben Zeroah in Nazareth, to be betrothed. Chapters 12 16 Yosef with Miriam, and Joachim with Hannah, and their other children, Chavah and Yeshai, travel to Jerusalem for the Passover Holiday. Miriam and Joseph are wedded in Jerusalem. Chapters 16 23 King Herod has begun to seize every prominent man in the cities all through Judaea. He has not harmed them but has imprisoned them. None of the men has opposed Herod in any way. The economy of Judaea becomes greatly depressed and the flow of taxes to Rome is reduced to a mere trickle of gold. Herod does not care he is dying. He knows th

Centered around multi-million dollar stakes and a series of nationally televised poker tournaments, Fading Hearts on the River offers a story of odds—the odds of a newborn surviving severe jaundice, the odds of Congress passing a law that renders one’s online gambling income inaccessible, the odds of drawing the right card on the turn or the river. In this tale of fatherhood and worldy success, Haxton follows his son Isaac’s unlikely career as a poker player, the nervous father often sitting on the sidelines with his fingers crossed or staring at a casino monitor while Isaac wins more in one hand of play than Haxton has earned from all his books of poetry combined. In this deftly crafted story Haxton explores the propensity for abstraction, logic, and memory all good poets and poker players share, all the while taking readers on a rollicking tour of complex, intertwined topics, ranging from game theory and financial strategies, to medical mysteries and lost love, to chess, Magic cards, and Texas Hold ‘em. Guided by the through-line of a father’s love and admiration for his talented son, Fading Hearts delivers a unique perspective on professional gambling and one family’s experience playing the odds.

River Stone genre is magic realism. His archetype is a reluctant hero. His main objective is to become immortalised by successfully creating a new genre of art. Impeding him is a supernatural gift he’s been given, which he defies; to take away lives by a force of arcane energy when he lays his hands on recipients. He doesn’t want to be known as the angel of death. When seeing the Eagle Man, River is given another spiritual gift; eternal life. It is about psychology verses the metaphysical world and fundamentalism verses atheism. He is an environmental activist with the L.L.E, an international, secret society foundation. This organisation assigns him to join the Army Services as a reprographic soldier, to be an undercover agent to gather secret satellite information for their cause. At first, he opposes the assignment, however, his love for the philosophy Hintism and its mentor Lord Va who fatalistically manipulates River’s existence until he owns nothing. This is a similar scenario to Dulouz (how River sees himself), testing the boundaries of nonconformity within society’s dictating constraints, and freedom from materialistic constructs. Through the mere exhaustion caused by his disconnection to the framework of social structure, and failing his desire to find the antidote for his inspirational death inflicted by drudgery, the eternal collective mundane conscious and subconscious of human existence. And, dealing with a curse, jinx, hex and damnation; suffering schizophrenia (un-institutionalised) when experiencing paranormal episodes and extreme poverty...He is finally coerced ethically, socially and financially in joining the Army. The Army doesn’t hinder his artistic drive, or, inspiration. The denouement is devastating in respect to his obsession with art, though his true destiny is revealed. The themes are ideological spiritual beliefs. Secret societies. vigilantism. Art, philosophies and the paranormal.

Giles Armitage needed to get away from it all and a sailing holiday with friends was just the escape he needed. Everything was going well until they became stranded in thick fog. Luckily they were invited to stay at a small chateau nearby, until the weather cleared. But the atmosphere in the chateau was tense. Giles was brought face to face with the woman he once loved, and whom he was trying to forget—the hauntingly beautiful Miriam. Miriam’s husband was clearly uneasy and she was terrified—convinced, as she confided in Giles, that someone was trying to kill her. Following a series of disturbing accidents, Giles began to think she could possibly be right.

In the time of Vespasian, just after Rome has crushed the Jewish Revolt, Julius Varro, a Roman Questor (an investigating magistrate )is commissioned to investigate the story that a Jew rose from the dead after being crucified in Jerusalem. Because the fast-growing Nazarene sect founded by the martyr's followers is becoming a threat to the stability of the region, there is much riding on debunking the story. Questor Varro has to deal with the evidence that goes back forty years, with most witnesses long dead and the living ones lying to protect themselves. But he is intent on producing a report that will demolish the claims of these religious fanatics. His investigation stirs intrigue, religious passion, and violence, to say nothing of an attraction to a beautiful Jewish slave girl. Questor Varro's report methodically destroys the myth fueling the newborn Christian movement. But then an extraordinary event occurs that changes everything.
