Charlotte Jerace's Kentucky Rain is a warmhearted and witty novel about a genteel Southern woman, who is scheduled to embark on a road trip from Prince Edward Island, Canada, all the way to Louisville, Kentucky, where she will present an old and irreplaceable journal to the city's historical society then fulfill a lifelong dream to attend the Kentucky Derby. But her worsening Alzheimer's disease and the rising family conflict put in jeopardy everything at stake. Jerace's cleverly plotted tale introduces us to a multi-generational, modern-day family, who battle their addictions to alcohol and drugs, alternative lifestyles, sibling rivalry and lack of good communication skills with humorous and sometimes heartbreaking candor. The cast of characters and their irrepressible pets make Kentucky Rain a journey worth taking.

Filled with delightful oddball characters and heroic escapades, The Adventures of Daring Dog is a magical and inspiring tale for children of all ages. Ten-year-old Sam Harris experiences life from a wheelchair, which wouldn’t be so bad if it weren’t for the Crabs gang always bullying him. After all, his dad is a brilliant inventor. Plus, his family has Archie, a life-size robot “housekeeper.” How many kids can say that? But the best thing that ever happened to Sam started out with a very sad discovery: upon exiting the hospital, Sam and his dad find Daring, a bloodhound, lying lifeless in the parking lot. They rush the dog to eccentric vet Hannah Sunshine Trout and hope for a miracle. Someone with a bit of fairy dust seems to be paying attention, because when Daring wakes up from surgery, she’s not only alive—she can fly! But the crazy adventure has only just begun for Sam and his dog friend. They have lessons to learn, secrets to uncover, and people to save. The Adventures of Daring Dog will keep readers laughing, while also reminding of love’s power to heal. “… A heart-warming story that demonstrates how the love of a pet can alleviate the problems of the world.” Jim Grubb, DVM “Heart-warming, magical—Highly Recommended!” –www.Momslifesavers.com “It's the kind of story a teacher would read in class—I loved it!” –Thomas Kerwin, Age 10
