The Immigrants Who Built America: My Father’s Footsteps through Ellis Island. As told by his wife Linda Santiso. What would happen if you ventured to a new country halfway around the world where you could not speak the language? This was the situation faced by your ancestors as they began the quest for a new and better life. It was to be a life full of hardships and injustice. Child labor was legal, and safety laws were nonexistent. In addition to the high rate of job injuries, jobs were without fringe benefits.

This enthralling story will take you on a journey you will never forget! This is a story for all of us, because it is the story of our ancestors.

Unwept — the beginning of a spellbinding new trilogy by Tracy Hickman and Laura Hickman bestselling co-creators of Dragonlance and Ravenloft
Gamin, Maine, is a remote seaside town where everyone seems to know Ellis Harkington better than she knows herself—but she doesn’t remember any of them.
Unknown events have robbed Ellis of her memory. Concerned individuals, who claim to be friends and loved ones, that her memories may return in time.
Ellis finds herself adrift in a town of ominous mysteries, cryptic hints, and disturbingly familiar strangers. And what of the phantom suitor who visits her in her dreams? Is he a memory, a figment of her imagination, or a living nightmare beyond rational explanation?
Only her lost past holds the answers she seeks—if she can uncover its secrets before she falls prey to an unearthly killer. URL: http://us.macmillan.com/unwept/TracyHickman Fantasy

Aspiring journalist Dan expected so much more after graduation…but with no job, little ambition and a girlfriend seems more interested in her boss than him, life is not exactly as he planned.
In a bid to get his life back on track and coerced by his womanising flatmate, Dan is introduced to the risqué sex scene that is DOGGING. Encountering an array of weird and wonderful characters looking for the ultimate high, it’s quickly clear that the scene is ripe for a journalistic exposé, which could kick-start his career.

Simon Ellis’s debut feature is a heartfelt screwball comedy, which contains sharp observation on love with all the perils, pitfalls and wrong turns it takes to find ‘the one’.
