Harvesting Ashwood Minnesota 2037 by Cynthia Kraack

Harvesting Ashwood: Minnesota 2037‘ by Cynthia Kraack (North Star Press) is available for FREE download on the Amazon US Kindle site. Just click here to download! Also at Amazon UK, and Amazon CA.

Book Description

In the decade following the horrible depression of the 2020s, hard work and determination have brought a sense of security to Anne Hartford and her extended family. Finally, no one on the estate experiences hunger, everyone has a warm bed and the children receive a good education.

The residents of the U.S. metropolitan areas may not fare as well. A nation that so recently experienced hunger and deprivation could be devastated again, if rumors of government trading of precious agricultural commodities prove to be true. A diminished population has caused government, private industry and the military to compete for labor.

In looking at the rich fields of the Ashwood estate, Anne Hartfords greatest concern is finding people who can harvest the crops in 2037, now that government-assigned labor is no longer available. Suddenly, Annes husband is abducted while on a Department of Energy trip to South American. A strange bureaucrat arrives at Ashwood, allegedly to manage media interests. Dual scandals rock her family as well as the country, posing troubling questions about the rights of children, the role of big government and the self-determination of individuals.

Harvesting Ashwood: Minnesota 2037 is a provocative story told in the speculative fiction tradition of George Orwell.

Christianish: What If We're Not Really Following Jesus at All? by Mark Steele

Christianish: What If We’re Not Really Following Jesus at All?‘ by Mark Steele (David C. Cook) is available for FREE download on the Amazon UK Kindle site. Just click here to download!

Book Description

It may feel like authentic faith. It may even look like the real deal. Yet it’s often easy to settle for the souvenir t-shirt—the appearance of a transformed heart—instead of taking the actual trip through true life-change. We find ourselves settling for a personal faith that’s been polluted by culture, and diluted by other people’s take on spirituality.

Christianish tells the story of one man’s journey to move from the in-between to a life that’s centered on Christ. To move forward, author Mark Steele goes back to the beginning, to examine Christ’s life and words. Through stories and insights that are sometimes profound, often hilarious, and always honest, Mark delivers a compelling look at what our faith is all about.
