Note to self: Do NOT fall in love with Matthias Frailey—he’s been dead for over 175 years!

Professor Merrideth Randall’s latest after-hours research project takes her and friends Abby and John to a small southern Illinois town, where with the help of her time-rewinding software they become virtual eyewitnesses to the arrival of the Cherokee via the Golconda Ferry on December 3, 1838. 

They cannot tear their eyes away from the unfolding tragedy—nor from Matthias Frailey’s heroic response to it. The people are herded down Main Street on their Trail of Tears, bound for the Oklahoma Country, while the townsfolk only watch, or even cheer. But not Matthias. He does what he can to help them, especially a very spirited—and very pregnant—woman named White Dove who insists on walking so others may ride in the wagons. 

After spending so much time inside Matthias’ head, Merrideth has no doubt that he is as kind and selfless as he appears to be, and so she must remind herself not to fall in love with a man who has been dead for over 175 years. 

Meanwhile, in the here and now, handsome Golconda historian Aaron Landis is doggedly pursuing her. And back home her McKendree College colleague Professor Brett Garrison keeps calling, impatient for her return. But are they—or any man—worthy of her trust? Too bad there isn’t a way to time-surf in their heads. Now that would be a dating tool she could really put to good use!

The magic continues when North Carolina history mixes with the paranormal in the Max Porter Paranormal Mysteries. This highly addictive series will keep you turning pages late into the night.

SOUTHERN GOTHIC (Book 4)
Times are rough for Max and Sandra. They’ve lost their income, live in a trailer, and struggle to make ends meet – all due to the resurrected Tucker Hull. To make matters worse, the ghost detective, Marshall Drummond, refuses to move on and resides in their trailer.

Barely able to afford food, they are desperate to get back on their feet. So, when Max’s sole client is murdered in the mysterious Baxter House, he knows they’ve reached the breaking point. And there’s only one way out – push on through.

Max, Drummond, and Sandra will face secret societies, stolen gold, hidden codes, the darkest magic, and of course, the Hulls. The only question – will they live through it all?

SOUTHERN HAUNTS (Book 5)
Max and Sandra Porter have encountered many frightening things in North Carolina — witches, curses, covens, and evil families to name a few — encounters that left them broke and broken. Now, just as Max and Sandra are getting their lives back together, they meet a pregnant woman convinced her house is trying to possess her baby.

But this is no ordinary haunted house.

Every avenue they investigate leads Max to the same daunting conclusion — there is no ghost doing the haunting. Yet something supernatural clearly is involved. Along with his trusty partner, the ghost of a 1940s detective named Drummond, Max will use all his skills and the aid of those he cares about to uncover the truth. But a long-hidden truth is a dangerous thing. For Max and Sandra, it might even be deadly.

SOUTHERN CURSES (Book 6)
When Max and Sandra moved to North Carolina, they walked into a world of ghost, witches, and curses. Over the years, and with the help of the ghost of 1940s detective Marshall Drummond, they have fought to build a life for themselves.

But now, it all goes on the line. No fight of their past can match what awaits when the Hull family and the Magi Group go to war. Caught between the magic and muscle of these groups, Max and Sandra will have to call in all the help they can find if they are to survive.

Only one thing is for sure. Everything will change.

Maps, Mystery and Interpretation: 2. The Mystery: Oak Island Speculation (Volume 2)

Price: $20.00
(as of Jan 23,2019 16:42:14 UTC – Details)



Oak Island in Perspective: The search for buried treasure lies, for most, in dreams and fantasy – requiring little to spark an interest which, for most people, rapidly fades. It is rare to find tangible and verifiable clues as to the existence of a treasure hoard. When treasure is found, it may have been pursued (for example, by metal detector), but is usually found by chance, and its location is more than likely random. This is not so with Oak Island. It is said that, in 1795, three young men discovered indications of a buried treasure on this island in Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia. In a clearing, they found an oak tree with a tackle-block overhanging a depression in the ground. This opened up into a shaft that later excavation revealed to be over one hundred and twenty feet deep with a supposed treasure platform which, with the treasure within reach, crashed into the depths. Over the last two hundred years, exploration on the island has revealed many mysterious markers and ground features – but no treasure. The quest for answers to the mystery has generated much speculation. Who was responsible, and what, and where are its origins? In this work, the author looks at some of the thinking that has been applied to the Oak Island mystery, and the possible implications of the discovery of treasure maps that, for a time, were believed to have applied to the island and its treasure.



A Study of History, Vol. 2: Abridgement of Volumes VII-X

Price: $24.99 - $23.11
(as of Jan 13,2019 11:04:51 UTC – Details)



Acknowledged as one of the greatest achievements of modern scholarship, Arnold Toynbee’s A Study of History is a ten-volume analysis of the rise and fall of human civilizations. Contained in two volumes, D.C. Somervell’s abridgement of this magnificent enterprise preserves the method, atmosphere, texture, and, in many instances, the very words of the original. First published in 1947 and 1957, these two volumes are themselves a great historical achievement. Volume 2, which abridges Volumes VII-X of Toynbee’s study, includes sections on Universal States, Universal Churches, Heroic Ages, Contacts Between Civilizations in Space, Contacts Between Civilizations in Time, Law and Freedom in HIstory, The Prospects of the Western Civilization, and the Conclusion.

Of Somervell’s work, Toynbee wrote, “The reader now has at his command a uniform abridgement of the whole book, made by a clear mind that has not only mastered the contents but has entered into the writer’s outlook and purpose.

“I have been interested in the Second World War since listening to my Grandparents’ conversations as a child and I’ve always enjoyed books on the subject. Cheryl Pula’s latest book ‘It’s a Mystery: Puzzles of World War II’ takes the reader on an intriguing journey through some of the major mysteries of the conflict – Rudolf Hess, The Philadelphia Experiment, The Amber Room, Glenn Miller and Raoul Wallenberg. A very good read and a must for anyone interested in WW II.” Lucy London, Granddaughter of a WW1 Old Contemptible who also served in WW II. www.femalewarpoets.blogspot.co.uk, England. “This really is a fascinating read. Although I knew about some of the subject matter already, Cheryl Pula goes into a lot more depth and really makes you want to find out more about these great conspiracies. I have seen movies about the Philadelphia Experiment and Raoul Wallenberg in the past but Cheryl’s research helps to separate fact from the fiction. Even if you are not keen on books about the Second World War, you are sure to find something of interest here.” Paul Breeze, Broadcaster & Media Consultant, www.bestkeptsecrets.biz “Another great book from Cheryl Pula. ‘It’s a Mystery’ sheds light on events that took place in WWII. This book is a great addition to her recent WWII series of the B-17 crews of the 8th Army Air Force. This one you cannot put down, every page is loaded with events that make you wonder. I recommend this book …” Joe Shay (Captain World Airways).
