Thomas Jefferson Family Secrets

 

Nonfiction / Biography / History

Date Published: 2-1-22

Publisher: Palmetto Publishing / Blackstone Publishing



A fascinating biography of Thomas Jefferson that presents an entirely new and provocative look at the final years of his life, as seen through the eyes of his most trusted family confidants. A powerful profile based on fresh research and unpublished memoirs.


Excerpt

On April 13, 1943, President Franklin D. Roosevelt dedicated the Jefferson Memorial on the edge of the Tidal Basin in Washington, DC. World War II had injected the two hundredth anniversary of Thomas Jefferson’s birth with special significance. The tide of history had just shifted its course. One of the foremost political figures in American history finally took his place in the ultimate American pantheon, within sight of George Washington’s soaring monument and Abraham Lincoln’s brooding, seated statue. No American has ever before enjoyed such a transcendent status as Thomas Jefferson. And over the next 250 years of American history, no public figure would ever reach the same historic heights.

This is the triumphant “political” image of Jefferson, yet one far from reality. Jefferson had desired to live in the “tranquil, permanent felicity” that flowed from a secluded home life at his elegant mountain estate, Monticello.[i] But during the last seventeen years of his cloistered family life, his story was infused with high drama in a congealed world of alcoholism, domestic violence, family jealousies, bankruptcy, and a grisly murder. Then came a humiliating series of political wounds, including an alleged sexual affair with a slave, corroding Jefferson’s personal and professional reputation.

[i] Thomas Jefferson, Letters and Addresses of Thomas Jefferson, ed. William B. Parker (Buffalo: National Jefferson Society, 1903), 43.

For the Bright Ones

 

May they come out of the shadows


Poetry

DATE PUBLISHED: 14 February, 2022


photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

This collection of poems came as a surprise to me.

When something is easy, brings joy and excitement I do more of it and that is what happened here. Poetry has been a life-long pleasure, but usually as a reader. I have dabbled in writing private pieces before, then these came.

Sometimes, there is a meeting of two people that changes everything.

This book is a result of one of those times. The words coming through on the music of a guitar; the notes and melodies acting as a muse; the song as an anchor to hold onto while playing with the creative force that is available to all of us. It opened a channel for me and the words dropped onto the page. Most times, I felt vulnerable to read them, let alone share them, but here they are for you.

My work in the world has always been the work of the heart and of the soul, connecting people to a deeper truth of themselves. Helping people to remember that they are connected to something wonderful and vast. Opening them up to their inner spiritual power. This book is another vehicle for that intention of my life.

May it remind you of your own heart’s strength.

Sarah x



Teaser

Awake but still asleep,


My dream pulls at my mind.

A door appears inviting me to find my way

This space so far unknown,

A place of growth and of change.


Where there is a crone,

A wise woman bent over, grey-haired and kind.

She looks at me nodding,

She’s been waiting for a while.


I heard her whisper years ago.

Sarah,” she said, “it is time.”

I shook her words away from me,

I ran, closed down, denied.


But as the time ticks on,

Its straight line pointing true.

There came this day

When I wanted more

Of me, of us, of you.


She holds my life and all I’ve learned

And mixes it you see

With everything there has ever been

In you, in us, in me.


The child within has found her home

The girl has settled down.

The mother is someone I know well

And I wear the goddess gown.


And now I wait, awake yet still asleep

For the crone to pass her crown.

Forged in Magical Fire by Brenda Trim


 

Hot flashes have nothing on bursting into flames…
Forged in Magical Fire by Brenda Trim continues the Midlife Witchery saga on September 6!

PREORDER A COPY TODAY!
Universal: 
https://geni.us/MagicalFire

BLURB:

Guess who just discovered her Phoenix lineage? I’d rather go back to just being cursed. Hot flashes have nothing on bursting into flames…

Imps are taking over Cottlehill Wilds, wreaking havoc at every turn. Chasing them around my store with unreliable magic, while not alerting the mundies, is harder than raising twins.

To make matters worse, the target on my back has never been bigger since I killed the demon our resident psychopath summoned. Car bombs and ambush hoards? Someone really wants me out of the picture.

And wouldn’t you know that Fate has decided to mess with whatever is developing between me and Thanos just as I finally decided to open up to him.

Bad news for all the haters: it’s going to take more than a car bomb, a trip to the Underworld, and a dip in the River Lethe to get under my lightly wrinkled skin. With a top-of-the-line moisturizer and a fully charged fire extinguisher, I’ve got this too.

Andy:

I just ended my rookie year with the Seattle Sockeyes in a win-or-go-home game, and we went home. I played a big part in that loss thanks in part to my lack of team play. It’s time to lick my wounds, re-examine my role, and come to terms with demons I’ve been avoiding for too long. I buy an RV and take to the wilderness for a little solitude and lot of soul-searching. Just me, my dog Bones, and nature. There’s one problem. My campsite neighbor is a too-cheerful, busy-body camp host. She brings out the worst in me, but I can’t stop thinking about sharing a sleeping bag with her.


Kennedy:

As a brand ambassador for a large RV manufacturer, it’s my job to make sure everyone is enjoying their camping experience. Usually I’m quite good at fixing problems and assisting campers until I meet the hot, grumpy hockey player next door. He claims he wants to be left alone; but after one look at his lost expression, I’m certain that’s the last thing he needs. To complicate things, we have chemistry, the kind which blazes past all misgivings and singes everyone in sight.

Time Stamps by K.L. Kreig


 ” Time Stamps has left such a deep long-lasting impression on our hearts through the magnificent story of love told by K.L. Kreig.” – Totally Booked Blog

Time
Stamps by K.L. Kreig releases on August 17th!

Available on all platforms

Time stamps.

Our life is marked by them. Significant milestones to the seemingly mundane. All of them have a place. A purpose. Moments and chapters stacking on each other, building scars and memories. Creating stories that are only ours to tell.

But those stamps are finite, pre-determined. And eventually our allotment runs out.

This is our story. Our collection of time stamps. The culmination of our love, our struggles, our redemption and our heartbreak. This story isn’t always easy, but it is real. A genuine account of utter devotion, where every page is crammed with pure emotion and truth and the gift of loving another person more than yourself. Share with us in our dreams, our laughter. Cry with us in our sorrows, our pain.

Take this journey through our time stamps with Laurel and I, and I will meet you at the end.

~ Roth Warren Keswick
