correctness of our day that is governed by big brother elitists and opposed to
our Creator. Have ears to hear Jesus pleading with you to embrace his
teachings. Why? Because, when the howling Category 5 hurricanes of life buffet
you, your life's foundation can be made like granite by what you learn from
him. And if you listen, learn, and practice them, they will help protect your
family and help keep you safe from the raging winds and destructive forces of
life. Walk humbly with Jesus through this backward journey through the Bible
and discover Rock-Solid Living in a Quicksand World!
The Mystery History Series. By Sonny Barber, Life Member. CreateSpace Publishing.
Kay Telfair is a normal young teen
— normal if that means being unusually curious and having an uncanny knack for
putting herself in dangerous situations, which stress her parents and often
test her relationship with her best friend Anna. The clean reading series
follows Kay across two intrigue-filled summers on modern-day adventures
involving events in U.S. history.
Book One: Crossed and Found Thirteen-year-old Kay Telfair believes her life is over
when she moves with her family a thousand miles to their new home near the
Delaware River in New Jersey. But her life takes an unexpected turn when Kay
meets Anna and discovers a Revolutionary War letter, a letter that could change
American history. Before she unravels the letter’s mystery, Kay stumbles
headlong into an adventure — confronting fears she’d never experienced,
stretching the limits of her friendship with Anna, and forcing a test of Kay’s
physical strength that could save her own life. ISBN 978-1-49530-405-7.
Book Two: Gold Hush After an adventure-filled June, all Kay Telfair wants is a
quiet vacation in Maine with her family and best friend Anna — no drama, no
stress. But the 13-year-old’s hopes for a tranquil August stay in the village
of Prospect Harbor soon fade when the girls compete for the attention of a
young boy, and Kay makes a startling discovery, a discovery that sends the
three teens on a dangerous quest. Ignoring advice and menacing threats from
others, they continue their pursuit, drawing them deeper into a perilous
mystery — deeper than Kay ever could have imagined. ISBN 978-1-49962-383-3.
Book Three: Stonewalled A mystery that threatens the relationship with best friend
Anna, a battle with Mother Nature at her worst, and the discovery of a tragic
secret — not exactly what 14-year-old Kay Telfair was looking for in a summer
getaway. But that’s what confronts the young teen while helping the owners of
Windcrest Farm find a way to stop destruction of nearby farmland and its
300-year-old stone walls. Vacationing with her family and Anna at Windcrest in
the quiet, coastal village of Little Compton, R.I., the young teen soon
discovers her goal will not be easy. Kay’s prospects for helping preserve the
valuable land and stone walls look much better, however, after a surprise visit
by a boy from her past. With his help, she pours all her energy and passion
into the quest, searching for answers in New England’s Native American and colonial
history and learning some important lessons about perseverance and friendship.
