By Nemen M. Kpahn

Liberian President Roberts is seen as too non-aligned, and he appears to be drawing his nation away from its traditional United States sphere of influence—a dangerous strategy in the 1970s during the Cold War. Maxwell Forkpa and Samuel Dahn, two young and dashing military men, are influenced by the Americans to overthrow the civilian government. Capitalizing on historical divisions between the Settlers and tribal Liberians, the successful coup is initially welcomed by the vast majority of Liberians, especially when the coup makers pledge to return the country to civilian rule.

Soon, the friends who staged the coup are torn by ambitions and rivalries, and they become bitter enemies. Forkpa is tempestuous and is charmed by life at the top as head of state. Enamored by the presidency, he is determined to cling to power at all cost. Dahn is a cool professional soldier who, though charmed by life in the limelight, wishes for a return to true civilian rule devoid of military men who have exchanged their uniforms for suits.

In the clash between the two, Dahn is forced to flee Liberia. Finding himself in involuntary exile, Dahn becomes obsessed with removing Forkpa, his archrival, from power in an aggressive manner. This sets the stage for a violent conflict which will drag the two men and their nation down into the abyss of anarchy.

It is July 19, 1863 when the Amazon arrives from London at the New York docks with eight hundred Mormons on board. Among the arriving Saints are seven young, unmarried, unrelated “sisters in the gospel,” who have been placed together as a family during their forty-four-day voyage. The Seven Sisters, as they have come to be called, have become close enough to vow to stay together all the way to their new home in Utah.

The Sisters must now travel overland by railroads and waterways to the Mormon outfitting camp in Nebraska Territory, where they plan to join the “down and back” wagons and trek to the Salt Lake Valley. As they make this journey, the Sisters experience many difficulties—from the rigors of changing trains and riverboats to sleeping outside in unpredictable weather to wondering when or where they will find their next sustenance. While facing unexpected accidents, sickness, and loss, the Sisters trek the last thousand miles on foot in unforgiving environments with the possibility of cattle and buffalo stampedes, hostile Indians, and treacherous river crossings.

In this continuing historical tale, the Seven Sisters must face their biggest fears and rely on their faith, courage, and optimism to survive this challenging journey to their “Zion” home.

John Alston quietly wonders what it is about his face that makes other people think he is someone else. Even though he looks nothing like his three siblings or anyone else in his family, in his eyes, he is just a normal middle-aged man trying to make his way in the world. But one day during a chance encounter with a German visitor at the World War I museum, everything changes.

John is taken aback as he is introduced to a German man who shares the same features as him. It is as if he is peering into a mirror. Even more odd is that he shares the same first name with the man. After he eventually parts ways with the stranger and his family, John cannot shake his feelings of uneasiness—especially when he learns that his father has just received a letter in the mail, all penned in German. Inspired by the strange chain of events, John embarks on a quest to find answers that lead him to research his own family history, question everything he has ever known, and uncover a shocking truth.

The Last Casualty of the Great War is the poignant tale of one man’s journey through history as he attempts to discover his identity and the reality of his roots.

It is the late 1960s, and Jimi Hendrix is at the height of his career, America is undergoing political and social upheaval, and a rock and roll band is shaking the rafters of its suburban Maryland high school. As Preston, the founder and lead guitarist of Homegrown cranks out the tunes with keyboardist, Neal, and drummer, Brad, three girls appoint themselves as the band’s official groupies without any idea of what lies ahead for any of them.

After the band members sign with a management company and make the controversial decision to replace popular Brad with another drummer, they decide to pursue a dubious lead in England, accompanied by the girls who love them: Candy, an aspiring journalist; Hope, wannabe model and fashion designer; and Theda, a thespian with big dreams. As their journey takes them to Europe and back again, the girls—challenged by love rivals, partying lifestyles, and the growing stardom of the musicians—remain determined not to be mere “handmaidens of rock.” But it is not until Brad embarks on a vengeful quest at a festival that the three finally have the opportunity to prove their worth as grown women.

Handmaidens of Rock is the compelling tale of three high-school girls who attach themselves to a rock and roll band in the late 1960s and embark on a wild adventure across the world.
