This is the story of the heroism of Margaret Utinsky, who, against unbelievable and fantastic odds, for three years led an underground organization in the Philippines in a relentless and telling effort to aid American prisoners of war held by the Japanese. Dauntless and determined, she pushed into the background her own personal loss, faced the twin demons of physical and mental anguish, and “stood up” to circumstances and conditions which most of us find inconceivable. In her own words, she became “accustomed to doing the impossible.” And gaunt prisoners behind walls and wires, guerrillas in the hills, the faithful in Manila—all felt the force of the courageous leadership of this small dynamo, for whom “something always happened.”

"David Andreas's debut novella, Angel of the Underground, will remind many horror fans of Stephen King's first published novel, Carrie...Andreas's tight and tense horror tale is a spellbinding and clever debut. He also has more on his mind than merely a straightforward thriller. His smart, sympathetic and engaging teen heroine grapples with the Catholic faith that has sustained her for so many years but now seems to have abandoned her. Proving good things come in small packages (the novel is just 165 pages), Angel of the Underground is a tight and thoughtful thriller, and a stellar introduction to a fresh new voice." --Shelf Awareness "Debuting author Andreas layers a sense of foreboding with spats of violence to create a sinister and atmospheric story that will appeal to horror fans." --Booklist "Horror fans will love David Andreas's Angel of the Underground. With an intelligent teen heroine and a thrilling story that twists the Catholic faith and the dark reality of human nature, this story is truly a masterpiece you won't be able to put down!" --My Shelf "Angel of the Underground by David Andreas is a fun romp through a derelict doll factory...It is character heavy with just the right amount of suspense and gore to make it a horror purists dream...It is perfect for a vacation from reality without being trite or overly complicated...I strongly recommend it." --Signal Horizons "David Andreas was a super-talented contributor to Fangoria during its glory gory days. His fiction debut bodes well for readers of unique and scary horror." --Tony Timpone, former editor, Fangoria magazine When three children in a Catholic group home are brutally murdered, the survivors are hurried into separate foster homes across Long Island. Robin Hills, a fifteen-year-old who has spent the past several years under religious care, is thrust into a new, dysfunctional family with no spiritual beliefs. No longer protected by the religion and the nun she had come to love, Robin is completely alone and enveloped in fear. As the murders continue and Robin fears she may become the next victim, her faith increasingly falters. However, she finds solace in a budding friendship with Dennis, a boy her age living in her new foster home. Dennis’s kindness, his acceptance of Robin, and his bravery in the face of evil—born of his passion for horror movies—combine to reassure her that she'll survive the killings. Armed with this new friendship and fueled by a rage she finally discovers within herself, Robin finds the courage and self-reliance to confront the darkest aspects of human depravity.

The Gettysburg Address - November 19, 1863 President Abraham Lincoln Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.... The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us-that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion-that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain-that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom-and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth. Sheryl White's powerful book takes readers back to slavery. Her clear-cut writing style, ability to use realistic and well developed characters as well as her strong background knowledge on the subject matter create a well-penned novel. The protagonist, Laura Haviland, is a neutral, yet critical witness to the savagery and brutality of slavery. Readers follow the journey of slaves and their freedom, meeting Sojourner Truth, but also witness how Laura delights in the glory of God. Xulon Press Review.
