In the gripping sequel to the Philip K. Dick Award-winning novel The Book of the Unnamed Midwife, one woman undertakes a desperate journey to rescue the future. Etta comes from Nowhere, a village of survivors of the great plague that wiped away the world that was. In the world that is, women are scarce and childbearing is dangerous...yet desperately necessary for humankind's future. Mothers and midwives are sacred, but Etta has a different calling. As a scavenger. Loyal to the village but living on her own terms, Etta roams the desolate territory beyond: salvaging useful relics of the ruined past and braving the threat of brutal slave traders, who are seeking women and girls to sell and subjugate. When slavers seize those she loves, Etta vows to release and avenge them. But her mission will lead her to the stronghold of the Lion--a tyrant who dominates the innocent with terror and violence. There, with no allies and few weapons besides her wits and will, she will risk both body and spirit not only to save lives but also to liberate a new world's destiny.

Beautiful, elusive, and refined, Etta Place captivated the nation at the turn of the last century as she dodged the law with the Wild Bunch, led by Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. Her true identity and fate have remained a mystery that has tantalized historians for decades. Now, for the first time, Gerald Kolpan envisions this remarkable woman’s life in a stunning debut novel. Kolpan imagines that Etta Place was born Lorinda Jameson, the daughter of a prominent financier, who becomes known as the loveliest of the city’s debutantes when she makes her entrance into Philadelphia society. Though her position in life is already assured, her true calling is on horseback. She can ride as well as any man and handle a rifle even better. But when a tragedy leads to a dramatic reversal of fortune, Lorinda is left orphaned, penniless, homeless, and pursued by the ruthless Black Hand mafia. Rechristened “Etta Place” to ensure her safety, the young woman travels to the farthest reaches of civilization, working as a “Harvey Girl” waitress in Grand Junction, Colorado. There, fate intervenes once more and she again finds herself on the run from the ruthless Pinkerton Detective Agency. But this time she has company. She soon finds herself at the legendary hideout at Hole-in-the-Wall, Wyoming, where she meets the charismatic Butch Cassidy and the handsome, troubled Harry Longbaugh, a.k.a. the Sundance Kid. Through a series of holdups and heists, Etta and Harry begin an epic and ultimately tragic romance, which will be the greatest of Etta’s life. Then, when Etta meets the young and idealistic Eleanor Roosevelt, her life is changed forever. Blending a compelling love story, high adventure, and thrilling historical drama, Etta is an electrifying novel. With a sweeping 1900s setting, colorful storytelling, and larger-than-life characters, Etta is debut that is both captivating and unforgettable.

C. Etta Powers Book of Poems By C. Etta Powers C. Etta Powers is a freelance writer. She began writing poetry over 30 years ago at the behest of friends for weddings and other special events. C. Etta Powers says she was inspired to pen her love gone wrong poems, “Why I Prayed Yo Ass Away,” “Indelible Ink” and “The Pill,” because of internet cheating and also because of Viagra, which gave renewed hope to once impotent cheaters. She says that both the internet and Viagra continue to leave a trail of tears and heartache in their wake. C. Etta Powers’ socio/political poems cover incarceration, ex-prisoners (“An Ex-Prisoners Prayer”), wrongful convictions, gentrification, immigration, racism, and more. Her political views are reflected in “Death of The GOP,” “The House That Boener Built,” “I’ll Fight For My Money” (about social security), “Bring The Jobs Back Home” and other pro-Obama poems and songs.

This “poetic, poignant” (US Weekly) debut features last great adventures, unlikely heroes, and a “sweet, disarming story of lasting love” (The New York Times Book Review). Eighty-three-year-old Etta has never seen the ocean. So early one morning she takes a rifle, some chocolate, and her best boots and begins walking the 3,232 kilometers from rural Saskatchewan, Canada eastward to the sea. As Etta walks further toward the crashing waves, the lines among memory, illusion, and reality blur. Otto wakes to a note left on the kitchen table. “I will try to remember to come back,” Etta writes to her husband. Otto has seen the ocean, having crossed the Atlantic years ago to fight in a far-away war. He understands. But with Etta gone, the memories come crowding in and Otto struggles to keep them at bay. Meanwhile, their neighbor Russell has spent his whole life trying to keep up with Otto and loving Etta from afar. Russell insists on finding Etta, wherever she’s gone. Leaving his own farm will be the first act of defiance in his life. Moving from the hot and dry present of a quiet Canadian farm to a dusty, burnt past of hunger, war, and passion, from trying to remember to trying to forget, Etta and Otto and Russell and James is an astounding literary debut “of deep longing, for reinvention and self-discovery, as well as for the past and for love and for the boundless unknown” (San Francisco Chronicle). “In this haunting debut, set in a starkly beautiful landscape, Hooper delineates the stories of Etta and the men she loved (Otto and Russell) as they intertwine through youth and wartime and into old age. It’s a lovely book you’ll want to linger over” (People).

Etta's Lessons begins with a mystery. In the early 1550s, Brigetta Rolland has a secret. But her actions soon have her father, Lord Rolland, looking into her behavior. When her secret comes out, Rolland can only guess at the reasons for his sheltered daughter's involvement. Brigetta is rocked to her very foundation when her beloved father is murdered and she is thrust into a world she knows little about. Etta finds herself on the run with her handmaiden and her father's first knight. After several months, she realizes that she is also on the run for her own future and perhaps for the lives of all around her. Understanding for the first time the politics and the religious battles that rage around her, Etta is determined to have some control over her future. Learning about life outside the walls of her father's keep, Brigetta forms strong bonds with those who hold her fate in their hands. She falls in love with a brave and honest young knight. When the opportunity to place herself before young King Edward presents itself, her guardians put their lives on the line to get Etta an audience with the king. Just as all seems to be lost, King Edward's decree rights the world again. But his gift becomes a curse, and Brigetta once again runs away, this time ending up in the hands of the enemy.
