    Providence, Rhode Island, 2017. When doctoral student Cameron Coelho, 28, opens a package from Indiana, he finds more than private papers that will help him with his dissertation. He finds a photograph of a beautiful society editor murdered in 1925 and clues to a century-old mystery. Within days, he meets Geoffrey Bell, the "time-travel professor", and begins an unlikely journey through the Roaring Twenties.

    I really enjoy John Heldt's novels and this one was no different. This book is interesting and kept my attention.I appreciate the fact that I am also learning a bit of history through his story's and in this novel Cameron Coelho was transported to the 1920's in Evansville, Illinois. Well written. The narrator is great. I would absolutely recommend this book!

    After struggling for years to have a child, Claire Rasmussen, 34, turns to adoption, only to find new obstacles on the path to motherhood. Then, she gets an unlikely phone call and soon learns that a distant uncle possesses the secrets of time travel. Within weeks, Claire, husband Ron, and brother David find themselves on a train to Tennessee and 1945, where adoptable infants are plentiful and red tape is short. For a time, they find what they seek. Then, a beautiful stranger enters their lives, the navy calls, and a simple, straightforward mission becomes a race for survival.

    This book was the 5th in the series and I find them all enjoyable and entertaining. I love the research that goes into these historical fiction books and that they're accurate. So far these time travelers all go back in time. I look forward to the next book in the series because I think that will change and we will get to see what John Heldt's future looks like. I'll be waiting.I agree with an earlier review that the narration was very good but I could have done without the "David said", "Claire said" etc. I too found this very distracting.

    1884. Several years earlier, young Rebecca Switzer lost her heart to Jesse Montgomery, a rugged but dissolute cowboy on a dusty cattle trail near the Amish settlement of Apple Grove. Now, she is grown up, and when she hears one day that he has been spotted nearby, her desire is plain and simple: She must see him. Sheriff Colin Maddox is counting the days until he can leave law enforcement and follow his dream of starting a church.

    This book was a delightful surprise. Well written and entertaining. I was surprised how well a typical western and Amish go together! I have not read the first book of this series but I will now. The narrator did a wonderful job and was pleasant to listen to. I would definitely recommend this book.

    Sit or lay in a comfortable, quiet place. Breathe in through your nose and fill your diaphragm with oxygen. Relax your nostrils. Relax your throat and tongue. Allow the air to flow freely into your abdomen. Look down at your belly and watch it fill and empty. With awareness, choose to breathe through your belly, rather than up into your chest and shoulders. Close your eyes and continue breathing in and out for at least 10 breaths. Don't hurry or slow your breath. Quiet your mind and just breathe at a comfortable pace.

    I'm not sure what I expected but it did put me to sleep. I have been interested in meditation and wanted to give it a try. The guided meditation was distracting for me. I was hoping for something that would teach me to meditate and not a go to sleep thing. I'm going to try this at different times for the next week or so and see how it goes.

    Are you familiar with terms such as Bitcoin, ethereum, litecoins, and whatnot? Maybe you have heard these terms, but do you have any idea about what they are? Maybe you know they are related to cryptocurrency, but do you know how to use them and move ahead investing through them? It is also possible that you may have used them to pay for a purchase done online or maybe you want to own some amount of cryptocurrency, but you have no idea what to do. Or maybe your lack of knowledge in this area makes you slightly scared about foraying into it. Don't worry. This guide will help you get started in cryptocurrency. You will learn all about what cryptocurrency is.

    Is your gut impacting your health? Find out if your gut is responsible for inflammation and a host of medical issues, from anxiety to autoimmune disorders. If you have an unhealthy gut, chances are you frequently suffer from heartburn, constipation, bloating, abdominal pain, and diarrhea. These symptoms occur frequently in people who have gut issues. But the good news is they can all be treated. Many people tend to treat the symptoms of an unhealthy gut, rather than trying to boost the health of the gut in the first place.

    Bitcoin may seem complicated at first, but is actually very simple to use. As long as the user is careful in securing their digital wallet and uses the system correctly, Bitcoin can be a very simple way to send and receive funds. While the first idea of cryptocurrency such as this was described by Wei Dai in 1998, the first real prototype, Bitcoin, was created by Satoshi Nakamoto, a name used by someone whose real identity is still unknown.

    Buddhism is a religion and dharma that encompasses a variety of traditions, beliefs, and spiritual practices largely based on teachings attributed to the Buddha. Buddhism originated in Ancient India sometime between the 6th and 4th centuries BCE, from where it spread through much of Asia, whereafter it declined in India during the Middle Ages. Two major extant branches of Buddhism are generally recognized by scholars: Theravada ("The School of the Elders") and Mahayana ("The Great Vehicle").
