    Something like 108 billion people have lived on our planet during its history, and despite all of the experiences in all of the lifetimes of all of those people, we have still not found a way to exist together in peace and harmony, much less create individual lives with a powerfully glorious, intrinsic meaning and a wonderfully joyful purpose. Life has such a meaning and purpose, but across thousands of years only a very small number of human beings seem to have really understood it. Until now. Now, everyone seems to be "getting it" all at once - and agreeing with one another, at last, that it truly is...The Only Thing That Matters.

    In the potent and poignant language of fine literature, this stunningly honest autobiographical novel grants candid views of chronic illness, blindness, and Native American racial identity, against the backdrop of a world often determined to demean, degrade, and disenfranchise. Though Amy Krout-Horn's inheritance brings illness, it also brings strong medicine, from the profound wisdom of her Lakota ancestors. But can the ancient council fire's "spark" that ignited within a young girl's heart continue to guide the woman, even as the monster drags her into the "darkest darkness"?

    The soul is eternal, and no more so than in Steve Lindahl's White Horse Regressions. It is the story of a group of individuals destined to share their lives throughout time, be it in ancient China during the Han dynasty, in 19th-century London during Jack the Ripper's reign of terror, or in a small town rocked by murder in present-day Vermont. It's been almost a year since Hannah Hersman's girlfriend was killed, and the police still have no leads, no suspects, and no one in custody.
