Cleveland, OH, USA — In the spring of 1931 a conspiracy in Germany to assassinate President Hindenburg and elevate the Kaiser’s son to the throne threatens the peace of Europe and sets off an epic quest to discover the secret hiding place of the Spear of Destiny, the lance which pierced the side of Christ. Kaiser Wilhelm II insists that the missing Spear-a talisman of bloodthirsty conquerors from Constantine to Frederick the Great-must be found and restored to his family.

Adolf Hitler also deeply reveres Frederick the Great and wants the Spear every bit as much as the Kaiser. So does Winston Churchill-growling in the political wilderness-who has gotten wind of the two German tyrants’ obsession with the Spear and is determined to deny both of them a symbol that has led in the past to so much bloodshed.

Churchill enlists his Scottish goddaughter Mattie McGary, an adventure-seeking photojournalist for the Hearst media empire, to embark upon a quest to find the Spear and vindicate the vision of her late grail-scholar father. He also persuades law professor Bourke Cockran, Jr., a former military intelligence agent and Mattie’s lover, to represent a US company in Germany targeted by a Nazi extortion racket in Munich.

Mattie’s quest leads her to a mysterious villa in Egypt and then to a stronghold high in the Austrian Alps where she is in danger from religious fanatics sworn to protect the Spear as well as Hitler’s SS and the ruthless leader of her own expedition who is both secretly working for the Kaiser and determined to seduce a vulnerable Mattie who mistakenly believes Cockran has left her for another woman. Learning that Mattie’s life is in peril, Cockran mounts a desperate airborne mission to rescue the woman he loves.

Michael McMenamin is the author of the critically acclaimed Becoming Winston Churchill, The Untold Story of Young Winston and His American Mentor. His son Patrick McMenamin is an award-winning journalist who has produced stories for ABC News, Fox News, HuffPost and Buzzfeed.

Ilene Sims Encourages Others to Break Free and Become Empowered

Working as a pastor, Ilene Sims has been trained to listen and watch others carefully.

San Antonio, TX, USA, May 30, 2018 — “Working with young people and adults alike, I know firsthand that there can be, at certain times, many areas in our lives that are hurting.”

This is a reality that she faces every day in her work as a hospice chaplain, giving spiritual guidance to those in need during the last stages of their lives, as well as providing support to families and loved ones.

However, at a difficult time in her own life, after having gone through a divorce, a friend gave Sims a gift that would forever change her outlook on her life, as well as those around her. Her friend gave her a red-factor canary, named Frankie. Red-factor canaries are unique from other birds because their owner can actually influence their color.

Sims had had birds before, but never one quite like Frankie.

The relationship between animals and humans is something that modern science is just beginning to understand. For instance, innovative medicine programs are beginning to accept that there is much to learn from a cross-disciplinary approach between human and animal medicine, for example.

But even beyond the field of medicine, the parallels between humans and animals have much to teach us about who we are.

“You can overcome difficulty. That’s what I learned from Frankie. There comes a time to trust somebody. Frankie would perk up in the morning: he recognized my voice. As humans, we share that same ability to go to the Lord. There is help and there is hope, but you will never meet your full potential if you are hiding.”

The series of events that Sims shared with Frankie were so profound that she decided to write a book about it, using her experience with Frankie as a metaphor for her own life and challenges, one that she knows can speak to a diversity of readers who are going through their own challenges.

“This is a time on the earth when people need hope more than perhaps ever before,” Sims says. “My intention is for my book to give them that hope.”

“This is a unique account of the bond between a bird and a woman that can offer readers of any age insight into their own lives,” adds publisher Lisa M. Umina.
