In 1863, when Dr. Grant McKenzie announces his enlistment as a doctor in the Union Army, his family life is turned upside down. His military career begins as a field surgeon at Gettysburg, eventually leading to his capture at Spotsylvania and imprisonment in Andersonville Prison, changing his life forever. While in prison, he becomes part of a new family, made up of James, a tough thirteen -year- old Irish drummer boy from the streets of New York, and Gerard, a French farmer from Vermont. When Grant saves the young daughter of a Confederate captain, he repays the doctor by giving him the chance to escape, along with young James. The trip home through the Appalachians is arduous. Along the way, Grant delivers a baby, fights renegades, and faces death at the hands of two old mountain women. Meanwhile, Mattie, Grants wife, and their five children face enormous challenges and responsibilities at home while awaiting his return. When Grant doesnt return at the end of his one-year enlistment, the familys finances dwindle, and the workload overwhelms them. In answer to their prayers for help, Adan Torson, a large Nigerian free black man, shows up one day and offers to help them. However, Adan arrives with a dangerous secret that may put all their lives at risk.

Set in the universe as Sheffield's previous novel Cold As Ice, Dark As Day is a hard science fiction novel set 30 years after the Great War, and interplanetary war that nearly destroyed the entire human race, and left horrifyingly dangerous weapons caches to threaten human survival. The Solar System is finally recovering from the Great War - a war that devastated the planets and nearly wiped out the human race - and the population of the outer moons, orbiting Jupiter and Saturn, is growing. On one of those moons, Alex Ligon, scion of a great interplanetary trading family has developed a wonderfully accurate new population model, and cannot wait until the newly reconstituted "Seine," the interlinked network of computers that spans the planets and moons and asteroids, comes back on line. But when it does, and he extends his perfect model a century into the future, it predicts the complete destruction of the human race. On another moon, the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence goes on, undaunted by generations of failure. And to her amazement, Millie Wu, a young genius newly recruited to the project, has found a signal . . . a signal that is coming from outside the solar system. And in his new retreat on a minor moon of Saturn, the cranky genius Rustam Battacharyia is still collecting weapons from the Great War. He thinks he may have stumbled on an unexpected new one...but he'll need to disarm it before it destroys the Sun. “Sheffield leads us through the book with his usual wit, impeccable science, and command of the language. It is hard to think of anybody who is writing hard sf these days substantially better than he is.” —Booklist At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Romance and adventure novellas about contemporary North American upper middle class family, exposing highly intense drama behind a decent façade. Acting in exotic places of American wilderness, boardrooms of corporations or comfortable homes, dangerous locales of Jamaica and megalopolises of Canada and the US, the characters must deal with tough reality of competition, temptations and intense desires, often passing the threshold of morality and law. These are not purely romantic stories, although the intoxicating aura of romance permeates each novella. But love and happiness often go hand in hand with tragedy when the romance fizzles and the complex practical matters flood the souls and minds of lovers. Detailed in an elegant literary manner, the beautiful world around us is shown as having too many opportunities and temptations for some, which burden the human mind. Our morals, those unwritten rules that are supposed to supplement the laws governing society, are often unable to sustain the burden of passion and desire. Saturated with intense competition in business, love and social matters, life makes relations between the sexes more complicated than many can handle. The book will appeal to many different readers. Those who read solely for entertainment will find them intriguing and entertaining, while the more cerebral readers will discover the deep philosophical questions the stories pose.

The End and The Beginning: From Darkness to Light is a dramatic portrayal of the Son of God, the Pioneer of our faith: JESUS as depicted in the four gospels. This is His story: a story that reaffirms our belief and faith in Him as our Savior. He Was a Galilean Jew and well-acquainted with Jewish law. His birth, ministry, death and resurrection serve as a basis of Gods continuing proclamation of joy and sadness, despair and hope, isolation and crowds and apparent defeat but in the end VICTORY! It is a story that never leaves us: a story that our parents, the sons and daughters of slaves, born of religious convictions and faith, shared with us during the days of our early youth amidst sweat, tears and a weary life. They referred to Him, both in song and thought as their Sweet Little Jesus Boy. This was the only thing that they truly could claim as their own. A CHILD A SON IS GIVEN UNTO YOU AS GOD HAD PROMISED!
