  • The Boy Who Gave Away His Mother's Shoes

    The Boy Who Gave Away His Mother’s Shoes

    TO THE READER

    So many hats we must wear in today’s complex society! Even under a single hat or head covering, our thoughts are conceived, varied and fast-paced. I love the way our society functions and how determined we usually are to be part of the way it works. I also appreciate that many of us still can find comfort in personal, quiet time. For me, and hopefully for you, reading is precious time. The wonder that books and stories captured in our minds lets us travel far and near and permits us to go beyond the past or into the future as our minds allow. In reading stories, travel is done with comfort and satisfaction. For some of us, good story telling also promotes diverse cultural understanding.

    The stories in this book allow us to forget about the hat we usually wear at the time we pick up a book. We can be introduced to familiar or unique persons with whom we may have a symbiotic experience. With any good read, you can change to mix with the characters when they become introduced into your life.

    Since reading is such an individualistic endeavor of choice to achieve enjoyment and distraction, it is probably the best selection to add entertainment to your day. This may include new thoughts that take us away from the structures that trap us with responsibilities.

    These stories are like having a friendly companion who distracts us from chores or the dwelling on more mundane callings. Rethinking the plots in these stories may also add to some of your personal recollections. I say this because, for me, writing stories triggered thoughts about other experiences I have had. I find that the more I have to think about, the more I have in my head to record. Enjoy!

  • The Day The Horses Went to The Fair: Animal Lover and Painter: Rosa Bonheur

    The Day the Horses Went to the Fair: Animal Lover and Painter: Rosa Bonheur

    An author always looks for an angle when writing fiction which Beaupré has done with this novel. He came up with revenants or ghosts for all of his characters as a way of weaving the story together without making it a documentary of Rosa Bonheur’s life and paintings of animals. The author has conjured the likes of a Mozart, a Cervantes and Sir Walter Scott while including other creative artists that influenced Rosa Bonheur. He has also incorporated the descriptions of the Bonheur paintings by herself, the artist, and by her close friend, Anna Klumpke. He has created what he calls a singular novel in that it is not all fiction but an amalgamation of biography, art history and some fiction to make it a creatively cohesive work. The author even intrudes into his work to give it a personal and lively touch.

    Norman Beaupré, Ph.D. was born in Maine and pursued his graduate education at Brown University. He taught over thirty years at the University of New England in Maine where he is presently Professor Emeritus. He has traveled extensively and spent two sabbaticals in Paris. He has written and published twenty-one books in English and in French. In 2008, he was awarded the medal of “Ordre des Arts et Lettres” by the French Ministry of Culture and Communications in Paris for his outstanding contribution to French culture.

  • The Gates of Death: Nostradamus Decoded

    The Gates of Death: Nostradamus Decoded

    In this Book, The Gates of Death: Nostradamus Decoded is many encouraging past, present and future events to be examined. In addition, the book examines all types of events like the Apollo Moon landings. I greatly advise anybody to examine the Moon landing photos anywhere, but the easiest access is on the Internet under “Moon landing hoax.” After viewing these photos, you will come to the same conclusion that I did. The Moon landings just did not happen! However, I hope this book did more than just teach people about the Moon landings. Best regards to all my current and future readers!

    The purpose of this book is to enlighten people on the new economy that is to come. That is consumer spending. Plus, consumer spending simply drives the economy and the middle class are the majority population doing the consumer spending. This is why more money needs to flow in the hands of the middle class through tax breaks, government programs, etc. Also, this will create increased consumer spending revenue for all including the government. Moreover, increased consumer spending through the middle class with a balanced budget will lead to a very prosperous economy.
    The other purpose of this book is to enlighten people on changes that need to be made about investing. Tithing (giving to the poor or the church) is the true way to invest money because it has a guaranteed rate of return. God will repay you for your tithe. Therefore, tithing simply is the way to invest!
    Finally, Allen will locate certain treasures to be found. For instance, the Knights Templar Treasure (located in France) along with Ark of the Covenant (located in Lebanon). But, most importantly, Allen will locate the undiscovered oil well in Israel. This will lead to Israel’s own oil production. Furthermore, Israel mostly relies on foreign oil, however, this will change.
