Restitution continues the life of Father Damien in Bergamo, Italy toward the end of World War II as he and his groups take on more challenges – the recovery of stolen treasure, the pursuit of an archenemy and the continuing internal debate between Damien’s strong faith and his equally strong protectiveness towards his community and his sense of justice served by actual participation in violent struggle.

Finally, join Drake in the exciting discoveries of his lineage and stories/legends attributed to ancestors in The History of the Drake Family and the Times They Lived. Starting from Amye Grenville who married John Drake IV in Charlemagne’s time, the long ribbon of family history passes through the book like a beautiful multi-colored line and echoes with family participation in many historical events.
Finally, The Bones of Geronimo is about two border patrol agents of Sierra Vista, Arizona, one of which is a descendant of Geronimo. These two agents experience the thrill of the chase to capture illegal aliens crossing the border at night. They have an outstanding arrest record for undocumented and illegal aliens in their joint portfolio. They make numerous excursions into the desert, and by campfire, Gerald Gerome Geronimo—otherwise called Jerry by his associate—tells stories of his great-grandfather, Chief Geronimo. The flashbacks to the Indian wars between the Mexican Army and the United States Army add flavor at points in the current events. They capture ten undocumented aliens and, by executive order from President Obama, are ordered to release them if they had not committed any other crime but entry into the United States.
