Finding Home: How Americans Prevail is an inspiring book by journalist Sally Ooms about people who are searching for, or trying to keep, a home, and about people who have come off their center and have righted themselves. These are everyday Americans… vets and foster kids, laid-off workers and single moms, retirees and small business owners… all who have faced down the problems society throws at them to not just cope, but thrive. Ooms has been a print journalist for 30 years, appearing in a myriad of publications as a reporter, correspondent, and editor, receiving awards for her editorial writing, spot news, features, and investigative reporting.

New York Times and #1 internationally bestselling author Steve Berry returns with The King’s Deception, another Cotton Malone thrill ride, which takes readers to the heart of England, uncovering a secret that threatens to rock Great Britain to it’s royal foundations. “As smart as it is chilling, as bold as it is brash, Berry’s latest is literary entertainment of the highest order further cementing his status as heir to the throne of Ludlum.” (Providence Journal) With 15 million books in print in 40 languages in 51 countries, along with hosting writer’s workshops all around the country while joining his wife in an effort to save a myriad of endangered historic treasures, you will have a hard time finding a harding worker author than Steve Berry!
