And when Miriam de Moor—a police investigator who suspects Hennequin played a role in her brother’s sudden death six months earlier—unearths horrifying secrets about Hennequin’s past, the destinies of the three women become chillingly linked and will come to a head in a thrilling, unforgettable climax.

Evolving Brains, Emerging Gods by E. Fuller Torrey

Enter to win one of ten signed hardcover copies.

The book shows how the gods, and then formal religions, are virtually inevitable outcomes of the cognitive evolution of the human brain. It integrates recent findings on brain function with archeological, anthropological, child development, neuropsychology, and animal behavior studies to offer answers to questions such as the following:

• Where and when did the first gods appear, and why did they appear when they did?

• Why is it very unlikely that Neanderthals had gods?

• Why were most of the major religions organized in the brief “Axial Age” between 800 and 200 BCE?

A reviewer for the journal Religion (2018, 48: 500) said: “This is the book I have been waiting for…I have no doubt that it will set the standard in the field for at least a decade or more.”
Publishers Weekly added: “Presented in a manner that is accessible to nonscientists […] (an) insightful, thought-provoking work.”

Professor Robert Sapolsky of Stanford University wrote: “A unique scholarly approach to the subject that is sure to be influential and highly regarded.”

National History Book Services said: “Evolving Brains, Emerging Gods makes a very convincing argument. And the fact that the book avoids polarizing the topic with unnecessary anti-religious sentiment will hopefully see many more people read it.”

Now available in paperback.

Blue Hollow Falls may be a small Blue Ridge Mountain town, but it’s big on love—and second chances . . .

When former barrel racer Cheyenne McCafferty left the circuit, she left her past behind too. Now, as part owner of Lavender Blue farm, she’s content rescuing and rehabbing horses, and growing a new business. She’s only got one regret: letting go of Wyatt Reed. When he professed his love, she was too young and foolish to know her heart. After that he disappeared. But when his beloved horse turns up on the auction block, Chey makes a bid and wins more than she bargained for . . .

Chey believed she was ready to face Wyatt again, to explain herself. But seeing the man he’s become, she’s unsure. Gone is the quiet, gentle boy she knew. In his place is a rugged, confident adventurer who’s seen the world. Yet the longer Wyatt sticks around, the clearer it is that the feelings of their youth aren’t so easily dismissed now that they’re adults. In fact, the timing may be just right to make the dreams they’ve shared under a firefly moon come true . . .
