For nearly a century, Kellogg, Idaho, was home to America’s richest silver mine, Sunshine Mine. Mining there, as everywhere, was not an easy life, but regardless of the risk, there was something about being underground, the lure of hitting a deep vein of silver. The promise of good money and the intense bonds of friendship brought men back year after year. Mining is about being a man and a fighter in a job where tomorrow always brings the hope of a big score.
In The Deep Dark, Gregg Olsen looks beyond the intensely suspenseful story of the fire and rescue to the wounded heart of Kellogg, a quintessential company town that has never recovered from its loss. A vivid and haunting chapter in the history of working-class America, this is one of the great rescue stories of the twentieth century. Buy the book for $1.99 today. Audiobook: $3.99.

Eve Haas is the daughter of a German Jewish family that took refuge in London after Hitler came to power. Following a terrifying air raid in the blitz, her father revealed the family secret, that her great-great grandmother Emilie was married to a Prussian prince. He then showed her the treasured leather-bound notebook inscribed to Emilie by the prince. Later in life, when Eve was married and inherited the diary, she became obsessed with proving this birthright.
The Secrets of the Notebook tells how she follows the clues, from experts on European royalty in London to archives in West Germany and then, under threat of being arrested as a spy by the Communist regime, to an archive in East Germany that had never before opened its doors to the West. What she unearths is a love story set against the upheaval of the Napoleonic wars and the anti-Semitism of the Prussian court, and a ruse that both protected Emilie’s daughter and probably condemned her granddaughter—Eve’s beloved grandmother, Anna—to death in the Nazi camps.

Before WWI, little provision was made for the burial of the war dead. Soldiers were often unceremoniously dumped in a mass grave; officers shipped home for burial.
The great cemeteries of WWI came about as a result of the efforts of one inspired visionary. In 1914, Fabian Ware joined the Red Cross, working on the frontline in France. Horrified by the hasty burials, he recorded the identity and position of the graves. His work was officially recognised, with a Graves Registration Commission being set up. As reports of their work became public, the Commission was flooded with letters from grieving relatives around the world.

As the princess requested, Spoto waited twenty-five years after her death to write this biography.

Lady Barbara Chamberlain has the face of an angel, the polish of London’s most elite drawing rooms and, behind it all, the cunning of a cat. Orphaned at a young age, she and her brother, Charles, have made a living off the gullibility of rich strangers. But Charles’s scheming has landed him in the torturous confines of a Bermuda prison, and Barbara desperately needs funds to help him escape.
Her plan had seemed simple enough: Convince Lieutenant Zachariah Morgan to present her to his mother, then produce documents to support the claim to a portion of Louise Morgan’s vast fortune in Oklahoma Territory. After all her years of playing the role of seductress, however, Barbara is now caught in her own snare. The devilishly handsome Zach confounds her with his kisses and kindness. Even more confusing, he seems willing to put aside all his doubts, although he knows that she has lied to him with every breath.
But their reckless passion will find its own perils in this wild land. And as treachery and unseen danger play out, Barbara will be forced to risk all that she holds dear—including her own untamed heart.
