Now T.J. and Moondance have been adopted, and Mop has to find a family before the orphanage closes and “leftover” kids are sent away. Mop hopes that if she can play catcher for the Elks, the Little League baseball team that her friends have joined, the coach will be so impressed that he and his wife will adopt her.

A lone building on a small island off Ireland's Donegal coast, St Ernan's is politely known as a "retirement home" for priests. The exiled residents are guilty of such serious offenses as entrepreneurship, criticizing the church, or getting too friendly with the flock. But things take a turn when Fr Matthew McKaye is found dead in the kitchen, a pot of potatoes boiling on the range. Has one of these isolated outcasts committed murder? Starrett soon discovers that ten clergy alone on an island can concoct a great deal of mischief, but what could the young priest have done to get himself murdered? Long-buried grievances are awakened by the ghosts of Starrett's seminarian past, and though Starrett excels at untangling facts from speculation, this investigation is going to require all the procedural discipline he can muster. "Charles makes Starrett's third case leisurely, literate, ingenious. . . and as old-fashioned as the idea that priests are pillars of private morality."-Kirkus Reviews. "In Irish author Charles's atmospheric third Inspector Starrett mystery, Starrett investigates a murder at a home for wayward Catholic priests. They soon find that there are plenty of secrets the inhabitants and surrounding townsfolk would like to keep well buried."--Publisher's Weekly "The reader of St Ernan's Blues will learn a lot about the priests at St Ernan's and a lot about human nature."--Irish American News

Do you really feel the same way everyday? Do you think you are intended to? Women are tied to the moon not only biologically (through their monthly menses), but also on deep inner planes. The moon moves from sign to sign every month, and takes all women along for a virtual journey that's experienced through vivid mood changes. Each sign is endowed with character and represents one of the twelve Divine archetypes. These come to life as the moon awakens them in due succession during the course of her recurrent monthly passages. Recognizing how these themes embedded into time move you will deepen your understanding of who you are. And since the moon's cycles can be plotted, you gain a powerful strategy for wisely utilizing your place(s) in time. Moon Dance is designed for those with astrological knowledge, as well as those ready to learn to respond to the rhythms of time as naturally felt and experienced on the inside.

“Fight for us or get shot!” It wasn’t a threat Bally Buck made to West Cawinne but a grim prophecy. Two six-gun experts couldn’t graze the same range—not when one was Robideau, a half-breed specialist in treachery, and the other was Cawinne, the most ruthless lawman in the Southwest. But Cawinne was tired of fighting, tired of his bloody reputation. He had a ranch and a girl and he wanted peace. Yet if he turned his back on the trouble in Moon Dance, he’d get a bullet in it. So he tied down his holsters and tramped down the dusty street to meet a vicious outlaw who’d never been beaten on the draw. A whole town held its breath. And a whole town’s life hung on the bullet-spattered outcome!
