The Days of Elijah

https://www.amazon.com/Days-Elijah-John-Noble-ebook/dp/B07H7...
Elijah’s friends are dead, and without a miracle, he’s next. Elijah is a young prophet studying the Torah, when the soldiers of Queen Jezebel burn his school and massacre his teachers. He escapes, barely, but finds himself on the run and hunted as Queen Jezebel attempts to stamp out the worship of the Hebrew God in Israel and replace it with the worship of Ba’al.As the queen’s soldiers close in on him, Elijah discovers a little known promise in the Scroll of Deuteronomy and prays for something impossible – that God would turn the skies to bronze and stop the rain on the kingdom that has abandoned Him. And God says yes. As drought and famine grip the cloudless land of Israel, God tells Elijah to hide and sends him to the land of Tyre, to a widow and her son who are on the edge of starvation. In Tyre Elijah finds a darkness at the heart of the city, a darkness that threatens to consume Israel next. But even if he survives, will Israel listen to his warning?This is a re-imagining of the story of Elijah from the Bible.

I Was a Slave in Russia: An American Tells His Story

https://www.amazon.com/Was-Slave-Russia-American-Tells-ebook...
I Was a Slave in Russia, first published in the U.S. in 1960, is American author John Noble's vivid, realistic account of his 10-year imprisonment by the Soviets following World War II. What follows is a record of grossly inhumane treatment including beatings, lack of food and warm clothing, and brutal working conditions, compounded by the fact that he was never informed of his supposed 'crime' against the all-powerful Soviet state. The author was transported in cramped prisoner trains from camp to camp in Germany and Russia before being sent to work in the dangerous coal mines of Vorkuta camp, located in the frigid tundra region north of the Arctic Circle. Here the author toiled for a number of years, before his eventual release to the West. I Was a Slave in Russia remains a classic indictment of the failed communist system of Soviet-era Russia, and John Noble lectured on his experiences for the remainder of his life (he also wrote a companion volume entitled I Found God in Soviet Russia). Noble died on November 10, 2007. Included are diagrams of four camps where the author was confined, including the former Buchenwald concentration camp, plus a map of his journey from Germany to far northern Russia.

The Acts of King Arthur and His Noble Knights: (Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition)

https://www.amazon.com/Acts-King-Arthur-Noble-Knights-ebook/...
Steinbeck's only work of fantasy literature—in a  deluxe edition with a foreword by Christopher Paolini, New York Times bestselling author of Eragon, Eldest and Brisingr   Malory’s Le Morte d’Arthur was the first book that John Steinbeck truly enjoyed reading as a child. Fascinated by Arthurian tales of adventure, knighthood, honor and friendship, in addition to the challenging nuances of the original Anglo-Saxon language, Steinbeck set out to render these stories faithfully and with keen animation for a modern audience. Here then is Steinbeck’s modernization of the adventure of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table, featuring the icons of Arthurian legend—including King Arthur, Merlin, Morgan le Fay, the incomparable Queen Guinevere, and Arthur's purest knight, Sir Lancelot of the Lake.   These enduring tales of loyalty and betrayal in the time of Camelot flicker with the wonder and magic of an era past but not forgotten. Steinbeck's retelling will capture the attention and imagination of legions of Steinbeck fans, including those who love Arthurian romances, as well as countless readers of science fiction and fantasy literature.   This edition features a new foreword by Christopher Paolini, author of the number-one New York Times bestselling novels Eragon, Eldest, and Brisingr. It also includes the letters John Steinbeck wrote to his literary agent, Elizabeth Otis, and to Chase Horton, the original editor of this volume.For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,700 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines.

A Great and Noble Scheme: The Tragic Story of the Expulsion of the French Acadians from Their American Homeland

https://www.amazon.com/Great-Noble-Scheme-Expulsion-Acadians...
"Altogether superb; a worthy memorial to the victims of two and a half centuries past."--Kirkus Reviews, starred reviewIn 1755, New England troops embarked on a "great and noble scheme" to expel 18,000 French-speaking Acadians ("the neutral French") from Nova Scotia, killing thousands, separating innumerable families, and driving many into forests where they waged a desperate guerrilla resistance. The right of neutrality; to live in peace from the imperial wars waged between France and England; had been one of the founding values of Acadia; its settlers traded and intermarried freely with native Mikmaq Indians and English Protestants alike. But the Acadians' refusal to swear unconditional allegiance to the British Crown in the mid-eighteenth century gave New Englanders, who had long coveted Nova Scotia's fertile farmland, pretense enough to launch a campaign of ethnic cleansing on a massive scale. John Mack Faragher draws on original research to weave 150 years of history into a gripping narrative of both the civilization of Acadia and the British plot to destroy it.

Noble Outlaw, The (A Crowner John Mystery Book 11)

https://www.amazon.com/Noble-Outlaw-Crowner-John-Mystery-ebo...
Exeter, 1195. During renovations at the new school in Smythen Street, funded by Crowner John's brother-in-law Richard de Revelle, a semi-skeletalized body is found in the loft of an outhouse. The coroner is called in to investigate. When the dead man is identified as the missing treasurer of the guild of Cordwainers, de Revelle immediately puts the blame on a young outlaw—a Cornish knight named Nicholas de Arundell—whose Devon manor de Revelle had illegally appropriated while Arundell was away at the Crusades. The ex-sheriff claims the body was dumped there to discredit his new school. The investigation takes on greater urgency when another guild-master is found dead on the road from Tavistock to Exeter. Is Nicholas de Arundell, the "noble outlaw," really responsible? Or could there be another culprit entirely?

Queen of Scots: The True Life of Mary Stuart

https://www.amazon.com/Queen-Scots-True-Life-Stuart-ebook/dp...
This Whitbread Award–winning biography and basis for the film Mary Queen of Scots starring Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie “reads like Shakespearean drama” (The Atlanta Journal-Constitution).   “A triumph . . . A masterpiece full of fire and tragedy.” —Amanda Foreman, author of Georgiana   In the first full-scale biography of Mary Stuart in more than thirty years, John Guy creates an intimate and absorbing portrait of one of history’s greatest women, depicting her world and her place in the sweep of history with stunning immediacy. Bringing together all surviving documents and uncovering a trove of new sources for the first time, Guy dispels the popular image of Mary Queen of Scots as a romantic leading lady—achieving her ends through feminine wiles—and establishes her as the intellectual and political equal of Elizabeth I.   Through Guy’s pioneering research and superbly readable prose, we come to see Mary as a skillful diplomat, maneuvering ingeniously among a dizzying array of factions that sought to control or dethrone her. Queen of Scots is an enthralling, myth-shattering look at a complex woman and ruler and her time.   “The definitive biography . . . Gripping . . . A pure pleasure to read.” —The Washington Post Book World   “Reads like Shakespearean drama, with all the delicious plotting and fresh writing to go with it.” —The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
