THE L.I.E. - IndieReader

THE L.I.E. is an illustrated book for young adults about an emotionally withdrawn, brilliant woman who, through her passion for science, ultimately is befriended and transforms into her town’s most beloved and celebrated citizen.


An honest, sometimes raw, account of a young girl’s first years as a street kid that is both heartbreaking and life-affirming – A SINGLE DESPERATE PRAYER makes readers believe that faith can take you far.

The Hidden Life of Trees, by Peter Wohlleben | Spiral Nature Magazine

Nature is a temple to many of us, and we may look at a stand of trees as nature’s cathedral, or a single tree as a much-beloved confidant or teacher. Our connection is spiritual and emotional, and we understand them intuitively.

Magical Destinations of the Northeast, by Natalie Zaman | Spiral Nature Magazine

As I opened the book, I soon knew that reading it would be delightfully whimsical as well as informational, current as well as historical. Pictures and graphics as well as words convey information (there’s one absolutely adorable feature on the bottom of every page — I won’t spoil the surprise by revealing it here). Addresses, phone numbers, and websites are included for every entry, so you can research before you go or spend your days armchair travelling.
