The
Emperor’s Seal
Touching
Time Book 1
by
Amanda Roberts
Genre:
Paranormal Fantasy Mystery
 
Peking,
1902

 

 

The
Emperor’s Seal – the divine symbol of the Emperor on earth – is
missing. The Empress will do whatever it takes to get it
back.

 

 

Jiayi
has a gift – she can travel through time just by touching
historical artifacts. More than anything, she wants to escape the
clutches of the Empress and run away to a foreign land. Finding the
Emperor’s Seal could be her only chance at freedom, but is she
willing to risk the wrath of the Empress?

 

 

Historian
and wannabe archaeologist Zhihao has no love for the Empress or the
Qing Dynasty, but when the Empress orders him to find the Emperor’s
Seal in exchange for funding China’s first history museum, he
cannot refuse. It is only after he accepts the assignment that he
realizes the key to finding the seal lies in the hands of a palace
slave.

 

 

Civil
unrest and encroaching foreign powers threaten Jiayi and Zhihao’s
mission and lives as they hunt for The Emperor’s Seal.

Drafted as a doughboy in the Meuse-Argonne Campaign

Monday, November 13th, 2017

 

Joshua Henry Bates, a young teacher of a country school, wonders if there will be more to his life. Yes, there are summers away from the farm, attending the University of Utah, dancing at Saltair, watching pictures shows, and eating ice cream on bone dry days. In his journal he questions his future. He finds a young woman to love, but she is an ever-mutating mystery. His job seems to be a dead-end. His parents need his help more all the time. Josh tries to change his life: cooling the relationship with his girlfriend, teaching in a new school, and registering for service in the American Expeditionary Forces. Still, Joshua is filled with self-doubt. Will Josh marry the girl? Will he find a dazzling life mission? Will he be victorious in war? Each chapter contains one to thirty primary sources from the life of this young man drafted as a doughboy in the Meuse-Argonne Campaign.
 Praise for the book:

If you have ever searched for your own history, or a way to bring

history to life, this book is a masterpiece.”
Kelly Milner Halls, author of Saving the Baghdad Zoo

Joan Enders lives in Washington State with her husband Jerry, and loves the Pacific Northwest! For 28 years she taught literature and research skills in school libraries to middle and high school students, and advocated for full-time school librarians in every school. She
was a recipient of the American Library Association’s Frances Henne Award for library leadership. 
 
She loved her jobs, often to distraction. Once Joan stayed
so late at the school library that the custodians waxed the floors, unaware that she was still upstairs. She crept out the least sticky exit. Joan now teaches librarians on webinars. When not teaching she administers the local Family History Center for FamilySearch International. She enjoys peeling back the research onion for students and adults. That was the motivation for her
first book, which replicates her most popular inquiry lesson for U.S. History students and teachers. Joan speaks in her community, for professional organizations and at genealogy conferences.

Snippet  1.  
 
Passing the alley, Josie heard a soft meow. She stopped,
listened, but hearing nothing, she continued on.
Entering
the lobby, she was greeted with a smile. As she started to sign in, the smile
quickly turned to a frown, then a sneeze. That sneeze was quickly followed by
another three.
“Pardon,”
the clerk said, pulling a handkerchief from his pocket and wiping his nose.
“How may I help you?” He wheezed, another sneeze taking hold of him.
“I
would like a room,” Josie replied, putting her medical bag on the counter.
“Perhaps I can help you. How long have you been sneezing? Do you feel congested?”
“I’m
not sick,” the man smiled as he sneezed again, “just allergic to cats.”
Looking
around, Josie saw nothing and was preparing to say as much when a soft “meow”
sounded from under her skirt.
Pulling
up the hem, Josie bent down to see a pair of gold eyes look at her from a coat
of dark gray. “How did you get there?” Josie asked. Lifting the small creature
up, she moved to the door. The kitten clung to her shoulder, headbutting her
chin, loud purrs sounding in her ear.
“Well
I’ll be,” the clerk exclaimed, followed by a series of sneezes. “Sure is a cute
one,” he continued when the sneezes abated once again. “No one’s been able to
get that close to it.”
“You
know this because…?” Josie asked.
