Finnegan Begins Again
by Col. Brian Osterndorf, US Army (Ret.)
Lieutenant Colonel Finnegan has served in the army for twenty-four years. It’s been a remarkably unspectacular career. But now he’s transitioning out, and for once in his life, he faces a decision more important than regular vs. light beer. With no readily marketable skills, he has a series of misadventures and ends up in . . . the Army, with a big “A”—the unwieldy leviathan that recruits, trains, and supplies the little “a” army. And it’s not a great fit. In Finnegan Begins Again, you’ll meet Mamzelle Reynard, the barbecue queen of the South and the owner of Tiger Corp, a new government contractor; COL Harvey, the Army’s innovative and risk-taking program manager; “Sad Sack” Sanders, the former Army Acquisition Corps contract specialist; and a memorable collection of military veterans that save the day on a different type of battlefield.66%194
Bird’s Eye View
by Jan Capps
When Jan moves to Guatemala with her young daughter to run a medical clinic on the heels of her divorce, she knows the experience will be difficult and life-changing. But she doesn’t anticipate all the ways she will change. To make sense of her professional, personal, and parenting turmoil in a country with plenty of its own turmoil, Jan finds herself adopting a Maya worldview that weaves together concepts of duality (there can be no light without dark, no joy without pain), harmony with nature, and the importance of connecting to the past to understand one’s present self. Awash with elements of Maya mythology, history, and culture and innumerable revelations of the compassion, intelligence, and resilience of the Guatemalan people, Bird’s-Eye View is a coming-of-middle-age story that shows how viewing life through the prism of a different set of myths can help an individual understand the familiar tales they have unwittingly followed.45%218
