Lester Moore and Ekateria Priede spent a romantic night in a Gotenburg Hotel. A quick departure the next morning kept them and Maxim protected. The family jewels, Maxim is indeed precious.

While standing alone on a dark, cobbled street somewhere in central Europe, a traveler may wonder who could be casting that intriguing silhouette upon the window up above.

Such tempting tidbits constantly tease the reader’s appetite and tantalize the imagination.
I invite you to go ahead, take that DNA test, open the book and begin turning pages.

~I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review~

I really wish I could give it more than 5 stars.

What happens when you take a DNA test? This book explores a few stories about family members on the family tree. Each narrative contain elements of fact, fantasy, and fiction.

If you haven't read this author before, let me just say you need to. He writes in a style that no other author I've ever read does. He is unique in the way that he can create the era he is writing about with his word choice and descriptions. This book was the perfect showcase for that since it was written in the voice of different characters from different places and eras. He nails it down to the smallest details, whether it is the cocktail they are drinking, the car they are driving, or the sla ...more
Fables, Foibles and Follies is collected stories from family members, friends and other relations of Edward Hackemer.

I truly loved reading this collection. I especially enjoyed the one entitled "An Irish Odyssey". This is an account of Aine Faergahl and her emigration to the United States. She was an indentured servant when she arrived. After working the amount of years needed, she was off to find out whatever happened to her brother Donal who had come over many years earlier to work on a ship.
