EIGHT TO ONE is a remake of a YA formerly released as a contemporary. As explained in the foreward of the book, I meant the story to be a historical originally and decided in recent days to return it to that. This novella includes a BONUS short story, "Sam" never before released.


Blurb:

A lifetime. How had the boy who pulled pranks become a man who talked about lifetimes?

-----

Sent south for the summer, eighteen-year-old Iris Willow expects the next three months to be the worst. After all, there can’t be anything interesting about eight brothers raised on a small-town farm. Not when she’s met more sophisticated boys in the city.

Yet from the start, the second eldest, Lucas McGilley, seems different. He’s handsome and funny and kind. He’s dedicated to his family and willing to do what’s necessary to make up for his past mistakes. Most of all, he says he’s in love with her.
   
Love that, as the summer ends, can’t overcome her world of doubts. Or his older brother’s hatred. Or the horrible secret held by his mother.

Bonus Story Blurb:

Samuel McGilley, as the youngest of eight brothers, often finds himself overlooked. He’s always made up for that by speaking his mind. But when an afternoon’s task for a local widow introduces him to pretty little Anna McIntosh, he finds something he’s good at. Listening.

And maybe, with time’s passing, something far more priceless. Love.

Every Sin

I was amazed recently by online comments from "Christians" advocating sins Jesus spoke clearly against. They justified it, talking about the struggle of a friend or relative or church member in that area in the guise of being tolerant. They said, as Christians we're to be non-judgmental and thereby show the love of Christ.

But it's one thing to love everyone and another to accept something that's blatantly wrong. A friend of mine made two statements about this that set me thinking.

She said:

"The struggle is true for some, but the majority aren't struggling at all, they're wallowing. There's a HUGE difference. God knows the heart." (Ps 44:21)

And:

"If everything's fine, then the only thing Jesus really died for is intolerance, right?"

Wow. Jesus died for SINS. Big sins. Small sins. Every sin. And sin will ALWAYS come between a person and Christ. It prevents answers to prayer, hinders physical and mental healing, and opens one's life to the work of Satan.

Don't get me wrong. People DO struggle, but people filling their hearts with Christ, people choosing real repentance, will ALWAYS find salvation and through it peace from whatever they're struggling against, else God is not strong and Jesus died in vain.

For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth (Rm 1:16).




But, like my friend said, most people aren't struggling, they're wallowing. Filled with self-pity and unwilling to change, they seek an excuse for their sin. They want to partake, yet not reap the consequences. Greater, they search for forgiveness from society, instead of God, to make it "okay."

Yet, it isn't okay. Every sin ... including those society has renamed ... was nailed to the cross FOR A REASON. And either the cross and the power of the Resurrection were sufficient to deliver man, or Jesus died solely for intolerance. (Php 3:10)

Because everything else is perfectly acceptable. Right?

I think not. Sin cannot be redefined, and nothing man can do will cleanse him of it. But one dip in the fountain of Jesus's blood, with eyes turned toward God for cleansing and forgiveness, and God will remove EVERY sin and the effects of it. (Is 1:18;Jn 7:18;Rm 1:18;Heb 12:1)

That's the way grace works. (2Co 12:9)

God didn't do things halfway. He didn't hang on the cross for some people and not others. There's no clause in the will amending the purpose of His death, given it grows "out of date". And He isn't less powerful now because ten people on Facebook all agree on it. (Gal 3:28;Col 3:11)

He never changes. NEVER. And never is a really long time. (Mal 3:6)

Blurb:
Michael stopped cold. He caught eyes with Gerritt and reversed. They had to go home, away from this place, back to the warmth and safety of walls built by love, not hate. Hate had never done his dad any good, and hate had led him to this.

-----

Michael O’Fallen, son of the Man with the Golden Voice, has always been told by others that his singing was better than his father’s. Yet so far in his young life, his father hasn’t acknowledged it.

His love life, too, seems to be falling short. Jenny Finnegan, who he’s loved for years, won’t give him the time of day.

Then an offer comes to perform in a series of concerts across the nation, and he knows it’s his time for greatness. But rash actions done in the dead of night have far-reaching consequences that, when seen in the light, might destroy the very man who’s given him the most – his father.

Book 5 in The Florida Irish series by best-selling author, SUZANNE D. WILLIAMS.
