Free and Bargain People & Cultures - Fiction

I haven't seen a thread in which to point out deals, freebies, and resources that fit in this category (whose title I swiped from BN.com), so I've taking the liberty of starting one. However, if any MR mods believe there's already an appropriate thread for such titles, then please redirect these posts.

As with the other threads in the "Deals, Freebies, and Resources (No Self-Promotion) forum: please don't post any self-published books*, and please do a search before posting to avoid duplicates.

In case no retailer is specifically mentioned in a post, it is safe to assume it's for Amazon US.

Be aware that many freebies are only free for a day, so grab them fast!


*Unless you have read them yourself, think they are excellent, and you're not connected to the author in any way.

HELP! I should have titled this new thread "Free and Bargain People & Cultures - Fiction", and don't know how to correct the thread title. I'd be grateful if someone would either change it for me or (teach me to fish and) tell me how to do so. (I've reported this post.)

Creatures Here Below [Kindle Edition] by O.H. Bennett

Book Description
Publication Date: November 8, 2011

This powerful new novel by O. H. Bennett tells the story of a makeshift family struggling to stay together as life wears away at their bonds of blood and love. At the center of the family is Gail Neighbors, the hardworking single mother of two sons, Mason and Tyler. Mason, the older, grew up without knowing his father, a feckless gambler and womanizer. Tyler, the younger, sings in the church choir and enjoys a close relationship with his father, Dan, who left Gail a few years before still spends plenty of time at the house. To make ends meet, Gail has taken in two boarders: Annie, an elderly woman with a diminishing grip on reality, and Jackie, the 20-year-old single mother of baby Cole, who can't fully accept her overwhelming new responsibilities. Creatures Here Below renders with tremendous richness and care the realities of a black teenaged male whose life is taking a turn toward the worse.

That's how you get titles fixed. Unfortunately for the rank and file MobileRead member, the only way to get a thread title changed is to do just what you did: report and request. The software doesn't allow users to change these things themselves. The good news is that we don't mind such requests in the least.

Talented, handsome, and personable, Dewayne Jobe rose from humble beginnings in rural Mississippi to play college football in Southern California and beyond. One of the best wide receivers in college ball, Dewayne is assured a promising career in professional football and easily finds success both on and off the field. Not only is he a great player, he's got the wife, the kids, and the pristine white picket fence to boot.

But catastrophe looms right around the corner and ultimately strikes with a crushing vengeance. Will Dewayne's faith and character stand the test of such tragedy? Or will he lose everything--including the love of his life? This modern retelling of the story of Job will capture readers with the age-old question of why bad things happen to good people--and how good people can survive.

I'm sorry, but I have to ask - if this is People and Cultures, why are both posts so far faith-based Christian materials? We already have a Christian Interest thread on here.

The key phrase is "so far". I started this thread because in the past I've often seen books by or about diverse peoples that did not fit into preexisting categories, so I didn't post them. Some such books, like those above, could either be posted in this thread or into the faith-based Christian thread, but if you'll take note you'll see: no else posted them in that thread or anywhere else in Mobileread. Some other such books by our about diverse peoples do not fit into the faith-based Christian thread, or any other preexisting Mobileread thread, but this thread can accommodate them.

This thread may develop into an "if we build it, they will come" thread, or it may not. Time will tell.

Is there a non-faith-based Christian genre?

Doubtful. I used the phrase "faith-based Christian" merely to mirror pstjmack's use of it, when responding to his post. The distinction I was making was: fiction about diverse peoples and cultures -v- faith-based fiction.
