To understand a generation, we must walk their path--feel the fierce uncertainty and incredible love of yesterday. "KALEIDOSCOPE OF BLUE" describes a time when this nation's young seemed to be lying their souls naked before the Almighty--bonding, searching--separately, and yet somehow together--the "Flower Child" and the "Soldier"--the "Activist" and the "Hippie". America was down on her knees, begging, pleading for inner peace, and on her hands was the stain of drugs and blood--in her heart, the pain. It was a lot for one generation to bear, but in some strange way it bonded them together.
Amy's past unravels upon the pages as she clings to life. Young love is often bittersweet and can leave scars that last a lifetime. However, life's lessons are never where you expect them. She was raised in the heartland where one can still hear the sound of rustling cornfields on an autumn night and the lone whistle of a train as it rolls along the rails. Her journey continues when she finds herself in Chicago in the 60's. Here she found an unfamiliar world, where medical professionals from many countries had come to learn and to heal, however, they were surrounded with unrest.
Smoke filled the air as they hurried down the darkened street towards the campus fraternity houses. They would live their lives today for tomorrow seemed too uncertain. Bryan was an ambitious student of law who was determined to change the world. She was the small town girl that won his heart. But there were secrets that haunted her--secrets that she alone would face in the dark of night. And although life at times distracted her, it was love that kept her focused--she alone would walk her path.
This one's for you, Bill--
Gwendolyn Pierce has a secret. A big secret.
No one knows that the gourd artist is really the missing wine heiress who ran away fourteen years before. And that's the way Gwen likes it. No paparazzi recording her every mistake, no stern family disapproving of her life. She has her art studio in Laurel Heights and lives in peaceful bliss.
Until she meets Rick Clancy.
The last person she should get involved with is a private investigator who finds her as suspicious as he does sexy. Only she can't help herself, and she can't help wondering if she can trust him with her secrets—and her heart.

Can the secrets of one woman's past change another woman's future?
Cate Albion is a gifted young artist at a crossroads in her life. Looking to escape New York for the summer, she takes a job in her aunt's London auction house and is soon sent on assignment to the English countryside to value the contents of Endsleigh House, the once gracious but now crumbling estate of a former Jazz Age socialite. There, hidden in the back of a dusty bookshelf, Cate discovers an old shoebox, and inside, a peculiar assortment of objects, including an exquisite pair of 1930s dancing shoes; a faded photograph of a handsome young sailor, and a rare Tiffany pearl and emerald bracelet.
Intrigued, Cate sets out to learn more about the box and its contents, and becomes immersed in the mystery of its owner, Diana “Baby” Blythe, the younger of the infamous, glamorous Blythe sisters. Bright, beautiful, and reckless, Baby was the most famous debutante of her generation . . . until she suddenly disappeared entirely from view.
As a shocking tale of love and betrayal begins to unravel, Cate finds herself being drawn deeper into Baby's tragic life story—one that will force Cate to confront some dark truths about her own choices.
Melusi was the only son of Mlungisi and Nondumiso Zondo, a son they got in their 40s, and he was very close to their hearts.

The Zondos were residing in the Kwa-Zulu Natal province in a small village called Nongowa in Zululand under Chief Govozile and Queen Makhosi Nkabinde. The royal family was blessed with only one child, a daughter Princess Nobuhle.
The biologically unrelated Nkabinde and Zondo family found themselves relating in a rather surprising way. See how the blood connected the two families, as we turn into the previous page to witness what happened 'Before The Bridge'.
