Life in the village of Blackwood, Michigan, is one defined by natural beauty, regionalism, and a strong sense of what it means to be Welsh. In this collection of intertwined short stories and novellas, the fictional residents of this beautiful region come to life. Travel from the 1920s to the near future as these stories explore themes of survival and community pride. In 1922, the Dee family struggles to rise out of poverty and see the dream of a house built of stone come to life in the opening story, “A House of Stone Is Forever, Part One.” To them, a stone house is more than simple shelter; it is a promise of continued survival in a house that is built to endure all the storms they may face over the years. When the house is completed, the family buries a treasure—an archive to ensure that their story is known by future generations. As the years pass, the Blackwood community members struggle to adjust to the social and cultural changes that inevitably find their way into their idyllic community. And as the villagers attempt to exert increasing control over the environment, they may not be ready to pay the price they’ll be forced to pay. Presenting a series of coming-of-age stories with environmental implications, A House of Stone Is Forever follows one family’s hopes and dreams for immortality.

“Wonderful . . . One of the finest memoirs I’ve read.” — Philip Caputo, Washington Post In the summer of 2006, racing through Lebanon to report on the Israeli invasion, Anthony Shadid found himself in his family’s ancestral hometown of Marjayoun. There, he discovered his great-grandfather’s once magnificent estate in near ruins, devastated by war. One year later, Shadid returned to Marjayoun, not to chronicle the violence, but to rebuild in its wake. So begins the story of a battle-scarred home and a journalist’s wounded spirit, and of how reconstructing the one came to fortify the other. In this bittersweet and resonant memoir, Shadid creates a mosaic of past and present, tracing the house’s renewal alongside the history of his family’s flight from Lebanon and resettlement in America around the turn of the twentieth century. In the process, he memorializes a lost world and provides profound insights into a shifting Middle East. This paperback edition includes an afterword by the journalist Nada Bakri, Anthony Shadid’s wife, reflecting on his legacy. “A poignant dedication to family, to home, and to history . . . Breathtaking.” — San Francisco Chronicle “Entertaining, informative, and deeply moving . . . House of Stone will stand a long time, for those fortunate enough to read it.” — Telegraph (London)

Pulsing with wit, seduction, and dark humor, House of Stone is a masterful debut that explores the creative—and often destructive—act of history-making. In the chronic turmoil of modern Zimbabwe, Abednego and Agnes Mlambo’s teenage son, Bukhosi, has gone missing, and the Mlambos fear the worst. Their enigmatic lodger, Zamani, seems to be their last, best hope for finding him. Since Bukhosi’s disappearance, Zamani has been preternaturally helpful: hanging missing posters in downtown Bulawayo, handing out fliers to passersby, and joining in family prayer vigils with the flamboyant Reverend Pastor from Agnes’s Blessed Anointings church. It’s almost like Zamani is part of the family… But almost isn’t nearly enough for Zamani. He ingratiates himself with Agnes and feeds alcoholic Abednego’s addiction, desperate to extract their life stories and steep himself in borrowed family history, as keenly aware as any colonialist or power-mad despot that the one who controls the narrative inherits the future. As Abednego wrestles with the ghosts of his past and Agnes seeks solace in a deep-rooted love, their histories converge and each must confront the past to find their place in a new Zimbabwe. Pulsing with wit, seduction, and dark humor, House of Stone is a sweeping epic that spans the fall of Rhodesia through Zimbabwe’s turbulent beginnings, exploring the persistence of the oppressed in a young nation seeking an identity, but built on forgetting.

HOUSE OF STONE is a 'standalone' sequel to BISHOP STREET- that takes the past and present, and it is interwoven into another powerful story. "The test of life is not meant to break you, but to make you stronger..." Four powerful childhood friendships become twisted with lies and deceit after they leave Bishop Street Orphanage. Twenty years later, the four orphans are back together. Maggie is a best-selling author that lives in Los Angeles. Elizabeth, is a farmer's wife with five children. They live in North Bend, North Dakota. Randolph the billionaire, is a wandering nomad who has never put down roots. Lucy is finally clean and sober, and raising her daughter, after twenty years of living on the streets. Challenging themselves to let go of the past, and still fused together by the immeasurable power of friendship, they will never let anything get in their way again. New obstacles become more complicated and unpredictable then they could ever imagine. Then suddenly, their lives will change forever, when Maggie is visiting an orphanage in Honduras and a major earthquake hits... Thousands of lives are lost, Maggie is missing, and their worst fears will test their strength of survival, once again! "Author Rene D. Schultz has done it once again! She has created a story so rich with love, loss, friendship and hope that it feels like I am a part of the story." Stephenee Carsten-reviewer "You can read it as a standalone book, or I would tell you to read Bishop Street where the story begins." AJ Book review club Rene Schultz is a master storyteller. With a compassionate touch, Ms. Schultz also weaves in social issues and their aftermath, including homelessness, addiction, and abandoned children. Jada Ryker This author brings out emotions in me that aren't easily displayed. There were times when I was biting my nails; times when I was crying buckets; and times when I was scared. Each character has now got a place in my heart, as this lovely unique author, Rene D. Schultz. Sue Ward-2-Friends / UK reviewer

A modern knight, a noble quest, and a magical sword. What could go wrong? Welcome to the City, where gods run nightclubs, goblins hire out as mercs, sorcerers work their magic, the Fae hold court over every neighborhood...and humanity is blissfully ignorant of it all. For minor Fae noble Richard Stone, life is going well. He has a decent fiefdom (okay, it's a slum), a budding acting career (okay, so it's porn), and one of only five magical swords in the City. An arranged marriage is barely a blip on his worry meter--until his family blade loses its magic. The shame of it puts his noble standing in jeopardy. To regain his status, Richard needs help. Fortunately, his new bride is a sidhe knight and his servant Simaron has, er, his back. Together they embark on a quest to find the demon who slew his father, investigate a conspiracy that goes to the highest echelons of Fae nobility, and discover a secret family legacy that could ruin his House. All while keeping up appearances to a society that demands perfection. And they say a noble's life is easy... Warning: This book contains explicit gay sex, not-so-explicit gay sex, explicitly implied gay sex, routine breaking of the fourth wall, occasional bouts of Pearl Jam fanboy-ism, and plot. Side effects include confusion and headaches, and are best avoided by reading the pages therein in numerical order.

"Evocative and beautifully written, House of Stone...should be read by anyone who wishes to understand the agonies and hopes of the Middle East." — Kai Bird, Pulitzer Prize—winning historian and author of Crossing Mandelbaum Gate "In rebuilding his family home in southern Lebanon, Shadid commits an extraordinarily generous act of restoration for his wounded land, and for us all." — Annia Ciezadlo, author of Day of Honey In spring 2011, Anthony Shadid was one of four New York Times reporters captured in Libya, cuffed and beaten, as that country was seized by revolution. When he was freed, he went home. Not to Boston or Beirut—where he lives— or to Oklahoma City, where his Lebanese-American family had settled and where he was raised. Instead, he returned to his great-grandfather's estate, a house that, over three years earlier, Shadid had begun to rebuild. House of Stone is the story of a battle-scarred home and a war correspondent's...

Ein amerikanischer Expat betritt die öffentlichen Toiletten des Kulturpalasts von Sofia, Bulgarien. Dort unten, wo niemand einfach so hingeht, trifft er Mitko, der Charisma ausstrahlt und Gefahr. Der Amerikaner bezahlt Mitko für Sex und trifft ihn danach immer wieder, gefangen in seinem Begehren und in einer Beziehung, in der Zärtlichkeit umzuschlagen droht in Gewalt. Und während er sich seiner komplizierten Vergangenheit stellen muss, kann er weder seinem Verlangen entkommen noch den Privilegien als Ausländer, die ihn von Mitko trennen. "Was zu dir gehört" ist ein tiefberührender Roman über die Macht von Scham und Sehnsucht. Und über eine Liebe entgegen jeder Wahrscheinlichkeit.
