Book Description

What does a woman- a rural housewife and mother- do when she learns, while still grieving the death of her husband, that he had been unfaithful for fully half of their twenty year marriage? Worse yet, his affair was with a woman as seemingly opposite to the protagonist as any two people could be.

Sargent Mountain explores the wounds of betrayal, the painful process of healing, and the many meanings of love.

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful story May 30, 2013
By Janet S
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Sargent Mountain is a powerful story of loss, love, betrayal, acceptance and joy, and you never know which emotion is coming next. The author always keeps you guessing. What I loved about this story is that what I thought was predictable is not predictable at all. Throughout the book are enchanting descriptions of the Maine countryside so vivid that one can smell the flowers and taste the blueberries. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

More About the Author

As a journalist, Les Picker has cruised on a nuclear attack submarine deep in the Pacific Ocean and has climbed the highest peak in the Pyrenes. He has withstood -50-degree Fahrenheit temperatures photographing in the Arctic and survived +120-degree Fahrenheit temperatures living with a Bedouin tribe in Egypt's Eastern desert. He was nearly bitten by a sea lion in the Galapagos (never stand between a mother and her pup while photographing!) and was chased by a 16-foot alligator in South Africa. His tripod and camera were carried off into the Arctic tundra by a curious Grizzly.

Les has more than 600 writing and photo credits in publications that include National Geographic publications, Better Homes & Gardens, Forbes, Time, Inc., Money, and dozens of others. In 2011 Les was named Best Travel Photographer in the prestigious Canada Northern Lights Award.

While a well-known travel writer and photographer, Les is also passionate about his fiction writing. He has written two works of historical fiction and two of general fiction.

The First Pharaoh is the lead book in The First Dynasty Series. It follows the life, loves and adventures of the first Pharaoh, King Narmer (also known as Menes), the man who unified Upper and Lower Egypt into one rule that lasted for 3,000 years. Anhotek, Narmer's scribe, Vizier and personal shaman, protects Narmer throughout his early years, even from the destructive influence of Narmer's own father, King Scorpion. Through loves, wars and palace intrigue, The First Pharaoh tells the story of a real-life king who created a dynasty that became perhaps the most admired civilization the world has ever known.

In the second book in the series, The Dagger of Isis, we follow the young girl, Mery, as she matures, marries King Wadjet and births him a son and heir to the throne. After Wadjet's tragic death, Mery is crowned King and becomes Meryt-Neith. Serving as her son's regent for 17 years, Meryt-Neith must struggle against the wiles of her cousin who plots to place herself on the throne. She must also battle invading armies and keep her secret love affair from prying eyes. .

The final book of the series will be published in 2013.
