Two Hearts, One God.? Should Anything Else Matter? Zora Nella Hampton Johnson knows exactly where she comes from—and her daddy won’t let her forget. Of course for that privilege he keeps her in Prada and Kate Spade, Coach and YSL. He chooses her boyfriend, her car, her address, and ignores her love of painting, art, and the old ways of her grandaddy’s soulful AME church—where the hymns pleaded, cajoled, and raised the roof. Her daddy may be a preacher, but some-where among the thousands of church members, the on-site coffee house, and the JumboTron, Zora lost God. And she wants Him back.
Welcome to Cider Island – a town where anyone who’s anyone knows something about someone. It’s just that kind of place. And things get a whole lot stickier for the residents when a businessman visiting the island ends up smothered at the local sugar bush. With maple syrup season in full swing, Ida Noe’s fudge shop is busier than a centipede at a toe counting contest – especially when she’s invited to showcase her world famous Maple Bacon Fudge at Sweeney’s Sugar Bush.

Is There Hope for America?
Over the past seven years America has drifted from her calling—but is it too late? From celebrating gay marriage to the apathetic reaction to the revelation that aborted babies were being ripped apart and sold for profit, America has abandoned her moral center. The decision of President Obama to take the United States down a few notches has resulted in the creation and success of ISIS and Russia invading Ukraine and Syria, without any fear of repercussions. The fact remains that when America is not strong, people suffer. Christian men are being beheaded and their wives and daughters sold as sex slaves. The decisions Americans make in the coming year could be the difference between blessing and curses. Ron Cantor, with prophetic urgency, reminds Americans of what this calling was and the pathway back to blessing. He doesn’t waste words in this short eBook. You’ll read it one sitting and then want to pray for America.
