Friday Freebies: The Four Corners of the Sky and The Forever Young Diet and Lifestyle

   Blogger is back! I missed being able to update. Today I have a couple of ebook freebies to tell you about today. The first one is 'The Four Corners of the Sky: A Novel' by Michael Malone. This contemporary novel about love and forgiveness takes place in North Carolina. Annie is a pilot who had not seen or heard from her father in many years. One day, out of the blue, he calls to tell her he is dying and to ask a favor of her. You can read the reviews on Goodreads here. Here is a synopsis from Goodreads.

In small towns between the North Carolina Piedmont and the coast the best scenery is often in the sky. On flat sweeps of red clay and scrub pine the days move monotonously, safely, but above, in the blink of an eye, dangerous clouds can boil out of all four corners of the sky...The flat slow land starts to shiver and anything can happen. In such a storm, on Annie Peregrine's seventh birthday, her father gave her the airplane and minutes later drove out of her life.

Twenty years is a long time to be without a father, and, for Navy pilot Annie Peregrine-Goode, the sky has become a home the earth has never been. So when her father calls out of the blue to ask for a dying wish--one both absurd and mysterious--no is the easiest of answers. Until she hears that the reward is the one thing she always wanted ...

Thus begins an enchanting novel that bursts with energy from the first pages, and sweeps you off on a journey of unforgettable characters, hilarious encounters, and haunting secrets.

   You can pick up the Nook version here, the Kindle version here, the Sony Reader version here, or the Kobo version here.

   The second book is 'The Forever Young Diet and Lifestyle' written by the husband/wife team, James J. O'Keefe and Joan O'Keefe. He is a doctor and she is a registered diatician. You can read the Goodreads reviews here. Here is a synopsis from Amazon.

The Forever Young program is the scientifically based plan that will bring your life back into synch with your genetic identity, restoring your youthful vigor and glow, while at the same time optimizing your health, quality of life, and longevity. --James O'Keefe, MD and Joan O'Keefe, RD
In a field plagued by miracle diets and sketchy information, The Forever Young Diet and Lifestyle presents a commonsense plan that improves satiety; promotes wholesome, fresh, and easily obtained foods; and reinforces a rational, holistic, mind-body approach to diet and lifestyle. The program is a complete package that can help provide a lifetime of energy and good health.
Most of our health problems today result from a mismatch between the world we are designed for and the very different one in which we live. The modern American leading a sedentary lifestyle of automobiles, couches, televisions, computers, and junk food is like a fish out of water. Our genes have changed minimally over the past few thousand years, yet our diets and lifestyles have become progressively more divergent from those of our ancient ancestors.
The Forever Young Diet and Lifestyle outlines the path back to our natural needs and rhythms. Firmly grounded in the medically proven Hunter-Gatherer diet, the plan easily promotes weight loss, vastly improves energy levels, enhances sleep and concentration, and restores the natural youthful glow we should have at any age. Cardiologist James O'Keefe and his wife, Joan, a registered dietitian, provide a down-to-earth, sensible program that's both satisfying and easy to follow.

   You can download the Kindle version here.   This is the only edition available as a freebie this week.
