IN HONOR OF PATRICIA GRAY  250 300 Pale Horse Books

IN HONOR OF PATRICIA GRAY 

Patti was an author, foreign relations specialist, educator, and environmentalist. Her exceptional book, Petra, drew upon her vast knowledge of Jordan and of Hudson River Valley painters, Frederick Church in particular. She had a hand in critiquing half a dozen Pale Horse Books titles as they were being written– always providing the author with just the needed boost to help make a good book great.

From some people we learn very little, from others, like Patricia Gray, we learn the importance of friendship, of stewardship, of revering art—and of creating art worthy of revering.

We learn the value of thoughtful study and thoughtful discourse. We learn that our neighborhood doesn’t end at the end of our street, or even at the farthest shore.  

We learn that we are at most at home when we walk in the woods, preferably in the company of a small dog.  

We learn about courage. We learn about grace. We recognize that we are blessed by knowing them. So very blessed.

The Bruton Parish Story (New Title!) 900 1269 Pale Horse Books

The Bruton Parish Story (New Title!)

In partnership with Bruton Parish Church, we are now distributing The Bruton Parish Story by Donna L. Bailey through this website and on Amazon.com. Produced by The Donning Company Publishers, it’s the latest book on iconic Bruton parish in Colonial Williamsburg. The building was completed in 1715. The parish itself is more than three hundred years old and has been at the crossroads of early American history.

Through the narrative and photos, readers will follow the rich story of the parish, the building, and events witnessed by its people since 1674. Full of images, it expands on the contributions of Dr. W.A.R. Goodwin (colleague of John D. Rockefeller, Jr.) and discusses the role of African Americans. Other sections highlight sacred organ music, notable visitors, and nine of the best known cemetery monuments.

The book concludes with descriptions of ministries undertaken today by this active congregation of the Episcopal Church, both within and beyond its walls.

John Conlee’s Latest Book, The Last Pendragon, Now Available! 1634 2533 Pale Horse Books

John Conlee’s Latest Book, The Last Pendragon, Now Available!

King Arthur, his nephew Sir Gawaine, and most of the other surviving Knights of the Round Table, have “crossed the water” to pursue vengeance upon Sir Launcelot, whose relationship with the Queen has caused the collapse of the Round Table Fellowship.

In the King’s absence, Mordred, King Arthur’s son, reigns supreme in the city as the Prince Regent. When news from abroad suggests that the King may be dead, Mordred lays plans for his own coronation; he summons Britain’s highest nobles to attend the event. Among those nobles is Lute, Mordred’s half-brother and the Earl of Sanham.

What does Mordred have in mind for Lute, who, because he is several months older than Mordred, actually has a greater claim to the throne? Whatever it is, it’s bound to be something quite nasty.
